DSPIAE ST-A Single Blade Nipper 2.0

This is all the hype in the modelling world at the moment – in fact such a hype that these nifty pair of cutters are very hard to get hold of regardless of where you are in the world! I’m also an electronics hobbyist and have tinkered with making all sorts of electronic things since I was a young lad so I’ve always had more than a couple of electronics side cutters. These were also the tools I’ve been using...

On the bench #9

I live in the south of Sweden – a place I partly moved to in order to avoid snow because I’m not a fan of snow. In fact one might even say that I hate snow! This is what I woke up to on Tuesday morning… sigh. The day before this there wasn’t a single snowflake outside, nor was it cold, but most of Europe were given this gift by the easterly winds and a lot of it! The schools are closed and many major roads are...

2018 – The Year of the Panther!

Vignette & Diorama book review X 3

I’m by all means no expert in diorama/vignette making. In fact I see myself as someone who’s just started to learn the black art of this very wide subject and I recently decided to get some books on the subject to improve the basics and to get inspiration and I think I’ve bought three of the very best books on the subject! Vignettes – a how to guide by Joaquin Garcia Gázquez  This book was the first one I...

On the bench #8

Updates Well, Christmas came and went and until a few hours ago I thought I was in the clear for the white miserable stuff but no such luck as the snow is currently falling outside and we’re having a cold spree again… sigh. Spring is withing sight though because soon it’s March and I can say goodbye to winter for a very long time!!! A small miracle did happen last week when I managed to track down the Meng set of WWI...
