On the bench #5

I don’t know what happened but it’s already the end of November and in a few days it’s only a month until Christmas?! This year went quick – that’s for sure! The last couple of weeks I’ve been planning what to do next year in modelling. What projects to undertake and which group builds to join, and I think I’ve committed to more than I’d planned to in both departments… Projects and...

Schwerer Gustav railway gun

Schwerer Gustav railway gun

Yes, I’ve gone and done it. I’ve bought the Hobby Boss Dora #82911 1/72 railway gun and it’s going to be built as the Schwerer Gustav. I’ve been looking at this model, and the 1/35 scale version, since the beginning of the summer almost every day. The 1/35 scale version is just too big, and possibly also too expensive, to build and put somewhere, but in 1/72 scale it’s a whole different thing. It’s...

Entwicklungs-fahrzeug Sammlung

Background This is the bonkers of all bonkers projects – the Entwicklungsfahrzeug Sammlung; a complete lineup of all E-series tanks and variants in 1/35 scale!!! But all these tanks are fictional so how, why and what to base it on then? Well, there have been more than a few pure fictional E-tanks throughout the years stemming from computer games, images and fictional scratch building. I’m going to base...

Incoming models for review 12.11.18

Incoming kits, models and products for review – now that the postal service seems to work again… After having major issues with Post Nord in Sweden things now seems to work again, but it required a lot of registered complaints and legal action… The money I lost from having to pay double shipping costs on many packages that were simply returned instead of delivered was impossible to claim back. Apparently mail in 2017...

E-100 Triplets

Like the title says – this is a triplet build with the three different 1/35 E-100 variants from Amusing Hobby and they’re going to be built in stages. The first E-100 (Panzer) is already built and is waiting for paint whereas the Flakzwilling is built as a GB next year. The Jagdpanzer will be built when the Flakzwilling is done. The plan is to paint all three of them at the same time since they’re all going to be...

AA gun Group Build 2018

Starting January 1:st I’m joining an AA gun group build over at the modelling forum on www.scale-models.co.uk I joined this group build before hatching the idea for the E-100 triplets (Panzer, Jagdpanzer and Flakpanzer) so this GB is going to be the 2:nd part in the 3 tank build. (The E-100 Panzer is already started and is just about to receive its first coat of paint any day now…) The chosen AA gun for the GB is the...
