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...

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...

Tirered eyes that is and it makes concentrating on small details hard, which isn’t great...

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...

“German tank guy” going WWI? Amidst all the fighting with Post Nord about getting their shit together, talking to sellers to resend the lost kits to me and preparing for winter I’ve managed to do some modelling as well. WWI modelling to be more precise! I’m really into German WWII tanks, paper panzers and pure fictional “what if” contraptions. They appeal to me through their engineering – not...
