MiniArt European Street 1/35

European Street Mini Art – Nr. 36011 – 1/35 MiniArt has some beautiful diorama buildings that are notoriously famous for being hard to assemble, or are they? Ever since I saw a couple of the “European” diorama buildings from MiniArt I really wanted to build one, as a base for a small scenery during the WWII conflict in Europe, but wherever I searched all I found were people telling how hard it was to assemble...

Takom Maus V2 1/35

Maus Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus Takom – Nr. 2050 – 1/35 The mighty Maus was one of the final projects in Hitlers Wunderwaffe programme, and the last one to be built. (apart from one E-100 prototype chassi) Only two were ever built, whereas only one is remaining – in a very sad state in a Russian museum (Kubinka Tank Museum), and it’s the Maus V1 with the V2 turret. If the Maus had been finished and put into production it...

Takom King Tiger Pz.Abt.505 1/35

King Tiger Panzerkampfwagen Tiger Ausf. B (Sd.Kfz.182) Takom – Nr. 2047 – 1/35 The mighty King Tiger, with full interior, from Takom This was a kit I was really excited to build, almost too excited, and I sat for weeks trying to plan how to execute it. I decided early on to upgrade the tracks to Friulmodel ATL-16 and although expensive, I think it was worth it. I do like tracks to be “working”. I’m not a...

Tamiya Nashorn 1/35

Nashorn 8.8cm Pak43/1 auf Geschützwagen III/IV(Sd.Kfz.164) Tamiya – Nr. 35335 – 1/35 This is a kit that shows how Tamiya is the gold standard in plastic scale models because not only is the kit very detailed and interesting to build, the quality of the sprues is amongst the best I’ve ever seen! No flashing, very discreet part lines and marks from the ejector pins – and most importantly – the fit of each...
