Dwarf trike

Upcoming 15mm dwarf trike, a small light fast attack vehicle, still wip, needs a front wheel and more detailing

M.I.A.S.

the M.I.A.S.

this tiny inter war "tank" was build by the Italians around 1935, it was armed with a small mortar or 2 machine guns.

not sure of I can call this a tank, as you can see there was no place to sit and the soldier needed to hunch over and walk behind it, more like the WW1 wheeled shield then even a tankette, it did a engine, i dont no the armor but going from pictures I guess around 8mm to the front and 5 at the sides.
Made this mostly for fun, I like 1 man tanks and tankettes and this most me the smallest manned "tank" ever build. It also gave a lot of problems for something this small, it was planned to be a weekend build, boy I was wrong, first hull I made was to flimsy so not good, second had the angles wrong and below you can see the third. Then the tracks, at first I made a simple band with lead wire but it did not look good so wen I had a little place over in a mould I added 2 track links to it and casted the rest, only to find out that the wheels I made where too large and now the looks are off, ooh the problems with scratching something from just pictures, so now months later and still on my desk time to restart and see what else I did wrong. In this time I did find a shot of the back without the soldier standing in there so now I can make the engine and guns in there too.

Argus AS 292

Meet the Argus AS 292 a early UAV from 1939, a very simple plane that started out as a target drone but later on a new housing with a camera added and used as a scout/reconnaissance plane instead, about a 100 where build in 1942 and 1943, there was a delay in building because Argus was to busy making engines so this got pushed back a few years.

Length: 2.40 m
Wingspan: 2.40m


 Powerplant: 1 × Argus, 3 hp (2.2 kW); later 6-7 hp

not much to say about it other then that so picture time








and now from the model

Armoured brigade

Armoured brigade.

Part of the back log, this set I did some time ago.

They where based on the anime Wolfs brigade, if you dont know it watch it sometime its a good movie, the idea behind this set is German soldiers with a lot of body armour and a lot of fire power, so we have a MG42 gunner with the ammo belt running too the backpack, a panzerfaust 250, 1 with a C96 which I gave a updated look,  the rest have STG44 with suppressors.

the figures where a bit of a pain to make, because of 2 problems, 1 I wanted to have all the arms fit all the bodies and I wanted to have the body armour look all the same, so I made 1 master figure and the rest where conversion of the casting well that was the plan anyway, that did not really work well, so in the end only the upper body and head where used from casts and most of the rest was sculpted like normal, a lot more work then I planned but in the end it looks better this way.






















 and the boring one, here is where I decided not to use all of the molded parts and sculpt the most parts of the rest of the figures like normal
