My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Beware of the snipers!

Good day everyone!
Last night, while painting some figures, I came up with the idea of making a small ''war'' scene of my new US Recce platoon, while entering a small village, somewhere in (where else) Normandy.
While doing so though, a German sniper is watching them. . .
I have made two versions (greyscale & coloured) of the photographs in order to add an artistic touch!
A new tag (War scenes) is born! I think I will be making some every now and then, to show the progress of this project.

US Recce Platoon

Good day everyone!
While looking at my notebook, of my ''must-buy'' stuff, I came across of a US Recce Platoon (generic, tailored made by me), that I decided to make some days ago. For this reason I have bought 2 Italeri's Fast Build M3A1 Halftracks and 2 Italeri's M20 Greyhounds in order to make my drafts a reality!They have been painted with FOW Spray (US Armour) and Vallejo Model colours and washes.
I've also included some figures to ''escort'' them from various manufacturers (mainly Italeri).

I hope you like them!

Good day everyone!

It's been a while since my last post, but due to work reasons I didn't have much time to play with my toys! That didn't prevent me from thinking though (sth that surely is very uncommon for me)!

That's why I decided to make a simple conversion, in order to make some medics for my US troops! I was inspired by Mork's blog (a great blog by the way, you must surely visit it), who used some figures of German common infantrymen to make them medics.

For my ETO US force, I decided to use a figure from Italeri's #6120 set - ''American Infantry'', the ''Bazooka man''!!!

The conversion that I did to him, was simply cutting his weapon from his hand, and by doing that, what was left was a figure giving his hand (or some morphine) to a fellow wounded infantry man.

This is how he turned out (in a group of 3 actually):

I hope you like them!
Comments and critics are more than welcome! :-)

Normandy House with Lamp Posts

Good day everyone!
While spying Normandy towns and villages with Google map application, I came across a house that I decided to make with my wonderous foamcore sheets!
It is a bit bigger than the rest, and it has some lamp posts (Auhagen # 42202) attached on the door's edges.

I hope you like it.
