New Panther tanks with accompanying infantry.
Here I revisit an old model I first built in the 1970s, posed with some of the accessories I have lately completed for such Luftwaffe projects.
Scratch-built hangar, Airfix Do17E, Dragon He219-A5, Roden Opel Tankwagen, Esci Opel Blitz, Airfix and Zvezda Luftwaffe personnel, and Hasegawa pilots.
I could issue many caveats about the hangar, regarding its accuracy and scale and what not… but I won’t. It’s a more than satisfactory prop, I’ve decided, and it was fun to build!

My son and I got these shots while we had the diorama out for my previous Phantom post. These pre-painted, easy-assembly kits from Squadron Models look quite nice and make […]
I’m realizing lately that a lot of times I seem to be trying to revisit childhood memories with my hobby. I don’t know if that’s terribly healthy, but for whatever it’s worth, here is my Phantom — pun intended?
This Lancaster turned out really well, if I do say so… Here I have posed it with other Airfix accoutrements, such as the Control Tower, R.A.F. Personnel and the WWII RAF Bomber Re-Supply Set.
This modest setup was inspired by the Rommel in Africa books I recently reviewed. I have attempted to show a “Rommel” figure (one in and one out of the Sdkfz. 250/3 command vehicle) as if he is touring a defensive line or camp under construction.
As my adult model-building hobby era has continued apace, building a new version of this old favorite was on my to-do list, and here I share the results of building Heller’s kit of the “Tante Ju,” imagined on a snowy airstrip.
