Daisuke Sakata

So, is our passion just an hobby or is it indeed a form of art? No doubt, in my opinion, that works of Master Daisuke Sakata are, in all respects, masterpieces and they can either motivate us to do our best or push us to burn our Tamiya's queens shelves!

Hiroshi Miura

Some modellers bust my balls  and some others make my heart sing. Hiroshi Miura fall into the latter category. No rivets counter here, no bullshit to sell yet another manual telling us about blind modeller met in South America. Just a good idea, some plastic pieces and plaster to elevate to art our wonderful hobby. Thank you Hiroshi!

DEF.Model Fiat 6614 Polizia with ram wip

In the third part of this wip we' ll glue the upper hull hatchs using cianoacrylate.

I am not satisfied with the rear hatch so I decide to built it with plasticard and Plastruct (90891) quarter round rod 0.8 mm.

  Now we can put on the photoetchs bulletproof glass frames and the water tank filler cap.

Hotchkiss 25 mm Mle. 1934

Another walkaround this time it is about a French antitank gun that I like very much: the Hotchkiss 25 mm Mle. 1934. I took this pictures "dans Le Musée des Blindés de Saumur" last summer.
To reproduce this gun you can use the Redux kit 35005 which is basically the older Heller plastic kit with some resin parts and a photoetch sheet.
Joaquin Garcia Gazquez made a great work with the Redux kit as you can see here:

Also Blitz has this gun in his catalogue (35FS2011) but with a differrent type of  wheel rim:
Have a great modelling time and enjoy my walkaround!
