Crimean War Jägers (conversion) 1854 Sebastopol

I've been a long time away from the hobby, and here I return with a little 19th century project.

I had this Emhar Crimean War soldiers semi primed, which screamed to be properly cleaned up and made. And so, I searched for inspiration and I stumbled upon the Jagers from the Crimean War, that essentially wore the same uniform but with a different camo scheme. 

Then, I took the chance to make some changes, as they also had artillery figures and I had no cannon to go with them. Doing some fast head and weapon swaps I made to look more combative. 

Hope you like this inside and maybe inspire somebody to do the same.

25 Pounder Field Gun Airfix 1:76 Built Model (01305)

Here is my take on this little classic model. Got it in a random parts lot, and so built it without instructions nor cannon (I have them, but already built) . I went for a unusual two brown camo, and I must say I am very satisfied of the final result.

The improvements were adding front glass, adding a proper bumper, and added lights. I made all wheels to turn properly, making it feel like a little Dinky toy.

s.W.S. Cargo Halftrack with 3.7cm Flak43 Revell 1:35 Built & Painted Model Kit

This is the SWS Halftrack, a nice rather unusual model, I managed to get just for 3 € in a lot (it has to be the cheapest 1:35 kit I've ever bought). Wheels turn, cannon moves up and down. The only snag is that there is no crew included, so had to make a conversion for a man seating at the cannon. Scenario kindly comes offered by the local park :) .

ROLAND C11 Airfix / Heller 1/72 Finished Model Kit World War I

After a long time without posting, here I come back to post something. This is the Roland, I got this from the Heller release, bought in an model kit exhibition. My father built it and I painted it along my brother. The purple camo scheme was the most eye-catching, so we went for that. A very unusual model, one worthy to build;
