This is quite a curious piece of conversion :) . I bought a Dornier do 27 Revell, in 1/32, dead cheap on eBay (8 GBP maybe? ridiculously cheap), and, due to my tremendous dislike of anything post 1945, which at that time was still fervent in me, I looked how to convert it into something suitably worldwartwoesque. I found that the Imam Ro 63 had it's certain similarities, and so I did that, transform slightly without too much work into it.
I added epoxy to the tail, painted over some parts of glass, and hand crafted decals so they looked right. At least is a nice what-if WW2 would have kept on and on.
Yes, sounds quite bonkers :lol: . But don't tell me it is unique! anyway, here are the pictures;

Russian Field Car GAZ67B Tamiya MM121 Built Painted russian jeep WW2
GAZ Jeep; this is a kit I restored also, but this I bought built, but unpainted. I repaired it and made a new windglass. I used it as testbed for airbrushing, to test my skills on the airbrush I am still learning how to use, my first model kit airbrushed.

Flakpanzer Gepard Tamiya 1/35 built model kit German modern tank
Flakpanzer Gepard Tamiya; I bought a lot of kits in various conditions, and this came built, painted in standard green, lacking one gun and damaged decals and some broken pieces. Hence, I took to restore it, I casted the gun but the moulded piece broke, so I did again from scratch. I repainted as "gepard", in a real camo which somehow, for the fun of it I guess, was painted as such :P . Curiously, I left it half finished for a few years, and when I was going to finish it, Takom released it's version of it! I hand painted the logo and added weathering. Couldn't resist myself to do a bit of photoshopping on the 3rd picture and made it firing :) .

Puma Sdkfz 234 Norway 1940 Italeri 1:35 Model Kit
Puma, Norway 1940; following the boxart of a vintage model kit, that showed a very striking camouflage :) . I couldn't confirm it's veracity, but can't rule it out either, and was fun to do. Kit bought in a model kit exhibition, at first I thought about getting rid of it, but then decided to build it. This is the very early kit from Italeri, a bit lacking in some aspects, but gives a nice feeling of sort of very early WW2 vibe

T-34/85 Spring 1942 Italeri Zvezda 1/35 built painted model kit
T-34/85; one of my oldest 1/35 builds. Bought it when a local model kit shop was closing down, and hence it was on sale, as usually they were prohibitively expensive, at least compared with any 1/72 model kits, those days that buying off internet seemed impossible. In those times, as I believed I would never have many 1/35 kits, I set myself on trying to detail the interior, without much info available (about 20 years ago.)

Italeri Horch 1/35 Greece campaign WW2 Built painted model kit 1941
Horch; a kit I bought in a flea market for just 10 €. A kit I was looking for for a very long time! much bigger than what I expected. Painted as a real sample seen in a wartime pic, operating in Greece. I interpreted the black and white pic as this, maybe a bit fancifully, but probably impossible to determine the real colours! (no attempt has been done that I have been able to find to make a colour plate out of it) the bonus men that come with the kit are wonderful and give life to everything.
