28mm Sheriff Justice

While browsing in one of online shops specializing in figures I found this little fellow. One look at his beer muscle and smiley face made me to purchase him.
It's one piece metal figure released by German brand I never heard before. Since there was no assembly involved, I could enjoy painting it right away.

1/72 Abrams 1st Cavalry "Desert Shield" - Dragon

Publishing my builds I almost forgot to mention quite important one for me. It was my first model built after 10 years break, first tank in small scale ever. It was also a present for friend of mine which served in 1st Cavalry Division during Desert Shield & Desert Storm. I decided to build model of his tank during these operations.
Mark in his earlier Abrams

To achieve this goal, I bought in local hobby store 1/72 Abrams model kit by Dragon. In fact I had no choice at all, since it was the only one Abrams in 1/72nd available there.

54mm Polish Knight XIIIth Century - Valiant

My first ever painted figure in 54mm (1/32) scale was Polish knight from Valiant Miniatures line.
Since it does not contain too many pieces, the assembly went pretty quickly. The only problem I can address is partially missing texture of chain link armour on the upper sides of arms, which probably is caused by mold's wear over the time. I tried to fix this issue with help of Dremel and a number of different bits.
Having figure assembled, I could focus on painting. First I applied base colors.

1/72 E-100 German Heavy Tank, Dragon

Another of my builds is WWII German heavy tank E-100. In fact this vehicle never entered the service, and only one hull was completed.

28mm Polish Special Forces AD 2050

While browsing one of modeling forums, I saw Space Marines Bike from Warhammer 40K, which really caught my attention. I had to get one.
When I started working on this, I decided to add some details, to make it more realistic :)

1/72 BA-I Soviet Armored Car UM

Since I finally started blog, I decided to initially show my previous models. One of my first AFV models built was Soviet armored car BA-I released by UM company.
