My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Good day and good week everyone!!!

Last weekend I bought Italeri's fast-build Shermans M4 A3. Each sprue(tank) comes in grey colour and in twelve pieces, which are very detailed (at least for the purpose they are destined for).
This kit also has decals (hoorraaayyy), and a separate sheet of how to apply them, depending on the war theatre someone wants to use them for.
If you want numbers for your Tiger opponents....go fo it!! They catch fire very easily, so you'll probably need many!! :-)

I hope you like them!

Two stonehouses in Normandy - Completed!

Good day and good week to everyone!

I have finally managed to finish these two stonehouses for my Normandy Project.
In addition to the usual stuff I use for the finishing touches, I decided to add some mold (I hope it is the correct word) on the rooftop. In order to achieve this, I used some Vallejo's Russian Uniform colour, thinned in water. With a fine brush, and a little bit of patience, I tried to gave an additional realistic touch on the rooftop!

I hope you like it!

Any comments are more than welcome!!

W.I.P - Two stonehouses in Normandy...

Good day everyone!
Last weekend, while reading a book I bought from Heathrow airport (during my travelling to England) - Max Hastings' - ''OVERLORD'' / DDay and the battle for Normandy (great book by the way, I suggest it without any doubt) I came up with the idea, that I must start producing terrain pieces as fast as possible, because there were so many aspects involved (beaches, villages, towns, hedgerows etc.) in this campaign. It always occured to me that the campaing was a huge thing, but when I started reading more thoroghly about it, the impact of its vastness was very strong!!! :-)
Because of this book, I decided to try something different in my house-building methods (other terrain pieces will get their share of thought later). :-)
In this photo sequence, two small flats (in Normandy, just in case you forgot it) are shown.
I decided not to add floors in it, in order to create them faster than usual.
It is still W.I.P, which means that some goodies will be added (roofs, chimneys, drainpipes, weathering, etc.), but the basic look will not be altered drastically!

I hope you like them!

Near the poplars. . .

Good day everyone!!!

First of all, let me apologize for my absence, but due to business reasons, I had to travel from Greece to England for quite a few times during these past three weeks.

Below is something that I've made last Tuesday. It is something complementary for my project, and it can be used in other ''fields'' as well.
It is based on a simple vinyl tile. Great stuff, and very durable (try to find some for your projects)!
The fence, is self made (2mm balsa wood), the hedges are Woodland Scenics' Cluster Foliage (Medium Green), and the tress are Noch's Poplar trees.

An easy construction, that can be used alongside my buildings (sth for a must needed change, if I may say)! :-)

I hope you like it!
