Rapid Fire! 20mm Gulf War - Saladin's Division (part 3): 3rd Tank Regiment of the 12th Tank Brigade
More of the same? No, not exactly. The 3rd Regiment had the same equipment as the other two but now the models are from different brands. The two companies of T-72 (left) are metal Skytrex models; the Co tank (center) is the Revell T-72M1 and, yes, the T-55...

Rapid Fire! 20mm Gulf War - Saladin's Division (part 2): 2nd Tank Regiment of the 12th Tank Brigade
  This Regiment is almost identical to the one showned previously. Four of the T-72s are Revell T-80's conversions, T-55 are also Skytrex and only the T-72 of the Regimental commander is an Altaya model.   The Altaya model had to be repainted and for this o...

Middle East/Arab houses in 20mm (part 3)
Just a few more houses for Arab regions, again made quickly in card.   All entrances are just pieces of card glued to the walls which speeds up procedures a lot. Still plenty of places to place the miniatures on the roof tops.       The shop to the right ha...

Rapid Fire! Russian Contemporary Wars in 1/72nd scale - Troposphere Relay Station vehicle for SS-25 Topol already painted
  The TRS vehicle is already painted. I used a camouflage close to its SS-25 partner, only using Russian Tan from MIG colours instead of Iraqi Sand from Vallejo.     Most of these vehicles I found pictured are not in fact camouflaged but camouflage also hel...

Rapid Fire! Russian Contemporary Wars - Troposphere Relay Station vehicle for SS-25 Topol
I wanted something to go along my 4D Topol. Two different vehicles work together with the Topol: a Launch-Assisting Support vehicle and this Troposphere Relay Station vehicle. Both have the same vehicle as basis, the MAZ-543. So I used another 4D model from...

Rapid Fire! Russian Contemporary wars in 1/72nd scale - How to make your own figures for aircraft and some other additions.
In order to produce quick WWII planes and to reduce its stash I don't place any figures on them for a long time. Like this it's much quicker to have new aircraft as you only need to paint the exterior parts. Somehow I started to do exactly the opposite for ...

Rapid Fire! 20mm - Gulf War 1991 - 82nd Airborne Division.
I know everybody was waiting for me to keep the promise of showing another chapter of one of the most important periods of wargaming: Georgia 2008 (what I'm doing at the moment)! But instead my devious mind was left in the desert once more. You know, summer...
