When I first started making the T-14 Armata, I painted up 3 or of them for myself. A few days later a customer ordered 5 or 6 packs of them (25-30 total) …. well as the guy that makes these models I could not have a someone else having more of them than me … so I painted up 27 more tonight 🙂
I just finished this model. It’s a new kit from GameCraft. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
A while ago I built a model of the Iraqi Ministry of Justice building that resides at the intersection of Haifa St and Nasir St. in downtown Baghdad. If I don’t say so myself, it’s a pretty impressive model. I also noticed that the building across the street, the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs is a mirror image of the same building with the exception of a bit of the “tail” cut off. So making that building would be a piece of cake since I have the MoJ building already designed in CAD … just mirror the drawing and chop off the bit that’s missing on the other building. Once I thought about doing this second building, I got the crazy idea of doing a set of game boards around the area where these buildings live. I figured out that I could do four boards at 20″ x 20″ (my standard board size) and take in this area very nicely. I’ll have to think about this … these two buildings would the centerpiece of the project, but there would also need to be a few hundred smaller buildings around the neighborhood,,, and that’s where the real work would be.
The first photo shows the area being considered, shown in 4 20″ x 20″ boards. The next two show my existing Iraqi MoJ building model.
I now have three of these M1 Abrams Tank Battalions , each one has it’s own Tank Transporter.
