Small vignette representing a Panzerkampfwagen B2 740 (f) of the 102nd Panzer Battalion during the "Barbarossa" operation against the Red Army (June 1941). Only minor changes were made and the model is almost built right out of the box.

G.M.C. CCKW-353

Some pics of the second model I found along the Ford Mutt in my old teenager's bedroom: Heller's old kit of the famous G.M.C. CCKW-353 cargo truck. This was a very nice present I received from one of my grandfather's friends and ex-colleague from the SABENA. Some hours of pure fun... Thanks Nico!

M151A2 Ford Mutt with M416 Cargo Trailer

Here are some pics of the first projects I made once I started back 3 years ago till now. I plan to show more step by step projects in the future.

First project: Tamyiya's M151A2 Ford Mutt with M416 Cargo Trailer (Vietnam War)

I found this Tamiya kit with in my old teenager's bedroom at my parents' place and couldn't resist gluing all those little pieces together as I used to when I was a kid. At that time I didn't know I would catch the modelling virus back.... One month after I started this project, the 1st Art of Modelling album came out ... naturally I subscribed and became addicted to modelling once again... this is why I decided to buy some vintage Verlinden figures and to build a diorama.
