Nagato hull and deck painted .Weathering and oil washes will be next before i start adding smaller etch details.Note the unrealistic yellow tint of the wooden deck  compared with the painted plastic deck.I thought it was  looking too unrealistic for the scale despite having some nice planking detail.I wanted to have a more tired and used look , as the rest of the ship will be also weathered to a certain degree.Despite the somewhat Spartan superstructure , i have found the room /need for quite a few additions and replacements so far.

The 1/700 Scharnhorst with most of the etch parts from the Flyhawk set , built and painted.Waiting for weathering and the addition of the smaller details.

A Merkava from the 1/72 Revell kit again.
The only picture i got left with , from PzIV conversion to represent an Africa Corps tank.
Another Panther , this time in Normandy area..

A Revell 1/72 Panther as a command vehicle version, somewhere in Russia.

A knocked out Tiger II at the Ardennes front .Tow cable again a bit oversized as it was used a bicycle brake cable.
The only picture of a halftrack conversion to an anti tank version.From the Revell kit in 1/72.

A Tiger I in Russia at some point.

A destroyed T-55 from a Russian manufacturer .The tracks were cut at each link and reglued piece by piece as to give the characteristic  shag for this tank.

If i rember well this Tiger II was at Normandy front or in Western front anyway.

A die cast kit from Dragon i think with a few touch ups to the paint job.I  didnt like the soft vinyl tracks but i didnt have the courage to replace them .

A JagdPanther command vehicle .A few mods were made to the original kit .

A KV heavy tank from PST if i remember well.

One of the last Tiger II Germany managed to complete.Note the half finished sprayed camo
