Hi guys, just signed up today! :D

My name is Alexander, I'm 17 years old and have been modeling for like 5 years or so.
I have only started to actually get good so don't be too hard on me. lol I have seen lots of fine work here and I know my stuff is nothing compared to it but I hope you enjoy anyway. :)




My main interest is Radio control planes. As for modeling, I collect/paint/build/scratchbuild mostly in 1/18 scale. The company that made the large scale vehicles/plane/figures is gone now but there still around. THey are very big also! That's part of the reason I love them!!! They are not museum quality but okay for a large size. Great bases for super detailing though!!!! The figures are basically action figures but I still paint them and display them! It is fun in a way to have poseable figures. I do model is smaller scales like 1/35. 1/32, 1/72, ect.. but not as much. I just like the big stuff!
Anyway, here is some of my work! I have LOTS more to come including a MASSIVE battle of the bulge diorama. Yo will get to see little bits of it as I continue!

great work! where do you get 1/18 kits?

They are from a company 21st century toys ultimate soldier. The tanks/planes come pre built with eh paint jobs but they are GREAT bases for super detailing and customizing. The details are average but the size is nice!!! I do alot of scratch building though. :)
