|Welcome to Krueger's Krieger, my SF3D - Ma.K 3000 model site.
SF3D was a Sci Fi plastic model series which ran during the mid 1980s. The series was created by artist Kow Yokoyama with Kunitaka Imai and Hiroshi Ichimura. SF3D was introduced in the Hobby Japan Magazine as a special monthly installment of scratch built models. Nitto, a small model making company picked up the rights to make plastic models of Kow's designs. The models produced were very high quality with crisp molding, fine details and they included copper rod, brass tube, spring coils, and photo-etched parts. They were one of the first multimedia kits produced. The series ended after a few years. In 1998, the series was reintroduced by Nitto and Kow under the new name Maschinen Krieger Zbv 3000. Or simply MaK
The main focus of this site is the Ma.K. 3000 model. This site will include model making tips, kit building tips and a gallery of my buildups.

|Site Disclaimer: The first focus of my efforts with the spare time that I may have is the whole focus of this site, building SF3D/MaK models. So by saying that, I am telling you that there may and will be times when this site goes without any updates. I apologize ahead of time for that, but with a family and a full time job, there is not a lot of free time for much else.|
|Disclaimer: The purpose of this site is not to profit form the hard work Kow Yokoyama, Kunitaka Imai, Hiroshi Ichimura and others have spent on this series.
