Welcome to Krueger's Krieger
This site is a gallery of my finished builds, in-progress projects, tips, reviews, and reference articles. I have expanded my interests into armor modeling but the main focus of this site is still SF3D/Maschinen Krieger.
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 Japanese company picked up the rights to make plastic kits 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.
The Riesen Panzer IV is an original design resin garage kit produced by NZ Industrial from Japan. The web site is all in Japanese but what I have been able to translate is during WWII the Germans set up a base on Mars. There they discovered some previous civilization's culture and technology. The engineers built armored walking suits based on this technology. After that I couldn't make much sense out of the machine translation. Cool looking stuff though.
The Medium Mark A Whippet was a WWI light British tank developed to take advantage of the breakthrough path created by the slower heavier tanks. With a top speed of 8.3mph, this was a real rocket! I have been interested in the Whippet since I read a FSM article about it in the mid 80s and have always wanted to build one.
