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.

Medium Mark A Whippet

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.

I've always been interested in the Pz38(t). Such a small little tank with lots of great little details and rivets.

MK44 H Black Knight

The MK44 H Black Knight is a space varient of the Mk44 White Knight Lunar Descent Assault Unit. The base kit is from Hasegawa with the Love Love Garden resin conversion. The construction of the Hasegawa kit was pretty straightforward. The resin accessory adds more lumps and bumps. The only changes I made were to swap out the rubber kit hoses with coil metal springs.

Sdh 223F SandStalker


The Hexamodel 223F SandStalker is a follow up kit to the 222F. It uses the same basic hull with a smaller turret and a large antenna. The origianl design is not canon but makes a great addition.
