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.

MK44 SaturnKnight

I really enjoy building the MK44 kits. This is number 6. The SaturnKnight is a scratch build based on the standard MK44 Smart Gun kit. I used bits and pieces from the spares bin and a lot of epoxy putty to come up with the shapes.

Venusuit

The Venusuit was offered as a limited run resin kit several years ago. I wasn't able to acquire the kit at the time of release. With no sign of a rerelease, I decided to scratch build my own.
