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.

 


 

Soviet Valentine

About half of the British Infantry Tank Mk III Valentine production was sent to the Soviet Union during WWII. The tank was liked by its Soviet crews for its reliability and good armor protection.

KV-2 with 107mm ZIS-6

The KV-2 with 107mm ZIS-6 was a prototype test bed for a 107mm gun. It never entered production but I like the look of the beast so decided to model it as an in-service vehicle.

MK44 SternenKnight

I love building these MK44s. They are such an easy kit to assemble and a good pallet for modifications and weathering effects. This is my seventh complete 1/20 MK44.
