Here's a little A-10 Thunderbolt II/Warthog. The design is admittedly mostly someone else's work, but I can't for the life of me find it. So sorry whoever you are. The design shows the A-10's characteristic GAU-8 autocannon sticking out the front. The black hinge pieces under the wings are supposed to represent mounted missiles, gun... Continue Reading →
This is my Lego StuG IV. The German StuG IV evolved from the success of the StuG III, which was technically an assault gun intended to support infantry, but excelled as a tank destroyer. The lack of a turret allowed for thicker effective armor and a lower profile, in exchange for gun mobility. The StuG... Continue Reading →
This is my Lego version of a German Panzer IV tank from World War II. This particular model is the Ausf. H, which was the main production version. It was the most produced tank of Germany. The weird walls on the tank's sides and turret are called Schurzen skirts, and they helped with protecting the hull.... Continue Reading →
I didn't really like the look of the front axle of my Sdkfz. 251 Halftrack. I changed out the basic swivel for one that allows the wheels to rotate in parallel, like they would in real life.
The famous Sdkfz. 251 was a German halftrack that served in both troop transportation and offensive roles. Panzergrenadier troops had to keep up with their tanks during battle, and the armored 251 fit this role well. The 251 was also used as an anti-infantry and anti-tank platform. The 251/22 was armed with a 20mm cannon... Continue Reading →
This build is the German Panther tank. It was designed to counter the Soviet T-34, which was giving German Panzer IV's quite a hard time on the Eastern Front. The Panther was speedy, and it's armor and gun were formidable. It's gun was rivaled only by the Allies in the British Sherman Firefly 17-pounder. Unfortunately for the Germans, early...

This is a build of the American Sherman tank. This version is the M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" variant, built with slightly thicker armor, a larger gun, and a better suspension. It was designed in response to heavier German tanks, which proved themselves to be quite the challenge for the standard Sherman 75mm gun to penetrate. The... Continue Reading →
This is my rendition of the famous Mustang fighter used by the Americans in World War II. It was an exceptional long-range escort for bombers, like the B-17 Flying Fortress. My version includes black-and-white "Invasion Stripes", that helped pilots differentiate between enemy and friendly aircraft in low-visibility situations. Probably the most famous of these low-visibility... Continue Reading →
