One of the Mainstay for the US and DSHCC Airforce. The iconic four engine turboprop plane can carry a maximum of 92 passengers or 64 airborne troopers. It can travel at a speed of 610km/h and has many variant.
One of the most coolest variant of the Hercules is the one both featured in Transformer and Callof Duty 4. Yes thts right.
Its the AC130 Gunship with its variety of weapons ranging from 30mm machine guns to 105mm Cannon. BAM

Today, we feature the Saab Viggen in digitally-editted format.
The Saab 37 Viggen is a swedish single seat fighter jet for the Swedish Airforce. Maximum spee dof Mach 2.1 and it can carry the usual suspect of american air to air missiles and RB71 Skyflash.
It got phased out in 2005 and was replaced by the JAS 39 Gripen. Last flight of the Viggen was in June 2007.
The cool thing i like about this pic is that the plane is a real micromachine model and the editing has made it look like a picture painting .The Blue hue and the shader for the picture makes the plane look like a very nice pristine drawing that can be a shirt imprint design.
Whats your take?
Monday, December 08, 2008
Obviously a digitally-edited picture but the model of the submarine is real.
The SSN 688i travelling underwater.
Its quite an easy guess for frequent Adobe Photoshop users on what effect is used in this pic.. :P

This is one of my best telescopic macroshot of my military models
I like the focus shot on the trooper while the tank is blurred out. Cool Goggles he is wearing for the desert or urban backdrop.
The Tank is by Micromachines and the Trooper is by Battlefield Evolution. (Love the Desert combat outfit)

Nonetheless, progress is in the midst and you will get to see picture of a great fleet of 1/700 DSHCC ships soon.
Furthermore, i have seen my GHQ models and i am very please at the great detail and the reasonable cost of acquiring the models that i have ordered. The ships are detailed and requires little or no assembling. This is similar to the armour units for GHQ and alli need to do is paint. Less Work for me to do, so that more effort can go to painting it real well.
As for now, Its Dashland Armed Forces M1A2 in an outfield camp geting ready for operations
Hope u guys like the pic and the detail i put into the tanks
See ya next week ;)
Monday, November 17, 2008
I can still remember the time when i saw the first micromachine. At tht time, i was more orientated to Matchbox cars and hotwheels. Both this brands were way bigger in company size and products.. literally. But matchbox was so cool.. wanted to get one.. but never got the opportunity in the end till micromachines military came out.
Enjoy the pics.

And btw, i must give credit to Joshua for the fine picture taking he has done wif regards to the F22 pics. Thanx a lot DUDE! :D

A Vacant Raptor on the Runway
This is a pretty welld one diecast by Majisto though im not too sure about the quality of its recent collectibles. Enjoy. :D

Rolling in the desert sand.. here are the M1A2 from birdsight view.
2 M1A2 SEP from the 52nd ACR of the DSHCC Armed Forces.
Monday, October 06, 2008
Love the M1A2.. I have practically an Abram tank in all scales and sizes. :)
A Dashland M1A2 viewed from the side.
Monday, September 29, 2008
I am sure most of the peeps who see my stuff noe more about the M1A2 stats than i do. here is my completed M1A2 near a guardhouse and ready to move off. Enjoy and do comment pls..

Its the Inflatable from above...
As u can see the inflatable has a more stable structure than normal inflatables with electronic controls for its steering and riding and 3 SAW machine guns to handle any oncoming light threat.
Tht's about it.. I mean how much can u describe a Inflatable boat.. lol.. But at least it is different from the normal naval units you peeps have seen :D
Monday, September 15, 2008
This is the Modern Inflatable boat that can be deployed by the DSHCC Navy Special Forces. It can also hoister three SAW machine guns on itself while traveling at a speed of 50 knots. It requires little time to deflate and inflate and can provide great mobility at sea.
Naval Forces in the foreground while the inflatable floats behind.
A more focus view on the smallest naval unit, the Inflatable :p

Its an Amphibious Attack by the AAV7A1s...
The AAVP71s are the mainstay of the Marines in the Amphibious Assault scenario. This is a hue modified picture of 3 DSHCC AAV7A1s traveling on rocky terrain. I particularly like the Mk19 40mm automatic grenade launcher weapon on the AAV7A1. DEADLY
Been playing COD4 multiplayer for awhile.. So totally in the mood for modern military now, compared to Warhammer.. But its gonna be a while before i get my hands to work on modern military.
Monday, August 25, 2008
All in all, i think that the Type 99 is a very formidable armoured vehicle in the Armour Warfare Scenario today.
Type 99A2 rolling down the street. (Particularly love the Red Chinese Star Insignia on the tank)
The Type 99A2 tank searching for a target.
Definitely taking a more keen interest on the Chinese Armed Forces.. GO CHINA!
AZN PRIDE! lol
Monday, August 18, 2008
Its armour is Composite with ERA and has an operational range of 600km with a speed of 80km/h. It has a smoothbore 125mm cannon, 12.7 mm Commander's Machine gun and a 7.62 Coaxial gun.
The Type 99 MBT along with its brother, Type 98 tank is the answer to the US Armor Superiority. When the Chinese saw the ineffectiveness of the T-72 era tanks against the superiority of the M1 Abrams, the chinese saw a need to answer the call to developing a MBT that will be relevant in today's armoured warfare. The Type 99 is the answer.
The Type 99 rolling among the plains.
On other note, the conflict in Georgia is awaiting a peaceful resolution but on a good light, the conflict has not escalated. At the same time, i have commenced on doing my military campaign game with my good buddies. Other than tht, its all quiet on model progress for modern military.
Friday, August 15, 2008
If u all have not noticed by now.. A new conflict in Eastern Europe has just occurred. Russia and Georgia have been exchanging military attacks on each other in areas of Georgia and the breakway state of South Ossetia for the past week or so.
You can probably catch live updates on this news on Yahoo! News and other news broadcasters. As I post this entry now, Russian military forces have already overrun and disabled much of Georgian’s Armed Forces capability. Russia has also decided to sign a truce with Georgia as they have concluded that Georgia has been punished enough for their actions on South Ossetia.
Live Coverage on the happenings in Georgia so far

Chinhook flying by
Chinhook making the descent.
With regards to my military model plans, i have been considering and might finalise in preparing to purchase GHQ stuff totalling up to about more than 300USD. I will also be planning to purchase an airbrush before that to use it for my Arleigh Burker Destroyer and Ticonderoga VLS Cruiser.
On other news, there has been a military conflict arising between Georgia and Russia that has been escalating. Will touch more about it in another entry. Stay tuned.
Wednesday, July 30, 2008
The collectible is not awesomely done but i hope the background and the shading makes up for it. Enjoy. :D
Other News: Still trying to convince Josh to Buy GHQ... and i hav eyet to do anything from what i last said.... Been busy wif SIMCITY 4 and making my military bases in the cities i have build... Been playing too much of it.. HEHE. it will be a while before i get back on the Modern Military hobby Train of thought..
Wednesday, July 23, 2008
Here is a pic of two Merkavas patrolling around an airport.
Nothing much on my progress of Military Models. Still thinking of what paintbrush to get. Perhaps I might research on stores in KL that provide airbrushes and modelling equipments..
Other than tht, there is nothing much. Still looking on what to buy from GHQ and will consolidate with my frens.

A Did You know fact: The UH-6 has been modified and used as a UAV. It has been used for Unmanned Little Bird Programme to gain experience in Unmanned flight.
The Blue Hue over the Little Birds as a Hummer watch from the Side.
On a side note, although i have and will not be active for military model kits. I have a few more desire to expand my collection. Oh yes.. you bet yer. Im thinking of getting GHQ models for both Air, Land and Sea to paint, on top of what i have now. This will mean getting a collection of a different scale and also integrating the colour green into my collection. As for the near future, I will have to upgrade my Destroyer and fix more ships in the years to come.
Of which, I have a Kirov-class Cruiser, Pyotr Veliky to deal with. An US Amphibious Landing Ship and a few Russian Missile Corvettes to go. Life is hard. :p
Wednesday, July 09, 2008
What really appealed to me is when the Delta force team members were sitting on the side of the birds when they got ready to deploy onto the mission ground. Another great scene is the one where the Little Birds when on a full auto firing run on the Somalians.
The MH-6 has an attack variant called AH-6. To pilot the Little Bird requires a crew of 2, goes at a max speed of 282 kmph and a range of 430km. It can hold an armanent payload of 4 Hellfire Missiles, 70 Hydro Rocket Pods , Two 7.62 M134 Miniguns or Two 50 cal. GAU-19

Different Shade of the Same Pic.
Today, I have been reviewing what i should do in terms of projects when i go back to KL and somehow im in a stuck on what to do. THe reason being the fact that i wanna start out my painting with airbrushing. Only problem is i dun have an airbrush and most good ones cost a lot at the moment.
Thankfully, i found a model shop in Singapore that provides great diorama, airbrush and tools for my model kits that i can probably used next time when i have enough cash to buy it.
As for now, i tink i am goin got take a breather on painting Military stuff. Will still be finding a plastic transparent case for my models.
Thats about it for my projects. In any case, its going smoothly and I am confident i can finish by the end of the year.
There also has been talk about my stigma for green which is relatively true even though the army's primary colour is green in the armed forces. Never liked the blending of green with other colours. Don't ask me why, but it was just some wierd stigma of mine and im sur emany may have noticed in most of my blogs, there is hardly a big splotch of green right up ur face.
But as for now, i want my military collectibles and models to be as realistic as possible. On top of that, somehow i seem to be able to get pass the stigma of the colour green not only in my military collection but also in my other hobby collections.
So you will be seeing green colour real soon :D On top of tht, im actually displaying more green all over my hobby collection. Finally making some changes in my life and my wierd stigma. We all have our idiosyncracies. Some ppl detest the colour red or blue or yellow to similar or different extents, but as for me.. im gonna try to eliminate it once and for all. For all colours brighten up the world.. OH YEAH
Wednesday, July 02, 2008
It has an operational range of 450km, possesses a nuclear, biological and chemical protection system in the turret bustle and is one of the most heaviest armoured main battle tank in the world. Gosh I so love being a nerd. :D
Challenger 2 tank with GDI Troopers on the roll.
As for now, i am just contemplating on how to organise my various pending projects such that i am able to handle them and do it. Thinking of doing airbrushing too but it gets a lil tough on my finances and airbrushing overseas in KL would be pretty hard for myself..
Gotta plan this right.. But now.. just gonna carry on enjoying the hols.. :D
Wednesday, June 25, 2008
Since i shall be doing a few photoshoots with My buddy, Joshua, his collectibles shall be my feature of the day.
Made by Alvis Vickers, this 7.9 million USD British Monster of a Main Battle Tank, the Challenger 2, packs an awesome punch with its 120mm cannon and classified Chobham armor. It has a crew of 4 and travels at a speed of 37mph or 59 kmh. On top of that, it has proven worthy in the Iraq War and has a very good record in terms of survivablity in battle.
I present to you, the Challenger Tank 2 in Black and White.
Josh's Challenger Tank
On a Side Note, I have already finish my Mig 29 and i have already done my paint upgrade for my FOV Soldiers. Need to put the finish touch on my Battlefield EVO Soldiers so i can proceed to work on my next few projects for my military collection.
On top of tht, i seem to be running out of space to display stuff yet again for my Military collection. Might need to think about actually getting some Plastic Cases to create more "top"level spaces, or fully utilised wasted vertical space. But of course, that will also depend on my finances. :D
Till next entry. Cheers
Friday, May 23, 2008
Funfact: Did u noe that although its maiden flight was in 19 march 1989, its initial introduction was 8 December 2005, some 16 years later. Crazy shit.
Anyway, it seems to be the future even though its cost is quite hefty too due to the Iraq war.
DSHCC Airforce Base with V22
Notification to all, I will be finishing up painting my Forces of Valour Infantry and My Mig 29 by tail end of June and start with the next project for the holiday break.
Furthermore, i will be going on a hiatus to attend to my busy exam schedule. I will be returning with entries by the tail end of June. The next entry shall start around 25th June. Till then, hang tight and do come back when im back ;)

Zoom Zoom (Yes im fully aware tht this Micromachine lacks the fine details)
Although the Osprey cost 70 million now, the US Defense hopes to shave the cost by another 10 million. In any case though, research for new warmachines of the future cost a lot. The V22 Osprey does not even take up a significant proportion and its programme cost is already 50.5 billion dollars in 2005. OUCH
Th progress of my mig 29 is near the completion mark. The primary coat has been totally applied and now i am proceeding to do my final highlight an dfinishing up the Mig 29 and proceeding by painting the Force of Valour Figures.
Friday, May 09, 2008
The hybrid of the sky. Half helo, Half plane, This flying machine is iconic to the US Navyand Marine for its land forces operations.
The Osprey is the world's first production tiltrotor aircraft, with one three-bladed proprotor, turboprop engine, and transmission nacelle mounted on each wingtip.
It can carry a maximum of 32 troops and travelled at a max speed of 509 kmph.
It has minimum machine gun armanent. Despite many controversies and issue with the V22, it has performed well in conflict zones and it proven battle worthy as a transport carrier as it has also replaced the CH46 Seaknights in the Marine Corp.
On a side note, Im already attaching the missiles of the Mig 29 together and i will be applying the second coat to make the Mig 29 look pristine and nice. This will also be followed by inking. Things have been pretty much busy still. But at least for now, i have a breather for the weekend in which i can relax before the going gets tough. Too tough to get into my hobbies again. :p
Friday, May 02, 2008
This is a rather plain picture. as i lack the diorama, but well.. i dont have an abundance of cash. Hence i havent really got nice dioramas. But still love the BFE figures.. They look really awesome. The quality is not bad in my honest opinion. So here they are.. British Troops! Provided by Joshua
GDI Troops Lead by the Special Force Unit with the Jungle Hat, in the plain desert.
SAS lead the way!!!
Well.. its been a while.. And progress is put to a halt this week as i make my way back to the motherland for a short stint.. before i continue my life back in KL. So nothing much going on. The Future of Warfare entry will come soon. So Dun worry.. relax and it will come soon.
Friday, April 25, 2008
And so as the roar of the engines echo throughout the large expanse of the airbase, the F15D lurch forward.. gaining a fistful of thrust and increase in such immense speed to go airborne.
This pic shows a close-up of the F15D going airborne. The Angle of the shot is nicely done with a slight tinge of the silouette effect going on. Fantastika! And the sky background gives a very nice feel to the picture.. LOVE SKY!!!
DSHCC F15D lifts off for Fire Mission..
On a sidenote, it will be in no time before my Mig 29 is done and i shall be moving on to another military project. But of all the kits and painting i needa do, its the ships that will be the tough task. Have to do some upgrades for my Arleigh Burke Destroyer too.
Well its a brief entry this time.. Going off to get some rest.
Friday, April 18, 2008
Im Just so in love with the pinpoint macros of the SLR Camera that makes the F15D look all the more special. Great plane that will definitely be a dominant fighter for many long years to come.
It is also good to know that Singapore will have a set of thiese battle proven airforce fighters.
Onto model kit progress, i seem to have a brief moment of time in the start of the week and was able to assemble the entire Mig 29 without weapons and with primary colour put on. So progress is good and i should be done in no time. But gotta try and salvage some flaws in my model kit but other than tht.. I should be starting on my Forces of Valour infantry.. after doing the Mig 29 in a jiffy.
Thursday, April 10, 2008
Personally i think it is not bad a picture as ift shows the F15 from a different angle and the contrast of colours is a fitting shade for sunset period.
The stats of the F15D have been said before. This time.. this entry will let the picture do more of the talking as it shows its fearsome structure and powerful Engines
DSHCC Airforce F15D in a anonymous airbase... Sunsets on the eagle.
With regards to my military modelling... Still on the Mig.. with some progress done, which is good, knowing that things have been so crazy since the last entry. Will probably proceed to do more on it... Other than tht.. there has been nothing much going on with regards to military models. But im sure there will be something up soon.
Thursday, April 03, 2008
Today, it is features the Sharpshooter of the Squad. Still in the Same scene.. The Focus is on th esection's sharpshooter in a firing position.. ready for any enemy attack.
The squad stands in a defensive formation behind the sharpshooter.. combing the urban area.
Yet another photo with similar effects.
GDI Sharpshooter.. checking for any dissidents or enemies in the urban area.
What can i say? Life is full of things that are interrupting my plans i have for the hobby or it just destroys time that is required to do other stuff. I have been dormant for quite a while due to my work outside my hobbies.
Like they say, every plan doesnt survive its first contact.. and it is sounding more true as each day goes by...
Will let you noe about it more. With regards to finding BFE miniatures... will help u guys find a few places.. The webbie josh has mentioned practically sold out on all of it. Will see what else is going around for it
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
Its been a long rough days since i last posted, hope u all understand the crazines sof life sometimes,
Now i shall be featuring some Battlefield Evolution Figures that are provided by both Joshua and Me. This pic is provided by Joshua's Power SLR Camera and it features some UK troops. Pretty Awesome figures as the previous entry figures. The eyes are a lil wierd but i must say, it still looks good for the scale.
Here U have a section of Troopers combing a Conflict Urban Area and searching for enemy units. The Picture is quite cool in the fact that the SLR focuses on the Jungle Hat Soldier in the foreground than the background unit... I have also put the whole B&W look to it.. to give it a nice ambience.
GDI Troopers on the Prowl.
Hi all, Its been rough days and nights.. little sleep and little shit. I havent touch my mig since i am back. But i am already planning on what else to bring to KL to do a paint job. It will most probably be the Soldiers in the Forces of Valour in which i will remodify some colour codes of the figures.
But as for now, i gotta catchup on life and energy before i can continue my project.
Enjoy the Entry!
Friday, March 14, 2008
So without furthur ado, here is my first pic which is a really nice perspective one of a squad of DSHCC Marine soldiers witht he bright sky background behind them. Making them silouettes and having the whole "Band of Brother" theme to it.
A real nice pic arranged by Josh and I and it took us a while to get it to the right sharpness and detail.
This figures are from the Battlefield Evolution Set which I bought and Josh gave to me from the US. Awesome Figures and great details for something of tht scale which is 1/72.
Onto news down here, I am still in the midst of making the Mig 29, but i am also busy being a study freak and a party animal. So theres hardly anytime left to do my project. But i will get on to it soon. Thats for sure.. Now its time to get drunken like a sailor.. and party like a soldier ;)
Friday, March 07, 2008
The background is natural. All we needed to do is get the right angle, so that the silouette will look perfect. We got 3 nice shots from the photoshoot tht required the British Soldier Model.
The model was also graciously provided by Joshua.
All the pic gives a sense of solitude in the midst of War Conflict. It gives a personal perspective to being in a warfront as it shows the British Soldier having some solo time while on guard patrol. I really like the whole atmosphere of the picture and it gives a sense of security and warmth when i look at it.. As i noe that all countries have their individual soldiers who are defending their nation while we get to enjoy the peace anad luxury of civilian life.
Hope u like the pics.
Mel, the British soldier, slings his MG over his shoulder while the sunsets before him.
MG over his shoulder, Mel looks onward to the horizon.. Contemplating about life back at home..
And with regards to making my Mig 29, im HARD AT WORK.. for this weekend.. but i must say.. its been busy for me the past week and so I will need be taking a breather from work and do some fixing up! I shud have brought more models but oh well... dun tink i will have time as my curriculum gets more packed.
