Pay it Forward Entry – Week 44

This is my submission for the [Pay it forward Curation contest]( run by @thedarkhorse and @pifc.

This week, I’m featuring two bloggers from the @teamaustralia community… It was Australia Day a couple of weeks ago, and as a loyal Australian expat living overseas… I completely forgot about it! So, this is my small attempt to make up for it, so I don’t lose my citizenship!


Model making!

When I was a kid, I LOVED making models! I wasn’t that good at it… but here is someone that is! @andrewsmodels [REP 51] makes models… and I suspect his name is Andrew! Personally, I would have gone for “AndrewMakesModels” as the handle, as it might be confusing for people who are expecting a blog about catwalks!

Anyway, @andrewsmodels posts unboxing and model reviews on both YouTube and DTube. I’m not really a fan of either video service, but I do love the photo blogs that he has made of the model making…. and they are pretty stunning!

Each model making series takes place over quite a few posts. This is the the series for the current work in progress, Trumpeter 1-35 E100 Super Heavy tank. The [unboxing and kit review](, [In Progress Part 1](, [In Progress Part 2]( and [In Progress Part 3](

You also HAVE to check out some of the [finished builds](!


Art and Photography, and general blogging

The blog from (REP 53) feels a lot like my own blog! It is a bit of everything from gardening, artwork through to photography (except for the fact that I can’t draw, take photos and have a questionable experience with our garden!). I mean more, that it is a blog that is really a touch of this or that… seemingly whatever seems to be on their mind at the moment!

This [featured post]( is some really great macro photography from their garden… I really miss the bright colours of the Australian light/Sun. In the Dutch winter, everything is a bit of a gray shade…

However, if [gardening]( is more your thing, there is that!

… or [music reminiscences](

… or [general blogging](!
