Ettore Galasso Scale Models
Welcome to the Scale Model section of my website.
Here you can see my most recent production, the one that belongs to what I call the “modern military wehicles” period.
I’m a scale modeler since I was twelve years old. I started assembling racing motorcycles in 1/12 scale; then I shifted to Formula One cars and, after a few years of pause, I began the “modern military aircrafts and helicopters” period that lasted for several years. After aircrafts I had a quick flirt with rally cars and then with Moto GP motorcycles; finally I entered into the current “modern military vehicles” period.
I recently approached 3D design and printing to make parts or add-ons for my models that I couldn’t find in the market. I then decided to make my products available to the scale modellers community through my shop Priamide Models on shapeways.com.
If you are you looking for that part that will complete your model and make it outstanding you should have a look at my parts and, in case you don’t find what you are looking for, ask me; maybe it’s already in my pipeline or I could make it for you.
This is the last model that I have completed a Special Forces Dumvee based on the Tamiya M1025 kit, ugraded with Legend “Special Forces GMV Conversion Set“ (LF1212).

At the moment I’m building an M-ATV with CROW II RWS using Panda kit PH35007. I will detail interiors with Pro-Art Models Update Set for Interior (PAU-35053).
The kit is very tough to build, nothing fits the way it should; on the positive side, details are very good.
There are many construction and picture threads mainly on Armorama and elsewhere that I’m referring to; here below a list:
- The M-ATV discussion thread
- Pascal’s M-ATV (Panda 1/35)
- Panda M-ATV build and improvements
- M-ATV wip, Panda kit, 1/35
- Pictures M-ATV exter/inter
- M-ATV Oshkosh MRAP-All Terrain Vehicle In Box Review
- MRAP, All-Terrain Vehicle a photo feature by Chris Green
- Oshkosh M-ATV
- Panda M-ATV WIP (very clear and useful, while in Korean)
Additional references that I’m using are:
– the book published by AK Interactive “Oshkosh M-ATV – Photo Walk Around” by Ralph Zwilling and Jeffrey DeRosa;
– the “M-ATV Photo Reference CD-ROM” by Robert Skipper (18bravo);
both includes a lot of very useful pictures with close views of up and under parts of the vehicle.
