Time for tanks

Aleksander Stein is a favorite on this blog; I think you would be hard-pressed to find a more authentic LEGO military modeller. His models forgo artistic embellishment, focusing realism and functionality. The vehicles themselves are extrapolations of specific present day combat vehicles. Some of the examples in the following photos are near-future derivatives the Leopard 2 Main Battle Tank and the Stridsfordon 90 Infantry Fighting Vehicle.
Desert Patrol
I like to judge things over content rather presentation, but Aleks has graduated from the plain poster board school and has stepped up with digital backdrops for his models. This isn't always done well, but I like how Aleks has done well not to make any post-photography additions look to obtrusive; it is clear that the focus is on the models.   
High ground
Camouflage is not easy to do with LEGO parts, but Aleks pulls off convincing enough patterns.

Variations on a theme
This isn't a photo re-color, each of the four models here is a unique construction.

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
