    Gob-smackingly awesome. Wow, so impressive with such detail.

    I have never ever seen such attention to detail, even my old man who used to scratch build loco's would have been impressed and he was hard to please and a perfectionist

    I was hoping you'd pop up mate, so I can rep you here :D.
    I'd really like to see this chap's stuff in the flesh, think I may be overdue a trip to a model engineering exhibition.

    There was a chap at Beltring with a beautiful large scale model of a Tiger he was machining from brass and Aluminium.
    Not sure this is the same man, but it's top-notch advanced modelling nonetheless:

    Simply modelling at its very best. Great sites that you posted.
    Thanks a lot.

    Glad you pointed out the weapons. I had not looked at them. I like that Thompson.

    I'm trying to decide if they actually fire and if they are considered firearms (and subject to laws) if they do.

    Super modelling/miniture engineering on that Sherman.

    (maybe Drew should learn French & join that 1940 forum too ;) )

    Dedication, concentration, self-honesty and skill, lots of skill.

    Awesome, indeed!

    And don't think of it as stealing, more liberating with a benevolent intent. Honest, officer!

    Have some Rep, Seb.
    It really is a cracker, doubtless it'll spread to other modelling sites and hopefully we'll see some more pictures.

    You ain't kidding about the skill, Za. Boggles my mind when my dad scratch-builds tanks from old bits of scrap wood, but this is beyond remarkable, 27 machining steps per track link... So at 78/79 links per track, after c.2100 operations, you've got... a single side of tracks, presumably without pins... No wonder it's taken 20 years.
