Thanks guys. Means a lot after such a long time. Believe it or not this week I’m actually sort of pretending to tidy the room so I can break out the three Tigers ready for next week. I need a tiny break and I’ve filled two bins so far. Lol.

Thats the way tony :cheer: :cheer:
I have a list of things I need to do around the house and some furniture I want to build,so going to have a little bit less time for model building over the summer months.
If I have a clean up it only stays clean for a day or so....

Tony, that looks just amazing. I am always a bit dubious about anything in very large scale....so much work is involved to overcome the "looks like a toy" factor. You have certainly mastered that particular art. As was commented above, its hard to believe some of those shots are actually a model.
Can I ask how you display these behemoths? You must have a BIG cabinet!!
Cheers
Tania

Cracking build Tony. Everything is scaled in such a balanced considered way you could almost be fooled into thinking its the real thing.

Thanks everyone it’s been both fun and a steep learning curve this one. Most of the stuff I’ve learned from watching you all at work. Also from following how David Parker and others work wonders withe large scale vehicles. Just amazing. Tania, they clutter up our lounge room. I really need some book cases with glass doors although the added dust actually just makes them look more realistic lol.
