You are very talented. The shop worn look is amazingly accurate. Keep up the good work and you are probably getting set for college next fall and an advance happy birthday.

Good luck and best wishes in your endeavors.

Yep, not a lot of interest in college but it's a necessity.

Default Best of Show at Weak Signals

Very neat
check out the model that took best of show at Weak Signals in Toledo

http://toledoshow.com/

Little difficult to tell from the photo, but the overall length of the model is about 7 ft, the tank is about 2 1/2 ft, overall weight about 450 lbs
The tank is its own seperate RC controlled unit from the transporter.
Without seeing it in person you can not appreciate the level of detail involved.

Very nice work Flyboy,

I used to build a lot of military models when I was younger but never was as good as you are. I still have a small stack of WWII warbird kits unopened in the closet. I've been saving them for my son when he gets a little older.

Just a repaint of a stock BF109E in 1/18 scale by 21st century toys.

Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 of Gruppenstab II./JG3 flown by the Gruppenadjutant, Oblt. Franz von Werra.
The Bf 109E-4, Werk Number 1480, flown by Oblt. Franz von Werra of JG3 which crash landed at Winchet Hill, Marden, Kent on the morning of the 5th of September, 1940. Finished in a high demarcation 02/71 splinter pattern there was no discernible mottling applied to either the fin or fuselage sides. The tips of the main wings and the whole of the rudder were painted white, the black-green spinner had two white segments, and the black and white shield of II./JG3 was carried beneath the windscreen on both sides of the aircraft.
Von Werra's Bf 109E, already damaged during a morning freie Jagd over Kent, was again attacked by P/O B.G. Stapleton of 603Sqn forcing him to land his crippled fighter at Love's Farm, Marden, Kent. Taken into captivity and eventually transported to Canada for internment in a PoW camp, von Werra was able to escape to the USA and eventually returned to active duty before being killed on 25 October 1941.
