Those look so professionally done, Wallace! You really have a lot of talent there. What material do you use to make them. Really awesome.

I remember going to a model store which only sold model related stuff back in Calgary Alberta Canada.... I was amazed at how much stuff they had and they were all so detailed....it was such a fun store to browse.

Good job, Wallace :terrific:
I remember making boat models with my brothers. Time consuming but much fun to do.
A pity I have no photo's of it.

Wallace - something tells me there is a story behind these excellent fabrications.

For the first 20 years of my life I lived in an area called the 'home of the British Army'. One morning there was an almighty crashing noise from our fish shop (closed at the time) in front of the house and we rushed to see what had happened; one of your tank models had paid us a visit and was stuck through the front door and its supporting brick pillars. :shock:

I was in the service, as a Tank Crewman.
While stationed in Germany, what happened to your Fish Shop, wasn't an uncommon occurrence.

Often times, people for the towns we were traveling through.
Would offer us food or drink to crash into their building, or run through their crop fields.
Once the damage was done. They would take pictures and send the photos to the Army Base, for compensation.
The US Government would cut them a cheque, after the damage was appraised.
