Pretty nice... I've had ideas of doing some 1/72 scale armor myself, since it's similarly small, cost effective, and pretty available. Granted I also want to expand my supply of aircraft eventually as well, because I have a love for all things military. Well done subjects, angel.

Nice work, I dabble in 1/35th armour as a break from ships from time to time.

Anyone else got non-ship stuff? Let's keep track here. We can't be slaves to one genre.

Well, I used to build helicopters too. In fact I still have a nice collection of them, though I have to say they are all naval helos, so I don´t arise Kenny´s rage. These are some of them:

Excellent work everyone, they are all top-notch builds! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: Prowannab, your helo dio is fantastic, the water is very well done. :thumbs_up_1:

I've built a couple Dragon 1/72 German armor kits, and I must say I really enjoyed them. I have another in the stash and I think many more are in the cards :cool_2: I also build 1/144 Airliners (I'm doing a series of four on commission right now). No pics yet, not much to show.

I'm concentrating on finishing up my ship models but here are a few other models that I built over the years when I'm going through my 'what to build' phases.

Wow the old Ford/Mercury Maverick/Comet, cool! That was my first car in high school. My dad bought it new off the lot for $1995.00 and gave it to me for a graduation present.

Here's a Verlinden Pirate I did a few years ago. Kinda nautical

Nice work guys!

I especially like the USCG rescue dio, and the Tiger in the wheat field!


Pachi, I suppose I can spare you my wrath... but just this once! :big_grin:

Thank you, oh mighty Kennygod. No less could be expected from your magnanimity, but nevertheless, this humble servant owes you his life forever. :big_grin:

Hi all,

As a curiosity, here you are one of my earliest models, made some 16 years ago, one of the Swordfish from HMS Ark Royal that made the last attack on Bismarck on 26th may 1941, destroying her rudder, and securing her destruction on the following morning.
The model itself is the old venerable Matchbox 1/72, and the construction mistakes in it are countless, so don´t be too hard, please -- I was only a beginner.
Very best regards,
Willie.
