    Wow. That thing is massive, I wonder where he keeps it.



    Oh wait, this is the guy I saw earlier, he has all kinds of WWII dioramas in 1/6th scale. While they are cool, I wonder how this man affords to live with his collection.

    Nice, but I'm more interested in his 1/1 Scale SdKfz 250 in AfrikaKorps markings in the background

    For all the time he invested building that thing, it still has a pretty crappy paint job, all grey with no shading whatsoever. What's the point of building a model like that if you cannot paint it well?

    That is absolutely amazing levels of crafstmanship, and engineering.

    Crappy paint job? It's gray primer for chrissakes and not finished as CR said. You got a lot of balls criticizing a project that well executed.

    That model was bloody amazing, Thanks for sharing this Connaught Ranger.
    Is this the same fella who did the large German armoured column a few years back? Had a whole town filled with tanks, landsers, trucks, etc.

    I think this must be the same guy.
