What a blast! All amazing models!

We have a guy in my HMGS club that actually games with those gaming miniatures out here too. I think Mike's miniatures look far better though.

Nice post! Thanks for keeping us all in virtual attendance!

Tell Don that Panzer IV really looks interesting. The thing that caught my eye was the multiple V belts on the engine. :blink:

Thanks for the update Chris!

I like this Model!! Ron usually re-hab's built classic models. He tells me it was nice to make a kit for the first time it was built, even if He "Twisted" his Funfdecker a little bit!

Don used TLAR Model 1/35 WWII Wehrmacht stowage accessories near the net. Unopened bottles and baskets make me think this Moment in History occurred just before Mittagessen (lunchtime for those of you who don't "kenne"!)
