Jack was a blast all weekend...Joe should be VERY proud. I took a few shots of them with their tanks in town.






We have had some great young kids battle there....Montgomery, Quinn, Andrew, Colin, Ryan...the list goes on. All were very good tankers.

Sorry for the delay but I have had a busy week unpacking from Danville, finishing ETO orders and packing for Europe. Here are some pix:

First the group mug shot....ok now turn to the right.

and a few more....

Brett the photo bomber.... We had four ladies battling. Erin & Krista were color coordinated.


And a few more (wifi has been bad due to the hurricane)...

Alright. Just didn't want to plan something and then find out I should have done it earlier, kinda busy right now so it might be hard to fit something in until later

Wow, well... if you can't be there STARING AT PICTURES is second best!

Whoa, what a nice collection too! Especially #43... either it's an up-armored Kubel or a major conversion to look like a Horsch vehicle. Then all the nice T34's, Panthers and all those super sweet Shermans!

I almost cried I wanted to be there SO BAD!! Really nice work EVERYONE!!! Those 38(t) have me in the shopping mood... don't care if my wife diss-owns me, I gotta have one now after seeing these! (maybe 2)


BTW... who owns that Kubelwagen? Does he have any build threads on it? So very nicely done as I wouldn't mind picking their brain on what they used!


Oh... and I almost forgot, GREAT PICTURES Chung-Leong! I do appreciate them.

Thanks for the kind words Jeff.

According to the owner, it was a Tamiya Kubel on a Losi crawler chassis and it has really good articulation. He sold it, I don't know who has it right now but it worked a treat. He builds great looking models. He also built 38t number 1003. You might like to know that it is still available for sale - Mike made me a very good offer that I found very hard to resist.

Well, I have talked myself out of this one... for now. There's more to it than at first glance and the vehicle alone is around 150 bucks! I bet there's about 50 hours into this on the styrene work alone.

That's dedication and well done Mike!
