Added some timbers to protect the tank car.  Made the Land Rover a short wheelbase version.

Time to get cracking!  Helo next.  Significant surgery required to blend the 1/72 Alouette and the 1/87 MBB 105 into the right shape and scale.  The 1/72 Alouette was just to large.

 

Cutting



Tail boom on.

That's great - nice one! :thumbsup:

I'd like to put some of mine into dioramas, but I'm barely finding time to build 'em at the moment.... :banghead:
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?

Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

HO scale is a "secret passion" with me--I have done dozens of custom vehicles

(Example-- http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,26694.0.html )

for my brother's erstwhile train layout (never built, but always thought-of), so I do have an appreciation for fine HO work.
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!
