Whifs at SMC (pic heavy)

Today I went to the Scale Model Challenge at Veldhoven.

Some whifs there:

























































I'll try to post the rest of the pics on my site tomorrow.

Wow!  Those 3 Me 262 builds are amazing.
And the rest are great also.
Thanks for the share.

I'm not sure if this is a whiff though.  Isn't is a RW mine/IED clearing vehicle?

Pretty sure you're on the money there, Fred, but it certainly looks whiffy! ;)

Of course it could be a subtle whiff.  Changed No. plates?
But it does look odd and science fictiony.

Nah, that square box behind the cab window should have six bolts holding it and there's only four, so it must be a Whiff..........   ;D ;)

Actually the whiff is the figure.
He's wearing ladies underwear.

Oops. Looked whiffy to me.
But then I'm not much into modern land based equipment.

It was included in a "new kits just in" e-mail from an on line hobby shop that I got a while ago which is why it rang a bell.
It's a good build.  Well weathered without going over the top.

I have just posted all my other pics on my site.
The show had a very big contest turn out.
There were hundreds of figures and military, only a few aircraft.

All pics on my site:  http://www.airwar1946.nl/index.htm

Thanks for that, Tom!

A lot of great stuff &, as an armour builder, I loved how much there was of it! Some great post-apocalyptic dio's, some awesome figures, fantastic armour dio's, excellent aircraft & some brilliant weathered/rusted vehicles!
