Some totally AWESOME models there.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I've only got about 1/3 of the way through, but my fave has to be the Don Garlit's SW27 'Sidewinder' dragster model. I've never seen that car modelled before and it's something else!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Thanks for sharing the pics Alan. Too bad we couldn't make it to Phoenix.

The collection of all Essexes was already impressive, but then there was the 700-strong AFV collection complete with the ludicrous-sized Dora railway gun :o

The FSA Saratoga actually reminds me of the real-world training carriers operated in the Great Lakes area during WW2.

Did a PzIV with the fold-out rocket turret actually exist, or is it a particularly tasty tank whiff?

I like the Chevy ragtop with the pig in it, the fishing boat and the Tom Daniel collection.

Thanks again Dork.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Well I had to google, and... it's actually a real, one-off prototype, Raketenwerfer auf Fahrgestelle Pz.Kpfw. IV - up-armoured Ausf. C chassis with four 28cm Wurfkörper rockets in the turret. Apparently cyber-hobby.com even has a kit for this.
