Saw it at Sutton Coldfield last Sunday.....BRILLIANT!!!
The same guy did a 1/48th hurricane I using phtographs as a reference...so everything was in shades of grey, including the markings. Terrific stuff!!

Made my day!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Wow!  Nicely done!  That is truly a bit of creative thinking there combined with some real sharp implementation.
