Wow, wonderful workmanship there Vinnie. A true test of your abilities. Consistant looking work.. Quite the motorpool you have going. You have made a mockery of the great expression: "Those who can DO, those who can't Teach." YOU most certainly DO. Kglack cheers mate

Ya think that Vinnie loves Hanomags? You have a magnificent collection there. I've got 3 (including the original Tamiya version from the 70"S)

These are awesome Vinnie. I particularly love the schwimmwagon - are they the Tamiya figures? I have never used any of their figurines, but if these are them, im definitely getting me some. A.

ONLY .... 13 HALFTRACKs BUILT!!!!!! If anybody ever need proof that you are a prolific builder, its all here on one page! 40 models in 3 years ... thats even more than 1 every month. Very impressive collection of armor Vinnie. And all are of a very high standard to boot! Can you add newer models to this display later or do you need to build another 20+ to get a new display? :-)

thats goin to be a hard act to follow there vinnie, absolutly beautiful collection i have to ask is there any builds you have that didnt make the cut in your eyes and you left out, reason i ask is i have some builds i really like and others which were ok but not brilliant.

Hi Vinnie, Great collection of kits there. Only observation I would make is on the small dio with the American truck. All the rubble seems to be inside the house? Would have thought there would be more scatter around the outside. As the bonet's open, a GI with a spanner, scratching his head might fit in well? Thanks for sharing, I'm particularly fond of some of those kits and might get around to a few some day. Cheers Al

Alan, the rubble is inside the house to indicate that there has been some clearing been done, as with the surviving door being leant against the structure. A GI with a spanner, scratching his head leaning over the engine? Far too cliched. Thanks for the comments guys. Vinnie

Yep, that's the impression that I get... Jolly good show old bean! Your dioramas show a simple layout can be effective, and they are beautifully painted and weathered... The halftracks lose me as they all look the same and I couldn't tell one variant from another (Are they all different?) but that's par for the course if you model in a more Olive Drab shade... The real big one (Think it's a Royal tiger?) on the muddy road is well done, the wrecked fence is a good one! The road looks a little too plain in tone, but may be the pic angle? Good lead-off for the rest of us...

Hi Vinnie, Obviously they have just taken over this position from the Brigade of Guards then. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) Cheers Al Ps: If it moves - 'Salute it' . If it stands still - 'paint it'.
