    Ok, thats it! No more of this baby stuff I'm moving up to the big time soon as I find the big bucks that go with an obcession of that magnitude! THAT DOES NOT LOOK CHEAP. I can see Ricks point about quitting though. That much unrequited jealosy is the basis of a major and lasting cheese off...,

    Fantastic. Can I be SUPER SUPER picky? Everyone has the same dead-pan facial expression. Other than that, its a fantastic set of pictures.

    That thing is awesome!
    Think I will stick with the card models though. Where do you keep something like that anyways? My wife would kill me..........:grin:

    Who says that model building is not an art form?
    That's incredible!

    MODELS--WHAT!! Those can't be models. They have to be real.

    I better go back and look again. I think he used real trains and put

    manikins on them. Good lord, that has to be the most amazing diorama ever

    built. The guy must have started when he was 12 years old and made a

    career out of it. Holiwood couldn't match that in a hundred years.

    Now I am going to have burn all my stuff and find a new hobby. From now

    on my stuff will just be junk. :cry:

    Humongus loco

    I had to double check. That's 1:6 scale (2"=1'). A WWII fighter model with a 6' wingspan? I realized that the thing was huge when I decided that the figures were dressed in fabric clothing! Are the figures GI Fritzes? (the faces aren't GI Joes, but the figures are the same size - 1' tall).

    When I was modeling in plastic, I did 1:72 scale because 1:48 was to large.

    :cry: :cry: :cry:

    ehmm... ehmm.. let me recompose myself after a shock crisis.
    Men, look at the size of that stuff: i don't even think it can be called scale model... that must be probably a (working) replica for short people :cry:

    ABSOLUTELY, It Stays!!

    This definitely belongs in Dio Corner, unless Rick wants to punt it!

    Ohhh how I miss my GI Joes. Talk about a wonderful adult historical world. The photos are absolutely excellent. I thought I was looking at re-enactment photos at first. This could push cardmodeling to a whole new level.
