Re: Dragon has the 1/6 scale Aerosan on sale.

There is a cool video on Ytube showing an RC'd version of this model. You can probably find it by searching for RC Aerosan.

Re: Defending the Homeland, at Berlin gates!

Wow amazing set up. Really conveys a sense of desperation. The MG gunner esp has a look of "oh $#$%% here they come" on his face. Excellent work.

Re: Japanese army type 94 super light armored vehicle

Those tankettes are fantastic. The camo is just perfect. These must have deathtraps in real life. But stunning models - really well done. Thanks for sharing.

Re: The Soviet army SU76 M self-propelled artillery

I agree -with a different background that would be mistaken for real vehicle. That is superb. Inside detail is very convincing. The armor texture on drivers hatch is especially well done.
