Thanks very much Spanjaard and Dominik. 👍
Fantastic diorama scene Gorby 👍
Looking great, there's a lot I like and one thing that I don't like. I love the loo with Charlie Chaplin as the Dictator but look at #20, the propeller and the canopy frame is sort of floating in the air over the grass.
It's a well know fact that due to war time shortages the Luftwaffe ran low on gravity as well as fuel. round the side by the woodshed was considered to be the ideal place to borrow some gravity for places where it was more in need - like holding down sheep so that they didn't drift away as small clouds.
Really, honest. 😉
Nice work Gorby. I like this one a lot!
Beautiful job gorby!!
I agree with everyone above: something very special here! And: it looks beautiful!
Very Nice Gorby!
WOW! What a lot of lovely comments. Thank you all for taking the time to comment. 🙂

That dio; what a corking idea. I doff my cap to you, Gorby
Great modelling and dio 👍
Great work. Very nice scene. Also that hangar is brilliant. Scratchbuilt?
Very nicely done.
Thanks all for your comments. 🙂
Robert: Yes the hangar and dio is entirely scratch built. The album for it is here:

Very cool, mister.....heavy armor indeed!
All I every see on this site modern 20th century and modern armour, so it's nice to see some well done prehistoric armour 👍
Thanks for the nice comments mates. 👍
The person who was bugging me to try 1/35 armour seemed to think I was somehow avoiding the issue. You just can't please some people. 😄
I too think there are too few dino kits available, I now made about 3 and it seems that's about half there exist. Nice steggy, Gorby, be sure to feed it well.
More dino kits would be very welcome.

Another bloody hilarious installment from the Gorby stable, sobering circumstances notwithstanding. Nigel is no doubt clapping from his little corner of the Great Stash in the Sky 👍
Thanks very much Alec, I'm pleased you enjoyed it. 🙂
can not say it better than Alec did already. 🙂
Thanks very much Spanjaard! 🙂
Great tribute to your mate!
Thank you Jan. 👍
Sooo cool! Fantastic work, Gorby!
Love it. I am watching for inspiration which you always provide plenty of, gorby
Thanks very much Robert and Ben. I'm glad you like the 'thing'. 👍
Great build. Loved dr.Who back in the days.👍

Outrageously brilliant! 👍
@gorby: it´s always a good thing to create models/ topics away from the mainstream, i just have to finish some of my old projects, then I will certainly do something similar! 😁
#watching for input 😉
This is just crazy and cool! 👍
Thanks everyone for your comments. 🙂
Simon: I would certainly recommend it, I very much enjoyed this project.

Thanks Rui, very nice of you to comment. 👍
Cool, looks like a weathered Matchbox truck of my childhood 😉
I loved those old Matchbox models. I always was always careful with mine, so they were in pretty good condition when I handed them on to my (much younger) cousins. They destroyed every one of them within weeks. 🙁
Very cool build mate, well done indeed 👍
Thanks Alec. I'm glad you like it. 🙂

LOL I enjoyed that. Thank-you for the creative writing and post.
Thanks mates I'm glad you where amused. 🙂
I think you have something new here: a modeling comix!
😄 😄 😄
I was concerned that my dialogue was lynched. 😄
Fortunately most of you know I'm harmless. 😉
Als the spitfire 😄
Hi Joshua, I always use Tamiya acrylic and I think the paints I used for the Caunter scheme are XF-14, XF-22 and XF-57 - not exact, but close enough for me. There is a link to the build report in the main description if you are interested.
Tamiya decals have the reputation of being a bit on the thick side, and the ones in this kit are very thick. Having said that, I'm useless with decals. Other people don't seem to have had a problem.
I just sprayed on the red/white rectangles rather than use those decals.
Very well done!👍
Thanks very much Neuling! 🙂

French Armoured Roller Char ..w House Club YH35027, 1:35)
😄 😄 😄
I've just seen it as well and thought 'Wow... I like that'. You know me so well. 🙂
I've just off to Google it.
it will be too easy for you. compared with your scratchbuild projects 😉
The trouble is there are too many things I want to build and too little time. Since Lukasz pointed this out I've seen half a dozen other weird things I also want to build. If the world produced less bizarre things, I might stand a chance. 😉
make a list. order by bizarreness, start for the one on top 😉
Every month I'd have to rewrite the list. There's a LOT of weird stuff out there. 😄

Great piece of carpentry Sir, hats off!😉 Surprised to see your build being so neat and clean 😛
A very beautiful present for your step daughter! She shure deserved it! Hopefully she also got a very early vaccination!
Great build 👍
Beautiful. Both the modelling and the sentiment.
Thanks very much for your nice comment mates, I'm glad you like it. 🙂 👍
She has seen the photos and is very pleased with it - unlike many younger women she things my models are "coooool". I've told her boyfriend that it's only held on with magnets so that he can fly it around the flat - which no doubt he probably will. 😄
that is a beautiful present, i love it. well deserved, no doubt. medical personnel all around the globe deserved always our praises. And now a lot more than ever.
i need to remember your "Wharevaaaa" technique, it will be applicable plenty of times 🙂 i love your introduction to this build, by the way.
I completely agree Spanjaard - The medical personnel in every country have been the real hero of the hour, whist many politicians should be hanging their heads in shame.
Thanks very much mate. 🙂 👍
Well Mate, your presentation made me LOLLLL, just as usual 😄. Great & beautiful Idea and better yet execution 👍. Congratulations.
P.S. Don't forget to tell us RAF reply 😄😉
Gorby, I would not have you pegged for a sentimental sort. And a model in one true scale to boot! Jolly good show 👍
Your daughter has my admiration for doing what she does.
😄 😄 😄
Thanks very much Rui and Alec! 🙂
Where have I been ? That's a great idea. I love the project name - at least it wasn't 'Up the nose' or 'down the throat' !!
Thanks very much Nigel, I'm glad you like it. 👍
