    "All Quiet on the Eastern Front"--Panther tank rusts in peace
    This is so damn realistic....love your snow work.  Have you tried any of the snow products from Precision Ice and Snow?  I love their frozen, half melted wash....

      Thanks again, Robert. I sold this on eBay a while back. I haven't tried that company, but will look into them; thanks for the reference!

        You can find their products, along with some excellent tutorials, at The Scenic Factory (www.thescenicfactory.com)....great products there!  Check out his forest floor debris and pine trees....

    Karl:  Where did you get the children and dog figures?  Or did you make them from scratch?  They make this scene....

      They were from "Doug's Miniatures". This particular figure was modified to have the mouth open in a scream. His mouth was originally closed and grinning. As soon as I saw them in a catalog, the scene materialized in my mind. He has a great line of figures!

    1971 Mach 1 from the AMT Boss 351 kit
    Karl:  Nice, nice, very nice......One of these blew the doors off my 71 455 Olds 442.....I never forgot how that damn Mach I accelerated by me in 1st through 3rd....I started to catch him in 4th....but by then, the fat lady had sung....Ha!    Robert Pierson

    Trumpeter's 1/35 12.8 cm Waffentrager.
    I have this kit (in the box yet)....great to see how it could look....IF.....I only had your talents.....great work!  Hate to face this baby head on in an Allied tank....it would be ugly.

    "Checkered Past"
    Your rust work is the best I have seen....and this dio strikes a cord with me, as my very first car was a 63 Impala 327, 3 speed on the column...was gold exterior and interior.....it gave up the ghost on my first honeymoon, and was traded for an Olds 442 in my first year as a high school teacher.  Again....wonderful work!

      Cool, Robert! I found this in an old field next to a dirt 1/2 mile racetrack that I used to frequent as a kid with my Dad. The track was closed, and I can only assume that this was an old racer which competed there.

    German E100 "land battleship" prototype tank
    I have this kit....sitting on the shelf in its box with many others....love your weathering and paint work....one mean looking beast.  Was it a fairly straightforward build?

    Spooked!
    Incredible.....just incredible.  Truly a magnetic presentation....cannot stop looking at it.  One of the very best dioramas I have ever seen...

    German Brummbar (Grizzly Bear) --used to demolish buildings in Warsaw ghetto
    Love the tracks...she is ready for the deep snows of winter.  all of your armor builds are fantastic.  One would almost swear they are pics of actual tanks due to your weathering techniques.

    Alan Marder IID w/ scratchbuilt rear screen enclosure
    Hi Karl......great paint work, and teh screen is to die for....I do notice one thing that I also have had difficulty with on tracked vehicles...your rear bogies appear to "bow outward" ...maybe due to the track tension.  It could be just the angle of the camera here, but am I correct?  How does one correct or avoid this outward stretching.....unless it also happens on real tanks??  I welcome your thoughts....

      Robert, that's gotta be the camera angle, or how you're "seeing" it. There was nothing about building this kit that would have caused such a bowing, and the tracks are actually individual link, so no "tension" there to cause it.

      I was pretty happy with ow the screen turned out. Of course, and then Bronco released one--and I was relieved to see that I seem to have gotten it most right in its construction. I love it when that happens, lol.

    DML Hummel, late.
    Love your paint work on the tanker's uniform...bet your eyes were so after painting that guy.   I really like the subtle, blended camo work on your tanks....  Robert
