Please use this thread for testing how posting pictures works for you, and any snafus you come across.
Also, to recommend any good new sites, a la georged's post a few days ago.

cabin fever, very nicely done.
Just to show I'm not all about the enemy, here's my version of Fury.

@bassbug: It's not my model of Oddball's Sherman tank. It's a photo from the internet. I'd like to get one, but it sells for $259 by King and Country models.
Besides, I need all the scratch I can muster to keep this OD project going.

cabin...
That is one beautiful Jeep. What year?
I'll make you a deal on the Sherman....you buy the kit (Tamiya please. It should be around $40) I'll build it, paint it and weather it. We just have to find a way to ship it back to you in one piece :)

I used to build and paint model WW2 warbirds. I made a B17 for one uncle that was shot down in a Fly Fortress. The good news was he survived. The bad news was if sat out the war in a German POW camp.
Made another bomber for my Canadian uncle that flew in a Lancaster during WW@.
And, then I made an attack transport ship for my Dad who was part of a Higgins boat crew in the Pacific during WW2.
At any rate, my jeep is a 1955 M38A1. The manufacture of this model jeep began near the end of the Korean War (1953).

Nope, Toronto, Canada.
The Lancaster is in the war plane heritage museum in Hamilton. I go there occasionally as my daughter lives there.
EDIT: She lives in Hamilton, not in the museum :lol:

Fine looking job. I really like the not over the top mud. Great job on the tires too.
