In from the cold

Post by Jeffrey Goff » Wed Dec 10, 2008 7:18 pm

Its out from the garden shed and on display in the warm, now I can take full length pictures, as there was not enough room to stand back in the shed, I have put a 1/6th figure on the brake seat just to show the scale and how big the 88 is I will blend the paintwork in and finish the accessories before Christmas

Hi Jeff

That really does put it into scale. Not just the figure but in your room. That 88 is huge! :shock:

What a great piece and what a pair! SdKfz 7 and the 88 Looking forward to the 222.

I knew that coffee table would come in useful for something, the 88 looks really good and I like the weathered look. Having finished it now what will you do over the Christmas break. You've got to have something to get you away from the crap christmas TV, or even worse the sales!!!

Now thats a coffee table prize! Someone would have my head if had it in the living room though! Great job on the gun, superbly realistic!
