    I thought I would start a thread showing the 1/72 vehicles I build.
    Here is the Ford 3-Ton I just finished. The fit is up to Roman's usual excellent standards. At just 44mm, this little jem was a challenge. Tweezers were a must. Thanks again Roman for another great tank.

    Excellent work

    Toddlea:
    You are doing one heck of a job with those little gems. I've built 5 or so of his tanks and am looking forward to doing more after I finish my current project. Please post more pictures as you build them. John

    Another very nice little tank. What type of paper are you printing these on? I was wondering if the 'relief' parts (like the wheels and hatches) are regular paper and the structure is card?

    I use 90lb cover cardstock on all parts. I might print very small parts on 20lb bond if they have to be rolled. Thanks for the interest.

    Here is the T-60. This turned out to be more of a challenge. Lots of tiny, fiddly parts that have to be alligned just right.

    More Jems

    Here are few builds from my friend Dan. His builds inspired me to start building these great kits. Attached is a Su-85(Winter Scheme), T-62 and a Sturmtiger.

    Great Job on these tanks!:thumb:
    This is one of my favorite genre's and I too have built more of the 1/72 tanks than anything else.
    They are a lot of fun!

    Keep up the great work and keep them pics coming!
    Oh yeah, and thanks for sharing!:cool:

    Stridsvagn m/21

    Here's another one. I picked the Swedish version. Always been a fan of camo. Fit was perfect as usual.
