    Oh, come on Russell, you're not trying to tell me that tank is made from paper......... it's a superb model, whatever it's made from. Got any more info about it ?

    Cheers

    WOW !!! That's a build thread worth reading (or even just looking at the pics if, like me, you can't read German !!)

    Good grief! That's an impressive build. The guy's attention to detail is incredible and his paintwork outstanding. He also seems to have just about every modeling tool known to man.

  6. There is only one word to describe what I have just seen. Actually there isn't a word to describe what I have just seen. I think I will go back to painting. How much time does he have invested in this amazing piece of work? I have truly never seen anything like it. My work looks like cartoons next to his

    This build is just otherworldly, that's the only word I can think of. Even his close-up shots don't look like a model, much less a card model. It is truly humbling to look at this.

    Yeah, If his work is Premier league, I'm still kicking around with the primary school kids in the playground........

    Let us Lean From this, Grasshoppers......

    This is proof of what patience plus discipline added to practised basic modeling skills can do for you.

    GREAT WORK, Josef!!

    Would love to see Josef tackle a T-34 and Tiger someday. . .

    Great tools plus great technique equals one superb model.

    Thank you, very much for your attention to my work. The time I have spent to build the tank was approx. 1000 hours. My next model is the german Schwimmwagen (amphibious vehicle) of WWII. You find the building report in the forum.

    Friendly greetings
    Josef
