    Outstanding!

    I enjoyed visiting your webpage too! You have many very nicely done minitures shown there, awesome at any scale but even more so when you consider how small those models actually are.

    I didn't see any ships on the webpage except for in the top banner...do you feature any ship models in your micro model collection?

    I am looking forward to seeing your progress on this build.

    Cheers!
    Jim

    The photo of ship for in the banner made my friend MacGregor which has allowed me take advantage this picture for making baner:

    In future I plan process several else interesting ships (for instance: PBR patrol boat).
    kampfflieger: thank You. I be glad, that my model pleases You. I am beginner in project design of models.

    Best regards.

    Those wheels are usually called the "roadwheels". The toothed drive wheel is called the "drive sprocket" the wheel at the opposite end of the track to the drive sprocket is the "idler wheel".

    Interesting subject - the last Soviet light tank. Great looking model - looks as if you could rescale it to 1/50 and it would still look good.

    I think there's only one left - at Kubinka - http://www.jagdtiger.de/SovietVeh/T-80-01.htm

    Regards,

    Charlie

    Hello!
    paper warrior: thank you very much for your nice words. I`ll hope that next my models will be please you too.
    charliec: thank you for Your help. Now, I`ll be remember this name of wheels.
    My project in Rhino is in scale 1:25, and I rescaled it in Corel to 1:100 (25%). Rescale from 1:25 to 1:50 isn`t problem. I`ll think about Your idea.
    This webside which you`ve given me is very interesting. Photos are already in my documentation about T-80. :)

    Best regards.

    Cześć Krzychu

    Impresive work :) and that scale... 1:100. It's a big challenge in armored vehicle modeling.

    cheers

    it looks really nice.... sometimes i wonder if 1/100 wouldn't be a mathematically better base scale for the small stuff. almost "metric"?
    we'd love to see more.

    Hello! :)
    origami.pl: thank you very much for nice words. Your aircrafts models are for me inspiration to design my litte model. Your Hawker Fury in 1:72 is impressive! I`d like in future so design as you.
    nebeltex: thank you for nice words too. Small models aren`t so difficult as most people thinks. They are a little bit labor-consuming.

    Ok, next part of my report.
    Today return rollers (thanks charliec! :) )
