    Remote - Telecommande

    Hi Bonjour Larry.

    Les goliaths sont de petits chars allemands (2°GM), filoguides electriquement, ils avaient 60 / 85 Kg de TNT, et etaient utilises pour faire sauter un char, un ouvrage, une defense ... Le fil electrique faisait 400m.

    Goliaths are tiny german tanks (WW2), remoted by electric wire. They have 60 / 85 Kg of TNT. They are used to destroy a tank, a blockhaus, a house... The electric wire was 400m long.

    Le boitier est la telecommande (Marche/Arret, Droite/Gauche, Explosion).

    The box is the remote (On/Off, Right/Left, Ignition).

    Bons souvenirs de France
    Best regards from France

    Okay, okay, so it doesn't fit MY definition of "tiny", it DOES qualify for this challenge...the S.S. Minnow...printed at 70% of origional. I have no paint so the mooring bit and mast have to wait...you can buy this model at bobdenver.com

    Thanx Ashrunner, I did put the address there, must not have been clear.

    Dreama Denver is issuing placards with the model that says it is part of the "Signature Collection". No more autographs...obviously...

    Matthew has some very fine models, in fact, many many more than he shows at his website. He has headed up Micromodels USA to continue modeling as Heighway intended, something I personally thank him for.

    I intend to build this one tiny...teeny, tiny that is. Maybe in a diorama...with palm trees and a hut...

    I think you did an awesome job with the SS Minnow, Phil!

    If it weren't for the Bic lighter and other objects in the pics, one would never know it was that small!

    Two thumbs up, little buddy! 8v)

    This is the FG XH-44 HillerCopter, printed at 50% of the regular size. Result is a bit too sloppy...but here goes:
