Positively stunning work. He's as good with the architectural models as he is with the car models. Truly amazing.

Totally built from my personal plan. ZG-62 engine. All panels are present and fully riveted. Central bomb and dive brakes are functional like original. It flies really well.

I certainly haven't seen them all, but this RC is probably the most scale one I've seen. Just fantastic detail. He would be seriously bummed out if he ever crashed this thing.

He even used the epic Out of Africa theme with the soaring violins. I can't believe he put that jungle music in at the end. I had to sit through that shit to watch this thing land.

Is that Brad Pitt flying that plane at 2:28?

Here's another one I like:


This Sukhoi doesn't have the level of detail that Stuka had, but then again it can't or it would probably fall apart at this performance level. I think this is a sweet plane. I wish just he chose a different paint scheme. With all of the sweet Su-27 schemes out there, I'm not sure why he chose this one.

Cool, but needs proper a Stuka air siren.



And Wagner. Here's some vintage newsreel "Ride of the Valkyries" and Luftwaffe action during the invasion of Crete:

"....a Ferrari which we could have in the dining room".

I love everything going on here.

When I am feeling uninspired I take another look at Pierre Scerri and his 312 PB...

Unfucking believable.

A B-29 no less. Too bad it couldn't run with 4-blade props-it would be perfect.

Wonderful but a let down. There were no little bombs dropped.

Look how scale that weapon is. The sight knobs and bolt are dinky small. What a thing of beauty.

That is nice.

I was lusting for one of those full size laptop bags until I saw it in person. It's just ridiculous for a work brief case, and no zippers. Cool in concept, lame in execution.

I have the Saddleback thin briefcase for daily use. I generally like it, but there are a few design flaws. For example, the handle is flat and uncomfortable if you're carrying it across an airport. But its kind of cool having a single buckle and nothing else- simple and classic.

Those little jeans would look great folded next to my dream mini display tent.

That reminds me. JSQ did you hear that sweet chilled-out cover of Suburbs by Mr. Little Jeans?

I hadn't.
Can't say I cared for the video, but I like the track.

Gab scored this for me today at a tiny local English dry goods shop.

I guess the husband of one of their regular customers died recently and the widow asked the shop to sell her husband's toy car collection.

This was the only Land Rover in the group of about about 30 cars. I will go back and see what else is there.



I don't think it has ever been out of the original box.




Per the notes kept by the husband, it was purchased new in 1970.


Gab paid a bit more than the original retail price.
