I alway continue when we meet and make new pics.
We start build it up in ca. 2011, and now we always take care of the backgrowing nature and sometimes ad some new stuff, like last year our smal habour, a new bridge and so on.

When the longer driving days are, we take out al houses and smal things. an overlook:

Very nice! I keep trying to convince the local guys here where I am to think outside the box & develop a field together to do battle on. All they care to do is parade around an obstacle course like a group of school kids would do. :haha:

Hey,

thanks for the comments 8)
The Tanks site is almost 1:16, some figures and vehicels are 1:18, also the Huey´s.

The construction site is more 1:14, specialy the vehicels, traktors and dosers.

We have on that ground also an 1:10-1:5 racing circuit, there we make on our "2 day´s Tank meeting" (always in the start of august) an tank race, normaly there are RC Car races:

:clap: Some wonderful models there; old and modern types. It's good to see a mix of armour from WW2, Vietnam, and even the British Mk IV from WW1 :thumbup: Fantastic trucks as well. :)

:D ...ah, yes. Had I not been looking with great interest at the bridge, I might have noticed that it was an IS-2 underneath, and not a 34/85 (the front of which similar, with only a passsing glance :{ )
The Pz IV crew make a perfect match for the tank. :thumbup: and the pics are posed really well! This is the shot, below, that reminds me of a genuine WW2 Pz IV pic I saw once. I like the setting a lot, as it's like a real moment frozen in time :thumbup: :wave:
