Surely a slightly smaller image-size would have sufficed - as it is the images are so large they're very difficult to view (they're several times wider than my screen resolution).

Nice work! Really nice work.

I've been trying to get permission to post a f(r)iend's photos of her 1:6 scale, hand built PZ Vi tank. I haven't seen the completed model in person, only photos, but have handled some of the individually investment case track shoes.
