Work in progress is going ahead, slowly.

Every photo is a gem to look at. The worst part about the final result will be waiting for the next project.
Great work.

Dear Matt,
I have not real and detailed plans but only some graphic views (1/35) I get by a friend of mine.
I have also the Dragon 1/35 kit and a lot of photos and other documents found on web.


Here the last situation of my work

Thats horrible. Absolutelty aweful. Feel free to box it up and ship it to me so I can dispose of it for you. Obviously I'm kidding That is some amazing work. I didn't see anything about what scale it is, sooo what scale will it be once finished? Again, amazing work. Thanks for sharing. "Q"

Hi there

Is this all hand turned and scratchbuilt in brass and other metals. It looks like it will be able to go bang at the end of the build too! Is this for connection to a radio controlled gun tractor?

Is it to 1/6th?

Amazing to look at!

Some other steps, working on the shield.
Note that this is just approximately supported and not fixed in final position.

Exceptional work, simply incredible!
Are the shields made of one piece of metal?

Yes, it's a double shield of brass.
I want remember you that this model is in 1/16 scale and not 1/35, infact would be impossible for me made all mechanisms working in this scale.

And now the work is at this point:

Has anyone seen that Hitchcock movie "Rope"? Jimmy Stewart, a professor proposes that useless people should be killed off since they serve no purpose. I propose that we kill off freaks of nature in model building so they don't make us look like amateurs. Is anyone with me on this?
