A while back, I built the Hobby Boss M4 Tractor. I found a picture in a magazine that showed an M4 towing a German 88 around the Bastonge area during the Battle of the Bulge between January 6 and 9, 1945. I decided to do a diorama of it.
The 88 I used is by Dragon. The base for the diorama is the bottom of the plastic aircraft display case by Tamiya. I covered the base with Apoxilite putty, topping it with Hudson & Allen snow.
This week’s Video is SR 71 Blackbird: “Video of us air force SR-71 high speed stealth aircraft The Lockheed SR-71 “Blackbird” was an advanced, long-range, Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft.
