That tank is awesome dude, wow! It looks heavy enough to make the asphalt crumble beneath it. That Osprey/Chinook type aircraft better be up the the job.
So i came online to answer everyone whos been kind enough to leave a comment, and CA is falling to pieces. I have a heavy heart. This sb is like a diary of the last 2 years, and the effect of CA, hanging ot with you guys has been huge and profound. Love you all.

And I'm with you on the heavy heart thing. Feels like I just got comfy and started putting down some roots and this happens...
I don't know what will happen but I hope to fuck this place doesn't implode.
"Lightship man youve been nothing but a positive cool influence for years man, really really means a lot."
Saw this and thought it felt like a goodbye!? not leaving are you?
because I am now haunting/ following your Facebook page as well no escape old chap! (same avatar to keep it simple!)
As for support thats one on the major cool things about this forum we all seem to support one another which can only be good. Following your work has been an absoloute joy too it makes me smile as I look through it and most of the time go wow! Cool! as well!
Even though I am miles away and about a thousand years older than you we share similar likes and interests, so if its ok with you I shall continue my support and encouragement for as long as you want or until my liver explodes for all the mis-treatment I give it
all the very best matey and may the force be with you!
P.S. I also like the idea that I can make you laugh out loud too, that really cheers me as I am a propper idiot!! just ask my Kids.
P.P.S. check out the astom martin add I posted in my SB its sublime and brilliant!

Aw Shit I'm not having that! I aint losing another mate, end of story!
you can find me on facebook under Graham Nightingale, or E mail me, stay in touch matey I like what you do and the way you do it.
Its pretty cool to think of you as a mate even though as I said I am about a thousand years older than you and at the arse end of the country.
This community means a lot and I will be uncontrollably pissed off if it fragments because of things that are fundamentaly none of our business.
stay well mate and stay in touch.
love the tank, but the stuff in the last post is awesome!!!
I see that you are pretty upset, I am very sorry to hear that, I don't really understand what's going on: you won't be posting on these forums or the entire site will be nuked?
What is going on, I don't understand anything?
Hey man, looks like things might be ok so...
Heres some more racer toy ideas. still really rough, but my eyes are closing so i ran some off for steve (waipunga) to comment on. youre welcome to too mates. still to do: AG unit, texdtures, details, cockpit, decals, cables, badges, tune the proportions, show in flight, all sorts. but a start to work with.. see what you think
These racers look really fun. They're supposed to roll or to hover like a WIG-craft?
As I understand, for complicated story reasons the front petrol V8 turns a dynamo which powers an limited antigravity unit to allow it to hover, and the back engine powers the prop fans..
its a rich guys hunter racer, (and i think a rather fun metal toy..)
some quick changes to feedback, moved things, changed stuff, put a place holder rad grill in the front. I cant model well so i tend to bodge it all in and paint th rest!
i quite like how the supercharger belts look like Rex from Toy Story's eyes! kind of goofy, till you see the twin gatling canons.

Hey, I like you SB, very unique ideas. I can see you are very busy man. You have a lot going on in your SB. no critics from me, all of your work are great man. keep it up and be an inspiration to all the artists out there.

I'm more partial to revolver cannons myself as they have no warm up time, but you cannot get more visually imposing than a good old gatling...

Al you are an evil bastard! Now I am going to have to write a story in the Fury of Aces series with a squadron of these behemoth like armored vehicles and self propelled artillery! Damn but they are really really well done.
Yeah, those racers are wicked cool thanks man. Already have a bunch of people yelling loudly at me to get them kitted! In the 1/20 scale they would be a reasonable table top size.
We are remembered only by what we leave behind.
With a tuning fork this size I gotta see the piano mate!!
Its either a giants tuning fork or a Sonic Tank from the classic "Dune 2000" computer game, ah the nostalgia sweeps over me !
hee hee I love all of it matey, but the tank is a little on the thin side it feels like a hit from the side would knock him over, just a feeling is all.
By the way I did you some R.O.U. pics on my SB check em out and then tell me what you saw them as, it could be interesting to see what you got from the books.
all the best to you matey, stay well and keep on posting.
been a while. hows it going ah?
some things, old and new

Love those airplane designs! Thanks for the update!
