    Hallo guys,

    Everyone likes small locomotives and for sure, many of us had these to play when we were kids.There some pics of some ones that were or are using by The Polish State Railroads.These have been made by the guy who took the distinction during The Polish model Expo 2006/2007.I don't remember the scale of the models but they have wheels movable and other things that make them very realistic.The guy usually makes paper models of armoured vechicles and tanks but sometimes he likes making something different.I could see his prized model of the Pt-47 locomotive,something fantastic.Perhaps I could upload its pics later.You can see his other paper models at the thread : http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/modeling/small-model-expo-my-city-8943.html

    Those are truly remarkable. I just wish there was something by them so
    you could get an idea of the size of the units. Amazing !!

    Here is a link to a Mk.VII U-Boat designed and built by a fella in Thailand aka 'kooklik'. U-Boat Type VII C 1/72 Scale - Page 14 - Zealot Hobby Forum This is about as good as it gets.
    I'm not sure if you have to register to view these images, but, it's free.

    Also while you are there do a search for 'josve'. Johnny's work is excellent, I especially liked his Build of the DrafModel 1/16th Pak40 so much I bought it.

    I wish I could read Polish....Hint, hint Wurger. :)
