There was a guy in the US who took a color picture of a Panzer MK II and expanded the file to life sized scale...and printed it a sheet at a time and attached the sheets to a piece of plywood. Voila....a 2D panzer. It looked good but only from one side and at a distance.

Too much free time!

Tell you what tho, do you think the owners of that hurricane would lend it to us?

Might need a bit of a paint job but... the results could look good!

Looks like the pilot had a hell of a job landing that plane. Just shows you how spunky these guys were.

Yes, don't buy it unless you want to put it in a tank (which is what they were designed for). VERY different from a/c type Merlins. Might be possible to convert but a great deal of effort required.

The photo you're now seeing, after 12 years since he posted up this topic, is the photo in his signature, and not the series of photos which were originally posted up in the topic. You can see that it's in his signature and not his topic bost by the black line dividing it from the text above.

He could well be standing next to a Spitfire in his signature picture, but we can't see the original pictures in the topic anymore to see him (and presumably 'ground crew' too, from the other comments from 12 years ago) with a Hurrican anymore, because after such a long time since being originally posted, I'm guessing that the original photos have been removed/lost from where they were being hosted online, and as such do not show any longer.
