I hope you do, too! (Although I wouldn't mind winning it also . . .)

And I hope you invite me over for some games! I'll bring the beer.

The plastic miniature heavy tanks are about the same footprint as the GHQ M1 Abrams model. However, the heavies are taller.

Man ainít that the truth? However, Iíd suggest it be 1/100 (which is only a bit smaller than HO). Then it could be used with 15mm minis!

In the meantime, for the modeler on a budget: Take a shoebox. Stick in six pencils, three on a side. Put two golfballs in front, with the golf tees glued onto the front side of the golfball. Now you need a tower. Go to the kitchen and . . . Okay, I'm stoppng now.

Hahahahahahaha!!!

Yeah, I echo Wolf90 in that these forums really need a "like" button. I'm reading this at 5 a.m. before I leave for work. I'm going to be chuckling about this all day . . .

I'd just have to be sure that the tower would be extremely well grounded as it would act as a great lightning rod (being the tallest thing around).

(I'd have to be sure to invite Evil Stevie up to autograph it somewhere . . .)

Hmmm. Maybe with built in loudspeakers for sound effects . . .

OMG, My old 1/35th scale MK Vs would be so jealous...
