I have not posted much in the way of any woodworking/woodturning as I have been occupied with this little build. I do not keep a record of how long it takes but all I do know is that there are a load of bits that required making some on the small size.
The finished model measures 19 1/2" long 7 1/2" wide and 7" tall.
Made from loads of different wood out of the scrap box the most expensive outlay was the two cans of finish and not counting time.

Awesome, I'd hate to see an anti-tank round hit that beauty.

Fantastic build! I'm don't think I have even a tiny bit of patience to build something like that...

Thank you Doc and Bill.

I make things like this as I know they will take a little time to make and also keep my hand in using hand tools. My other passion is wood turning and without model/toy making I would end up with so much turned stuff that I would not know what to do with it.
