Hi, fellows!!!

I send you two URLs in which you could find several pics of both 1/35
scale models. The first one is a DML´s Hummel made by my friend José F.
Erize:

And the second one are some shots of totally scratchbuild project made by
another good friend of mine, José J. Sánchez. I think José J. is going to
assist and participate this year at Folkestone international contest (14 &
15th Spetember):

I hope you´ll enjoy it!

Yes very good on the Hummel I really liked the chipped paint effect. Just the right amount of weathering very good.
On second one what is the scale of train is this 1/35 if it is I bet it is one big train.
Latter Leclerc and welcome aboard,kind of cliche their you think

Those are two quite impressive models. I like the weathering on the Hummel. I'd never seen a train like that, but the in progress model looks quite good!!! Please update us when it's done.
