A new period for the Captain…The Templar Knights

 This is something I've wanted to do even before I started work on the Civil War miniatures.  The Architects of War had these for sale, so I bought a box of cavalry for starters and I'm sure I'll be contacting them again. Not wanting to wait for the decals which are on order, these are run off of the computer and repainted. This is the only one  finished, here are some shots. Well theres 4 done now so heres the other three.

Anybody out there with this kind of luck????

Greetings everyone,

This is just a short story about being in the right place at the right time.
Discovered in Ohio.  1962 Ferrari GTO #3589, 1 of 36 GTO's built from 1962-1964.
All 36 were race cars, winning just about everywhere they raced. Number 3589 had an extensive
race history retiring in 1964. It was donated to Victoria Texas High School, given to the shop class for practice. It was finally sold in 1972 at auction for the high bid of $6,500. All 36 GTO's are accounted for. All of them have a value  each of 40-45 million dollars.  The last photo is what it looks like now.

A different kind of base

Greetings everyone,
 I have a ton of different size frames that aren't being used….trying to figure out how to display this plane with a sturdy base relatively cheap.  A frame is a perfect setting for a larger piece, its flat and the border is already there. I left the  glass in place and just glued a piece of brown craft paper to it. I'm sure this has been done before, but in the 3 years that I've been on here, I've never seen it done. A cheap way of displaying an item and it works.

Greetings to all and happy new year,
First project of the year was this door…one quarter of it turned into a small battle scene.
