He started to do so, once, but the 1/2 scale Mummy was taking up too much space.

Hope the Maus doesn't appear in any Land Ironclad games...

Thanks Hammers :) 
The problem is that I use the League as an opportunity to get some models done; and then I end up adding more which are completely scratch-built... counterproductive! At least I discovered that acrylics can coat washing machine wheels really well....

The StugMaus III in Land Ironclads, hmmm in 1/76 scale it's a bit over-proportioned for LI... and it'd need a repaint too. So no worries :) The buttons still click, but I haven't decided whether that's useful....  ::)
The Band Aid Mummy - no, it wasn't a space problem, Moriarty, it's just that I couldn't get used band aids fast enough, and I'm still doing the left big toe.

Very enjoyable entries but the clean paintjob on the household items made it the winner for me 8)

I'm not really into WWII and I just love the household vehicles, so voted for them. The tank is just awesome. What is it called? The Mause?

I guess it's the StugMaus III, the top right corner shows the names :)

.... the household items ....
THAT's what I should have called them!
By the way, it's StugMaus III because it's a 3-button maus - er - mouse.... I challenge anyone to get lamer than that!  ;D It's got tracks underneath, by the way, they just can't be seen.
As regards the valve-nosed flier - I have to admit I cannot remember what the black hull component originally was.... except that it's not part of a model.  :(
Thanks guys.

Vanvlak, those Geheimwaffen are just brilliant, both from concept and creativity and from painting!

Vanvlak, that StugMaus III is brilliant! I had to go back and take a long second look at the photo to try to all identify the parts used. (I really like the 3-button mouse  and the 12V mobile charger "rocket")

Looks like a battery charger/adapter for in a car.
