Goliath and Kettenrad

As a counterpoint to the 1/33, 1/25, scales etc. I thought of posting some of my bucket list models (1/76) They are displayed three per display case (which I purchased sometime ago before the prices went crazy and this size became "out of production". Any way I obtained a German service manual for both the Goliath and the Kettenkrad, that made things much clearer (the Goliath had an electric version, I built the gas engine one as it looked better in model form. The most challenging part was the two numerals (I print all or most of my decals) well the numbers turned out to be 0.7 mm..(0.275 inches) but it worked! I hope to be able to fill the 25 cases before the bucket gets kicked.

Wow! I admire your skill. Unfortunately, too small for me, though.
