  1. Very nice capture, however here it is spring :)

  2. Charles van Dijk you live south of the equator?

  3. Turtle_burger01 Yes Perth West Australia.

  4. Charles van Dijk PSHHH Australia dosnt exist LOL. did you hear those flat earthers

  5. Turtle_burger01 I understand lunatic asylums don't exist either ;) By the way the German tank on your page next to the US Tiger tank toy is a captured Russian T 34. The 2 exhaust tubes give it away. The German crosses are also more prominent as usual for obvious reasons.

  6. Thanks you, Charles van Dijk. We still have a few more weeks of summer here, then into the fall. Though, where I live in the Southern US, I'll be wearing shorts well into the late fall.

  7. Thanks a lot, ᙅYᙖᙓᖇ ᗪOᙅ™!

  8. Tom Gatermann Yes I was in San Diego in April and it is a very similar climate of where I live.

  9. Fantastic! Very interesting in great colors!
