    Today I met an old gentleman who has gold in his hands. He uses recycled palette wood to make WW2 aircraft and vehicle models.

    It too him several months to make this 617 Squadron Lancaster .It's all there !
    He has probably spent several years of his life to make the hundreds of objetcts he displays in his collection. a Tiger tank, a Dewoitine aircraft, you name it.

    Great craftsmanship. That has more detail than a lot of the model kits released 30 years ago.
