Should be titled "Look UP!"

That's how the tank in the film "The beast" was done in.

Wow.

There are some WHIF's starting on this page and the next one.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Two awesome dioramas found on scalemodels.ru:

1/35 - Old World Blues (at least that's what Google translates it to) - More pics here: LINK



-----------------------------

1/35 - The enemy is gone! (translation again courtesy of Google) - More pics here: LINK

I don't know. It's just an abandoned greenhouse, but... wow. Totally floored.







Looks like a set piece from the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games.

Old World Blues is one of Fallout: New Vegas' expansion packs so its highly likely that you're correct Logan.
