The ULTIMATE WW2 model train layout!

This is an amazing project, to re-create the Remagen bridge and all the railroad operations over that during 1944!

Still, he did what many WW2 modelers do, showing all the cool stuff that existed but never used that much. He’s got a Maus tank on a flatcar? How many of those does he think were made, not to mention only one flatcar was ever modified to haul one? None of the tanks left the test grounds.

Great model work, nonetheless...

That is impressive! And even more so, that he can break it down and transport it to shows.

Thinking of trying your hand with the TP water technique?

I fought on that bridge on one of the Call of Duty games. Excellent work.

The toilet paper method for simulating ocean water and waves is excellent! I've been looking for something like this for my Florida East Coast Key West Extension layout!
