    Old Harrison Ford - same guy, different hero.
    As to the crate I went the hard way. Drew the letters and eagle, used tracing paper and then painted it on the wood.
    Well worth the effort - I would think it nerve wracking to put a torch to it for the finishing touch though!

    Taking a look at Panzer 3 threat "My Summer Project" I remembered I had done something a bit close to it. It's a section of the crate as seen on the movie Raiders of the Lost Ark at the scene when the Ark is on board the ship after the germans had taken it.
    Thats a fantastic job, looks great.
    Cheers.

    There were a lot of rubber weapons as well, especially the MG34s, also on the set of Goldeneye a lot of the AKs were plastic, only the ones allocated for firing were blank firers, ones that had to be dropped were fake

    Yeap - but that's how it has to be. Same thing when you finish a model and then weather it or put mud and dust all over. It's the final job that counts even if you had a hard time modeling / building it

    Quite.
    I hope you have a prominent place (and room enough) to display it.
    Good thing you didnt choose to build the sub in scale 1/1.
    BTW I remember watching the movie and thinking, that it was stupid to choose a fantasy plane for the scene with Harrison Ford fighting the giant soldier on top of a plane. But then I saw some of the prototype/planned designs on the Luft46 site and changed my mind.
    Of course an anachronistic plane and one which never flew, but not as far off, as I thought.
    (The use of P38 pistols were of course also anachronistic)

    Correct. Most people thing that plane really existed others thing it's just an invention from some writer. Actually it's a bit a combination of both (however the plane from the movie never existed, but as you said it's based on real plane projects). As all movies (and Spielberg unfortunately is no exception) Raiders has a number of mistakes but a hell of a movie and one of my all time favourites.
