I really like the all series, and videos, you've done in the various WW2 theaters. I teach history and my students love your MOCs. In fact, I have a student right now who's working on a WW2 scene and he thought this was great. We're both looking forward to Part 2!
Hey, Cam! 2nd try at leaving you a comment!!! You have sure been busy designing LEGO war scenes ~ they are fantastic creations! I just know that one day you will be playing all day at your high-powered job at LEGO, raking in the big bucks. You are THE BOMB! (Hehe, get it?)
