hahah, I am so with you Leon! I once built a friend a 1/72 Centurian Mk5 RAR based on a pic of his tank from his time in Vietnam. After all the photo etch, tracks, tools, various odds and ends and some scratch building of the extra fuel tank and the beer coolers and stuff I could have bought Porche! Ok, maybe not that much spent, but seriously over the top!
