I have posted on my blog some photos of the newest project from Turtle models. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek.

As you know Turtle only makes one of each model - and they take a VERY long time to build. The last project took almost 3 years.

But they are fascinating to see up close - enjoy these photos!

(if you are confused, you can get to my blog at the bottom of the main page at DHS Diecast Home Page

Enjoy!

That’s one awesome truck!!! What exactly is turtle models? Are they connected with dhs somehow? I remember seeing some of their stuff years back, but hadn’t seen anything from them in a couple years

Turtle is a model builder from way back. He builds in brass and only one at a time. The name of the company says something about the speed at which the models are built.

For example, he told me the tool boxes on this truck took over 9 hours to complete. The models are masterpieces of course but also fascinating to see.

If you go back into my blog, I posted many of Turtle's models over the years. Great stuff.
