Si,
All my WW2 vehicles are 1/43 scale, so anything 1/48 would look too small in comparison.

In other news, check this out:

This video was shot by two guys who ran on my layout for an op session event in October. Great guys, and they got some good video!

Trackside Model Railroading, an online magazine, is coming over on Saturday to photograph the layout! https://www.tracksidemodelrailroading.com/ this shows what their work looks like: https://www.tracksidemodelrailroading.com/current-free-edition-preview/

I ran into them at a model train show in Seattle last month and showed them photos of what I had. They called last night to ask if they could come by this weekend to do the photography. They do all the work, and I’m really interested in seeing someone else’s take on what I have built. They’ve covered a few layouts around here in the past (the December issue on their website has a cover for a layout in Olympia that I’ve seen a couple of times in person). They’re out of Spokane, so they use a lot of stuff in the northwest corner of the country. They told me they were happy to document a layout with a southeast concept, as they have subscribers around the world. It’s not a free publication, though, so people are going to have to pay for the content to see it. I recently got a CD of a couple of years of their publications, and I liked their work.
I was lining up some trains for the photo shoot on Saturday, and decided to put all three of my wartime-painted ten-wheelers for the first time since I weathered them over a year ago:



And the other end...

The shoot went well yesterday. They got about 5 hours worth of stills and video. Can't wait to see how it looks!

The online article just 'published':

They put a lot of the video they shot on YouTube:

Thanks, Steven.
I really liked what they did.
As this is he second good coverage I've gotten and a third article should be out early this year in the Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette, I've taken to framing covers or first pages of the articles facing the door to the layout room:

There's a space to the right of that for the Gazette article when it comes out (would be great if I got a cover but I doubt they will do that).

This week, I got a lot completed. I took the remains of a busted Bachmann 2-6-0 and made a scrap load of the locomotive parts and a water car out of the tender:

I also lettered an excursion car with my own decals to make it an Army troop car, and weathered it with washes and powders:
