I make 1/72 scale model airplanes. You should see my Italian front Folkwolf. I made it from hand, and it looks pretty darn good! Italeri makes some good kits. I have been working on a B-52 for like 4 months now. It looks like crap, but I'll try and finish it.

i like plastic models more. Ive been making 1/35 models for about two years and really enjoy it. Its also more fun because if your good then you can get into great detial and you can also custom make their equiptment. although you can do that with figures too. I now have about 30 kits worth of figures veheciles equiptment and am trying to think of a wat to eg red of em. Krupp i highly suggest you start making them because they dont take that long to make and i usually just pop in an eposide of bob and make 2 or 3 figures. Plus the more u work with them the better they will turn out. Ill actually try to post some pics of em just to show u the detial.

I own them both since I do 1/35 modelling. Dragon releases the 1/6 figures from their 1/35 line and so I am able to model the miniature off his 1/6 likeness, or purchase the bigger guy later to add to my collection. I will try to post pics of my Nashorn from Italy in '44 and a Wiking Grenadier in Hungary in '45 as soon as I can borrow a decent camera to take high resolution pics.
BTW Has anyone seen more of the Dragon 1/6 figure with the Vampir MP-44 set? There is a new one coming out (if you check their website you will see) and I have only seen a photo of him in a line up with Dragon's other upcoming 1/6 releases.
Yep. Those are all my paintjobs. I've done Battletech and Star Trek mini's for years, and have had some of my stuff published. Airsoft kinda took over as my hobby of choice in the last couple of years though.

Some people are like Slinkies. They're not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

There is a company whose name is something like Miniart which is located in Eastern Europe and has produced a large variety of 1/35 scale diorama pieces including buildings for extremely low prices.
The only other easily found alternative is Verlinden diorama kits, which although of nice detail, are a big pricey and tend to have a nasty amount of bubbles (due to the resin process) and the need for significant clean up.
CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: HIKI is good if your on a budget. The uniforms are cheap, and that will be pretty obvious when you get your hands on it. The sizing is off, might want to order one size up from what you wear. I bought pants from them, I needed to get 2x my normal size

derriese: Hello everyone! Did anyone of you guys bought equipment or tunics from HikiShop? I want to get the m32 tunic (for cosplaying as a Nazi Zombie), but the price seems very low ($45)and I'm afraid I'm going to get scammed .

CPL. Mills 2nd Rangers: Hiki Shop quality is passable, there are better quality out there but if you want to through together an impression quick and on the cheap they are the way to go. I bought my Heer pants from them.

suomifinn: Hikishop is legit. I use them for my Finnish impression. Some of the stuff can be off in terms of accuracy, easily fixable though. For the price it's hard to beat. Great for more obscure countries.
