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.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
