Re: PTE Recons

PTE fans might want to check out the following Facebook page. It seems to be the place where news concerning new PTE items is released. They just announced that there will be an upgraded version of the 8 wheeled amphibian with new roll bars over the top, released this year. https://www.facebook.com/...

Re: 1/6 ITEMS

Just like there are 1:18 hobbyists that do amazing and awe inspiring work, there are also those that do the same in 1:6 scale. If you're a 1:6 hobbyist or considering it and you want to be inspired (or humbled) then take a look at the Facebook albums of Miguel Tavarez. After looking at his work, I c...

Re: 1/6 ITEMS

Thanks for the positive comments on the previous figure that I posted. This second figure is probably my favorite figure in my collection and depicts a Russian VV MVD (Interior Troops of the Ministry of Internal Affairs) sniper on patrol somewhere in Chechnya, between 2000 and 2009. This figure is f...

Re: 1/6 ITEMS

I'm seeing some very nice figures and vehicles so far. If we're going to make this thread a 1:6 permanent discussion area, then I suppose I can contribute some images of a few figures of mine. There has been a lot of 1:6 scale modern Russian gear produced in the last few years but this first figure ...

M&C Toys / Power Team Elite web store

Those that are interested in the PTE Quonset Hut or SAM Truck, might want to take a look at the PTE web store. Apparently it's not just for corporate customers only. An OSW user in Virginia signed up for an account and added a single Quonset Hut (no price given but that might only show when signed i...

Re: Russian Tanks/SPg's

Kduck I could for sure build that vehicle, it looks rather easy to build actually. I've seen your work and I'm sure that you could do an awesome job. I don't do any 1:18 scratch building or conversions but the lines are similar to the Chinese IFV from Power Team and I've wondered if that vehicle co...

Re: Russian Tanks/SPg's

It's not a tank or an SPG and it's certainly not WW2 but I would consider coming back to 1:18 for a BRDM-2 and some appropriate 1st or 2nd Chechen War Russian figures to go along with it.

Re: 1/18 Soviet figures ( afghanistan ) Ebay

The articulation is definitely limited but they appear to be articulated at the waist and neck as well. The PKM gunner has his head rotated to the left in the image with the Arabs and camels above and you can see that the first boxed figure is rotated at the waist in the image below. It might be pos...

Re: 1/18 Soviet figures ( afghanistan ) Ebay

These look pretty cool but the limited articulation is disappointing. Also the assault rifles look like AK-47's rather than the proper AK-74's or AKM's. The sniper in the KLMK jumpsuit is very cool but the pattern isn't painted densely enough. Still, they do look good and the change of subject matte...

New Power Team Elite Chinese SAM system

I posted this in the PTE Recons thread but I don't know if anyone checks that old thread anymore. Anywhere there is what appears to be a new SAM truck pictured on the Power Team website. It looks to be modeled on the Chinese HQ12 L/MRSAM system: http://www.mctoy.com.hk/index.php/i/toy/277 http://i35...

Re: <Sigh> Here we go again. Another rumor of the return of

According to the latest information posted in the thread at OSW whatever it is they're planning definitely isn't 1:6. I suppose that still leaves hope that they will do something 1:18 related but I still remain skeptical.

Maritime96, I honestly wasn't thinking that you were questioning my credibility.

<Sigh> Here we go again. Another rumor of the return of 21C

I haven't posted here in awhile since I've moved on to 1:6 scale but I still check in here on occasion because there is sometimes some crossover between 1:18 and 1:6 scale when it comes to news about military action figures. I'm well aware that almost 5 years ago that 21C was supposedly reborn as Al...
