Re: How to create your own 1/18 model aircraft

Jon i saw on the walmart website a product call composimold. It is a re-usable rtv. It is perfect for this sort of project. We all hate to use large quantities of expensive rtv for one time use and then the mold goes to waste, Also if something goes wrong the expensive rtv goes to waste, however com...

Re: 1/18 Figure Joints

I seen on the internet like 3 years ago a guy that build clothes for his custom 3 3/4" GI Joe figures. The clothes hide the articulation and the cloth color vs shiny plastic clothes made the figure more realist. The only thing i didn't like is that the clothes look bulky because he use figures that ...

Re: My Conversation with A Merit Rep Regarding 1/18th Scale

I had a bbi f16 at one time which i paid $75 on ebay from a private owner. I don't collect airplanes at the moment, the point is that many of us can not afford to pay $200 for a aircraft but i rather have Merit make it so maybe on the future we can find a used one on ebay for $100 bucks. The 1/18 sc...

Re: 1/16 tanks

By looking at the last picture looks like there is plenty of room on the back seats for the figures legs compared to my 21st century kubelwagen.
I curious to see how the 1/18 scale figures fit.

Re: Anyone got a 1/16 king Tiger from Trumpeter?

I assume you are building interior for a 1/16 jagdtiger. If you are casting complete interiors for it or any tank let me know, i might need interior for some of my models. I heard trumpeter will release soon a panzer IV with interiors. You should consider casting that engine too. It can be used on t...

Re: 1/16 tanks

I plan to paint it but I have to admit I hesitate as I think it could be a kind of crime for such a ...

Re: OURWAR WW2 Germans on the way to US!

To me the most disappointment was that the company didn't produce the long sleeve infantry man shown on the prototype versions. I guess some one tough the Popeye fore arms versions was way more cool.

I will still get one set or maybe two. The articulation and weapons are really a plus.

Re: Fighting 1:18th Exclusive Figure

That is good news for the 1/18 modern soldier community.
Is the kit made of resin?
If so maybe in the future there is hope we get a WWII figures in the form of kits.
