Re: 1/6 forums so I can list some stuff for sale?

Just remember, 1/6 21C vehicles and figs have lost a lot of all their value. The M5, if complete and running will garner some interest but not the high prices you saved them for. DML Sherman's and German light tanks just put any 21C to shame. I've gotten down to 4 M5's and the only real value will g...

Is this a whole 1/18 area we have never explored?

I volunteer my services to do some close and personal exploration of these "tankers". 8)

Re: 1/18 Vietnam M113 with 106mm recoilless rifle **BUILT**

Sorry for being no help to you this AM, but I got curious and checked and the "blisters" are extra flotation cells found on M113A1's. Pics of the flotation cells are found in David Doyle's "M113 APC in Action, In Action" - Squadron Signal, on pages 25 and 43. The pics are from two different division...

My point is that if she does appear in Tora Tora Part 2, nobody would even confuse Weaver with the mountains the Japanese planes fly between on the way to Pearl Harbor. :roll:

Re: 1/18 ALIENS armored personnel carrier

dragon: As a movie expert, I am surprised you missed a few of her movies. Like most actresses, Sigourney Weaver has done more than her share of nude scenes. Two of her nude scenes that come to mind took place in "Death and the Maiden" and "Half Moon Street". Both were not flashes but long scenes. Mo...

Re: 1/18 ALIENS armored personnel carrier

Given that $500 is a lot but with a WW production of 350 pieces, at least 3/4 of the sales will be to guys never even taking the APC out of the box, hoping to resell it at a big profit. Think about the 1/6 Aliens Power Loader with Ripley inside. That bad boy sold for $250 when it came out at a time ...

Very nice work for a "should have/could have been" type of a vehicle. During WW2, no quad mount was ever mounted on a WC-63. An experimental vehicle with a Maxon M33 (twin .50 cal mount) was tried without a rear body but that single truck didn't work and never left Aberdeen Proving Grounds. The pict...

Re: Question About the Merit 1:16 Scale Tanks

Sorry but the T-34 is one piece for the commanders and drivers hatches. You cannot pry them open.

DML Sherman in 1/6 has most of the hatches spot clued down but they can be popped up to be open. Hinges are easily made, but no such luck in Merits 1/16 T-34.

Re: Forces of Valor King Tiger 1/16

TMP had my Sherman for $199.99 and $22.93 shipping, total $222.92. A great dealer to deal with.

Box was huge. I've had 1/6 tanks shipped to me in smaller boxes.... almost.

War Toys is also a great etailer. They sold me almost of my big tanks. Quick, courteous dealer.

Re: Forces of Valor King Tiger 1/16

Informative video about the FOA Sherman. The amount of interior detail is awesome.

I ordered one of TMC's Shermie. EBay has a couple at the same TMC low price of $200 but TMC has shipping at half of what the eBayers are charging.

It will make a nice addition to my growing 1/16 collection.

Re: How about showing your collection

Aren't we all changing our display constantly. Especially us 1/6ers. Every time I get a new "toy", something has to be moved around to display it. :roll:

Still looking for space for my latest cannon. Cannons have long trails that take up as much room as a tank,...... almost.
