Re: Stug IV In 1/18th Scale

I am thinking of $80 for the short kit fighting compartment only . The front glacias and rear deck would be extra Thoughts ? That works for me, Picklehaube. I know if one is kitbashing with one of the 21st plastic RC Panzer IVs, it’s possible to cut the front glacier and rear deck down to size with...

Re: Stug IV In 1/18th Scale

Picklehaube, that’s great and thanks for the info. I’m really glad to hear the kit will fit the 21st Panzer IV and that you’ll eventually cast the lower hull sections as well. A couple more questions: Will the model have the periscopes for the driver‘s position? Also will it contain other smaller pa...

Re: JSI 1/18 scale F-14A converted to G.I. Joe XP-14F Skystriker.

That looks really cool 8)

Neat to see how a Skystriker would have looked in actuality, had a real F-14 ever been painted that way.

Re: Stug IV In 1/18th Scale

That looks really nice, Picklehaube! I’m actually rather tempted by this... I built Aracula’s Stug IV kit a few years ago, and it would be nice to take a crack at one again. A couple questions though: Is the kit designed to be grafted onto a 21st Century Panzer IV hull/chassis or will you be making ...

Re: SBD on the Bench

Very nice work so far, Fockewulf! Isn’t this kit from Hobby Boss? Does it have fixed or retractable landing gear? I built the Hobby Boss 1/18 FW-190A5 and FW-190A8 kits that were based on the Merit 1/18 prebuilt model. They were nearly identical in construction save the FW-190s had fixed landing gear.

Re: Do we really want new WWII figures?

I’d love to see more German tanker figures! I got a bunch of the 21st “Battle of the Bulge” style tanker figures in the white or camouflage coveralls years ago at Walmart and have scrounged up a few of the figures in the black panzerwrap uniforms over the years, but more would definitely be welcome....

Re: 1/18 Scale US 37mm Anti-Tank Gun M3 (Grunt1’s kit)

Axis, I completely agree with your assessment of those clunky joints with the old 21st figures! The new Marauder WWII figures are much better, but still have visible joints. Razor, the dioramas in the background are old 1/32 Forces of Valor diorama sets that I’ve got some 1/30 scale King and Country...

Re: Do we really want new WWII figures?

Good to hear from you, Digger! Marauder, Inc. won’t like this news, given they recently released their WWII figure line... I’ve got a number of the 1/18 Joy Toy figures and agree they are excellent! They would make some amazing WWII figures for sure.

That looks really nice! I’ve got my “Smoke II” F-104 packed up in its box at the moment, but recently took a look at it and I’d forgotten how much 21st oversprayed on the camouflage, at least in my example... You did a significantly better job and it shows 8)

1/18 Scale US 37mm Anti-Tank Gun M3 (Grunt1’s kit)

A while back I purchased Grunt1’s 3D printed kit of the US 37mm Gun M3 from his Battleground Toys shop. I finally got around to building it this past weekend and it made for a nice quick project. https://i.postimg.cc/xCspBMrv/DA94-E3-E4-5215-4-DAF-A2-E3-03-EF0927-CC3-D.jpg Grunt1’s M3 is a fantastic...
