Re: Lots of new 1:18 (and 1:16) items to share

The Marston matting panels are based on the 1:1 scale and each panel comes out to 169.20mm x 23mm. I added this image to the site because that was a great question! https://static.wixstatic.com/media/e7e625_df01fd43256a4ee19b40b31a5450bdbf~mv2.png/v1/fill/w_438,h_199,al_c,q_85,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01/e7e...

Lots of new 1:18 (and 1:16) items to share

This is a pretty random assortment, but hopefully there is something for everyone. :-) Japanese Nambu Type 92 Machine Gun https://static.wixstatic.com/media/e7e625_008cacde1fb647edb8fc270c66e4fa0d~mv2.png/v1/fill/w_438,h_263,al_c,q_85,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01/e7e625_008cacde1fb647edb8fc270c66e4fa0d~mv2.we...

Also if you ask Ernst (Peddinghaus) he will often adjust to 1:18 for you.

Re: Long Tom in 1:18 scale

For the 1/16 M25, in addition to the winches I made the ring and mounts for the MG. Also, in looking around to find the "PTE" missle launcher for sale I realized they were actually made by True Heroes. Unlike the 1/16 M25 where those bits were missing, the True Heroes version has winches and a gun r...

Re: Long Tom in 1:18 scale

There is a diecast Caterpillar D4 tractor in 1:16 that might pass scale wise as a D6 M1 tractor in 1:18. A 1:1 D4 crawler is 120 inches long. Which would be 190mm in 1:16. A 1:1 D6/M1 Crawler is 149 inches which would be 210mm in 1:18. 1:16 D4 https://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/292916376117-0-1/s-l1000....

Re: Long Tom in 1:18 scale

Please forgive my ignorance, but, what is PoE? And do you make anything else for this? I meant to type PTE (Power Team Elite) not PoE. That is the brand these items are produced under now. Also, I believe they were pulled by the M1 tractors as well. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-i764XotS3P8/WB79CRPzjh...

Re: Long Tom in 1:18 scale

I made the Garwood winches for the M25 for the 1:16 crowd. Happy to adjust it to fit the PTE wagon for anyone that is interested.

The CAD is very good. The printer is bad. Endless amounts of sanding and primer. Would your CAD person consider outsourcing the printing?

1:18 Hs-293 German Flying Bomb Kit

I thought I would try something for the flight enthusiasts here. This “flying bomb” was apparently the first cruise missile. It was designed and used by the Germans as a ship killer. It apparently was fairly successful. Early versions were controlled by mothership plane with an extremely long wire. ...

I've been toying with the idea to make a few mod kits for the various 1:18 diecast Willys jeeps that have been made over the years. These jeeps are readily available on the shelf at Meijer and on Amazon or ebay for around $25-30. The kit would be two armor pieces that would allow you to make this: h...

Re: Attaching ordinance?

One other option to consider:
- remove the ordnance from the aircraft
- apply a thin coat of super glue onto the attachment "nub" of the ordnance
- let it fully dry, then reattach it

This will thicken the nub a bit making for a tighter, but not permanent fit.
