Re: Diecast M48

Have all three. The Walmart metal hull is twice as heavy as the others. An obvious weight difference.

Re: 1/18th Scale Dauntless? This may be as close as we get..

Saw a 1/18 scale resin and fiberglass Dautless on ebay the other day. Don't have the $350 to get it.

Re: Should All-Go Make Figures first or Vehicles First

Vehicles - Small ones at lower prices would get the ball rolling, and then move into larger. M3 light; M5 Light; maybe a M7 or M10 on the sherman hull. Even some accessory sets, or small crew served weapons (pupshens, 75mm RR, M45 Quad 50 on Trailer; FLAK 38's). The only figures i would like to see ...

Re: 1:18 Future

I like the idea of 1/18 kits. They need to be like the Testor's ez-build stuff, not trumpeter. Figure 80 for a completed panther, a simple kit like the 21st century 1/32 line minus the paint maybe could run around 30-40. Easier to custom, and lighter on the wallet. Maybe even some dumb-down stuff cl...

Re: TARGET - 1/18 sighting

Was in a target on westheimer blvd in houston last night. Had two FOV WWII soldiers except that they were not. Looks like someone open the package and replaced the figure with PTE soldiers and then returned them. Several other figure packs looked similar.
