Re: Opinions on value

The ones you got are nice, all worth $150 each NIB. The rest are not worth $150 each. They are nice but can be had for less.

Re: 1/18 Lippish P.13a Update with Pictures!

Jon, I believe there is much more interest in the REAL FIGHTERS. All my collecting friends here in Germany told me the same: "great to see but I would like to see the real planes not the paper fighters. So a NAtter, Kraftei, Volksjäger should bring more interest (I really hope :roll: ) What do you ...

Re: 1/18 Lippish P.13a Update with Pictures!

Those posts are hopeful for sure but the fact that I have only sold 3 kits makes me worried that this scale is on its last legs. Maybe its just this project? Its a small plane that I thought would not require allot. I thought it would be desirable for Luftwaffe collectors and serious aviation collec...

Re: 1/18 Lippish P.13a Update with Pictures!

Thanks! Im happy that the concept has been proven and I hope bmore will follow in my footsteps and make more 1/18 aircraft from 1/48.

I know that if this had been done 4-5 years ago there would have been much more intrest. Do you guys think 1/18 is dead? is Hydrospan too late?

Re: Looking for 1/18 figure in shorts to be British WWII sol

You could use the savage figure from indiana jones for the legs and use a reg soldier for the shorts and boots, may need alittle sculpting. http://i164.photobucket.com/albums/u27/Order66Customs/DakKnickers.jpg http://www.warbird-photos.com/gpxd/viewtopic.php?t=11414&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=60

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 co...

Re: Nooo...No more models ????

Im really not going to loose sleep over this. I think someone is just bored. FX studios have used models for years and still do without paying anything back to the source of the object. Look at the newest MadMax movie for instance. Do you think they paid GM anything for using models of the Cadillacs...

Hey thanks guys! It means a lot to me! 1/18 is a fun scale to work in, big enough to get in great little details but small enough to do large stuff without needing a warehouse. Jon, one of your german tank commanders wears a furred winter cap. How did you made or get it? Really nice customized model...

Ok guys, all kidding and Hitler spoofs aside, its been years... As far as Im concerned we have 3 options: 1. Wait for Merit. Upside is that the prototype looks nice and those that cant paint will get one. Downside is it may never happen and who knows what the price will be. 2. Copy the Skyworks kit....

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

I have to say Jnewboy, you did some impressive research to bring this together. I definitely think this works best with the smooth contours of aircraft, but I could see some armor coming out of it. Great job my friend!!! :salute: Thanks my friend, the problem with armor is that it is in 1/35 scale....

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

I'd love to have the Ta-152 conversion, I have a donor 190D I wanted to customize, but a Ta-152 would be sweet. How would the main landing gear work? I'm assuming it would be either permanently up or down? I will make them able to be up or down but not with a hinge joint like the 21st Cen 190D. It ...

Many cities have a art Co-op where you pay a 30.00 or so membership fee and you have access to 3D printers, ceramic ovens, CAD software and such. I've made a 1/18 Typhoon, Tempest, F4 II, Me-163 and others. I had a Harrier II before Merit. I also have made an assortment of different munitions. Ther...

Re: How big should 1/18 scale aircraft get?

Hard to say what I'd do... A B-17 is pushing the limits for me. Don't get me wrong, it's my favorite WWII aircraft and would look awesome in 1:18 scale, but really, I'd have nowhere to put it, either hanging or on ground display. Part of the reason why I'm not collecting those 1:6 scale-ish RC plan...
