1/18 German Leader's car Mercedes G4

https://fivediecast.com/product/mcg-1-18-mercedes-g4-w31-1938-2/ Just released but i don't think it is specifically supposed to be Hitler's, just a convenient colour choice. ;) There is also an all black version available but i don't think Hitler rode in an all black one ever, did he?

Re: 1/18 diecast Chinese/Russian truck

Ok hold on. There are 2 models of this truck on Ebay. One is 1/18 and the other is 1/24.
So check carefully if thinking of buying. Shop around and make offers to find best price you can.

Did anyone ever make a 1/18 Rufe conversion kit?

PH did you? Seems like a natural. I know the Rufe didn't have u/c legs but I think most could live with it. All that is really needed is the main float and 2 wing floats. The rear fairing under the tail could be scratch built.

Re: Why does the BBI P-51 have a big hole behind the radiator flap?

there's supposed to be a small square panel there; I've seen it in several pics. I'm wondering if they were commonly removed during the war for some reason. It's an odd error....it took more effort and expense to make the hole than to have just made it a flush panel.

Why does the BBI P-51 have a big hole behind the radiator flap?

It's a square hole, in front of the tail wheel and behind the radiator flap on the underside. There is a panel covering it on the real plane but not on BBI's model. Anyone know why?

yes I noticed that.....at first I couldn't figure out if the t-34 was supposed to be a/76 or /85. However I've been talking with the seller and he is very eager to learn and improve. He plans to do 25 additional tank models. With 3D printing it's pretty easy to make improvements to the model and cha...

ok, so I heard back from the seller very quickly. They are indeed 3D printed so he said he will make it whatever size I want. I suggested he advertise that fact in his listings.

Re: Interesting 1/20 Armor on ebay

it's an unusual scale the seller has chosen. Not much interest in 1/20 armour. Usually you see 3d printed 1/18 and 1/16 offered (often both are offered by the same seller) This seller would be wise to switch to one or both of those scales....assuming it is 3d printed of course. I've contacted him wi...

Got an email from SmallJoes about Hiya's upcoming GI Joe 4 inch figure line. I'm not much of a Joe fan, but the figures look very good. 11 coming out initially, from the movies. Not cheap at $30 a figure though. Check them out on smalljoes if interested.

New Ray 1/18 Side by Side Vehicles

Can anyone vouch that these are actually 1/18 scale? I don't trust New Ray when it comes to their scale claims. I haven't been able to find them in person, so I can't examine the model before buying, so i'd have to buy online and don't want to get burned by an oversize/undersize model.

1/24 Diecast Chinese WZ-10 Attack Helicopter

This is kind of a neat thing I stumbled across. Nice looking diecast model of a Chinese WZ-10 attack helicopter. Nearly 2 feet long. 1/24 not 1/18 but it is in scale with the Power Team Aerial Rocket Helicopter (Chinese Z-9) and would make a nice pair. Not cheap however. https://www.ebay.com/itm/314...

Big Daddy Missile launchers

Big Daddy is a brand name that makes 4 different missile launcher trucks. They all look ok. Claims the truck is 20 inches long, but i'm skeptical, probably more like 16 inches long and the box it comes in is 20. Has anyone seen these? https://www.ebay.ca/itm/404330102248?hash=item5e23f3bde8:g:vyYAAO...

I just read this entire thread. Very interesting discussion from years ago. The eternal battle between 1/18 and 1/16 tanks. :) I've taken a sort of compromise position. Larger vehicles I stick with 1/18. But artillery and small tanks, like the panzer I, FT, tankettes etc I will dabble in 1/16. Even ...

Re: 1/18 BBI Abrams with Mine Plow?

I think the base tank is the Bravo Team Abrams, not the BBI. It's a strange custom......very elaborate in some areas and very simplistic in others. Looks pretty cool though.

I thought at first it might be some under scale GI Joe, Power Team or some such tank but I'm pretty sure it's 1/18 now.
