1/144 Metal Troops Creation - "The next generation" (preview)







"coming soon" ... The next generation "metal troops" models in 1/144!!!
I think we can expect higher quality and great detail and plenty of innovation in the choice of model selection!
some really good ideas well implemented, finally a company that listens to its public and customers!

I am gonna have to get me some of those, the engineering panzer and the tank transporter set up (any bets that this will come out in at least two colurs? - one for your desrt tanks and one for your euro tanks?) the metal troops R01 panther would look great on the tank transporter!!!

1/144 concorde & base





Models by Ralph Currell
Ok, I normally do not feature paper models, but there are some interesting items here!
esepcailly a modern aircraft display base.
.
Checkout the range of 1/144, 1/700 and many other interesting items, of airships, rockets, buildings etc.
.
Obviosuly with a bit of skill you could "up scale" or "down scale" to provide interesting display or wargame pieces and scenarios?

1/144 "Model Corps" at the Movies!!!




I think you will like this site?
Have you ever watched a film or movie and thought that is not a tiger tank!
Well you were probably correct!
This site has an unusual but very interesting approach to model making.
The man guy who runs this seeks to recreate those "ersatz panzers" from the films.
This means if the Tiger tank was actualy an T-34 with some metal plate welded to to the chassis the very same tank is recreated!
.
I think its a great new idea that most people do not bother to try!

please also chek out his home page for more cool stuff

1/160 - "Little People" - London










this is a site of an a London based artist who makes scenes with "N-gauge" figures and leaves them in London streets. It was interesting to see that he uses railway figures that we also use!
