Re: More inexpensive 1:72 'Toy' military vehicles from China on e-Bay

I wrote a review of the "4D assembly tanks" set (YPR765/ AS90/ StuG/ Tiger etc boxed set)that was in the second to last(?) issue of The Journal. They feature a limited number of running gear options shared between them, the tracks are very thick single-piece rubber bands with HUGE track guides (whic...

Re: What`s everyone working on?

Trying to find the box with the remaining bits (or maybe just the bits because I have a habit of chucking kit boxes out when I start a model) for my 1/700 Tarantul & Osa FACs. I've just bought and printed the PDF for Bulldogs Away[1] and it looks to be a pretty good game. I've got two Nanuchkas and ...

Re: Lovely Ferret Scout car from Butlers

The photos used on Butler's website are of the 15mm versions (he does his models in numerous scales from 6mm up to 1/48) and I have to admit that the camera does make the striations look quite pronounced. I've got quite a few of the 20mm models and they're pretty good - nothing that an ordinary coat...

Re: air wars

What level of naval games are you doing at those scales Fairly small/ limited... at least the battles/ actions are, but with two or more tables pushed together to give room to manoeuvre. They (like the campaign and rules) are based around fictional countries with limited budgets. This hasn't stoppe...

Re: air wars

Apart from using 1/72 aircraft on-table for "normal" games I've switched entirely to 1/600 (Tumbling Dice so far but looking at Odzial Izmy (sp?) too). That scale allows a better ground scale and more "realistic" looking ranges. Also sort-of fit with the naval stuff we use (1/600, 1/700, 1/720). Rul...

Re: SiG 15cm from Butlers

Yeah, Armada is the one (but I'd forgotten the name).
I've emailed Butlers and got a "Thank you for the suggestion" note so it may be under consideration.
I can also envisage Trumpeter getting around to it too, but a BPM version would be around 70% of the price :).

Re: SiG 15cm from Butlers

I assume the photo I borrowed from their TMP advert is of one of the bigger scale prints like 20m or 28mm but I cannot be sure. As far as I'm aware all of the photos on the BPM site are of the 15mm version of the model. The quality/ accuracy of the printing is something quite spectacular. I get the...
