    1/32 figures?

    Ahh, the age old complaint of 1/35 ! I have to agree with others in that...while Tamiya 1/35 scale kits are quite nice, ...1/32 was already around and established ..why in the heck did he upset the apple cart ! To original post : you can sometimes find a few decent figures by searching for 54mm....though most of those listings are toy soldiers. I would like to get more 1/32 resin figures into the market, but it is difficult finding a digital sculptor for the process of making 3d printed masters and then molding those to cast in resin ( to keep the price of production and retail reasonable ) Joe
  6. Tony, Yes. That one. We need nut -n- bolt level detail ! Joe
  7. Thanks for the responses and discussion. Yes, the early iron wheeled flak 16 version. An associate of mine and I are looking at producing a multi-media kit of this gun and need a good set of walk around shots and close ups. I have several views of this piece from the left, and this obviously is not enough info. When we became aware that Aberdeen had one, we figured we could track down where it went and go forward with getting more info. As far as I know it has never been done as a scale model kit, and both of think it would be a good choice for an early artillery piece to do. Naturally, we need as much info as we can possibly get so it can be drawn up. Thanks again everyone for any info / help on this project. Joe
  8. Tony, Thanks...great collection of photos, but they don't have the piece I'm looking for
  9. ....But there is a whole invoice, shipping label, extra tape and the "special" gold envelope..... I'm with ya...I couple bucks for handling is ok, but $10 plus dollars is nuts ! Not to mention, that the post office and other shippers will pick up from your door.... Joe
  10. I'm looking for detailed photos on the german 8.8 cm Flak 16 ( grand daddy of the famous WWII "88" ) I have gathered all the photos I could find on the web, but there are questions only detailed photos can answer. They have one, but I don't know which location it went to... Joe
  11. I was wondering if anyone here is close to the armor and artillery collection that used to be at Aberdeen Proving Grounds .....?? I believe it was moved to Virginia ? ( I am still a bit unclear on this, as I heard it may be near Atlanta, GA. also ) If someone is nearby the collection, there is a particular piece of artillery that I need detailed photos of... Any help would be appreciated and I would be happy to pay a reasonable price for your efforts ! Thanks, Joe
  12. The 1/6 scale market has come a long way ! Joe
  13. I'll be watching this closely...I have the kit and some aftermarket stuff....I intend one day to build the bird I flew as a gunner on ( HH-60 of the 305th RQS ) ....I need to search out a decal sheet yet... Good luck with your build - I'm really looking forward to following along ! Joe
  14. Look where the wire goes outside on the edge...not lined up straight. This was really bad on the Macchi kit.
  15. Dirk, Nice work on the Yak ! Looking forward to seeing this project when finished !! Joe
