    reenacting in miniature

    Gas prices soaring mean prolly no driving off to battles, so I will have to be content with collecting or using miniatures to reenact. that 1/6 th scale stewart is going to be nice to mess around with in the woods. I need to find some other local tank nuts willing to build or buy some operating tanks to have battles with. sheesh how old am I? never mind, you never outgrow your need for milk, line that out and substitute ""tanks"" :grin:

    uniforms aand models

    to me it would be ok to wear a tankers helmet and overalls while operating an armored RC Model. the Germans could wear panzer wraps while operating their Tiger I or whatever, and even have Luftwaffe clad pilots and RC Stukas or Kriegsmarine uniforms when operating schiffe on the Pond :roll:

    Are your 1:6 scale models radio operated?

    metal ones are much higher

    Of course you get what you pay for and I know that there are all metal 1/6 scale kits with wonderful motors and transmissions. but they start at about 1000 USD. that is to high for little old me
