    1/72 started 2 months ago. It has taken me a long time. If you want to know how I did anything just PM me or comment here. It is 3 american vehicles ambushed by German troops and artillery

    Nice work B-17, I've always been into 1:72 scale military figures and vehicles myself. Do you have a large over all photo of the entire scene with the soldiers & vehicles in place?

    Hey guys, currently im working on a diorama i want to build which has a FM-1 Wildcat and a F6F-3 Hellcat. Im making them a land-based squadron in the Pacific, any squadrons in real life with the mix of those two planes?
    If any answers arise, thanks

    There weren't any squadrons that mixed those aircraft. The FM-1 and 2 Wildcat were almost exclusively used on Escort Carriers.

    Your most realistic bet, would be to display the two as a display at Oshkosh during Airventure.

    That's great job well done, I know someone that makes Ships with Popsicle sticks and Toothpicks, cuts them up to make the ships, After his finished you would never know he made them from Popsicle sticks. Some ships are over 6' long.
