  8. that tank is AMAZING MAN. !!!!!! though i am into modern.. your work is much better than my own. i myself was into collecting One Sixth scale figures for a number of years [ 20 or so lol ] before getting back into plastic modeling and love this item, I got back into plastic modeling as i was seeing myself and others work the same magic in doing one sixth scale figures as one would for Modeling as for the original topic I agree also that a Model is a model is a model. no matter what subject.. Armor SCI FI ,whatever. the skills needed to often accomplish this type of work are still used in the obsession ''er uh'' Hobby LOL i WAS ASKED by a friend who disagrees with me / us on this topic . He says a toy is a toy. and that if we want to bring toys to gatherings. and enter them in contests. that ONE OUGHT TO SPONSOR A CATEGORY, I myself would be willing if i thought there was enough interest. Kev,
  9. Hey folks , I would like opinions on this matter from those who have witnessed this sort of thing, I have seen a few shows where i have seen an item , and thought to myself '' i didnt know that there was a kit of ???? only to find out from the owner that it was a re worked and re- done toy, in this case we will say it was an Avatar Gunship. and A very neat item i thought . well constructed i will ad. very impressive work here, then i found out later that it was the Toy that had been done. it went on to win an award and get a bit of praise I now have had several conversations concerning the re-working of toys . adding details and repaints. and custom decals made for the items . In my opinion , As the same techniques go into the building of such items. [or should i say deconstruction and rebuild. that there ought to be a category at shows for said items. the conversations have been all across the board from NO its not true modeling to its still a toy, to WOW what awesome items folks are doing. I have seen several items at shows that have been done and deserve the awards they get, and have done a few myself. such as doing Dioramas for One sixth Scale Military action figures . in which many of the same modeling techniques were done as said early on here. lets hear it folks, what the opinions out there are.. Kev,
  10. A few years ago [OK its been about 20 years or so , as i recall. i saw a funny story in FSM magazine about Murphy's laws of model building. and i have no clue why, but it kinda stuck. though i do not have the story any longer and don't remember it , \ So i thought i might ask you good folks about it . is there one out there who has this still or remembers it. also looking to hear funny model builders jokes and story,s so i will begin with this one. Two Modelers were talking, and one looks over at the other and says, '' Do you believe in reincarnation Joe ? Joe looks back and says he does not, the other looks over and says that that is probably good . and tells his friend that he really hates Re Pops anyhow, [yea its a groaner lol] NEXT !
