It's me again. has anyone come across any simple Stryker,M-113 or US military trucks (2.5 ton, HEMET etc.) that are around or that can be converted to 28-30mm scale? I'm not looking for paper models to display but simplified versions for use with figures.

I have and love his sets but I tried to blow them up and they just didn't work out too well. I'm thinking that 1/100 would be the smallest that I can blow up and have them look reasonably well on the table. Thanks for taking the time to post the link though.

Have you looked at Christopher Roe's models over at Genet Models? I don't know if some of the convoy vehicles would suit your needs, but at least it lets me remind everyone of the wonderful collection of models he has available.

I totally forgot to mention the Papermau blog. If you're not used to navigating the site (and it's very pic heavy), you might get some mileage scrolling about 2/3 of the way down and checking out the labels you can filter on, on the right. Things are tagged by scale as well as subject matter.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
