I was surprised to see there was no thread related to this scale of modelling and yes I did do a search :P.

I'm aware that some may find it a "weaker" form of modelling since it's way easier compared to scratch modelling in smaller scales, I also got some smaller scale models but I still prefer 1/6. (Or 12" as some might call it)

I've only recently gotten into 1/6, it was in Normandy, @ St.Mère Eglise that I saw them for the first time and I've been wanting to buy one for over a year. And I went back to Normandy a short while ago and finally bought one, friend of mine bought one too.

Since then I've been expanding, currently I've formed an MG Crew :). (Thanks to some great online retailers!)

So anyway, anyone else into 1/6, perhaps also willing to show their work (Diorama's, figures, etc)

I don't have any recent pictures myself but I've been active at the Sixtharmy group forums and I set up my first single man diorama a long while ago:

(I'm planning on setting up a diorama with my current 3 axis guys but they're all awaiting some extra equipment that I ordered and I still have to weather them)

IMG%5DSince I cant post them in the thread I'll just link em: http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/HeroBW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero2BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero3BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero4BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero5BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero6BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero7BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/Hero8BW.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h195/StijnC/HeroEndBW.jpg

For probably the best possibly idea of what the hobby can do you should all check out this link: http://vincesgallery.smugmug.com/Hobbies

One of the best known website and man in the hobby as he has really made some of the finest and largest diorama's out there! (Theres ofcourse many other diorama's that are just as great)

Yeah, that's one of the things that put me off this scale - the models look a bit like smart versions of Action Man... Nice diorama though Unkn0wn :) There's a load more photos of them here: http://www.tiger1.co.uk/Dioramas/dios.htm
