Greetings from germany

    Hello mates!

    Im the new guy from germany. Located in Nürnberg (city of the famous MAN Tankfactory).
    The main hobby is 1:16 RC tanking but you there you need some nice figures ^^ so there is the main interest in 1:16 / 1200mm figures (especially german DAK ones).

    My main goal is to gain some skills in modifying figures to make them suitable and unique for the tanks and also for any kind of guns etc.
    Second goal is to get some skill in painting the figures (im very very bad :whistle:)

    I hope I could introduce my self a bit to you guys and have a good time!

    Thank you Mate!

    My user name should be the last unit my grandad was with the dak back in the days after my resarch.

    Servus, Patrick! Wilkommen ins Forum! Welcome!

    If you're a builder of 1/16 armor, you should check out East Coast Armory, http://eastcoastarmory.com/ The young man who runs that business scratch-builds 1/16 armor and supplies parts to other builders. I have seen some of his models at a local IPMS show, and they are fantastic.

    I look forward to seeing your work, too!

    Vielen Dank Kameraden.
    I hope that I can build a few things the next time during my holiday. @Brad thanks for the link I already know this guy but 1:6 is little bit to big for me :unsure: 1:16 is a very handsome scale especially for a good range of figures.
    I already have a question: when can I post a figure search on the marketplace? Wanted to post my search for some special ones but its saying I have servant permission. Thanks for helping me.

    Hmm-I thought he was producing complete models in 1/16, too. He's advertised parts in that scale. I apologize for the confusion!

    Regarding trading, if I remember our Hausregeln correctly, you'll need to make a minimum number of posts before you can post in the marketplace section.
