    Well, the first picture appears to be 1/6 scale action figures, so I'm not sure how they fit into the scheme of things...

    According to a couple of retailers websites these are 1/32nd scale ... if so, they're a mile away from the sort of things
    we played with as children. The painting in the first photo is utterly astonishing !

    Right... thought it rather too good to be true. One sixth scale ? A painter would need a step ladder to deal with those !

    In my defense, this diorama was on the FB page of the mark, unspecified.(n)
    And yet in my job we have to cut the intelligence.

    The 1/6 Vietnam Dio by a guy called Miguel Taverez who produces these 1/6 scenes he is on Facebook if anyone wants to check out his work...a very talented guy he’s working on a American civil war scene at the moment which is excellent......

    I think, it's a russian manufacturer from St. Petersburg...:

    And the figs are from injektiction plastic, like those of "Masterbox" and "ICM" from Ukraine.

    But I don't think it's a really brandnew brand...

    The Vietnam vignette is not 1:32 or from Russia!

    It's called "Soul Patrol" and was made in 2017 by the american figure lover Miguel (New York) from 1:6 action figures!

    It was shown first at the "Onesixthwarriors" action figure forum in March 2017.

    OSW are new to me ( I don't get out much obviously ) and checking things out a bit, it seems that whole collections
    of heads, bodies, hands, feet, and military kit from all periods, are available of the shelf. Obviously, the painter has a
    bit to do with faces, hands, and general 'weathering' of everything, and Mr Tavarez is clearly a very skilled artist, but
    the initial overwhelming effect of this piece has been a bit diminished for me. Perhaps I'm being a bit dismissive - don't
    mean to be.
