• Pardon the dust while the boys rebuild the site.

    The board will be in a state of disarray as I get things sorted out, for a little while at least.

    The new incarnation is using Xenforo as the system software. It is much like what we are used to, with a few differences. I will see about making a FAQ to help point out the differences for the members.


    One IMPORTANT difference for all of us old timers is that the 'mail' system is replaced with what are called 'conversations'/

    There is no 'Inbox' or 'Out box' or 'Sent' folders anymore.

    Think of Conversations as private 'threads' or topics that don't exist in a forum, that you start with another member. NOTE: Conversations can include more than one member if you or someone else in the conversaion, likes.
    Takes a little getting used to but I am sure you all can get a hang of it.


    Only a slightly modified default default Xenforo style is available for now. Once the new SAG style is ready it will be available.

    All existing users should be able to login with their usernames and passwords once the site goes up.


    If anyone has difficulties logging in please contact me at sixthvanguard@gmail.com.


    Thank you for your support and patience. I know it has been a loooong road.

    Erwin Rommel dio help question, what wounds did he sustain when his car was attacked?

    I'm working on an Erwin Rommel dio. My crappy eye sight makes the process 10 times harder than it used to be. I tried to look this up online but gave up. Can anybody tell me what wounds ER sustained when his car was attacked? Thanks. Looking forward to first dio since my brain popped. I hope I...

    Long Strange Trip

    Wow. I can't believe I haven't been on since March. I was shocked to see figures shipping at $160 bucks too. Anyway, on March 8 I was laying on the sofa watching the boob tube and I had a massive stroke. I died twice and somehow I'm still hear. Doctors say I'm a miracle. WTF. My eyesight is not...

    Dragon's Schweres Wurfgerät 41 kit.

    Great build. Every aspect looks awesome. Isn't it amazing how little consistency there is from one cameras color to another.

    Hello from Spain

    Welcome. I agree, your work is fantastic. I always say the 1:1 compliment is the highest accolade a person can receive as a scale modelist and as others have stated you have earned that compliment! You have mastered the most overlooked detail in the hobby too - capturing human form and posture...

    Miss Ya Lemmy ................RIP

    Not a big Motorhead fan, but how could you not love Lemmy. When asked in an interview a few years back if it was true that he had been with 1200 women he said it was closer to 1000. Atta boy! RIP Lemmy.

    Great photos Dutchman! Thanks for posting. A trip to Bastogne is an absolute must for any WWII nut, or should I say "Nuts".

    40-45 Then & Now: Following kamfgruppe Peiper's route

    A couple years back I was in La Roche standing on the other side of the river across from the Achilles. I was up the hill road that runs along side the castle - the night sky was illuminated by millions of stars. I thought about the soldiers from all of the armies that passed through the area...

    Quiet moment in Bastogne...

    Wow Hank. You are 100% right about that. He would have been an awesome addition to the Foxhole Rita dio. Looks like we were working on the project together. He's fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Slick

    Well done Fred. You should be really happy and proud of the way that your ton of invested time turned out. Us dio guys know that there is nothing easy about an elaborate layout such as what you put together here. Fantastic job. I saw one reply that thought that a little dirt/weathering would...

    Foxhole Rita & Christmas in the Ardennes

    I wish I had time to do a new Christmas dio, who knows maybe a quickie over the weekend. But in the mean time I thought I would recycle an oldie.

    Merry Xmas from the cellar.

    Actually Peter, you could mass produce that HS and sell it to the crazy Philadelphia Eagles football fans as Chip Kelly. LOL. Here's a pic of Chip on a website called Southern Philly: https://southernphilly.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/college-boy/

    Great figure. The HS captures the spirit of the dio perfectly. Nice use of your barrels too. Merry Christmas Peter! SLICK
