• 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.

    Exclusive onesixth.co.uk Interview With Dragon Models – Not Out of 1/6th Just Resting

    I tend to agree with you, it doesn't make sense. But, then again, I don't see much significance in the responses within the article - I wouldn't expect anything less, no matter what Dragon's game plan was - no company is going to say their done in a given market and close the door of...

    Kurt Knispel body found.

    I think he would be a great subject for a production figure! I think its long past due. I am glad to see he was finally found, I guess even in death he was willing to let others go ahead of him.... Best Wishes, Jim Fowler

    Is Dragon leaving the 1/6 market?

    I don't know guys, But, with the delays in bringing the Firefly to market, I think DML is putting the 1/6 stuff on the back-burner. I think we are in for a long dry-spell...... Well, times and markets change. And, we have to as well.... Jim Fowler

    Is the DML Firefly getting close ?

    Well, I am left wondering what was so wrong it caused a six month delay in the kit's release? Or, what differences in existing parts will this kit improve or change? Is this delay all in the making of a cast upper hull and main gun parts? Are they giving it different tracks? What made...

    What do you guys think about a U.S. 1/6th manafacture

    Well, I think the approach is wrong. What I mean is forget about making figures, there are lots available. Instead, start by making the gear and the clothes/uniforms. Look to sell that as a start, then if that goes well, look into producing whole figures... Just my thoughts, Jim Fowler

    DiD M. Wittmann Tiger Ace limited edition

    I don't know if I totally agree. See, a lot of the photos of him seem to be taken in the field; and there he looks much thinner in the face and more hollowed around the eyes - as you would expect. But, the figure seems to be fashioned more possibly from picture of him on leave. I think the...

    DiD M. Wittmann Tiger Ace limited edition

    Well, I see several places are taking pre-orders on the general release of the Wittmann figure; but, it does not come with that awesome base. Well, even without the base, its a very impressive figure; and, I hope to get one. I think Otto Carius and Kurt Knispel would e two good "Panzer Aces"...

    1/6th Diecast WWII Harley-Davidson Military

    The ZY-Toy version is a bit different from the Toy-Model version. First, the ZY version is part plastic and metal and the Toy-Model version is all metal. They are to completely different model creations as ZY vesrsion's frame is closer to the original, but the fuel tank shape on the Toy-Model...

    Is the DML Firefly getting close ?

    Interesting update: I justgot an email add from Dragon USA Online with a April Fools Promotion of %25 off any order over $75 - promocode = APRILFOOLS2014. That puts the Firefly at approximately $375.00 with free shipping. The catch....its only good for today! In case anyone is...

    Is the DML Firefly getting close ?

    Well, a buddy tried to order one of the DragonUSAonline website and got a reply back from Dragon that it was pushed back to end of April or May....... I want one, but I figure I will wait for it to show up on the market befor seriously worrying about getting one..... Jim

    Well, I went out to HobbySearch - Plastic Model Store already and the problem is they do not stock that model; and, thus no instructions available thru them...... I have searched the web already with no luck. And, Dragoncare won't help help me as I have second-hand kit and no original...

    Need Favor: Instructions for DML Sherman

    Guys, Would it be possible for someone to send me a scan(s) of the instructions for the DML 105 Sherman Kit? I would like to get that sent to the following: RC1PANZER(at)FRONTIER(dot)COM Thanks, Jim

    OK, maybe one more Sherman from DML....

    Guys, I caught the thread elsewhere on the forum on this upcoming Brad Pitt movie called "Furry". I can't help but wonder, given the existing DML Sherman kit/components/parts, if that may be a future subject for a DML kit release? Just pondering the possibilities, Jim

    Any hints on Dragon 1/6 scale armor for next year?

    Jeff, I see the firefly kit not as the out-of-the-box version of a M4 Firefly; it has very strong possibilities as a US M4 too.... I look at one as a possible M4A1/76W or even just a M4A1. Also, the firefly was also fielded by Canada as well as Britain. And, it is one of the most...

    New Panzer_4

    The Panzer 4 is just one of those modeling subjects I never get tired of. So many variants and ways to render them..... I wish we could get DML to bring out a 1/6th kit for it.... Of course, it's demand would probably be high; and, I would go broke trying to buy all of them..... Well, a...
