I have a 5 man "Das Reich" team, one of which identical in equipment and uniform to myself. I have been acquiring and scratch building all the display items our group uses.
We have used these a couple of times at shows, recreating our IG18 gun and crew and PAK36 gun and crew.
During the day, if some kids come past I shout "Stellung!" and the 1:1 crew man the weapons in identical poses to the 1:6 crew.
Goes down a storm..............

My 1.6 Dragon DAK Kubel .A lot of work corecting as the Dragon kit is a mixture of early and late features .As its DAK I have gone for a early model .This is RC but I bought it ready converted.The front lights and Notek light work as do the rear and convoy lights. Also speed dial lights up.

Hi all I have mainly action man but have about 10 dragon or 21st century models, I have to that the two latter ones are of better quality and if action man had carried on as the original plan was then they may have been as good. Though I do like the ceremonial sets and the famous British carded sets, I also have a lot of kit that isn't even on display, this is sad as my models take up a lot of room. That said all my real kit does too and lots of that to put out alas no space so mr attic gets to enjoy instead.
