    I'm playing around with enlarging some of mine to 1:6 scale.

    not many build THAT large, but some do. you will likely have the best luck enlarging something detailed and 1/25 or larger. there have been some amazingly detailed builds here in the armor section. worth checking out even with a slow etherlink. anybody have some recommendations? something we might not have seen built here before?

    Hi, I hope you're still watching this thread. I started enlarging a Tiger I to 1/6 about a month ago. Very little info or responses to any of my requests, anywhere. I am documenting everything I do to a 2d computer program and am able to plot 1/6 plans of each part (perfect drawings vs fuzzy printer results) I do. I've managed to get a lower hull, cut and pinned together, many parts of suspension drawn and some of turret already. I havve intention to build from multi-media - Foamboard, insulating styrofoam, sheet styrene, etc. If you get this message, contact me at info@ezmasks.com; would love to hear about your efforts.

    How about posting some pictures of your progress here for the rest of us to see?

    I have now input the complete model ( over 765 individual pieces) to 1/6 scale. Am now updating drawings with construction symbols and will begin more construction ! Have about eight missing pieces and about the same, drawn but not identified. Hopefully these will show up during construction,
