    Does this count?
    It's one of those Micromodels from the 50-ties
    (The ruler is in centimeters)

    Thanks Guys! There are plans in the works to release them........ wait until you see Guido's versions............ go ahead and take your socks off NOW!

    Ray........... too late:grin: ......... I think I like the 1/96 scale: half scale for 1/48, a lot. Small enough for my hams I call hands, and still big enough to check out my re-coloring and since it fits three sheets to a page, save some on paper too! It ain't 1/144 but it's small enough for me. Maybe I can keep some of my models now. Like I said I've got two more tries on the 1/144:twisted:

    The Swiss used the Hunter way longer than anyone.......... I've found some really neat versions, some one of, that I'm working on. Glad y'all like the Winter Camo, I thought it was neat...........kinda reminiscent of the German Winter paint schemes.

    Billy,
    That's a great model! Which Micromodel is it? I wish they would reprint all of
    those.

    Trying to build the ME262.....model is about 4cm long

    I'm not sure how it will turn out, but I'll try to finish it....The engines are maybe to small for me to build, or my fingers are too big :)

    Billy,
    mmm...dilemma...I think you all know I LOVE Micromodels...and they are quite small...and yours is fantastic...but you built it the size intended...didn't scale it down...am I being critical and mean?

    Actually, it does fit in the palm of your hand...hmmm...what do you think friends?
    Great job Billy!!!

    Astroboy,
    ALL Micromodels are available as digital (scanned) copies. Try HERE

    josve,
    OUCH! That's what I call tiny! Keep it up!

    RE: does this count?, If you post it, it counts!

    @Billy...I love Micromodels too, and that's a very awesome build! Got more?

    @Johnny, way to go...that's really great! That's the FG design, no? They are particularly well suited for reduced builds because of the way they go together, I think...could be wrong, but they do show up often as a micro build from what I've seen. Do finish it, please, and send some more photos.

    Cheers!
    Jim

    Come get me Johnny, come get me! You look like a very worthy opponent and I would be proud to wrestle with you! I'd probably lose, but HELL, it would be fun! lol

    Of course Billy's model counts! Don't you all know when I'm joking yet?
    Here's a tip:
    99% of EVERYTHING I say, whether it sounds mean or not, is an attempt at humor.

    Love you guys!

    rickstef,
    That's the idea! Great job! Thanx.

    RE:Johnny,
    Any man who can catch a nine pound fish with his bare hands is a force to be reckoned with! Don't make him angry!:)

    Now, can we please focus on the tinies? You bunch of jokesters!

    Here's my entry. It's the Ravensblight vampire mask. I used FoxIt Reader to print it at 8.33%. In the first pic are both the full-sized mask and the tiny one. Second Pic: Mask next to a quarter. Third pic: Mask on a quarter, surrounded by various objects.

    I meant it still looks good after you scaled it down...i never had the intension to affend you. I'm sorry if I did.I was just joking..
    (its a BMF) wish I ever got one of those, but that kind of fish don'nt live in my surrounding .Sometimes I go fishing with my son, and all we catch is those 4 inch long white fish..... I live in one of the most overpopulated countries in the world, flat as a pancake, no mountains, no wild rivers, it's just envy...and a bad joke, sorry Johnny

    cheers, Billy
