About California Greg (GregCloseCombat)

My father was a model junkie of all scales, and he got me started when I was little (5 to 8 years old maybe?) doing some Monogram Snap-tite kits. Then at 8 years of age, I practiced the art of fireworks and BB gun marksmanship on those kits. When I was 25, he gave me his 1/48 unbuilt Bandai kits t...

Greg, I really havn't gone over to visit the 48th scale builds here on Armorama. I have already seen two of your builds (Ferdi) and really like the amount of detail and subjects available in this scale. I will have to give this scale a try after seeing how good both your builds have come out. If scale had not been mentioned it would be very difficult to distinghish your builds from the larger ones. You have done a very good job on this one! The Zimmerit is convincing and to scale. Nice job on the base and ground work . . . I like how the tank sits a little low on the base giving the tank a sense of weight on the ground. -Eddy

Hi Eddy, Go to Track48.com and visit the largest Gallery of 48th scale subjects out there. Also http://www.onefortyeight.com has a few pretty pics to browse. This scale will save on your shelf space and build times. Plenty of aftermarket and cross-over potential with railroad 'O' scale, aircraft, etc for dioramas. The scale has been growing the past 8 years and covers most subjects between plastic and resin kits. Armorama is a great site with lots of talent among all the scales. Thanks for your comments and checking this out, Greg
