1/6000 scale modern naval mini's


Recommended Posts

check out this link for what you should do with your helos

Pretty cool Dewayne, but these guys are 1/6000 while I believe the helos on the link are either 15-28mm. No I'm not exactly sure what 1/6000 is in "mm", but they are definitely much smaller than my 1:285 helos, which equate to 6mm. Not sure if they make a motor/engine so these tiny birds.


Thanks though


What do you think of my rotor creation?

Those VLCC's look like great torpedo fodder. ;)

And the photos do not do them justice, particualarly the VLCC's - blame the cameraman, not the camera.


here's a tangent: Brad, are you familiar with the term "dope" in relation to the individual sight picture/windage adjustments made on a rifle to get to some consistent "battle sight zero"? The saying goes "it's not the dope on the weapon, but the dope behind it". Same-Same with me on that camera - a pink A-6! :D go figure.


Now back to 1/6000 minis.

Natural sunlight with these most recent, most came out ok. I like the shadows under the F/A-18's. Open to suggestions on a color for these cockpit glass - keeping in mind that these are 1/6000. I think it would add something.

6x Kilo SS and 3x Victor I SSN's yesterday. More FSU/Soviet to follow. Subs are pretty tiny, not taking anything away from the LCAC's though.


Will try to get a photo up in a day or two, although black on deep sea blue does not give much contrast. My pressing need for a sub was my gaming which I had everything represented in mini except for the cardboard counter for the kilo.


Finally, what I initially thought were Spruance CG's, but later determined that Spruances were DD's, now turns out that the model is Bunker Hill CG (developed from the Ticonderoga). I reviewed my packing list which confirmed to me that they are my Bunker Hill's? :D

Enter the Russians.


Last night paintings included 5x Sovremenny DDG's, 3x Neustrashimy FF, 2x Udaloy II DDG, and 1x Tu-95 Bear-D.


The beauty of this batch, particularly the Sovremenny, is that many OPFORs can be depicted - Russia, China, and hey at 1/6000 it can even by mistaken for an Indian Type 15 Dehli Class destroyer. Pics of these, and the subs from a while back, hopefully to be taken, transferred, and posted this weekend.
