I thought this might be of interest to look at over a coffee or two... the level of skill and execution in the production of these 'super' 1/6th scale models is impressive. A level of detail way beyond the Marx Toys and Action Man / GI Joe I knew as a kid in the 60's.

I know there are some on this forum who work at this scale and you have my admiration and jealousy of good eyesight in equal measures!javascript:emoticon('Laughing')

It's interesting to read that one of the companies producing these had problems with their own factory selling counterfeit copies elsewhere. That's a recurring problem with producing a quality item - as some on this forum will know only too well.

Anyway, enjoy....

Best wishes to all for the forthcoming break, may it be a peaceful one leading to an enjoyable 2012.

Amazing job sculpting these tiny portrait pieces. The faces are beautifully sculpted as well as painted so realistically. I admire all kinds of sculpting and this certainly is a high degree of portrait rendering. Thanks, Phil, for the links, they were so fun to see!

Love, Light and Happy Holidays to all Very Happy

Very difficult to get all that detail on those tiny heads and hands! I noticed he had fabric for the rest of the body, so that helped to offset all the time it would have taken to sculpt that and makes these no doubt less expensive to sell.

Thanks for sharing the link!

Hi Phil,
this is a scale I have worked in for a while and after seeing them may just give it up! - not really - they were inspiring.
The glass eyes must be sooo tiny!
Thanks for sharing.
