RPM Tech 1:6 Neger
« on: March 21, 2011, 12:50:47 pm »

For those interested in large scale unique subjects, Rick Palumbo is getting closer to finishing his 1:6 Neger kit.   :-))

I've attached a few examples of this week's work but you can see much more on his build thread via the link below:

Here are a few more photos from this week's work.  

Check out the size comparison between the Neger & Rick's 1:32 Marder pool toy.   Yes, the cockpit dome is removable so you can have a 12" figure manning the helm.

You'll find more info & photos on Rick's build thread over at Caswell.

Rick does some really nice kits, and thinks a little outside the box. His little Seehund kit would make a great model to get back into this hobby, is a nice little 'tuck-under-the-arm' size and is very agile.

Here are a few photos of the Rick's latest work along with several references to give one a better appreciation of what he's doing to replicate the Neger.   :-))
