1/72nd sculpted by Frank Ziegler


Ps..I know they arent plastic but it seems the done Thing to post such 1/72nd figs here.

Beautiful! Good proportions and natural poses! I would have liked them in 28mm.

De-linked from the Plastic figures board??
Loads and loads of metal figs get bunged up on the Plastic figures board under the pretext (sorry, the Posters ignorance) that they are plastic but are plainly not
For example

etc;…and this one is of particular interest…

Obviously I should have not been honest in my declaring them as "arenīt plastic" and Played the ignorance Card instead but seeing as a lot of obviously metal figs get put in the Plastic figure section I thought it as "the done Thing". I apologise for my honesty.
Odd though as Even when sets in the plastic figures section get flagged up as being metal..they remain.
Next time Iīll Keep my mouth shut and claim ignorance.

I am wondering where there is a problem. We usually mix plastics and metals. The scale counts, not the material.

Maybe it is different with collectors who don't paint their figures?

I agree Uwe.
A lot of 1/72nd metal stuff gets placed in the plastic Forum, why?
Because most of the Posts there are plastic 1/72nd and 1/72nd metals are compatible with 1/72nd Plastics and resin figs*
As Thereīs no board for 1/72nd, either made from plastic, metal, cheese or whatever then People, particularily those who havenīt a clue as to what material the fig is made from, will continue to post them there.
Solution? No Need for a board specifically for 1/72nd or any other scale, just Set up a Metal Figures board ?

Seeing as resin is always allowed in the plastic section and the above sculpts are infact resin, Iīll Keep my mouth firmly shut in future ;-)

If the titel of the board is plastic, then The resin ones, IMHO..being strictly not plastic, shouldnīt be shown there either if metal ones arenīt….but that would just be being pedantic
