Just bumbled onto this site today:

While 15mm isn't really my scale…I was impressed by what you get for the money. $5 USD a tank. Buy 10 get one free. You can also buy miscasts to use as wrecks. It's mostly WW2 but there are post war vehicles as well. I am pondering what to get to do some kitbashing. There's also a selection of WW2-Punk-ish tanks that should work for All Quiet on the Martian Front.

One used to be able to buy Battlefront tanks for $5 USD a pop that was before FOW of course.

Just noticed that they come with a basic coat of paint for this price. An even better deal!

They are pretty nice and a good value. I have had some issues though with gun barrels breaking.

The resin barrels will break and the basic paint is not really good but makes a great base coat. When I did 15mm I bought lots of these and one BIG advantage is the light weight.

Guns, Landing Craft/Tractors, and some scenery stuff too. I've gotten boxes of his stuff on several occasions. Easy to work with and quick as well.

I very happy with his stuff. Two broken gun barrels out of 50 models, I put on a brass rod of the same diameter and all good. The models are good for gaming. The base coat is best used as a primer coat, but that means they come primed for you. Repeat customer.

I'm a fan. Multiple purchases, whilst visiting the US, and from home in Australia. Very accommodating, and good value!

Nothing ever broken in transit, at either destination.

Quality of the castings has steadily improved. Was my go to when I needed Italian Dovunque 35 trucks with empty cargo bed (the canvas cover comes off). His DFS-230 German gliders are REALLY nice. Makes a lot of items no one else does or which are too pricey.

I just have him paint my items flat black which makes and excellent base coat.

Some of the trucks look very useful. I am looking at the GMC 1.5 .A truck not often found in other ranges.

I have always found him easy to deal with and a great guy in general. His prices are great and the value is some of the best in the industry.

The vehicles paint up well too. They are not highly detailed models, but have enough to detail to look quite good with some paint. I painted around 60 variations of German vehicles for a friend years ago and I was impressed by how good they look once finished.

They do paint up very well!
