• Pardon the dust while the boys rebuild the site.

    The board will be in a state of disarray as I get things sorted out, for a little while at least.

    The new incarnation is using Xenforo as the system software. It is much like what we are used to, with a few differences. I will see about making a FAQ to help point out the differences for the members.


    One IMPORTANT difference for all of us old timers is that the 'mail' system is replaced with what are called 'conversations'/

    There is no 'Inbox' or 'Out box' or 'Sent' folders anymore.

    Think of Conversations as private 'threads' or topics that don't exist in a forum, that you start with another member. NOTE: Conversations can include more than one member if you or someone else in the conversaion, likes.
    Takes a little getting used to but I am sure you all can get a hang of it.


    Only a slightly modified default default Xenforo style is available for now. Once the new SAG style is ready it will be available.

    All existing users should be able to login with their usernames and passwords once the site goes up.


    If anyone has difficulties logging in please contact me at sixthvanguard@gmail.com.


    Thank you for your support and patience. I know it has been a loooong road.

The 1:6 scale US M10 tank destroyer


Sorted out the heavy equipment made in the last year, first released 1; 6 scale US Army M10 tank destroyer. From the modeling phase, it takes about 2 months, with a lot of time spent waiting for the parts to be mailed. This time, the M10 still had the full internal structure, using the Dragon's Sherman tank chassis as the basis for the modification work. But the entire top half of the car is completely homemade. The result looks pretty good:D:D:D

Who made the engine? I couldn't find one when I built my Sherman a couple years ago, so I used a Ford cammer, at least it fills the engine compartment!
As usual a wonderful project!
