Military Miniatures: Guide to Military Scale Modeling
Do you remember the time when you put the finishing touches to your very first military scale model fighter jet or World War II tank? Was it an F-86F-30 Sabre or a WWII German King Tiger Tank or a Mirage IIIr Fighter? Most likely, you will still remember the exact model, and it’s not surprising that you still have it, somewhere around the house, after all these years. The world of military miniatures is truly captivating and there are so many different models. This is why many military scale modeling enthusiasts specialize in a particular subfield like country, time period, war or type of model. In terms of wars, there are many models of battleships, aircrafts, armor, and other military units from World War II but some people may prefer models from World War I, Vietnam War, Iraq War, and so on. Some enthusiasts may be more intrigued by types of models so they will specialize in military aircrafts, ships, tanks or artillery. Yet, there are also people who are more interested in the military scale modeling of a specific country or countries so they will only look for military miniatures from Great Britain, the United States, Germany, Japanese, USSR, and so on.
