The Little Black Book - Online resources

Post by Stephen White »

By popular demand (from at least two members), I've started a new Knowledge Base Topic with useful online links. The purpose is to curate links which we think will help the Armortek global community with researching, building and operating your models. The aim is for it to be international and a living document. Please contribute any links which you've found useful and also help us keep it relevant by letting us know about any links which are now defunct. If you have a new link, please use this thread to let us know and we'll update this Topic accordingly.

We're looking for :

Clubs (ones that run 1:6)
Museums/ Permanent Exhibitions
Modelling supplies
Modelling forums/ resources
Reference material sites

The "One Sixth UK" forum is currently defunct, though I think Pete has mentioned he might be resurrecting/archiving it.

The "Sixth Army Group" forum also has a section for vehicles, so is not entirely for figures.

I've find Oddball759mm/John/ECA YouTube channel very inspiring and informative. His series of Armortek builds was strongly the reson for my initial purchase of a Tiger1 from Armortek.
