6mm-Minis is Maksim-Smelchak's blog to discuss gaming, miniatures, books, movies, food, Israel, Judaism, life in general and other funny crud. My favorite scale of miniatures is 6mm, which is also called 1/285 or 1/300 scale. I enjoy many different kinds of games including ancients, Napoleonics, WWI, WWII, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Car Wars AKA Autoduel (a sort of crash'n'derby automobile combat game), 6mm Godzilla AKA Kaiju games, and science fiction games. I'm open to everything though!

COOL STUFF: "Eject, Luke, Eject! ...or was that Porkins?"


Hi All,

Star Wars... still giving geeks reasons to be stupid after thirty years! Got a spare five grand? Let's build an X-wing rocket replica complete with a swiveling R2D2 head! Awesome, dude! I mean... like, what could go wrong?

And the below video is a short thirty-second fast and slow version of the launch... I love the Chipmunk-like voices when they speed up the video.

And it wouldn't be a Maksim-Smelchak post if I didn't share a few links...

Have a great Thursday!

    Hi Patrick,

    Thanks for writing!

    If you think Star Wars fans are threatening, wait until you see what the disgruntled Star Trek fans are planning...

    Galaxy Quest wasn't enough of a kudo for them... LOL ;o)
