Christmas presents 2010 - 1/6th scale !

Article about: The 30cal is well on its way. Should be finished soon. The little brass parts are a nice touch. I suppose they couldn't make the plastic that thin for these brackets Steve T

    Looks great so far. I never attempted to build the 1/6 weapons. Maybe I will start after seeing your work. Thanks.

    The 30 cal is finished.

    I have given the ammo tins a bit of a 'worn' look. This is a cracking model and I love how it's come out The detailing on the ammo tins is very good, and I love the way they have used metal for the brackets. Works a treat.

    Steve,
    Your work is amazing, these are fantastic models I love the weathering and wear you created on the ammo tins.

    Last one......

    MG15 on 'aerial' tripod. I've had to use fishing wire to hold the tripod legs in place and to hold the gun at the level I have it..........without the fishing wire the model splays out on the floor

    Anyway, I weathered the tripod to give it that 'used' look but left the weapon as is. They would have kept that clean.

    I love the mags and spent ages getting the fake leather handle just right

    Enjoy

    So now I had to find somewhere safe to keep them. My old location of 'on top of the bookcase' just wasn't big enough so I managed to get hold of a nice old display cabinet and use that. I've not quite finished with the grass effect, but it gives you an idea of what the final display will look like.

    This cabinet also gives me plenty of space to expand the 1/6th collection

    That looks great Steve easily museum quality, nice to see German weapons to one side facing the Allies. I'm looking forward to your next 1/6th kit because Ive enjoyed the builds and this thread.
