    WOW! You did an amzing job on the rifle and helmet especially!!!! Im very impressed at how you got the bolt and other parts to move/etc. The rifle stock itself looks incredible, as does the realistic helmet. You certainly have some talent Ralph, and well worth the time investment IMO!
    Thanks Bill!
    Like I said, it took me almost two years to create this.

    Jeez Ralph! Gobsmacked doesn't even come close! I was always in awe of your talent for making your knives in miniature but to make a working scale model not just of the bayonet but of the rifle too is simply astounding. Total respect to you for your talent and the tribute your gift has created.

    I still stick my fingers together sometimes as well. I do not have small hands. Whenever my friend and I are together and I am showing one of my items, he always comments, "and look at the size of his fingers!"
    Happy 40th again,
    Ralph.

    Jesus, that rifle is incredible. You put so much effort into it and it really shows.

    I half expected the thing to fire little .5mm rounds!

    Ralph, your attention to detail is incredible, but even more incredible is your ability to work in miniature, The film industry is always looking for people who can make miniatures, you would be assured of a job just by showing them your projects, cant wait for the next one

    Unfortnately, there is no firing pin. Just too small, the bolt itself is 1/16" diameter.

    If it were a job, I doubt I would enjoy it as much.
