1 Miniature briefcases on Thu 2 Aug 2018 - 10:15

These business card holders shaped like briefcases are available all over the place. They make an ideal 1:6 metal briefcase.



If you buy them as a business card holder, they can be found for less than $4.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Men-Women-Business-ID-Credit-Card-Holder-Mini-Suitcase-Bank-Card-Holder-Box-Case/192370679338

1:6 sellers are trying to scam people by charging $12-$15 for the same thing.

These things are so versatile that every 1:6 hobbyist should get some. This thread is to collect ideas on how to use them and to showcase your figures' briefcases.

Here are some of mine.

Mini Nuke

These really are super cool, and a great 1/6 resource. I love that people are jacking up the price reselling, but you can just get them for their intended purpose for so much less. Appreciate the heads up on that. And I love all the ways you've used them, especially the explosives.

These are very cool and thanks for all the links. I suppose that could have gone into the "useful items" thread.

I thought of that but didn't want to clutter it up with all of these pics of the same thing. They are so versatile that they deserve a thread of their own.

great suggestions for uses, I am thinking of suitcase gun mod, not sure how to do it though

The trick is to find a gun that is both the right size and can be disassembled into several parts. Perhaps one of the 1:6 carbines made by 4D might work.

I had thought of that, but still not sure about the case trigger mechanism though, will work it out one day

Here is one made for a CIA operative. It is a full-auto, drum-fed .22 with a suppressor and laser sight. I saw one of these in action a couple of decades ago. The rate of fire was so fast that it turned a concrete wall into powder but the recoil was minimal.

That’s pretty cool. You have to try to recreate that, jaz. That would be awesome.

I never meant to imply that I made that. It is a photo of a genuine 1:1 weapon that was made in, IIRC, the late 1980s. I was hoping that jaz could use it as inspiration for a 1:6 model.

I love miniature briefcases! I have two or three myself, great for spy gear as you have shown. I also have the 21st Century Toys briefcase with weapon. I should try to find it later and post it.
