1 What's your favorite 1/6 prop or accessory? on Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:05 am

The excellent Ford engine prop that Shazzdan posted got me thinking.
What is your favorite prop or accessory?
It could be a weapon or gear, commercial or homemade, that really "nails" it in terms of believability.

One of my favorites is this Bosch hammer drill. The drill/hammer knob rotates, the labels are legible, color is correct. I think overall it is an excellent prop. I can even put an actual drill bit in it!



While I admit to some personal bias, my very first homemade prop is one of my favorites as well. I think "unfinished wall" captures the look just right...

So let's see some shots of your favorite 1/6 items.
I know many of you have made some pretty sweet props!

I like your drill and the whole construction scene, but it is hard to pick just one favorite 1/6 prop or accessory.

If I had that drill, it would be my favourite too.

I laid off commenting for a day because I couldn't think of my favourite prop but have finally decided that it is the briefcase that Ponti has in the above photo. The detailing and scaling is perfect and they are so versatile that you can use one in pretty much any modern-themed dio.

This thread shows some of the things I've been doing with them.

Mine is probably the ‘working’ TV and selection of games/dvds I made to go with the official PS4 keychain model which is perfectly 1/6th scale. I made the screen with an opening on the side so images can be slotted in to change the picture. I use my own screenshots. (of which I have MANY, lol) The controllers were from a seller on Shapeways (I painted them though)

Hello...I really like the unfinished wall that you had maded. the little print on the insulation was done by you? you did good job. takes much skill to do that. others here have such skill also...hope to learn from all. my best prop for me is a torturing type device i'm working on...i hopes to post pics when it done...

View user profile
hmm...this is one tough question. for me it would probably be the coca cola food/bottles from bbi that i have used on occasion, or the HT mirrored aviators from the marty mcfly figure.

That’s all I can think of right off the bat.

Ugh, Pontiacivan that drill is so slick!  You are a bad influence.  I will admit, you sold me on it and i just grabbed one on Ebay.  Coming from China, so may not arrive until January, but still, I'm excited.  That construction wall looks in-freakin-credible!  It's such a versatile prop, and it looks SO spot on realistic.  I love it.  Also worth mentioning, jealous you've got one of those snap on toolboxes.  They rock.

Shazzdan, you've been killing it with the metal briefcases!  So cool.

Lynkhart, so rad seeing your gaming set up again!  Can't get over how perfect all the game and dvd cases look, and the tv with interchangeable screens is brilliant.  I seriously love it.  

Scrotus89, I am more than a bit curious about your torture device.  Bring it on!

GubernatorFan is right, and I can't imagine picking a favorite.  But here are a couple I'm particularly happy with how they came out:

Cursed Skull Chamber:



Ouija boards with planchettes:



And a hand of glory (That Ephaine spotted in the Alice of Autumn photos)



And yes, I think that was a £2 coin I was using as the base of the bell jar, that I've since swapped it out for a legitimate wood base.

Need to do some new photoshoots with all of these soon.

The details are gorgeous, Adam! It is difficult enough to get details right in the first place, but yours also look positively organic.

I love the business card briefcase, I managed to get two or three VERY cheap and they are the nicest little prop!

Thank you! Yes, I laid out the lettering and printed on an 8.5"X11" sheet of brown paper, then I cut it into strips. I dyed the cotton for the "insulation" and made the "staples" as well. The outlet boxes are LEGO pieces.
You absolutely need to post your torture device progress!

Thanks Pontiacivan!  They were really fun to do.  And yeah, I have a weird love/hate relationship with 3A.  I LOVE a lot of their designs, and there are a few figures that would still be fun to have, but for the most part, I have all I really want from them.  But they also drive me crazy with a lot of things.  I don't think they've released anything in a long time I was that excited about.  Back in December, I dropped the $200 for the club membership with the promise that this year would be a big return to all their original IPs, that would only be available to club members.  I think they did a robot or 2, but no Tomorrow Kings, no Popbot.  Almost a year later, and they haven't done almost anything.  Huge waste, and kinda left a bad taste in my mouth.  At least the membership kit is finally shipping.

That Bramble is super cool though, and you're right, freakin huge.  Such a fun figure.

Actually, he DID finish a storyline. It goes like this: Make cool product, make people jump thru hoops to get product, laugh at hoop jumpers, collect money, go to bank. Realize bank account is substantial, don't need money so bad so let's test peoples patience, make cool product, take money and go to bank, delay sending product. Look at bank statement.

The sequel to that storyline is very similar...lol

Damn those unfinished walls with the insulation foam are insanely coooooool!!!

And that playstation set, I love it, high level of awesomness!!!

Personally I got tons of lil items and props, it's really hard to pick only one favorite...

The most "functional" and useful in my collection is the leather sofa and armchiar set I bought a few years back. It's not terrific in terms of details, but it's well crafted, the leather grain and stitching is realistic, and it's a prop that definitely creates a diorama by itself!



In terms of details, I can only remember the old pocket watch I grabbed from a DID german agent figure, it's made of metal, it opens and closes nicely, the chain is perfectly scaled, a lil jewel!

That scene with the couch always gets me! It is certainly a top notch prop.
The pocket watch is exactly what I was talking about, though. It's not a giant over the top prop, it's an item tha just "nails" it's intended look. It's a great find!

more fantastic pictures and scenes. Blackpool, Your Heros at ease are absolut Great. I can spend Hours by watch them. So many details and the magic effects i love so much. very tricky to let her read teh book by her magic. There are little ice cubes in the whiskey glasses. Shocked fantastic. Rorschachs watch is amazing. A good think that You can get only parts from the figures, not the complete figure . If that was my genre, i will buy millions of little 1:6 accessoires every day Laughing

Beyond ridiculous. I love it so much. I'd add a cheap LED to the back of the TV so the screenshot illuminates in the dark. Is this a self diorama? Did you get your facesculpt made by that website?

View user profile
lol, I hadn’t thought of that! The screens are on card though so I don’t think a light would do very much. Good idea if I make another one though...
I made the diorama, yes! The doll isn’t a mini-me, though, that’s Max. :3 If you search for Max and Juno on here you’ll find some better pictures.

If you print it on regular paper and put a tiny LED behind it from Evan Designs (could cost like $5) it will look epic at night.

I just bought a 10" digital photo frame and am going to try turning it into a 1:6 scale 60" TV. It has a media player so I'll be able to play videos on it, not just still photos.

The main trick was to find one with a 16:9 screen ratio and a bezel that was skinny enough. I finally found one that should be ok. It has a frame that is around 1 cm thick so it is no good for the latest TVs but I think I can replicate the look of an older plasma with it.

I still have a bunch of old iphones around, and eventually plan to try to use 1 for a tv. There's also a really cheap old tablet that i ended up with at some point I want to try out as a tv. A friend gave me 1 of those picture frames too, but I need to put it back together (no idea why he took it apart). But agreed it might work well as an old tube tv.

Build a cabinet around it and turn it into a rear-projection TV.
