Now you see why he was selected to play Bond. He was only a passable actor and he could barely speak English. He was chosen purely for his looks.



And yet Ian Fleming was so impressed with Connery in the role of Bond that he re-wrote the character in his later novels to make him half Scottish, half Swiss.  


Only after Connery received intensive lessons in elocution, deportment, and acting. Fleming initially thought he was an uncouth brute entirely unsuited for the role.


Interesting.  I did not know that. Still, whoever taught him must have done a good job as Connery as Bond is #3 on the American Film Institute list of movie heroes, behind Harrison Ford / Indiana Jones (#2) and Gregory Peck / Atticus Finch (#1)

Help needed with forum tech - Thu Jul 04, 2019 6:27 am

Ephiane wrote:Hey Friends,
just a Question to forum tech. What is the best way to post images ? I use host an image option. What option needs more time by opening, No limit or one of the limits ? Sure, more px need more time to open, but need it more time to to open a converted pic ?


I signed up for an account with Servimg and find using "Host an Image" to be the easiest way to do it. Check out post #2 here:

http://onesixthfigures.forumotion.com/t169-recommended-image-posting-procedure

You post three images at a time, once you post those first three, you don't have to post and re-edit your post. Once you "Insert" the first three images, you "Remove all", select the next three, "Send All", "Insert All", "Remove All" -- as many times as you like before you post your thread. It takes some time to get used to doing it that way, but in the end, I find it works the best rather than trying to use other Image hosting sites (since Servimg is the one forumotion uses).

I wouldn't think so as long She-Ra is worthy to lift Thor's hammer. As seen in Marvel vs. DC #2 (1996) Wonder Woman has lifted the
the Mjölnir.

Yep me too, well only just recently has Wonder Woman acquired the Mjölnir for a VIP (Jane Foster) she is really hoping that will be
joining her new team and she will need her hammer but in the meantime she was wondering if She-Ra could even lift the hammer.

I'm still hold out hope of finding DC's Big Barda, Marvel's She Hulk and a few others.

I hope to be posting some new photos soon.

Thanks again, GF. I reckon I wandered off in the weeds a little with the comment about my boys. Suffice it to say that they've turned out OK, thus far and I'm proud of them.

The color on this body turned out very well and the paint has held up except for the obvious spots where paint is going to get rubbed despite being careful when running. I've never been one to beat hell out of one of my builds. I'll leave that for someone who enjoys redoing their work over and over. I don't.



Stryker2011 wrote:Looking awesome. Lot of fine work, and funny story.


I really appreciate, Stryker. Oddly enough, looking back on it, I put damn near as much work into the photos and story as I did in the build.


Before moving on...I figured I'd make this installment a "two-fer." Both are short, so what the hell? Besides, I wanted to get the animation of the driver in this posting. Hope to get it wrapped here up by Christmas.



Installments XI and XII


Try though I did, I couldn't get that sorry bunch to help me with the following, so I had to go it alone.

The steering wheel was pretty "plain" looking. I contemplated making a new one, but scrapped that idea when I tried the following and really liked the way it looked.

I took some OD colored heavy nylon twine and simply wrapped it around the "business" part of the wheel. It was finished off with a light coat of superglue.

Here's the result:

Despite our boy's protests, I removed his head (not a simple "pop-off-and-on" type. I cut a plate from his back using my trusty Dremel.

From there, I could access the slotted tabs that held the head on. With his head off, I ground out the tabs, thereby making space for a microservo. In the above photo, you can see how I altered his neck post to fit a circular servo horn.

Below, you can see how the servo fits in the chest cavity. It's not pretty, but I used hot-melt glue because of it's quick drying properties and the fact that I had to get the servo in the correct place in one shot. The glue gave me a little wiggle room, but didn't take two hours to set up.

The hole in the middle of the horn is what attaches it to the servo and it's splined to mate with the splines on the servo shaft. I was hoping for a friction fit and it worked. Still, his head comes off pretty easily, so I might be forced to make further alterations (i.e. put a screw in to hold the horn to the shaft. Very easy operation).

My apologies for the sloppy looking work, but it's going to be covered up by clothing anyway, so what the hell...

Installment IX

As earlier alluded to, this is a rebuild on an old thread. The sons referred to below have grown up nicely in the ensuing years ... for which I'm truly thankful.

The part about going to an official school visit was true, however, and it did make a nice segue into the question, "why do all the photos look like they were shot in hotel room?" They were. Had many hours to kill on those visits.



Good afternoon, all.

Been rather busy with son #2's baseball season (part of it...), but I made time for an update. Sorry it's been so long coming.

Recently I had occasion to take son #1 to an official college visit. He's a swimmer and the coaches will bring prospective students in for a weekend here and there. On this occasion, we went to East Carolina University in North Carolina. Since I knew I'd be stuck in a hotel room for a couple of days with very little to do (the coaches don't really want the parents around after about the first two hours), I took the project with me to work on. Of course, I had to deal with stowaways...

It took them a while to acclimate (an acceptable amount of bitching and moaning), but we soon got to work.

I had an el cheapo radio system sitting on the work bench, so I took it along. Instead of sitting still the whole time, I found occasion to search out a hobby shop for a few things and a Radio Shack for a battery.

On the platform there, the motor and transmission are already screwed into place. The main shaft going to the transfer case is also visable. All that will be under the hood once the body is mounted.

And, test it I did. Truthfully, it was geared really slowly...too slowly in fact. That was about the time I decided to upgrade to LiPo batties so I could run one with 11.0V and conserve space. Still, the tests went well. There was torque to all be damned. The bare chassis would crawl up a curb with no trouble at all. I did considerable driving through the hotel flower garden as that was the most challenging terrain available.

I was actually beginning to have a pretty good time until the powered chassis went dead. The motor would still spin, but there was no movement.

So, I picked up the chassis and went back to the room. I got there just in time to witness this:

I'd needed an extra long section of drive shaft to bridge the distance between the transmission and transfer case. So, I put two Axial axles together with some brass tubing inside the plastic shaft and epoxied it all together. I reckon I discounted the amount of torque being sent to the transfer case. That was a mistake. It spun in two within 10 minutes with far less weight than the finished vehicle should have.

I've since replaced that shaft with a custom-made one in steel. It won't break again.

Stay tuned.

Moonbase Alpha Male wrote:Yeah, sorry. Yes it is. Because Reverend Spooky is totally The Man on 1/6 music subjects, and the Radio Kings rock, I wanted to give him a complete answer with a better pic of the Running Press compared side by side to a couple of other 1/6 turntables I have, that I'm trying to find in my stuff. Reverend, if that delay made it seem I was ignoring your straight-forward question, I apologize.



Turn, Turn, Turn… (A Tale of 3 Turntables + 1)

Topics tagged under 2 on OneSixthFigures 40678728065_8d73c1dd7c_c

#1 Reverend Spooky was inquiring about the Running Press Table, though he may have already got one by now. Anyway for general interest here’s a better pic. $12.95 US. It comes with 3 LPs and each one plays a different 30 seconds of music, which doesn’t mean much to me for picture-taking purposes. I erroneously assumed they would actually spin (which would show as a nice blur in a pic) but they don’t. I think the turntable itself works in scale but the actual records look too big in the figure’s hand.

#2 From the World’s Smallest” Series, @$8 US. Unquestionably it is too small. Otherwise it would be just perfect. Nicely detailed. The record spins, a “strobelight” lights up. I am trying to remember if anybody ever made a record player, for kids maybe, that was smaller and played 45 rpms only. If so this could be a 1/6 version of that. It spins fast enough for 45 rpm.

#3 Rolling Stones Portable Record Player ornament. I have this but I can’t find it. Fun! It spins, plays Gimme Shelter. I was torn about converting it from a Rolling Stones promo item to a more generic portable record player. SO I made a plain cardboard insert for the lid, and put white tape on the front. Now I can have it both ways – or I could, if I could just find it. I believe they made similar ornaments for Elvis Presley, maybe others.

#4 This is one that I don’t have, I wish I did. It was a Hallmark Christmas Ornament in 2016 but it was sold out everywhere before Christmas, so I couldn’t find one when I got my general run of Ornaments for 1/6 on Boxing Day that year. Like the Running Press it detects different “records,” these being Christmas-sy. Scale seems good but I haven't had one in hand.

ReverendSpooky wrote:Damn MBAM, thanks for posting these! I did order the running press one, and it came in yesterday. And I completely agree with your assessment, that it's perfect looking in scale, even if the records look oversized. I tried it with one of my records, and it looks so good. I'm definitely going to do a dark brown wash on the base to get the wood grain to pop. The center spindle is a little big to fit my records, so I may either drill my records out a touch, or replace it with a thinner metal rod. The platter is bigger than the record, but that's not really uncommon. I may replace it with something smaller, but I really could leave as is. Over all, it's EXACTLY what I wanted when I made my own, and I'm so happy with it. Really appreciate the heads up on it.

The world's smallest really does look great, and I do remember there being those kids players for 45s back in the day. That Rolling Stones one is super cool too! Give Me Shelter may be my favorite Stones song , so bonus! I know you can't find it now, but do you remember, size wise, how it scaled against the rest? It is quite cool.

The Christmas one is delightfully retro, although the reindeer on the front does kinda detract from it's uses. I remember someone on OSW mentioning a few years ago Hallmark doing an ornament (I think for Downtown Abbey) of a phonograph, but I never found in store. If it's the one I found googling just now, it might not have been to scale anyway.

Oh man, don't get me started on phonographs now. The Downton Abbey ornament one works well. It may be very marginally underscale but phonographs weren't all a standard size, and it probably helps that phonographs are more remote to us than record players, historical, never a part of our day to day experience. Oh gosh, depressing thought, that's probably how "kids nowadays" relate to the record players. The most common phonograph for 1/6 would be from the "brass pencil sharpeners" series, and isn't bad. The horn looks credible so that phonograph only looks small if you look closely at the record area. There is also a phonograph made by ReMent or one of those "gashapon foods" companies, but that one is definitely too small.

I remember the Stones portable record player being perfect -- slightly less wide than the Running Press but a bit taller, and of course the lid is permanently up. I always take a "scale demo pic" of incoming items so I don't know why I didn't. It will turn up for sure -- one of these days I'll be in my basement and move Jimmy Hoffa's body and there it will be.

While we're on the subject, you'll probably appreciate this ornament. I also have a whole series of mini juke boxes, but they're too small to use (I have a couple of full size 1/6 ones too). This Hallmark ornament works perfectly because it's just the right size to be on a Diner tabletop.

Sorry, you're right of course. Should I delete anything? Technically some of the instruments, mike stands etc shown in the last pic are Barbie items. The pianos were made for doll use, and part of the drums was (ugh) from a Justin Bieber doll set.

No, no, it's fine. I would never ask anyone to delete something (or delete it myself) unless it is truly inappropriate -- I do make suggestions sometimes but even that seems to hurt people's feelings (different instance, not this). It's just we have to be fair overall. But also in fairness, you were following up on ReverendSpooky's question. Besides, this includes Barbie items as you pointed out (I thought I recognized one or two). If it wasn't for the context, this could have been moved into the appropriate thread, but it's fine as it is.

The figures are all versions of Captain Action, Doctor Evil. One is my actual childhood one from 1967. A couple of the others are from the 1998 Playing Mantis version and the rest are from the 2011 version. Obviously it's a Collage so I don't have that crazy many.

Call this a Teaser from my eventual music-themed Post. I've actually done a little booklet about the 50 year career that these guys have had in the music industry, as the Evil Band. They're a little like KISS, a little like the Dead, and little bit like Forrest Gump because they've been everywhere and met everybody.


Moonbase Alpha Male wrote:OK, here's a full on Teaser for this project -- Front Cover, Back Cover and some concert photos. Fully belonging in this thread because the set up is the Hannah Montana doll's Concert Stage (actually two of them combined). There's quite a lot of Barbie stuff in the overall project.

Also, just ordered that Hallmark tabletop Jukebox on EBay. 100% needed one for St Crow's Loft, although the prospect of doing a Fallout style 50's diner is quite appealing...

You will love it. It lights up, it plays music (which doesn't matter for photo purposes I guess) and it has movement in that the "pages" actually flip. In fact you can actually select different music by pressing the letter codes at the front. Awesomeness squared. I hope I didn't lead you to spend too much but I think you will find it worthwhile. Look forward to seeing it turn up in something.

Thanks for the comments on the Teaser for the Dr Evil Band. I'm most grateful you mentioned the Clash reference because the project contains dozens of music and pop culture references, some obvious and some very well hidden, so I hope people will find that amusing. There's a lot of narrative hidden or implied in the pics. You may tell from the back cover that I started this concept back in 2014 (at Christmas) so it's been a long time coming. The problem for me is that I still haven't done a couple of fairly complex photoshoots for it (like "the Evil play the Egyptian Pyramids '78" and "the Evil go to Sturgis") and unfortunately because the whole thing is laid out like a booklet, the incomplete gaps will be obvious. I have decided now however to just put it out there even with a few gaps -- partly because I figure here in OSF, "we're among friends," and people should be ok with that as a work in progress. May I say, I am nowhere comparing myself to your excellence but it was your Radio Kings repost that made me want to get this out there (along with the fact I showed off my pic with all the instruments, and the ball rolled from there).

$17 with shipping, which is a straight up steal. It was a drop everything and go buy it now kinda purchase when you showed it. Man, your collection of 1/6 pieces that weren't intended for 1/6 is awe inspiring. Be careful, I may start asking you weird "was something like this ever made in 1/6" kinda questions.

I'm so glad you did end up posting the work in progress shots! The whole project is so fun. The alien looking band is such a trip, and the fact that they have this really retro look already lends itself so well to the classic rock feel. And I'm not sure if the white flowing shirt was from the original Doctor Evil, but its somehow a perfect fit for both 60's rock guitarist or 60's super villian, which kinda cracks me up for a lot of reasons. I'm really looking forward to seeing it as a whole, when it is finished, because it's a really cool project.

What is the 1st photo in reference to (I bet Dadrab would have seen it immediately)? I feel like with the pose, and that specific photo effect, it's on the tip of my tongue.

Chapter One is up now, I'm dying for your comments. You are never going to believe what that white flowing shirt is. That's an actual Seinfeld "Puffy Shirt"! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qWFSBqAxR4 It originally came with the DVD set of that particular season of Seinfeld. It fits 1/6 OK, though it doesn't close at the back. Pic #1 isn't specifically anyone (unless unconsciously) but it's meant to be in the spirit of "Crawdaddy" magazine, which was Rolling Stone's poorer freakier cousin in the day.

Any questions you may have about out-of-left-field potential 1/6 items, I'll be glad to answer if I know. In case it should be something you don't want to reveal in advance to readers of Radio Kings or whatever, feel free to PM me, or I can give you my real world email.
