Mini Lathe - Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:17 pm

I was given a Proxxon DB250 Mini Lathe for Christmas. I have never done any wood turning before so I spent a few weeks turning fat sticks into skinny ones to get the hang of it.

It isn't very expensive, it takes up little bench space, it is very quiet for a power tool, and it is very therapeutic.


After getting comfortable with the tools I tried making some baseball bats to get the hang of some basic techniques.

A few pics of my 1/6 Wolverine Weapon X helmet with led lighting. Thought I’d be farther along on the rest of the figure this past weekend, but was excited how this came out and wanted to share.

UPDATED 04/08/2018

So, I thought this would be a quick easy project.  Make a quick Weapon X  helmet, a couple mechanical bits, a few wires, throw them on a naked Wolverine.  Get a few cool photos.  Done and done.  

These things never work out that way though.  Ended up going deep into every piece, getting pretty elaborate on the leather straps, and adding an LED to the helmet.  Just finished up today, and I'm thrilled with the results.  

I want to do a big photoshoot, elaborate background, maybe a bit of action, and definitely plan to get some pics next time it snows.  But I was so excited to have finished today, I couldn't resist getting some photos.

And while I was at it, I couldn't resist doing some super stylized shots.

A quick note, but I didn't have any kind of background that would work, so I threw together a faux concrete wall in under an hour.  Textured it up with a big rock I found under my porch, painted it concrete grey, then a big wash of grimey black.  Kept blasting it with the hairdryer so I didn't have to slow down, and could get these pics while there was still some sun.  Really happy with how it came out, and it's a great start on a versatile military base/lab kinda diorama background I have planned.  Such a productive day!

Terminator 2 figures and gear - Mon Apr 02, 2018 12:36 am

This is a sort of revisiting or retake of my first OSW post, with better lighting and photos, and more accessories, namely the new Connor/Resistance Leader by CGL. Oh, and more dust, I think, which is either good or bad... Smile

Hope you like it.

Space Marine - Sat Mar 31, 2018 1:43 pm

For anyone who hasn't already seen him, this is my first Space Marine. He is one of seven. His unit is known as the Grappling Cephalopods
I also included a sneak peak of their support robot, S.P.L.O.T.C.H
Suppression Protected Logistical Operations / Tactical Communications Hub
S.P.L.O.T.C.H. Has a HUGE E.M. Signature but he carries all the latest jamming and communications gear.
He is intended to have M134s for arms and a pair of back mounted missiles, as well as chaff and flare launchers
He can jam incoming ordinance, while simultaneously calling in a strike for his team. I hope you enjoy!

Have I mentioned I like Astronauts? - Sat Mar 31, 2018 11:20 am

Just a couple of astronaut shots. Some of them still need helmet collars and everybody needs their life support equipment, but they were all suited up, so what the heck.
I thInk I need to start shooting photos with something other than my ipad. Picture quality just isn't what I want.Topics tagged under custom on OneSixthFigures - Page 3 Img_5611

A Place to Call Home - Thu Mar 29, 2018 3:57 pm

Hello everyone!
For those who don't know me, My primary interest is in Sci Fi figures and dioramas
I like Astronauts, Robots, Space Marines, etc.
My main dioramas are a Space Station, a cargo vessel, and battleship ( The Iowa II)
These are so large that they are continuous WIPs and maybe for a long time.
Since the guys need a place to sleep and draw air while on Mars, I built them a HAB.
This is also a WIP, but close to completion.
Hope you enjoy!

Please use this thread to report and exhibit items you have found useful for your dioramas and other sixth-scale purposes.

For example, I am reposting some information and images that I contributed to the One Sixth Warriors forum. Inexpensive high-quality plastic boxes available at Walmart, Kroger, and Cotswold Collectibles, coming in several colors (clear/white, green, red, blue, purple) and sizes.
