Thank you!! I'm dying to finish the radio station. I kinda hit a wall where I've made everything I had a plan to make, and now I need to figure out what else it needs and how to do it.

It really doesn't, right? I didn't have to do much really.

GubernatorFan wrote:Agree. The original was decent enough for a Barbie set, but of course the good Reverend has turned it into a grimy masterpiece. Well done!

Thanks much Guv! I think a little grim makes everything look a bit more real (That, or I just need to clean more...)

Stryker2011 wrote:Really cool turntables, Rev. Did you add the lights in the meter screens, or was it already like that?

Thanks Stryker! The meters are 2 layers, with some clear plastic on the front, and then I cut out the window on the origianal and printed and added the meters from the back. The space between gives it real depth, and the light is actually a part of the print! I couldn't even believe how realistically it photographed.

Customized 1/6 scale turntables. Started with an old Barbie set, repainted with Valspar silver (my favorite), a bit of grime, new styluses, and audio meters. What could these be for? Maybe we’ll be seeing the wastelands' radio station soon...

Now THAT's how you do it!
Excellent prop!

Rotan furniture (in plastic) and basket (in vinyl) which I bought more than 20 years ago.  Origin probably China. Original colour was pink, I repainted both with a simple layer of Humbrol Earth colour. Added some towels and a piece of clothing.
The drawers open and the ring handles move, more realistic than some "real" Barbie items.
Shown here with a "petite" Tbleague figure.

Welcome aboard, DarthJ. That’s a great adjustment to that Barbie cabinet. Impressive.

I am looking for the "Barbified" thread as I have lots more clothing and accessories than just that (night)dress. Among which Barbie original and repro "vintage", Sindy and others which don't need to be de-Barbified.

You could always create a thread for 'useful Barbie and/or doll items that don't need to be altered'. Smile

That subject has already been discussed at the beginning of this thread and I'm not in favor for creating yet another thread either. 'Diluting" too much the general subject, expect almost no views, even less replies. Been there, done that. I have a thread at a 3D site and despite its subject - creating and giving away 3D freebies - it's been almost a one-man show for 10 years and 20 pages. The freebies have some success though, especially when NSFW Shocked

As far as I'm concerned, there are two ways to go -- show Barbie (and similar) items that look realistic enough without modification in more realistic/serious figures and dioramas here (while indicating that they did not require modification), or to make a new thread/topic called (for example) Barbie Unmodified and to show them there. While I understand the rationale behind not creating an extra thread, I think both are legitimate approaches. Come to think of it, I suppose there is nothing wrong with just having a Barbie thread for its own sake -- I'm just not particularly interested in it myself, and assumed that most others were likewise interested in more realistic or plausible items.

Now that I've written this, I realize the lines between these things would become inevitably blurred and there might be little sense in having two or three separate Barbie-related threads after all.

This is an example. Actually this is a deBarbiefication too, I doubt Mattel ever intended their clothing to be worn this way.

Ha, nice one! ;D 

And regarding the various threads thing, I guess if you are showing items that are specifically suitable for use with the smaller tbleague bodies, then rather than making a new thread for them, you could perhaps also post them in one of the threads about said bodies:

https://onesixthfigures.forumotion.com/t2037-s26a-and-s27b-what-works-and-what-doesn-t-warning-lots-of-pics?highlight=s27b

Totally fine to keep posting the pics here too of course! Just wanted to mention these threads as well just in case. : )

I could if I would only use the small figures. Yet Barbie / Sindy / etc ... clothing is not "scale-steady", one time fitting only the smallest one, on other occasions requiring the larger dolls. If you use GI JOE / ACTION MAN / ACTION JOE (French version) clothing these only fit the larger figures.

This is "MAIN ATTRACTION" from 1985, an untypical evening dress for usually more classy girl-nextdoor Sindy. Worn by a large Phicen it becomes rather the "MAIN ATTRACTIONS" dress.

What a difference a more realistic body and head sculpt make! Very nice.

Lol, darthJ. It’s certainly ‘de-barbified’ simply by being worn by that figure. ;D

The contrast is much more obvious with the original Sindy who was a woman with a pre-teen body and an oversized baby-head.
