Cheers fellas, 2 down, 6 to go!

Pretty much convinced at this point to do 20mm as my mainstay. I can achieve the look I want for a fraction of the cost.

Rusty, what size plastic sheet and Rod are you using? because you've got the scale'ing spot on? or are you just grabing what comes to hand!

I use plasticard about as thick as printable card, but only because its there... i just use scrap, like my custom minis I cast, I just recycle wherever possible. I'm not tight by any stretch but why spend out when we are surrounded by free material?

The rod is from model zone, cant remember the size but its about the thickness of lead from a pencil.

The rivets are just slices of rod.

sharp blade and you can do anything :stab:

Yep, got you'r mate i do the same, the best bits ive used have been "oh look at that! that'll make a good plate/washer etc"
i do my rivets the same, cant understand buying custom made rivets or bolts!

i get my rod!(oh Aarrr!) from Little_toy_models on ebay seems quite cheap, cheap is good! just put in 'Evergreen' and it comes up 'like evergreen'!

cheers

I LOVE 20mm Mate, even though it's small, there is quite a lot to do in this scale. To get drivers and such you can look at Stan Johanssen or eBay Dark Future models.

Looking forward to seeing your next stuff!
