A bit of R & R

Post by Ed Groenenberg »

As I had 2 weeks off around X-Mas, I did spend some time in the shed making some chairs for the table.
The I also got 2 more Dragon dolls in, so I did make a simple setup of a day R & R for some soldiers.

I also made some 'Verrechnunchsschein Reichsmark' paper money using some semi transparent paper I had lying around (yes, it's in 1/6 scale).

Ammonution box for shells/cartridges

Post by Ed Groenenberg »

In one of the pictures in this tread, a stack of ammo boxes are shown.
So, I decided to make one, acting like a prototype for now as I had to calculate it's measurements.
Made of strips of Pine for now, but want to use a bit more dens type of wood for the next ones,
as I want to make a stack similar to the one in the picture posted earlier.

Crate with casing.
Crate with casing.
The color used for spaying is 'Dunkel Grau' (Dark Grey) as ued by the Wehrmacht.
Not sure if it was the proper color for these type of crates tough.

No markings yet. Is there a way to make reusable paint stencils with markings?

One could try drawing it in CAD and then 3d print the stencil.

Would that work on such small letters & symbols? That would surprise me a lot.
