    Modeling historical reproductions in 1/6 scale and some Marine Corps collecting.
  1. Hi Leigh what museum is that?
  2. Thanks everyone for the nice compliments. I hope to post more I'm the near future.
  3. This is my 1/6 scale 1893 Godfrey rigged McClellan saddle atop a Mr. Z horse. There is a little difference between the 1885 and the 1893. Many of the 1885's were modified from a heart shape safe to a shield type safe with interlocking quarter straps to allow for adjustment. The front saddle rings were attached using a circular shape staple not used in the early 1885 saddles. This saddle is still using the 1887 boot scabbard with 1873 Springfield trapdoor carbine. Thanks for looking.
  4. Well those arent boots. They are leather leggings.Not sure if they were using them in WW2 when the 1928 was in use, The uniform is a compilation of a ww1 dough boy trousers. The shirt was a German off color shirt i had to bleach then dye a natural color. The campaign hat from Battlegeartoys and I made the goggles and made the cord. the cartridge belt I had to cut and paste from probably 2 different belts, then painted and tried my best to model the donut mechanism. Email me and I'll send you some pics of the figure. cadubon62@gmail.com
  5. Hello Ronnie! Nice to hear form you. This is probably the first time anyone has sent back a photo of a saddle I made them. Its nice to see you still appreciate it. I put that figure together. I've only done 2 ever. It was necessary to include a figure to demonstrate the rifle in the bucket as well as the mechanical donut.
  6. Thank you for the nice compliments.
  7. Hello all, Here is my 1912 I finished sometime back. I enjoyed making this one very much, but was quite a challenge. Thanks for looking.
  8. This is a beautiful figure and besides that, I've learned a lot about the WW1 dough-boy. Semper Fi
  9. Below is my War of 1812 U.S. Marine Sergeant to update and accompany the original post. The uniform is the same except for the NCO epaulets on both shoulders, the waist sash and an Army Rose 1812 sword he was assigned. The shako was a little different, rather than a red wool tuft in front, he used a red feather plume finished off with a leather cockade. Our Sgt., also would have been assigned the Brown Bess short India pattern musket and equipment. His leather bayonet belt would also accommodate his NCO sword. The uniform is all custom with me adding all the uniform details. The sword hilt and musket is from Tony Barton but scabbard and blade is the usmc Caltek sword modified. Thanks for looking!
  10. Thanks for the nice compliments. I tell you the ships section and ropes took me a few days to make and rigging it to the ceiling in my basement wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. The uniform was custom but it took a few days to put it all of it together.
  11. My young Leatherneck has just been assigned to the U.S.S. Constitution as part of the ships guard. During the War of 1812, there were approximately 1,200 U.S. Marines and that included the officers. My private is armed with the Brown Bess short India pattern musket, a favorite of most of the Marines at the time. His cross belts are carrying the 1808 ammo box and a period scabbard and bayonet. The U.S.S. Constitution never lost a battle and her most famous encounter was with the British HMS Guerriere. The Wars first Marine officer casualty was Lt. Bush who was attempting to board the Guerriere. My 1812 Marine (the first of many periods to come) is totally custom except for the shoes, ammo box and bayonet from BGT. The musket is from Tony Barton. The shako, shako plate and belt plate are 3D printed, flocked and customized by me. The uniform is custom and leggings made by my Dear old Mom. I added the yellow frogging and 3D marine buttons. The cross belts and scabbard are custom by me and the ammo box is BGT but modified to represent the 1808 ammo box used by the U.S. Army. The Ships section was more work than I anticipated but important for showing the heights scaled by soldiers and sailors of the U.S. Navy in order to get a better shot at the enemy or for that matter to operate a sailing ship of the 19th century. This Marine will soon be transferring to a High School JROTC display case to be followed by a Sgt. Thanks for looking. What! I have to go up there?!
  12. Thanks Gents for all your help S.F.
  13. this is perfect. it looks like there are no pocket flaps, just a slit for the interior pocket. Thanks for doing the leg work. i reached out to someone else who had a marine coat so its probably looks like this one. Thanks again.
  14. Thanks for helping out ww1n, very much appreciated.
