Hi Everyone today i have to show you a 1/6 scale custom mortar launcher made from things around the house.
The main body is made from a coloring pen and its lid.
The adjustable legs are two different size pen filaments one over the other
The pitch adjuster assembly is made from a cog from a RC gearbox with the Front suspension from a 1/18 model car.
The hanging bag is two sets of covered computer diodes with covered wire for the strap.
The base is the plastic peace from the middle of a pizza box (the part that stops the lid sagging).
covered with some aluminum mesh covering it as with the leg bases.
The mortar its self of the end of a pen with some of the insert and the cog from and old cassette player makes the flights.
The Brass grenade is from a fishing swivel with wire as the pull pin as the lever.
The plastic grenade is just something i had laying around in my hobby box with pin ect same as above.
I hope sharing this with you may inspire you to have a look around your home for materials that you to can use to make these inexpensive accories for 1/6 figures.
In the Area of Australia that i live 1/6 parts accessories and figures are expensive!
Because a hobby need not cost a fortune! just inspiration!
Total cost $3.00 and 1 hour of my time.
