    Thumbs up " Southern Boarder Defender " 1979 Chinese PLA custom ( wood/metal SKS n RPK! )

    This is the first time for me customizing a figure, the base figure is Chinese PLA from Sino- Vietnamese War by Minitimes. (For the background of the war please visit my instagram: pewpewfig )

    I have done some leathering to the uniform, the helmet and the boots for around 2 hours, a very interesting experience.

    The body is very nice, you can make very natural and realistic shooting poses.

    The figure comes with a tt33 and a type 56 AK, but I switched away the ak for the working realistic wood and metal SKS/ RPK

    The RPK is made of wood and metal, and the magazine latch, bolt, trigger and hammer are all functional.

    The same for the type 56 SKS, very realistic and looks amazing with the figure.

    The construction is solid, and you do not need to worrying about breaking it

    Who makes the wood/metal SKS?

    I did not know there was another SKS option outside of 21st Century.

    Nice!

    It is from a workshop in China, I don't think people outside know it or able to buy them.
    They also produces many ww2 guns, and it is very fun dry firing those open bolt miniature guns.

    Reminds me how much I hate loading my SKS. Those stripper clips are a nightmare. Usually just do it one by one.

    Congrats on your first bash! Very cool photos and great layout!
    BTW, I noticed your handle, pewpewfig? Bought one of their robots, IMO it is not good... Plastic and plastic and more plastic. And the plastic keeps falling off. Not even good plastic... And for that price, I was expecting better...

    Fred_IV, I have the metal/wood one of these SKS. It was also made by Phicen, although I have strong suspicions that they used the same manufacturer as Pew has stated.

    Well done.

    Is the SKS hard to get, or is it only available in China? I'd be interested in buying one of those.

    Very cool on the SKS! Thanks for the replies, guys!

    Hopefully they will make it to a figure that goes abroad one day!
