    Over two years ago, I posted pics of a John Wayne figure as Tom Doniphan from the John Ford film, "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance". http://www.onesixthwarriors.com/forum/sixth-scale-action-figure-news-reviews-discussion/759231-john-wayne-man-who-shot-liberty-valance.html At the time I said...

    "Fort Apache" (1948) was the first in what has become known as director John Ford's "Cavalry Trilogy". This is a dramatized - and rather sensationalized - version of the Custer/Little Bighorn story, set in the desert Southwest. In the film, martinet Lt. Col. Owen Thursday (Henry Fonda) and his...

    Since I started posting on the forums in 2009, some of you have followed my obsession with the John Ford "Cavalry Trilogy", in particular, his classic, "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon". I won't re-hash the film's personal meaning, but John Wayne's character, Captain Nathan Brittles, was my first...

    One of the things I spend a lot of my 1/6 time on is matching hs (mostly DML) to my figures. Whether it's a historical figure, like a particular officer, an existing painting, or a film actor, I enjoy going through my boxes of heads to find the right match. As I haven't exactly mastered face...

    Amy from A J Clothiers has helped me again with a feminine figure. Her companions are quite a ways from being ready, so I figured Olivia needed a little preview. Amy shortened the SST greatcoat and cape, and shortened and took in the SST officer's frock to make it a ladies shell jacket. I...

    This one has been in the works a long time, and I'd better get this one close to right. My version of Rooster Cogburn needed a lot of things to come together, and now they have. "I'm a Federal Officer!" "We'll camp here." "Fill your hand, you son of a..." The hs is Peter the...

    I've been making progress on some more Duke figures, but needed a few more Winchesters. And some previous works needed repair and improvement. The Duke carried a number of stock and converted 1892 Winshesters in his films. Some had the iconic large cocking lever loop (first seen in...

    Fire03 recently posted his version of John Wayne in "The Longst Day", so I held off finishing mine for a bit. I never did get the parachute harness worked out, so you see him posed on the ground, using an M-1 rifle for a crutch. Don't think he'll ever get an ammunition cart to ride, but he'll...

    Ever since I saw Amy's (A J Clothiers) Hondo outfit, I've wanted to do that bash. I finally broke down and bought the set, and it was everything I could hope for. But I've also been saving a DML Bob Richardson hs to make Ward Bond as Buffalo Baker, Hondo's sidekick. Amy to the rescue again...

    One of my favorite John Wayne westerns is his portrayal as Tom Doniphon in John Ford's "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance". There are many great scenes from the film, but I focused on the confrontation with Lee Marvin's villain in the cafe. The two dangerous men size each other up before Jimmy...

    You're probably bored with John Wayne by now (heresy!), so I gave his companion top billing. In John Ford's first cavalry movie, "Fort Apache" (1948), John Wayne goes on a peace mission with his Spanish-speaking non-com, Sergeant Beaufort - after getting him released from the guardhouse...

    I was looking at some old Sideshow Toys pics and came across their version of John Wayne in "Sands of Iwo Jima". I don't regret not buying him, as I spent my money on Civil War figures instead, but I realized I had everything to make my own bash. I have several DML WWII U.S. Marines figures...

    Here is my version of the Duke as Lieutenant Colonel John Marlowe from the 1959 John Ford film, "The Horse Soldiers" The combination of the BattleGearToys Duke line and Peter the Painter's younger Duke hs (expertly painted by Gordon) made it that much easier. Here are a couple of screen...

    Hello friends... Well, I've finished another figure. On a roll as of late.. I decided that I needed to finish up my backlog of projects before starting any more new ones. So, here's another one of my favorite movie figures... John Wayne as Sean "Trooper" Thorton aka. The Quiet Man. Hope you...
