Yep! The Title says it.

ALL FROM SCRATCH!

For me AK are ether God aweful Whiskey Tango WHY expensive or I find one and I get out bidded on ebay... *Insert crying here*

SO! I took action into my own hands and said.

Screw it. Seems easy to make one scratch.

What I am making is a Modernized AK-47 with the Bells and Whistles. Rails, Slither Stock, YEP!

So here goes my Scratchbuild madness again..

OH my allergies and sanding.

Fine work, Uswin. I'll admit I'm an admirer of the traditional weapons, but time marches on, and these 'painted ladies' are seen daily, in the news.

Thank you guys. Will update later tonight. Got more work done on the build.

After the major details are finished then it's off to paint. Thinking on going Sand Color Receiver, Stock and Rail.

Re: An AK-47 Build. ALL FROM SCRATCH!! :D

I shell say.... Not mad... Just a touch on the insane side. :p

Thank you all.

More images.

























No doubt some of you guys are no asking why I am showing Every step of the build. I also did some mistakes and the good thing about styrene. It's VERY forgivable to work with while drilling holes.

Think of it as a helper if anyone is interested in giving this a shot. It's a GREAT build practices. An AK are pretty easy build. I'll have to get the Styrene shopping list later on.

I will have to travel down in Monteclare, to Pegasus Hobby for a resupply on styrene. Which is a LONG drive for me from Victorville.

Stay toon for more Shenanigans of this 1/6th AK Scratch build project.

That is pretty insane, but a GOOD insanity.

And hey, when you are done, you could just make a mold of it and make copies all you want without worrying about piracy laws. :D

That is awesome Uswin! I love the details that you have added to the Ultimak rails. I can't wait to see this beauty with some paint on her.

I have to admit that I'm scratching my head and wondering "why?" but that is some very cool and excellent work that you're doing.
