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 "Stagecoach"), and some of those were shortened to make it easier to spin-while-cocking. The loops I made from brass stock. Here are most of them, some painted, some still in progress, made from a mix of BGT, DS and CXR copies. I had ground the barrel band off the El Dorado carbine (still not sure why), so that got replaced, and I added two tiny screws to the reciever of each for a little extra detail.



Here they are painted up. I painted the rifles in my own mix of Tamiya Gun Metal and Blue. Then they all got heavily dry-brushed with Acryl Steel for that worn look. The bottom rifle is an experiment on making an 1866 rifle from a BGT Henry and Winchester. (Not a Duke weapon, I'm afraid.)



And here is a close-up, also showing the Colts for a "Shootist" and a "True Grit" bash.



I should have another western figure done in the next 2 days, then some work on some Cavalry film figures. Thanks for looking!

Beautiful work, man.

I especially like the yellow-handled Colt. It's one of my favorite Wayne guns. Apparently, it was one of his favorites, too.

You've certainly done them all justice.
