    Welcome to our forums. Do you have a collection? We love to see photos of our fellow members work. Are they scale model or life-size replicas?

    I thought some here would like to see this cardmodel in 1:1 scale of a '73 Winchester. For the life of me I can't remember where I got it but it took a bit of remodeling to get some parts to fit properly, particularly the buttplate. Great model to build if you're prepared to fiddle with some pieces however the finished product looks pretty realistic from a few feet away. wallmounted.JPG

    I love old Winchesters, there's an origin a Model 1883 in 45-70 in my collection, and an Italian replica 1883 Carbine in 44-40.

    Nice job on the model, and welcome aboard...

    I like them too, but fear someday someone will get shot for not being careful with them. Probably a kid, and some trigger happy idiot. Some of these guns are incredible, and if made from aluminum flashing, would look like the real thing.

    AgO2's 1911 from paper looks 'Real" Z... One of these days I'll get a working printer again.... What little money I had stashed went to a new microwave, and art supplies for my youngest's college classes.

    Let me know what's wrong with your printer. I had an electronic repair shop for 10 years, and have fixed many printers. Send me a P.M. :)
