This is just sick Andy, and without magnification? :surprised:

Impressive! Do you have some more photos of this great scene?

Cheers

The gun has about 80 pieces. I cheated with custom drawn etchings but there are many tiny bits of styrene. The smallest pieces were the handles on the brake crank wheel handles - about 0.25mm diameter and 0.5mm long. Yes, this was done with my naked eyes, when they worked properly! The figures are converted Germans (Don't tell Grandad!) I made it using two pairs of tweezers.

Thank you Ian. I, like the other MM refugees, want to integrate with those of you who have allowed us to invade your space on mass. I am presently 'homeless' having had to vacate my house due to a flood while its rebuilt. I am having to live with friends for a few months and am being respectful that I am in their home. I now find myself being turned out of my 'virtual home' too, but I come to learn, share and encourage, enjoying a shared hobby. We have chosen your 'home' because it is a friendly place to be. I've made a name for myself on the internet, but am determined never to become arrogant - nobody likes an a**ehole!

Hi Andy,
Your work never ceases to amaze me, I wouldn't be able to achieve this at twice the scale with the help of an optivisor !!!!!!!

Thanks guys and I’m glad that you joined us Ron.
I did these in the early Noughties and would need my optimiser now! At least my hands are still steady and I had several years of arthritis (which has gone now) in between.
