    Guys, I know that this is not really figure related but I just couldn't help sharing this thing with you. This is the latest commision I have been working on lately and it's definately the strangest. Believe me it was a huge headache , especially not being in the human form :lol: The upper spiked sphere was made using a billiards ball , forming putty over it. I couldn't take pictures of the finished piece since I wasn't able to hold 27 pieces together that long. So I took a pic of all the parts and a pic of the real thing leaving you to figure out where evrything goes :lol: :lol:

    My fault my friend. I didn't tell you what it was. It's an anti sub mine. Don't ask what period cause I simply don't know. I was so baffled when I got he pics that i didn't bother to look further. It might be WW2 though

    Anders , Thanks. In fact you're very right , I didn't know from where to start but after some deeeeep thought I came up with a design that seemed like working.

    Keneth , the mine will be cast but not to be released commercially. I 'm informed that it will be presented to officers on their retiremnet or something. Don't know really!!! :lol: :lol:

    This is pretty cool. This looks like an old WW1/ WW2 ASW contact mine.

    They still fish these suckers out of the atlantic and med.

    Are you going to paint this like your photo here or weathered and rusted?
    Pls post the painted completed version! (y)
