Just a quick piece dear reader, and more to come in the following weeks; As I'm out for business for the next few days....
Sat down today and decided to finally do some of the stuff I seem to be "collecting" from Mr. Forrest Harris at Knuckleduster.
I decided to start with something easy, they, I went with the "Coffins and Tombstones" kit.
Knuckleduster makes a fine selection of buildings and figures in 28mm (and other scales!), of The Old West/Early 20th Century America out of laser-cut wood.
The owner, and man behind the curtain is Mr. Forrest Harris, (who I am always pleased to see).
A look at the pack (front and back)....
Pretty simple right?
Okay so upon opening the pack, I find that there is enough stuff for three caskets and eight grave markers. The coffins are two pieces and the markers obviously one.
The picture below is in error as each coffin has three pieces. A bottom piece, (exactly like the top), a middle frame, and the top piece for a total of 17 pieces in the pack.
Hmmm...that's a lot of stuff for such a small pack.
Assembly of the coffins was very easy. White glue the frame to the bottom. Let it dry, attach the top with glue and paint. Or leave the coffin open.
As fot the grave markers, they allow you to be creative....
Below is essentially the finished product. I did two in a lighter shade of brown, and in one of them I painted the interior white to give the impression of a "De-Luxe" coffin, "guaranteed to allow your loved one to rest peacefully and decompose in the comfort and style befitting them...."
All in all...some very easy and quick pieces for those days when you don't have time to get big projects worked on, but want to accomplish something (and help get the "stuff" out of your closet/drawer/shelves and completed...).
More reviews to be coming....
