  1. Hi all

    Am thinking of making my little lad a wooden SLR (prob half size) any idea about where I might find a template and anybody any tips about going about it?
  2. Are you a cock? (wooden)

    Why not make him a little wooden Bodleian Library and a wooden Mary Poppins instead. You could shove him up a wooden chimney; 'shtep in time' etc.

    Then you could impale youself on a large wooden stake on the front lawn to amuse me.
  3. You know the words...
  4. I made one for a nephew, but to be honest, plastic in kit form at 1/43 is a lot easier than wood at 1/2.

    Hope this helps.

  5. I think you should raise your sites a bit - what about a wooden 1/6th scale 'Dora' rail gun?

  6. Wooden rifle? Not enough scope for spectacle. Make him one of these instead.

  9. Surely a Sten would be easier, a few bits of copper pipe, a spring and a large nut and bolt for a cocking handle, job done.

  14. My fav toy as a kid!

    It used to shoot little plastic bullets!

    And when the barrel broke off (they nearly all did!), take the mag off and it looked like a SMLE but with a pistol grip!!!
  15. Buy the kid a drum-kit. Go on, you know you want to.
