    Sure did use Alans templates they fit together nicely and don't look too bad once done. Considering 75% of the tools are hidden, i figured that these will do for me. They are certainly better than the vacuum formed set i have at the moment (those look like jelly molds)

    Very nice... I look at the template and scratched my head on this one... So i bought a set instead.. I think buliding was the way to go for sure, because there lighter then resin ones.

    Excellent work Ronin

    Couple things you may want to look at

    1. weather your tools.
    2. I think one the tools is missing somthing.. (the one to the left).

    Heres what i did. I wont post the pic but heres the link its not my thread im not going to hijack.

    Those are nice. What colour did you use on the knife and spatula handle? Yes i intend to weather these suckers but need to add finishing touches first. and yep one is missing, its still in my shed and i'm figuring out how to make the ends haha

    Everyone on this forum is awsome and theres tons of resources to feed off of. If everyone kept there secerts to themselfs then there wouldnt be a TDH community. 1. I didnt wna tto jack your thread, hahaha and 2. there just shin tools! hahahah

    If i were to weather again... i would do it a little different.
    I would spary sliver weather the knife, Then mask it... then spray that goldie light tan color. Then weather again. This way the sliver is weathered under neathed the goldie layer.
