    If you work that out, I'm game for a set. The gun looks great and can't wait to get one. It's slow torture seeing the progress!

    Ok, I finished the center greeble.

    I couldnt find any difinitive reference. And I didnt want to copy sidewinders. So I created my own, using parts I know are already on th gun. The following pic is with the original plug laid on it, and then one I ground down, to have rounded corners, correct thickness, and size. Youll see the difference. Input please before I create the plug.

    EVERYTHING on the gun, is exactly the way it comes in the kit, just has some super glue holding it together. And a bit of brown whiped dry on the stock.

    The bottom two have the double thick, extra wide border block on it. The top pics have the thin border, rounded block. Only 4mm size difference area, and 1mm thickness, but makes a huge difference in the end.

    Re: Webley Kits + Greebs: Interest

    I like it. Im making a mold of all 3 sizes. as theres different theories of which 'size' is correct, and mouting the scopes for silicone. They are gonna be tough to make. But I think finally, I have an idea of how they will be both acurate (except for a brace underside you cant really see) and very functional to secure the scope rigidly (thanks to the brace!)

    Ill post a pic of my mold idea tomorrow after my tourney, and see what you guys think.

    Im hoping to pull some of these kits monday, to ship tuesday when the post office opens.

    So if anyone is sure they want a greeble kit and or gun, better speak up! Cause once I finish this, and get these out, i think im retired from guns

    The top set for the greebs works for me and I agree that it does look more weathered and used.

    Im redoing the center greeble to be more screen acurate. Notperfect, but from 5 feet should be the closest out there.

    Ill post a pic of the master before I put it in rubber.

    Re: Webley Kits + Greebs: Interest

    ok here the master I whipped up this morning. need to make a mold, then sand down some spots, then make anothermold. Or maybe leave it like this, the roughness adds distress.

    I realize its off a bit. But i used mostly parts from the v8 kit, and I wanted to get it done.

    I still think its closer than whats out there, at least that I have seen. What do you guys think?

    Re: Webley Kits + Greebs: Interest

    Thankjs spidey, as I put in the other thread, this was a quick 2 hour from start to finish build up, as I was almost done, ran across a picture I had never seen, and redid it.

    From a piece of sintra and some model kit parts, to being in an inch of silicone, was honestly 1 hr. Which was pretty good really. It took me an hour to look through the model kit, and grind pieces down to put in the block.

    Its not perfect, but its closer than Ive seen so far. If i had a better pic, im confident I could make it screen acurate. I could get a lot closer now, but without being able to see all the true details, it seems like more work than I am up for.

    I have the scope rings and a second center piece in silicone now, should start pulling complete kits tonight, which will be nice. Cause I want to get this project done

    I was the one that posted that picture actually.. it's a really great shot for sure, and one of the first of it's kind... Thanks to Official Pix of course.

    I will see if I can dig anything else up for ya.

    again Fantastic work.

    Well thanks for that pic. Though it added a nice burdon, because I already had 20 of the 'totally wrong' centerpieces done, It at least pushed me to put something closer to acurate, and as I get time, ill make a cad drawing and have one cut thats pretty close to that pic.
