PostSubject: scratch built and molded replica guns in Australia   Fri Aug 03, 2012 12:20 am

Hi everyone...g'day Dan...
well I thought I would post some pics of projects finished and underway...I run a business in Australia making replica guns and military ordnance...unsure if i can post the website here but google replica gun or grenade australia and i am sure you will find me....it all came into being as in Australia we are severely limited when it comes to firearm ownership and this extends into replica and model guns . To the extent that the older Japanese replicas now command very high prices and even the denix replicas are way overpriced compared to overseas prices .

Some replicas are simply not available or very highly priced
The main medium i use in my builds are RTV silicone to create the molds and polyurethane resins for the minor and major parts , some replica small metal parts, also PVC sheet in different thicknesses and PVC tube. I am not a machinist but have become very good at working with plastics, and recreating from scratch..where possible I try to have opening feedcovers, moving cocking handles etc etc....anyway heres a couple of pics ..let me know what you think ..thanks in advance ..Eric

Excellent work Eric - and welcome to the forum from a Kiwi "cousin".
As Ozi says, you'll find yourself well at home here with the friendly and talented like-minded people who inhabit this part of cyberspace.

Look forward to seeing more of your work, and learning how you do it! Very Happy

Cheers.

thanks for the compliments...as they say necessity is the mother of invention...if our laws in Australia weren't so draconian we would be able to have the airsoft equivalent ...if only for display...pics of finished M60 replica later today
thanks again
Eric

Welcome to the Forum Eric Very Happy

Your replicas are very, very impressive. Your obviously well skilled at working with plastics and resins Exclamation I'm full of admiration for people that can scratch build detailed models like this. I am looking forwards to seeing more and hopefully learning how you go about building these.

I've only just discovered this forum and this (happily) is my first post.

Great to see Eric here and as someone who has had the pleasure of dealing with him on a couple of occasions, I can vouch for not only his professionalism but for the quality of his products as well.

Great work mate..

Highest regards
MARK

I've just thought, are you the fella from New Zealand that has the youtube channel and is always buggering off to America to shoot big guns?
