Ammo and Cases for Nashorn

I have spent the last couple of weeks making up some cases and Ammo for the Nashorn. I had talked with Tim Bowman about using his Ammo to make a mold and he said OK, I also talked to him about the stencils for the boxes that I was making up and he told me to send them to him and he would stencil them for me. Thanks Tim, they finished them off perfect. I also did some close up pictures of the figures from Eduardo and they came out great. Thanks guys for the help on this build. I have built a turn table out of a Lazy Susan bearing that the Nashorn now sits on so I can rotate it with one hand.

Re: Ammo and Cases for Nashorn

Sweet looking ammo and cases! I really, really like the action shots of the crew loading the rounds into the Nashorn.

Re: Ammo and Cases for Nashorn

Great work on the crates Bill! Hard to tell, but it looks like you even have dovetails on them
Very cool of Tim to let you crank out some of his shells. Did you even use any of the shells that came with the kit?

Re: Ammo and Cases for Nashorn

Looking great! Now that you have the figures and accessories in place, could we get some wider shots of the entire piece?

Re: Ammo and Cases for Nashorn

Thanks, but I was hoping for some shots of the final product with the new crew, when you get a chance.

Here are some outdoor shots of the Nashorn and new crew. I will take some more outdoor shots when it warms up, to cold now.
