Oh, that looks like a nice project.
Are you planning to include the toothpick and tweezers?

 :tu:

No, I prefer the scales without them.

Looking good  :tu: if that's an inlay on the old scales remember to save it before you bin them  :salute:

It's waterfall time

Thanks Borg.  What do you mean by inlay?  And saving it?

The metal inlay shield in the red scales, you can remove those quite easily and if you like you can recess and glue it into your new wood scales, i like the Vic shield so i did it to my wooden ones,  like this..



But even if you don't want to use them for that they are still worth keeping for other future projects  :tu:
Are you aware you can do that job without destroying the old scales?  just carefully remove them and photocopy them, use the photocopy as a template and glue it onto the wood, gives you correct size and also exactly where to drill, make sure you photocopy the inside though  :tu:

Thanks  :tu: Mahogany, not a good choice as it has wide grain for the inlay and wont be very hard wearing, but it looks nice and i never carry it so its fine, the Walker below has a nicer wood to work with, taken from my old broken BSA air rifle stock
Forgive a recycled indoor pic in an outdoor thread  :D

Thanks for the info Borg  :cheers:.  Your scales look good!  The photocopy idea sounds like it will work well.
I like the plain wood look, hence no T&T slots and no Vic shield.  I might try to remove the shield anyway for interest sake.

Those things look familiar. Tell me is there a Prometheus design werx SHADO pack with a mandalorian logo and a HPG Umlindi with the same logo in your collection?
