I've just constructed 2 of these Transit case's so we can move our .30 cals to shows etc.
The first one took a while because I made templates to assist in the making of more Now they take about 3 hours to cut and assemble,and another 1/2 hour to paint, then 10 mins applying the leather to the parts which come in contact with the .30 cal (my mrs hasn't got a leather belt anymore:) ) The Stencil took 3/4 hour to cut then 10 mins to apply.


What do you reckon????

I'm also constructing gun racks for the wall which look great including hand carved oak badges Pictures to follow of the gun racks when complete.

You'll find lots of goodies in my workshop,Dodge engine,Gearbox ,Jimmy parts,Jeep parts,several military radios,field telephones,about 15 helmets of all shapes and size's and that's a quick thought.
I've run out of room and time :cry: :cry: :cry:.

Workshop is clean now after 4 hours of cleaning and tidying.
:oops: :oops: :wink:
