I don't think so. For one most if those sell out quickly and then a constant updating would be needed. In my opinion it should be just what the title suggests.

Personally, I get all my paint, brushes and what not at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. They constantly have a 40% off coupon. Hobby Lobby also has Alumilite casting products, and using that 40% coupon it becomes the cheapest anywhere!

What is the best site to get random stuff for some custom dioramas? I have most of the environments that Sideshow has put out, and some of the Triad ones, but I want to add some more "flair" to them. I added some real branches, rocks and twigs to my shelf with Dutch, Billy and P1 Predator and it made such a difference that I wanna do some similar stuff for some of my other figs and environments. Stuff that I could use as imitation grass or dirt would be great, maybe a place that also sells really good looking fake logs, rocks, metal walls or other random stuff that could be used in dioramas. Any help that anyone could give would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Not sure about the scale of some of the items, but I know Hobby Lobby has grass and dirt near the model supplies...

Might be worth checking out some model train sites and tutorials... I know they sell trees and logs...

The blue thing is a bracelet. The intent by us customizers it to buy the bracelets, and remove their buckles for 1/6 belts.

I realise that as I would like these as belts too as I'm working on a load of Star Wars customs at the minute and you can never have enough belts.

I wonder would we have any of those braclets here in Europe in our Euro shops (Dollar Stores).

Time to start looking!!!!

The only two sizes I use are 1/16 and 1/8. Anything else is too big for me.

Here is a quick scale reference that I keep close by when working on stuff.

2"=12"
1"=6"
1/2"=3"
1/4"=1 1/2"
1/8"=3/4"

Scroll to the bottom of that page.

This not the rubber/silicone bracelet but the clasps look the same. Looks like they require a min order of 3 and are 3 bucks a piece.

Hope that helps

Figured I throw this in here. Plumber's Epoxy. At least that's what they used to call it. You can get it in the superglue section of just about whatever store. Its a simply two-part clay that mix and it hardens in about five minutes.

It works great for quick fixes and adhereing parts for example when you modify a body to house a part from another figure/company. You can sand and paint after it cures, and takes glue really well unlike apoxie sculpt. I believe they sell it as one of those "as seen on tv" things too although it's green instead of blue (cures white). Not a bad item to have around the house in general really. Scarily enough I used to sculpt with the stuff when I was collecting DCD figures like eight years ago.

Johnny, per my email, I bought all of mine at Joann's Fabrics locally. I think you can find it easily by searching for "grosgrain ribbon". That's what they're called at the Joann's store I bought them from. I find that 1/4 inch is good for belts and 1/8 is good for little straps and things. I know they have other sizes, but those are the two I find that are perfect for things like military vests and gear.

Hey Ski! Thanks for the help!....what I'm talking about is very small...usually used to close 1/6 vests, or sometimes 1/6 button shirts when Velcro isn't used...usually circular, small, and the male end has a peg in the center...hope that makes sense..here is a pic of one that I have on a leather jacket strap by th neck area...was tough getting a pic of such a small thing

Pajji, if you're searching for snap fasteners (aka press studs), then try looking for 5mm or size 000 ones in silver/black. There is a size 0000 which I'm guessing are smaller, but they don't seem to be widely available. :)

Well 3/16 = 4.7mm so it depends what you are planning to use it for. Trouser belts in 1/6 scale are approximately 4 or 5mm, so a 5/32 or 3/16 buckle would be perfect.

1/6 scale gun slings are approx 3mm, so a 1/8 buckle would work better for that.

I made my own leather straps by cutting thin strips from leather.
3 of the straps were cut to 3mm, and 2 of them were cut to 4mm.

hello, I'm new collector :) I'm customizing my 1/6 joker head, I'm trying to add real hair on his sculpt, unfortunately I couldn't find the green tone as I expected :( so I bought brown hair. I've only one question: how could I paint the hair? which kind of color can I use ?

THANK YOU :love
You need to get blonde mohair off eBay and then dye it . that is the only way you will achieve the correct color.

There are lots of methods for hair rooting, some methods work better that others on particular sculpts. I've tried it a couple of times on 1/6 heads with mixed results, but to get you started take a look at how I do it and maybe tweak the process to suit what you want to achieve. Here's a bit of a step-by-step that I posted on OSW a while back: http://www.onesixthwarriors.com/forum/sixth-scale-action-figure-news-reviews-discussion/850761-tutorial-applying-hair-1-6-rambo-head.html
