Default My miniature 1/6 scale headgear

Hi Guys,

My name is Keith. I'm new here. I found this site while looking for references for the caps I make. I thought I'd take a minute to show you what I do.

I don't know how to directly post photos in this thread, so I'll have to direct you to my Flickr.com site. Here's the link http://www.flickr.com/photos/mimstudios/

Thanks for looking.

Keith

Keith, you're a craftsman. The detail and symmetry to your hats is fantastic!

WOW.....This visors and field hats have to be THE BEST headgear product in 1/6 scale I have ever seen!!!

Their scale,form and insignia looks superb, the "Herman Mayer" Luftwaffe cap looks great, and that one is not an easy hat to reproduce in 1/6 scale and finish looking perfect....Congratulations on a great craftmanship display.

Hey Keith,
I'm new here as well. I've seen some of your work before, and It is the best headgear I've seen...to bad I have no money.

WOW!!!! I'm speachless.... If I didn't know they were 1/6th scale I would have thought they were excellent repro headgear. And I too lack funds to get one of these jewels!!!!! Well done you are a Master Hatter

Hey thanks a lot for the kind words guys. I try to make my caps look as close to scale as possible. I get a lot of enjoyment out of seeing how much detail I can capture.

Rickart, your insignia looks good. I just talked to a guy last weekend about making some for me. I wish I had been able to check back here sooner. He hasn't gotten back to me yet, so we may have to talk.

Jaime, your figures are very nice.

Thanks again everyone,

Keith
