This is the sentry box that i built, the angle of the roof is a bit steep but it will be ok as a display piece. I have another one half done on which i changed the angle i will put a pic up when it's done, hope you all like it Very Happy

Cheers Dal glad you like it, I forgot to explain that the roof angle governs the angle of the stripes. This second one should look better as the angle of the roof wont be so steep. Hope that makes sense Shocked

With woodworking skills like that, there's little fear of being sent to the Eastern Front!

Beautiful work, Richard!!!

Beautifully done RD. I love your attention to detail, it's created quite the masterpiece my friend. The figures more than do it the justice it deserves.

I agree with all the comments made so far, there's a bit of skillful craftwork on show there Richard, nice one!

The painted chevron lines are perfectly straight, masking tape? Cool

Finally got the second box finished, angle on the roof on the second one is better i think. First one is bottom right and is slightly bigger.
If i ever build another one i will cut it out of plywood and stick the sticks on, the sticks are not all the same size and you are constantly
trying to make up the gaps, hope you all like it Very Happy

That is quite remarkable! I notice there is detailed inside framing, too, as well as the detailed exterior. Fantastic work! You must have infinite patience as well as coordination and skill.

Superb jobs there Reddragon.

You have exceptional skills there mate. Very Happy

If you ever do a line in these as custom sentry boxes, my guess is you'll clean up !

Great stuff, thanks for sharing.
