Had a shot at fixing up this broken Ice pick I had lying about in my spares box, see could I get it to a serviceable state again.

I had a fully intact one from my Arctic Marine (right) that I used as a reference guide.

As you can easily see the tang had snapped off and the metal loop and rope were missing.

Very slowly and carefully drilled it out. I use a modeller's small suction vice for grip and stability whilst doing this.

Tiny bit of wire glued in as an armature to support the re-modelling.

Modelled it out with a bit of milliput.

Just before final shaping and sanding..

Got it to a reasonable shape.

Coat of primer and paint. The dagger beside it is a modded Lego sword, for my FRF.

Final Silver coat.

Not too shabby I hope?

Found an eyelet ring that I could use for a rope loop and some kosher rope that I had to unwind and wash it was THAT filthy.
Obviously, it faded, hence the difference in colour betwixt it and the intact ice pick.

Happy enough with it though. This will go to my Mountaineer, currently a work in progress.

Thanks chaps. Very Happy
I just hate throwing anything Action Man out. Plus I do get a kick out of the challenge of rebuilding them.
