Spent a long time working on this and its finally finished,
Made around a versatile BT combat, this has been a journey getting this
finished and looking as much like a SVD as possible, i used CLAY to build parts of the marker that i didnt have, of course after baking in an over, it goes rock hard. please see pics..
few things that changed along the way was the SVD scope, although it would of looking more genuine, it was not practical to fabricate onto the marker, and also i wanted the use of FS so needed the scope to be spot on as much as i can be.
Another was the BT feed tube, it occured to be the 10shot feed tubes could act as a perfect 'magazine' so i tried it and it works, and this this allowed me to slide the feed neck down the weaver rail, so i can breach loads FS.
here are some WIP pics
offering up the parts i had to the BT.
fixing the barrel inside the hand guard.
Getting rid of the red wood, to make way for a nice traditional stain.
Moulding parts from Clay, this parts will then be baked then dry brushed silver to give a metalic look.
cutting the SVD mag to fit around the marker.
D shaping the feed of the breach to allow for FS
Fixing the Stock to the handgrip.
hope you guys like it, here is my facebook like, that shows some more photos of the SVD and my other custom work.
