Then I took .020 square rod and made the decorative trim for the coffin, .060 solid rod for the handle braces, and I'm using paperclips to make the handles.

Thanx everyone! I'm chugglin' along with this one! LoL

 

Since I am having issues with the rear door hinges. I'm just going to leave the door open to display all the hard work on the interior. And since I have a lot of empty space what is the best way to fill it up. Make a casket/coffin!

I got the dimensions online off Google and used a scale calculator to shrink things to size. Then I got some .060 sheet and .040  solid rod, cut everything to length, then glued everything up and left it over night to dry nice and tight. Then I started shaping things to form the casket.

Oh, yeah! I made it where the lid is hinged and can open.

Using the decorative coffin brake near the door and made a new one for the front.

Thanx everyone for the comments and compliments!

Well I had a bit of a hiccup with hinging the rear door, it seems its either open or close but no swing. I tried multiple location points and many different hinges and nothing works. Oh well, I'm going to display it open anyways as the interior is coming along smashingly!

I made the Rollers with Half Round glued to .010 Styrene Sheet and then I used .040 styrene strips to make the coffin stop/slide rails. I'll later foil these for some shiny bits in the rear end. LoL I drilled holes in it for multiple location points. I hand crafted and sculpted the rear coffin stop from scrap styrene. I doubt I'm making a front one as this one took me 2.5 hours of widdling and fiddling. Hands are tired. LoL Enjoy!

What you see on the divider that looks cushiony .... Well, that's the "crash pad" and I just need to put the trim on in between the two sides. I also made the window larger on the divider. Not sure if I'm going to put glass in it yet or not. We'll see!  

Enjoy!!

Amazing work Harry! I watch in silence as words can't describe the "In Aww" that I am over the realism and overall craftsmanship of your skills on these wonderful builds. Thank you for sharing.

Stunning work! I've followed a lot of your work and it just amazes me! Even at this scale I'm still stunned by how realistic it looks. Great job!
