New idea for ammo box
« on: March 29, 2017, 01:37:50 »
Hi everyone,
hope you are doing fine  ;D

Lately I've been thinking over and over about my super easy custom redcoats and how to improve them:



basically I just removed the odd white stripes adding a canteen coupled with the pouch/satchel to represent the ammobox:





Sometimes I like to do some "items mining" through the latest playmobil catalogue looking to find new items...and my eyes were caught by this:



This police woman is wearing a nice black purse which I find perfect to use for a new kind of ammo box!



What do you think? Does anyone has it? If so do you think that fits well on male klicky?

Have a nice day  :wave:

Looks good, now if they'd just produce a guitar strap in white or buff instead of blue.

sorry for kicking up this thread HDTM,
but I thought its better I mention to others that there are different lengths of these straps in case anyone is thinking of following your great idea..

the shorter one (54mm), 30215063, I use for binoculars
and the longer one, (67mm), 30073849, for rifles

thank you HDTM!
(I hope you ordered 50 of the longer version....I have little patience when I get an inspiration for a new part, so I often buy more than the quantity I need without ordering 1 piece first....and getting wrong parts or dont fit or are in reality, different from the angled drawings :P)
