Not the smallest, but I like it. It is from my personal collection.[IMG][/IMG]

For scale.

Now, the most recent addition is very special. Recently, the Queen was presented with a very special firearm. The same hands that made that, made a miniature version, fully engraved. I am authorized to do a photo shoot of it, if you guys are interested. I'll do a few shots of the collection room anyway, as well as some of my favorites over the next few days.

Cheers,

Kennith

Not to worry, I'll get some machine guns for you guys. I just like the older ones, that's why I have kept the pictures.

Cheers,

That's the biggest quarter I've ever seen!

Lol.

That is my favorite, though the one in the NRA museum is probably the best I own. I only have a few.

He's got a few functional 1911s that I think are about the same size as that quarter. I'll get a shot of one of them. Your pick, 24 carat Gold, Silver, or Stainless.

Tomorrow I get some cooler pics.

Edit: For the record, that last firearm is fully functional, as are all it's accessories.

Cheers,

Kennith

A couple more from the photographic chaff I have accumulated.

Thanks, man.

I'm pretty sure he has that Russian one, actually. I seem to recall having to show him how it works. Lots of neat little touches on it that you wouldn't think they'd bother to make functional.

If it is easy to get to I'll snap a picture of it. What I am going to look for tonight is a nice double gun or two.

Believe it or not, some of the makers have accidentally shot themselves trying to test them out as they attempt new designs. Not a nasty injury, given the small size, but I'll bet it hurts.

Cheers,

Kennith

By Russian, I meant German, of course.

Two for you, John.

And for the miniature 1911 loving gold gun pimps, there is this. Not plated. I shot this one because it was the easiest to get to, the silver and stainless ones are tucked away somewhere. Edit: Even though it is solid 24k, it is entirely functional. It may be too soft to survive a bullet being fired within it, but the stainless one isn't and is equally small. I took some more photos of revolvers and such that are tiny if you are interested in more pictures.

Shit, keep them coming.

I'm digging that FG42. The trigger guard and pistol grip look a little weird but overall that thing is sweet.

And is that a miniature Perazzi? Even the locking surfaces are correct. Holy shit.

Not my photographic pride and joy. I have some nerve damage in my left arm, and I broke my tripod. Sorry for the quality. I actually took about 30 pics tonight, but most of them ended up blurred. I'll try to set up a tripod tomorrow, I'll see if I can borrow one. I am actually pretty good with a digicam when I can keep my damn hand steady.

I can arrange for you to have a coffee table book if you want to shell out a few bucks. It has already been published. They aren't cheap, but they are high quality, as good as anything in barnes and noble or better, and most every one in it is from this collection. The book is huge. I can get the books if anyone is interested. I think you guys would have a blast looking at them. I have one here somewhere. I'll post pictures of that as well.

I had a rough day. I'll get some more pics up tomorrow or the next day.

Cheers,

Kennith

true but the uniquness of a cast toilet is acceptable, if it were made from a fake material with a pencil sharpener in the bottom i would have no love.

that and it looks like some of those faucets are working or at least try to work. don't ruin this for me marc.

I own that and have given it as a gift a few times. It is one of my all time favorite miniatures.
