An old photoshoot(summer '05)

I was looking through some old backup CD's today when I found these set of photos, they were taken back in the summer of '05 IIRC. I had completetly forgotten about them but I think they look pretty good!

Nice Glenning, very nice! Post more if you find them, its great fun to watch.


I really like this aspect of the hobby, it brings back many good childhood memories.

Me and my best friend Mårten used to arrange my Action Man figures and take photos, and it was done behind our part of the yard, since Mårten wasnt allowed to play with WWII, or modern military toys. His parents was of the beatles/peace flowerpower type of communists, and had a really wierd set of rules regarding toys. One have to remember that this was right after the Vietnam war, in the very early 70s of Sweden.
He could play with "historical figures, if they where from before 1920, but not of the confederate side of the US civil war".
All this of course led to Mårten becoming a veritable expert on WWII stuff as a kid. He also had the best collection of WWII figures (1/32 scale or what ever the plastic soldiers we had where made in).
Funny thing is, that his dad was a expert carpenter and muical instrument craftsman, among other things he made Nyckelharpa, a typical swedish instrument used in swedish folk music, and he used to make us all kinds of things for our Black Mask cowboy figures, including a texan fort, stables, trapper cabins and a small metal gatling gun in scale with a wooden tripod and reall leather saddles. I suppose it was Mårtens mother that was the chief in their household.

Wtf... grrrr danske skideröv!

Hehe, I am sure you are catching up, rapidly!!! Btw, my actionman toys where bought in copenhagen, my step-grandad is from denmark, fled to sweden during the war... and ended up in a labor camp for political dissidents, serves him right, he is a dansk skideröv as well!
I loved the huge toy stores in copenhagen when I was a kid.
And yes... I am aging rapidly. But I still wear skateboard shoes, does that count as being young (at least in mind)?

I'm a fan of your work as you know!! This is why.

That 3rd photo from the bottom is 1/1 dead on. You really need a double take. One of the most convincing pics taken in this scale! Great find, and thanks for sharing. Its always good to go through the 'old' stuff.
