Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games (16-02-2017 test)

                                                              Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games
 


The game takes you to experience the life of mercenaries in single player mode, it has multiplayer too, which is interesting. The graphics reminds me of Sudden Strike, for some reason. If you like turn based strategy games, you will like this.
Sounds are good, but sometimes the music has a high pitch which is rather annoying.
Using setsound.exe works, but every time, only right before or after starting a mission, the sound volume must be raised from none to which you prefer. Thus, the voice mission sound long before the mission starts, cannot be heard.
Animations and sound are fluid.

This was among the first game review, different from what how i do it now.

Rail King toy train, tree logs cables mod


After you insert your chosen cotton thread in the bottom holes, you put small paper pieces under the thread to protect the plastic logs and to paint the cotton thread as a cable.

Anyone has information about Command & Conquer : Alerte Rouge : Missions Taïga ?

I acquire it from a thrift shop. I will post images. But no info in english online.
In the french wikipedia :
Westwood développe ensuite deux extensions en coopération avec Intelligent Games, Missions Taïga et Missions M.A.D., publiées respectivement en avril et septembre 1997.

This means :
 Westwood then develops two extensions in cooperation with Intelligent Games , Taiga Missions and MAD Missions , published respectively in April and September 1997

Parris bolt action rifle toy to Karabiner 98k modding (part 1)



I plan on repairing and modding it to make it look like a Karabiner 98k.


The toy gun is a 1:54 gun scale and i found it broken in half with no striper ammo clip and the wood smells like a fir tree.
The other half.

The first position of the bolt.


The second position of the bolt.


A ,,third,, position. A metal wood screw was inserted, so this ,,third,, was not posible this way with the screw inside the toy (the bolt action is a bit far away on the back this way to be normal).


On top of the other (the left hole goes over the right one) the parts where pined with a metal wood screw, scratching the wood inside.


Two cilinder places for mounting a telescopic sight are available, but the telescopic sight is missing. I may do a post-apocaliptic Karabiner 98k.

The trigger guard and its area is made from a metal or metal alloy.  The cartridge magazine will have to be hidden, to become a Karabiner 98k toy.


The trigger is not a metal or metal alloy.


Metal barrel with orange plastic tip removed, no iron sights. Rust was found inside, but you can clean it with machine oil and than protect it by painting it black. You can use oil base paint.


The front of the orange tip.

A cleaning rod my brother made, with a soft (some sort of bottle brush for hobby projects) and a hard surface (hot glue) on its ends. Another one will be made later on.


The soft end.
The cleaning rod hard part.


The upper bolt action areas is detached from the main wood frame.


The lower view.



My brother came with the idea that i may use a string and not the orginal (maybe original) wood screw. The wood screw moved inside until it reached a diagonal position (cartridge removal bolt position).
In the end, it doesen't hold for long. The string became loose.

I didn't find its original cartridge magazine, so i will try to make one from a laundry tong with a nerf ammo on top. On it and on the laundry tong, bits of magnets will be added to hold it on place, but the bolt action extractor will get and trow the nerf ammo away.

If i will choose not to use the laundry tong, i will put a small magnet on the nerf ammo on either ends, so the extractor (with a magnet) will extract it.
