PROJECT: 3R HEAD COLLECTING
Hi, My name is Jack, I'm 51 as of 2018, and I'm the owner of Battle Zone Hobbies. My project started in 2017 and is on-going as I collect 3R German heads, that are decorated, with their hats and iron crosses. As 3R puts out more figures, this means that I have more heads to collect. I show the heads in a custom made acrylic display case, which is 24"x16"x6", that I installed a LED lighting system & mirrors on the back wall. I purchased individual head display cubes from China, which cost a bloody fortune even with a discount & cost 3 times as much as the rest of the materials, and I used the bases and the suction cups, to hold the heads. The suction cups don't stick at all, so I had to super glue them onto their bases. I have still found no use for those individual head display cubes, as when I'm finished I should have 39 of them. I plan on making 2 more display cases, which I have all the materials for, that are half the size of mine & selling them.. I have about $3000.00 worth of heads, hats, iron crosses, head display cubes, & the display case, but that doesn't account for the paint, brushes, super glue, wood glue, LED lighting system, & mirrors or the labor. My most expensive head would have to be 3R Adolf Hitler (1940-1945), which I paid $200.00 for. I bought most of my hard to find heads, hats, & iron crosses, from a guy out on the East coast. The pictures below are older pictures of my project and I haven't had the chance to take any new ones.
