Siege Mantlet (scratch built)

Or for the battlefield.
Gunners from Orions Seige troops, Strelets Medieval Levy II and the Serpentine from Zvezda´s Medieval Field powder artillery.
........................PEEK A BOO!
The door and side supports made from bits of Balsawood. The hooks on the back of the door made with bits of wire.
The hinges are made using theink tube from a  biro  which is then wrapped in cardboard. When it´s completely dry and painted the plastic rings can be pushed out . This made them a perfect fit for a cocktail sick which connects all 4 hinges together, allowing the outside hinges to be glued which holds the toothpick firmly in place.
