    I have a local plastics company bend them up for me and they surprisingly cheap too £10 (about $15) each

    I use IKEA Detolfs so the measurements are as follows if any of you wanna do the same.

    350mm wide (this fits in between the uprights)
    50mm heights steps
    70mm depth steps

    There's also a 50mm return at the bottom of the back leg to stop it sliding down the back of the glass shelf.

    Andy ;)

    Killer pics and great collection. It's nice having so many colors of the same sculpt, normally it would be a bore but rebel ink!

    Thanks man, I'm a bit of a fan of some of the same sculpts (as you can see) but the rebel Ink & Salvation Inks look killer as a set.

    Only 4 Rebels to go ;)

    Thanks man, only 1 missing now I believe - GID Blue from 2010 Lucky Bag
    I'm not holding out much hope for the Champagne as I thought there was only 1 done and it was auctioned off by Hiddy.

    Great setup and awesome customs! D-Lux & Tophy are cool but that Freckingham and especially the "wavey" one next to it are KILLER! Who did this one?

    Thanks guys ;)
    Debating whether to start on the Rebel Captains next but from what I understand that's a bit of a mammoth task!

    So the Rebels are still getting painted thick and fast and I finally decided to try my luck with the Rebel Captains.
    As soon as I had a few and then saw a Skull Captain I knew I had to have more... the quality is exceptional.
    Anyway here's the rebels and the Pushead progress so far...

    Thanks man. I've collected for years and still collect Michael Lau but the Japanese stuff especially Secretbase has really grabbed me.

    @Dampgraves Must be the enjoyment part as the Rebel Ink collection is complete even down to the Friends & Family Black Dallas with the Black test print Tampo ;)
