Hang 'Em High Gallows

I bought a gallows from Battle Flag to add to my collection (not long before 4Ground produced theirs - although this one can only handle a single hanging at a time!).  Here are some photos of the almost finished item (I need to sort out the noose - the "rope" is included:




The kit was easy to assemble - I only needed to texture and paint the base (as this comes in plain MDF) - it's a little more fiddly than some of the 4Ground kits but not significantly so.  The kit is not pre-painted but I think the natural MDF works fine.

  2. Great looking piece of kit. Did ya'll never learn that knot as a child. I guess I grew up on too many westerns and begged my Dad to teach me till he did. Made one then took it appart to do some other hairbrained 10 year old thing.

    1. No I didn't - it wasn't on the standard boy scout list of approved knots I suspect! Thanks for the link.
