    Excellent work, and excellent write-up about it, Jason! Enjoyed that very much.

    BTW, I remember my reaction when I bought my first 8-Rads and Morser Karl kits!

    Thanks for that, Jason! Very inspiring to keep trucking with mine. Also thanks to Q and Allen for all their help! All I need now are the B-29, an armature, and a 935 RSR.

    The B-29, no big deal.....the armature, I just have to visit my local machinist....the Porsche, well that's the kicker.

    Again, Jason, awesome coverage of your build so far!

    Jason, great to see you finally building your own baby, wonderful build thread.
    Have to agree, it really is a slinky looker of a prop! Still love to look at mine, a build i actually finished lol.

    Wow. Thanks for 'baring all,' Jason. This AT-ST is so sleek compared to its ROTJ counterpart and I've always loved it. Very informative - your build is great and I can't wait to read more!

    The original vac head piece was crafted by Allan Hansen, this is used on all ATST's in the group apart from mine, i went my own way with the profile.

    Quincy Cutshaw then used the same pattern i believe and possibly modified it, it was a while ago we did this project so im a tad hazy, dont recall them being offered in the end though, Quincy may tell you more.

    Its a donor hungry beast though, think we maybe got to over 40 kits, some blooming rare and spendy too, the C600 Delivery truck being one, prices on them werent appealing to begin with, once it was found as an ATST donor, they soared big time.

    It is one hell of a sexy prop though, lots of fun to build, and a joy to look at completed, the ROTJ never really got me hooked, the ESB, well, its got that cult short screen time status for me.

    Be nice to see an update Jason, the one you built for Mike was lovely.

    james,
    i did have about 3 or 4 sets of vac heads, but they have all been given away (to others who also had gotten an armature).

    if i can do it, you can -- check out the the old/original thread. make your drawing from what was presented, make a buck, then vac-form it. if you can't vac, then use your phone skills to find a shop who can help you out.

    drop me a pm if you have specific questions.

    i would also say MORE POSTS JASON!!, but that would be pretty hypocritical on my behalf (still doesn't mean i don't want it, lol).

    Julien im sorry, forgot you did the same with sheet. Still did an amazing job though, i do have a vac head here that Allan sent me an age ago, was thinking of building it and adding the donors, un painted as a display piece alongside my walker.
    I do like the vac head profile, Allan did an incredible job, just prefer the profile i made though.

    No, but yours looks JUST like it because I made them at the same time! I'm not gonna try to remember how I did that again, any time soon

    Will pop 'er in the mail soon!
