    The Wand Company TOS Phaser Upgrades??

    Eh, it's just a different gray than what Lost in Trek used. The lighting is definitely playing a huge role in the way both Phasers look, as well.

    Dann's All-Encompassing Lightsaber Thread!! - (Latest) Rylo Reveal Cave Scene Electronics Mods

    Possibly, yeah! Shoot me a PM when the parts come in, and show me some pics and such. I should be able to tell you from looking at them whether I can do them or not.

    The Wand Company TOS Phaser Upgrades??

    I did most of the same upgrades as Lost in Trek, to mine. I didn't replace the nozzle or any of the metal parts, I don't think. I just polished what it came with. The replacement Stapleton grip makes a huge difference, as does the paint. I couldn't find the exact right Zynolyte primer, though...

    Oh man, yeah the knurling tool didn't grab correctly on that locking ring. I'd tell Field Marshall about it, maybe he can send you a replacement locking ring? Nice job with the finish though!

    What eethan said. It's looking good in the pic, but hard to tell without natural daylight and without actually being there. You'll definitely want to polish at the end, regardless of what you use, I agree.

    DL-44 Builds - Real Parts ANH, ESB - MGC ROTJ, FM Greedo

    Just some REALLY tough polished-semi, or straight-up gloss black paint was used on the originals, from what I can tell, with the three I've had. A couple good ways of getting a close match: -Paint with Alclad's Gloss Black Base, let cure 24hrs or so, then burnish w/paper towel -Paint with...

    I didn't say anywhere that I was selling the Yun hilts, but I'd be happy to make another and sell it to you! In other news, I've been working on David's Rylo Reveal, and while I haven't tackled the crystal chamber area, yet (need to disassemble and rebuild and glue everything in that area), the...

    Tom's MGC DL44

    I'm so glad you're going with Hoth! I was gonna suggest it, but decided to keep my mouth shut and not try and sway you, besides, it seemed you were set on a ROTJ version. Dunno who did the grabs, but the cap could always be recessed on the inside, I suppose, or perhaps the screws were added...

    Advice on a durable Clear Coat for Flash Hiders?

    Yeah, do what Cameron said. Heh. Do a few coats and give it time to cure when you're done.
