    SOLD--Thank you!

    Sorry about that--I feel your pain, brother, believe me. I don't know how many things I needed/wanted that I've "missed by that much" over the years.

    SOLD--Thank you!

    Hi there, thank you -- I'm afraid this sold earlier today. I've changed the thread title to avoid further confusion.

    SOLD--Thank you!

    Greetings! Selling off an authentic Exactra 19 Bubble strip (I have the circuit board listed in a separate thread). I trimmed this one several years ago to fit into a Graflex clamp (see photos--Graflex NOT included LOL). It has some scratches from installation that do not affect optical...

    New Elstree Studio documentary with discarded Graflex.

    Did a bit more messing around as I was jonesing to finish my ANH belt hanger. I've used my Rebelscum bubble strip to finish this off. I just took a file and knocked off the edge of the strip and was able to get a tight fit. I can still close the clamp lever all the way but it's a fight to do...

    Vader SL finished and ready to ship

    Yep :) only when doing the dome tube I don't add a ring of putty on the inside edge of the tube --- or if I do I make sure it doesn't interfere with the fit of the two rings (if that makes sense). I've also been known to use BondoGlass around the ring.

    Vader SL finished and ready to ship

    Bummer! Once I have the tube placement down I tack in place with superglue then hit it with 5 min Epoxy. Once that has cured I go over the outside of the join with two-part putty to give it a more finished look and help lock it in place.

    I know, right? It's a pain to install and difficult to get the dome to sit properly -- but that's accuracy for you lol. On the helmets I've finished I've done many of them with the tube solution for that reason.

    New Elstree Studio documentary with discarded Graflex.

    Like a lot of things Star Wars it's a bit of futz around with it until it fits. I'm making a belt hanger with a TGS 2 and the fit is a lot looser than it is with my authentic Folmer. Here it is in the TGS. I had to center the strip so it would close evenly. I shaved off a bit of the top edge...

    New Elstree Studio documentary with discarded Graflex.

    I'm doing my new build this way (tore apart the old one). I've been experimenting with the bevel on the eBay bubble piece that broke.

    New Elstree Studio documentary with discarded Graflex.

    Received my D-ring and installed it (no issues with the rivets this time, thankfully). Chuffed to see that the holes I eyeballed for my home made d-ring clip lined up perfectly!
