    Jediseth lightsaber with removable core

    Awesome job! This is a thing of beauty. One quick question, I notice on your drawing you've labeled "plunge switches" am I right in thinking these simply push the button on the core beneath (as opposed to being wired in themselves)? I'm looking to do something similar using a cheap, annoyingly...

    R5 (ish) Droid build

    Sorry, I haven't been getting any notifications about replies on this thread?! The drum was unbranded but I used this one if that helps? To be honest with you I would probably look to use a different one if I were to do...

    CHAPPiE Replica Costume

    This is great! I've made a couple of bits out of foam (mainly because I'm poor but also because I don't have any kind of workshop until I move so I have to create everything on my livingroom floor.)

    R5 (ish) Droid build

    1:1 scale imperial probe droid

    Amazing! Watching this one with great interest. Each layer you unearth when studying the reference material must bring a "what have I let myself in for?!" moment because that thing is full detail! Good luck, looking awesome so far. :thumbsup

    R5 (ish) Droid build

    Thanks everyone, I'm quite pleased with how he's turned out so far. :) Hopefully I'll have the remaining bits done soon so I can take some decent pics of the finished article.

    R5 (ish) Droid build

    Hey fellow nerf herders! I'm new to this forum so I thought i'd start off by sharing a few shots of something i've been chipping away at slowly since the beginning of the year. I came into possession of a 60L plastic drum and whilst it's incredibly useful for storing scraps, and generally...
