I told him about this and provided pictures. He imediately offered me a new pair for free. I declined the offer since it was no...

    Question for Acrylic Experts

    I haven't examined any of the bases that you are refering to but i can't imagine anyway that you can remove the acrylic stand from the mirror bottom in some negative way. If they are glued to the mirror you might want to try using a heat-gun/paint stripper to soften up the glue (as well as the...

    Sideshow for full size C3PO and R2

    Why is it that C-3PO looks fat? The R2 unit looks fine (too me..) but i would rather buy my own kit instead of that "version" of 3PO..

    Why don't more people use black resin?

    I figure it's because it's easier to see the detail (or bumps and bruises) with white or off-white resin. I mean.. it's pretty hard to spot a shadow on a black peice. Right? Or it could be the force of habbit. pretty much every one uses the ordinary white resin. on rare occasions the clear or...

    Lighting the AMT/Ertl: AT-AT

    Dang.. bummer.. Look.. wiring upp 1 or 2 leds is not that hard. If you can boil pasta you can wire a LED. But here are a few pointers. (Free of charge) The voltage of the battery should NEVER exced that of the SUM of the volatge of ALL the LEDS. So i'f you've got a 9 V battery hooked up to...

    Gluing ABS?

    If you do find ABS glue try it out first. Certain ABS glues have a tendency to heat up and can warp the plastic. The ABS glue for the FX Trooper kit does this if i'm not completley of the bend. And remmember.. always sand the surface you are going to glue for added grip and to remove any...

    My Screamin/Kaiyodo Boba Fett

    I started this before i hoped onto the RPF and been working on it on and off. I bought it for 500 SEk which i think is a pretty reasonable deal for a real kit and not just a chinese re-cast. Like i said. I've been working on it ever now and then and like my MSH Boba fett helmet i painted i'm...

    Non working Javelin prop

    That weapons system looks like it would be a whole lot of weight to pull around during, lets say a convention. Though it may look cool it may be a bit too combersume(spelling??) to deal with. Why not go for something more "light weight" and mobile? Like the Swedish AT4? Sorry for the shameless...
