I know, I don't facebook, so I was pretty confused to the references. But it looks great, and I have little doubt Roman will be getting even more of my money. Do I really need a third V2? Apparently!
No primer required if you clean the surface correctlyHi Halliwax, I've been thinking a lot about this thread (which is great by the way) in preparation for my ISYHCANL build. Just wondering what your thoughts are on self etch primer? I was intending on using one, but having seen your results, I'm wondering if it's necessary? My concern is that Rustoleum don't appear to do a black SE primer, and I'm a bit wary of mixing brands. Also, there's the problem of having a visible cross section of the paint layer (not a problem on the black part obviously if I find a suitable brand, but might not look great on the copper part of the neck). Just wondering what your thoughts are? Do you think I'll be ok going on to bare aluminium if I rough it up a bit prior to application?
I designed a aluminum plug that is machined to the inside diameter of the starkiller v2. I actually had a local shop give me a quote on having 50 made. And was planning on doing a “plug” runAny news on an insert to add weight?
I have that written down somewhere, but never looked into it.
They have a website they just launched recently. Archive-X Paints, Star Wars Studio Scale Models & Artwork UKI have that written down somewhere, but never looked into it.
I wouldn’t mind trying it, any special place you can order them from? Love to try them and document it
Your very welcome, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!
Sounds great. Would it fit my builders kit version too?I designed a aluminum plug that is machined to the inside diameter of the starkiller v2. I actually had a local shop give me a quote on having 50 made. And was planning on doing a “plug” run
But my real job has taken up all my time, and I still have to open up a legit business account for PayPal..
My plug has recess for the coneknob and set screws that hold the starkiller v2 together. It’s still at the shop, but I might have some pictures of it at home
It’s nothing fancy, just a cylinder that slides inside that fits tolerance tight
