    I've been searching the archives and am surprised to see that nobody has ever offered a machined aluminium version of the Singlepoint scope.

    It seems like a bit of a no-brainer, the only tricky bit being the clear cone and the rod.

    Has anyone offered a kit before and I just can't find it? Has anyone tried to make it?

    No machined replica, but RPF member trooper has offered THE best SP scopes/ -kits IMHO

    Don´t know if he´s still offering them, but it´d be worth a shot to send him a PM

    Alternatively you could try to find a MR SP scope, since quite a few prop-builder upgraded their ANh DH17 blasters with the real deal.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm really hoping for metal though, but at least I have a backup plan.

    if someone has a MR version, let me know.

    You can do 3D model then print it in foam and cold cast it in resin with some metal powder ;)

    I'm working on a 3D file actually. Maybe I can get it CNCed.

    Oh man - if something good comes of this and you do indeed get replicas out for sale somewhere you can bet I'll be in for a few! If it's something you haven't already considered I'd highly encourage you to make at least one of the piece parts available for separate purchase - the clear conical dome from the from end of the site. There are a lot of cast stunt props and Habsro DH-17 conversions out there very much in need of good, accurate domes - you'd have quite a market for that item alone. Count me in for sure!

    Here is the first print of the single point scope.
    I need to find the right screws to add and I need to make a mold for the top.
    For models that dont have the transparent top its good to go 4.
