    Hi all! I'm Ed and I'm starting a part Judge build (Helmet and belt kit)
    Had a crack at the door breaching mine over the past couple of days, started with a 50mm resin blank but I wasn't happy with the results so I tried with nylon rod on my wood lathe

    Still not happy with the outcome as its about 3mm to small, but its a start

    Still needs painting, I used some brass filler in the resin to help see the lines when I'm cutting and sanding.
    This is an evolving prop and I'm only on v2 I'm gonna look around for some washers/discs of the right size to tidy up the top/trigger section

    I got a 45mm wood ball to turn into the flashbang but I was sent a 50mm one so it'll have to wait till next weekend.
    Also got some leather on the way to have a go at the pouches

    WP_20150401_18_04_31_Pro.jpg WP_20150331_21_42_13_Pro.jpg Its a pep build but I missed the eye section brace out hence the mass of bondo around the right cheek to rectify the flaring

    Made a little progress on the lid today
    WP_20150412_15_36_06_Pro.jpg
    Need to even up a lot of it especially the side panels as you can just make out from the rear shot
    Masked up next to the snotty lid I got this week.

    I had intended on doing the flash bang today but I've been sent the wrong size wooden balls again

    Nice work with the helmet....just watch those slight red corner curves, don't think they are that tight......I'm being super critical :D......It looks great so far and awesome work all round...keep going. That helmet was almost the death of me building it off a Pep file.........but it turned out cool, sold well and your's looks mighty fine;)...KEEP BUILDING!!

    Cheers Rogue
    I keep looking at the lid and seeing bits I'm not happy with so I've resigned myself to the fact its gonna take longer than I'd hope

    Thanks Gerry

    Cast some resin blanks yesterday and had a go at another door mine (blank was too short so I've prepped another) the size is getting better but there's still a way to go

    Old V2 on the right V4 tomorrow

    Lied! Didn't do V4 today, my balls arrived so I had a play with them instead.

    WP_20150421_16_01_21_Pro.jpg

    IDM flash bang on left (very nice, gonna put a light in this one) mine in the middle, turned the groove and button then used a knife for the light hole.
    It needs a small bit of filling on the bottom where it was sat in the lathe and fill the hole in the top then I'll take a mould from it

    Life took over so its taken till now to get moving on this again
    I messed up my moulds this week so I need to re do them, got some rubbish pulls of my flash bang but there better than nothing and with the slight bit of shrinkage in the resin they fit in the pouch sooooo much better.
    Pouch still needs slit in base cutting, re stitching and a new bigger top section along with a belt loop adding.

    Been sat in an office at work waiting for an alarm to go off with nothing to do for 5 hours a day,so I started playing with foam board
    Heavily based on the sec 2 Brit cit badge but in no way does there's any justice (really love that set)

    Front end parts ready to finish and glue, the barrel is extendable so I don't need to swap barrels for suppressor mode

    Got the lower receiver done last night, and did a test fit and a little light sanding to get parts in place tonight.

    I don't think he will be uploading the files any where, he did these as a favour so I don't have the right to say yay or nay sorry. I am working on my own version of the flash bang (my first 3D model) once I've got looking ok I'll post it on thingiverse to give a little back but as I'm only just starting with 123d its gonna take time.
    WP_20160114_17_46_49_Pro.jpg
    As you can see it needs work, for some reason I printed the top out of scale. The arm button is way to deep and there are other things that are pushing me toward a total rework, might go two piece as all I did with this one was take inspiration from the IDM version

    Parts put in place ready for fitting
    Top slide was printed faster than the other parts at .2mm instead of .09mm

    V1 sprayed up ready to be replaced by V2.
    V2's ready to start printing so I don't think I'll bother weathering this one
