    ANH Luke HERO Macrobinoculars

    Firstly big shout out to Jerry @trooper & Scott @scottjua for their help way back when I was collecting the cameras.

    I commissioned Troy @Seneca to build this amazing prop for me, we went with slight weathering on the high edges and non-painted Lens.

    Troy also custom built the Wedge, the Reveal Board from an Exactra Calculator and EL Sheet in the Viewer Hood with the Bantha Image from the movie, which looks really cool and gives a wow factor when friends look at the prop, most people cant believe the weight and details of this prop.

    Did you get the scopes for reasonable prices or did you pay the going rate for them?

    I hunted the M19 for $58 which was an amazing find, I picked up the Periscope from a family which had it stored since WW2 I posted photos on page 1 post #15 and the other M38 & M47 scopes were between $50 to $110 each.

    Vintage Folmer Graflex Corp New York 3-Cell Flash

    Awesome day, I received this amazing minty Vintage Folmer Graflex Corp New York 3-Cell Flash today, big thanks to Jerry trooper for his help as I was GEO Blocked, Jerry said on my OCD scale this is a solid 9.9 not sure you can get better lol!!

    The stamping alignment is slightly off for the ESB Wampa Cave so I may keep this one for display and keep hunting.

    Some days are just better then others :D

    ya, looking this over I don't believe it ahs ever been used, there are no signs that a reflector was ever put on, nor are there any scratches on the pins that a cord had been put on.

    Aunt Beru's Kitchen Jug - Prequels

    It took me sometime to research & find the accurate Jug but I was able to hunt the Water Filter Jug here locally which was used as the Jug in Aunt Beru's Kitchen in the Prequels, which were partially filmed here in Australia.

    It appears the blue cap was either painted white or recast in white plastic.

    1980's AS Handwheels

    I recently hunted these 3x sets of 1980's AS Taps & Handwheels in nice condition from a really lovely lady who was doing a renovation, they are not the accurate 1970's AS Handwheels used on the ANH Obi Screen Saber but I think would still make a nice display piece or even as some do a nice vintage handwheel whilst looking for the 1970's AS Handwheel.

    That looks like a fairly easy leather prop to replicate.
    There is a line of stitching on the side, what's going on inside of that thing? a divider?

    Vintage M95 & Swiss Pouches for the Luke ANH Belt

    I recently hunted what I thought was a Vintage Black M95 Pouch in a mixed listing, only to find out when Jerry trooper received the pouches he thought it was an accurate Vintage Brown M95 Pouch that some one had used black boot polish on it and with some cleaning & leather polishing it could be restored.

    Before:

    92.jpg

    92.jpg 93.jpg 94.jpg

    The restored Vintage M95 Pouch looks awesome along side a Vintage Swiss Pouch I hunted sometime back, what could I do after all that elbow grease these have gone to my good buddy Jerry trooper who is planning to build a Luke ANH Belt to go with his Luke HERO Macro's, which will make a very cool vintage display (y)

    Any chance we can get some shots of the restored Ammo pouches from the back and bottom? Also with the flaps open to get an idea of what's going on with the buttons?

    Vintage AS Handwheels

    Firstly big shout out to Marcus kurtyboy & Simon Sidewinder this was a team effort to put this together & I could not have organised without their help (y)

    Recently hunted set of AS Taps & Handwheels the Cold Handwheel is in nice condition with the Hot Handwheel having some minor chrome flaking, they should clean up nicely with some CLR, unfortunately the Caps were missing but luckily I have extra Vintage H & C Caps or as my buddy Markus OdiWan72 told me the AS Handwheels without the Caps can be used for a Tunisia Obi Saber.

    NOS Vintage Veron Avro 504N R/C Kit

    I recently hunted this awesome NOS Vintage Veron Avro 504N R/C Kit for an absolute bargain given the prices I have seen on EvilBay, big thanks to Jerry trooper for storing this huge kit.

    The Vintage Veron Avro 504N R/C Kit also has the same parts as the Veron Hawker TOMTIT R/C Kit, which were used on many of the well known O/T props.

    Vintage Minolta Auto-Spot 1

    I hunted this pair of Vintage Minolta Auto-Spot 1 over the past weeks, which are used to build the Yavin Scanner.

    All parts for the Yavin Scanner were recently identified by 3DImpact in the following thread, which was an amazing piece of research & hunting.

    Yavin 4 scanner (ANH) - all major parts positively identified

    Now to hunt the Arriflex 35-IIC Motors (y)
