    Hi

    Just wanted to share my re-arranged glass-cabinet(s) plus the acrylic covers I just bought for my lids.

    Not shown is my blaster wall (which will be totally redesigned next week :D), the cabinet with the vintage action figures, my Vader 1:1 and some other items I have stuffed into the corners of my overcrowded office.

    Hope you like the setup...(sorry for the crappy pics :$)

    Seriously, the collection looks great...it looks like a collection of artifacts from a very interesting life.

    Very cool.

    I see you have way too many kobold and graflex flash units, lol.

    Where do find your Vader display cases?

    I "found" them at a manufacturer, who does custom display cases :lol

    Seriously...I had them made to my specs. 40x40x40 cm ea.

    That's a really nice looking episode I gun on the top shelf. Is it real metal?

    WHERE is that darn cat ? Just picked quite a few of her hairs off my pullover :lol
    But I can´t find her in the first pick ? Sneaky little 3.tch she is .

    And the Clone Trooper found his place where he stands at the moment thanks to the nagging another friend and me did at the little private prop party we held yesterday night at Markus´ place :p Looks great, doesn´t it ?

    I am really thinking about getting me a few of those acrylic cases...

    Man, you are looking at the BlasterMasters collection, there is (almost) no place for resin guns in his reality ;) Its based on a real FWB C-55, I have its sister gun, all additional metal parts (scopes, rocket, etc.) coming from a very small run that was done a few years ago. I think there are currently only about five examples with real metal parts known to be in collectors hands outside the LFL archives (I think only one or two hero Naboo S-5 Ascension guns were built for the movie, with the rest being resin casts, since the base gun runs for about 1200-1400 Euros). And Markus´example is IMO the most accurate, since my example e.g. has a slightly different marking and a slightly differnet grip on it, representing a mix between the stunt and the hero.

    Markus. . . I have said it before, and I'll say it again.
    You have WAY too many props. The mass of all your props is eventually going to create a black hole, and everything will be sucked in.. :lol

    In order to help save the world, I will store a couple of them on the other side of the Earth. . . I think the Boba Fett pre-pro and a Kobold would be just enough.

    J/K, as you know. I always like seeing pics of your tremendous collection.

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate the kind words :)

    The "TK-WILSON" helmet is "Sev" from Republic Commandos :lol

    Eric:
    YOU are fully responsible for not being able to be near your part of my collection.
    It was YOUR decision to go back to the states, right .? ;) :lol

    Zorg:
    The cases were ordered through a german website (www.sora.de) and come unassambled. They were custom made to my specs and cost about $80 ea.

    Hey Michael:
    Thanks for giving me the chance to put your marvellous gift in the right spotlight :lol
    I have to disagree reg. the S5...while its close, it´s not the most accurate one out there, since I made some compromises during its assmebly ;)

    BTW: The cat is in the far right of the first pic in the lit bathroom, watching my steps while I took the pics of my collection :lol

    I did the exact same thing yesterday.-Rearrange the collection that is. My wife and I went to IKEA so we picked up some new shelves. Don't worry, I won't post any pics in this thread, not to hijack ofcourse. Looks great. I especially like all the flashes in the one shot. Pretty cool set up.

    They´re not glued but screwed together.

    Check http://www.sora.de/703060.pdf for additional informations.
    You should be able to order directly through their site, even if outside of Germany.

    If you need any help, feel free to drop me a line.

    Just put up the third blaster panel (sheet metal) and re-arranged my blasters as well.

    I tried to have most of the smaller blasters on the single panel, while the bigger guns are/ will go on the large display.

    As you can see there are quite a few empty spots, but these will be filled up over time. Still missing (some of them already on my workbench):

    ESB DH 17
    ROTJ DH 17
    ESB stunt E-11
    Zam Vessels rifle
    GG blaster
    ROTJ Han DL44 V1+V2

    Hey Cal...check the glass cabinet in my first post ,)

    Your blaster is displayed along with the microtorch and a DC.
    AND........it´s got the hose and the flask with leather sling :)
    (Thanks Marc. ;))

    Gabe...TK-WILSON is always cracking up people :lol
    Maybe I should repaint the lid, even if SEV from the game RC looked that way :rolleyes

    Yep, but they´re just lookalikes I found at a fleamarket here in germany.
    I also bought a pair of SWANS googles, thinking these would be closer, but still no cigar :unsure

    PS...Check Ebay, there are always a few white goggles with yellow lens up FA.

    It is in fact a BS blaster with some kind of DH17 muzzle.
    I found this blaster on ebay and loved the design so much...I had to buy it :)

    I like the satin silver metal look: clean.

    Q: is that a Sterling Para SMG?
    Q: when are you going to cast that HK so we can make Lando's pistol?.


    Very nice indeed.

    Hey Mike

    The sterling is a regular L2A3 kit I bought through IMA.
    I have another one -not shown- with uncut receiver, that´d I´d like to convert some day in the future.
    I don´t plan to mold/cast the P9S, since there are cheap airsofts out there, that could be converted ;)

    Cal

    The glas-shelf for the action figures was purchased through a catalogue (sp?), about 5-6 years ago. It cost me about $250 :confused

    Don´t know where to post either in my showoff thread or this one (which I consider a WIP-thread :lol)

    I had some time last weekend and worked on:

    - Stunt ESB E-11 (scratch-building the greeblies)
    - Proceeding with my ESB DH17 (building an all-metal grip-frame)
    - Trimming an X-WIng helmet kit
    - Priming an ESB Vader chestbox, attaching the coinslots
    - Preparing to work on a IG-88 blaster-rifle

    I´ll try to post some WIP-pics next weekend.
    I´m soo excited :D

    Here are some additional pics of my "easter-projects" :)

    I´m very sorry for the very dark pics but my cams flash isn´t working anymore, as is the light setting :cry

    The ESB stunt E-11 is based on the su ones stormtrooper is offering, but even if I can´t afford one, I wanted to add it to my collection.
    So I decided to build one and planned it as a quick and dirty project, not supposed to be accurate, but close ;)

    I decided to idealize it to a degree, hope you like.
    Still have to add the rectangular greeblie to the left side.
