    Sep 3, 2010, 3:16 PM - C4 Replica Knee Darts #1

    Hi Guys (n Gals)

    I've spent some time looking at knee darts recently as I was asked by my friend to design some for his set of knees... so I went off and after a few alterations have come up with these as a final design.
    Let me know what ya think? these have a threaded back section to attach to the knee plates!

    Excuse the poor pics (I am no photographer!) plus, against the great FP knees look great for for scale! plus the cone is one of my replica found part parts.

    *The knee plates have not been drilled, so the darts will appear longer than when fitted*

    Looking good Gav

    Will have to give you a few photography tips some time.

    Realy like the ridges on the front section of the dart,lifts the part above anything I've seen before.

    You just like taking all my $$

    Gav will these be able to replace the FP darts and work with the holders??? It looks like they are the same length and once the knee is cut they would sit further in and all? Im pretty excited about these as the FP darts are great in resin but the metal will just add to the awesomeness....Im gonna have to say i need these and the other parts we spoke about

    Sorry I didn't catch this, these darts will have a female thread on the back so that they can be mounted through the vac formed knee and onto the resin insert (which I assume you have drilled to accept some kind of bolting method).
    I'm thinking of making one or two sets a little different, I will drill the internal bore all the way through and have 'no' threaded section at the rear... the reason is that if it 'were' some kind of hose fitting then the bore would go all the way through. I'll drill my knees as per regular fitting but hot glue them from the rear.

    I guess you'd have the option to either drill through for a bolt or just goop them in?

    could probably countersink a bolt into the holder and glue the bolt in
