Im more excited now
Im more excited now
Art he was looking at putting wire into it to afix them to the MQ1
I think a bolt might make them be in too perfectly. I know it's probably just from having gotten beaten up over the years, but the shots where you can see them, they are crooked and uneven. The wire would lend itself nicely to that.
They come with ,like half the file still cast on to them all i did was heat the end up and pushed it through the plastic, and once i have a helmet worthy of these, ill do the same and then bend the end thats stiks out the other side down to holdem solid,
on that subject is there any pics of the pre pro2 interior in its early stages, before the interior was pulle out ? i really need one,
or at least is it know if it had the same workings as, say the esb helmet , (Is the ESB lid the only one we have pics of the compleate interior?
And yeah only the top half of the slots actually has the MQ1 behind them the lower side seams to have ,visor perspex behind them
Actually i dont know what he'll be doing for the resin ones but a bit of wire would work well,
I think they are a bit to small to but a screw in there and for it to be workable,
if he does make these avalible in metal like the ones i and a few other lucky people got from him, they will be worth what ever he decides to sell them as , trully one of the best castings ive ever seen

was actually going to put a cut the bolt tip off and phaser weld it to the back half of the nub, i bought small bolts for this, but not being able to tweak the nubs as shown in S1P's collage and ref pics, Art im curious as to how these are attached if you could shed light, it looks as if the nub sits on the mq1/BP, looking at S1P's top pic on his thread u can see the transistor at the top of vent so this is half of the mq1-backing plate (i did say backing plate, what ever it is in the above posts).
just some pics i was using for reference

thanks STG so far i only plan to do 2 versions metal as passed on to the other guys to trial and test and resin. 8mm stainless springhardned with a small loop for rentetion for the pure resin dipped as it sets, and so far as mentioned the stainless 8mm welded on the back of the CoCr castings, the other option was to maybe thread the casting sprue. i think the wire is the way to go as cheap as it sounds i reckon they would have heated the end pushed it through then either cut it or crimped,then glued or i dont think the file could have screwed in using the cutting part of it as its just to fine this number file the larger sizes the 70 and 90's sizes there would be no problem there, hoping Art can shed light here.

Im excited man spoke with Art on this yesterday and as far as I can tell from pics of inside the helmet the MQ1 does NOT hold the files but a seperate peice of plastic, the MQ1 is cut in half and where the files are is a piece of plastic not the MQ1 bottom half as it resides in the gauntlet with the keypad.
Also I spoke with Nathan and I just from the pics and jinto your gonna have to make ALOT of these. I know Im gonna want more for sure
I deffinately NEED one for my jetpack now too, more detective work has led me to see this for the first time on the ROTJ pack...

yessir I am got it covered, Im gonna grab some blue and red of that paint and see how it turns out, if not can u andonize the stuff u used? I may know someone who can do it...or powdercoat it? This is if the paint doesnt work out on it...as for the MQ1 in theory yes...the top is deffinately the MQ1 no paint on the backside and the lower half is black plastic molded to the curve of the keyslots...

The low melt alloy, yes can be colored but with the CoCr they have to be painted after which I'm sure the originals are as the paint is very easy to mark and as stated the paint after so many sterilizations brings them back to raw metal.

So Im convinced the ROTJ hero pack at least, was one of the prepro packs and would have a red 15 on it next to the stabilizer, need to do some mods to my pack anyhow, seeing a few things that have changed my opinion on certain colors...something to do while paint dries on the GMH hehe

[QUOTE=Evilhemmes;532828]cheers mate dunno about that much, all though there is a bit of work in these, but its all about the community, i have all intentions off running these, just see what some of the other champions here have to say.
Well ill pay 50 for another set , In fact let me put an order for one more set of metal ones ,
Jinto making them i thought i was?
MWAHAHAHAHHA My plan has worked , you have sent me 2 ,i know will cast them and make----- $MILLIONS
My retierment is sound
I couldnt make these if i tryed they are done with REAL metal cassting methods , when explaining the prosses to me once all i herd was bla bla bla crucible (bbecouse crucible is mentioned in a Star wars comic ) bla bla bla ,
Evil is the only one who can do these
Any ideas on when you are going to start selling these? awesome work! i feel like i owe you a beer or something...
I dont know if ive just been staring at to many fett pics but PP2 16a.jpg
Is it just me or does this image of the PP2 suit , taken for the Kenner pics seem to have a file in each key slot all 6 ?
Looks like it is just an added extra drwn on to the image , like the blaster bolt , so you can all relax
