    not the most exciting showoff thread, but here you go:



    built using the brak's buddy tutorial. i sprayed the black on though, rather than using tape.

    probably the most pointless update i've ever done to my suit, but i'm happy about it

    Re: new patterson shin tool

    Is it me or is the real thing much larger (even width-wise) than the resin ones that most use?

    It's much bigger, I had no idea they were that big.

    Well that's weird. The popular Darth Flan kit I recently sold matched up perfectly with the found part; i.e. direct cast.

    --edit, I never knew an "undersized" kit existed.

    i actually think it was just cut too short at some point. this is a pretty unimpressive resin kit, which was what got me thinking about the real parts. i may try to get the stir stick at some point too.

    the resin one i have matches up everywhere, but is about an inch and a quarter shorter than the measurements on the tutorial here.

    Both the stick and the squeegee are still sold.
    I've seen them online and at a local camera store. They're not cheap.

    Expensive here. Look for them on Ebay. I'd weigh mine, but I don't have a scale that is accurate enough. Less than a pound though!
