    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

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

    the resin one i had was undersized. it only stuck about 3/4" out of my pocket.

    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!
