    Re: ROTJ Recipe

    Hey Sidewinder when do we get to see the rest? And are you gonna sell the ROTJ kits (cooling vanes, rings, greebles, ect.) to go with your Webley kit?

    If enough people would be interested, then probably.

    Yeah, I was thinking you could even sell "resin" cooling vanes to keep the cost down. I don't know, just an idea.

    Re: ROTJ Recipe

    most of the guttering pipes (looks like them in your photo) in the US are rectangle/square (at least here - although I havent really looked hard yet) so the dia of pipe, and the pipes are usually much thicker than the uk types, so you supplying the pipes would be a great start/addition (hint, hint)...

    That's what I'm sayn! If you make a "complete kit" to go with the kit you already offer, I think you would probably get alot of interest.

    Re: ROTJ Recipe

    I've done some aly blocks for the scope to sit on and am turning a biggish piece of aly for the muzzle based on pics of the real one.

    Are lathe motors supposed to smoke??

    Regards pipes and the ROTJ, I would do the muzzle/barrel/T fins all as one piece so it could be slipped on over the webley barrel.

    Pic now added - it's almost too good to paint!

    Re: ROTJ Recipe

    I'm thinking of doing a casting of the whole lot as one piece, including the Webley bit seen in the pic. That way I could cast up just the finned/white bit or the whole lot depending on what people want/have already.

    There is a handy layout diagram of the rib position on the barrel that I used (Ta whoever). Except it shows the front scope block replacing a section of one rib, whereas I believe it should go between two ribs. The photos of a real prop back this up.

    Ribbed for your pleasure (Scope blocks not fixed in place.):

    Wow, that nozzle looks great... I see what you mean about not painting it, but the natural weathering (when it get's scratched) on it would look cool...

    Re: ROTJ Recipe

    Woow, looks awesome.

    Since I recently got the Webley kit from ebay, I was wondering if you will offer casts of the barrel, the scope and the scopeclamps too.

    Re: ROTJ Recipe

    Scope rings are molded, working on the barrel etc. That scope is just a cheap 4x20

    Re: ROTJ Recipe
