Yeah, I PM'd Taco a few days ago about an ESB belt and the sling for this...Taco, Taco, Taco!!!
I can't wait for this all to come together!!!
Then I guess I'll let him handle it!!
I'll cast some resin blocks into the rear of the stock and the butt of the grip then, that way, you can just screw it in.
I'm gonna play it kinda safe, and close up the Preorder list. I've started to drag and burn out a bit, so I'm gonna tap the brakes a bit.
As I finish up the last bits of detail on the rifle, and start to get it cast, I'll do a few more updates, and get a rubber one made up. I've also had some help in making the internal armature even more rigid, and have elimintaed the heavy wobble we saw on the ROTJ. But we won't loose the 'squishy' factor, which will keep the rifle dropable during use.
A huge thanks for those who've paid their pre-order! I was able to get the supllies ordered quickly and efficently! Those who haven't paid, no rush, but be sure to sty on it!!
I'll pay as soon as my payment check comes in. Hopefully monday or thuesday
LIke I said, no hurry!
Full payment sent via PP. Looks incredible.
wow this looks great
THanks! Now if I can just get it finished!!! I've had nasty migranes over the last three days. My body is literally sore!! Ugh . . .
Don't die on us man, we want our blasters!
JK, take your time...I'm in no rush!
man if you need to rest yourself then do it. nothing is worth hurting yourself over. I'm in no hurry for my blaster. if you need to take a little break then by all means do it. and by little I mean like a couple hours just kidding. take youre time hotshot.
Just checking in to see if there has been any added progress? Hope you're getting the rest you need, thanks.
Yea, I took Sunday and Mondy off(did light house work, small paper prop projects, napped alot), and am pretty worried about my head. Five solid days of migranes/headaches. Went to the doc on Monday, he had no clue. Some blood works being done, and they recomend a CAT scan, but those will both tell me things I already know . . .
My blood's full of Wendy's and my head is very thick.
My masuess buddy thinks I've got a pinching nerve in my neck, and once she worked on my shoudlers and neck, the problem went away . . .weird.
Either way, I'm fine, and will stay on it. Frickin' drama . . . .
Anyway, the stock's all done, and has a nice wood grain texture, and I'm just touching up the stock greeblies on from and back of those mounts, and then we're done! As we get closer to the weekend, I'll update befoe we all take the weekend off.
Have you ever tried a chiropractor? I went through the same thing, terrible headaches that would bring me to my knees, my Doc thought I had a brain tumor, did an MRI, no deal, gave me some pain medicine, I thought "screw that" and got an adjustment on my neck, I haven't had problems since. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
I have a cure for all you aches and pains......2 words..... HOT TUB
Ours is broken . . . with fall fast approaching.
Nothin' huge to report, just finishing up all the fine detialing now, small filling here and there. I'll post pics once the final coat of paint's on here for molding.
Mostly getting the ROTJ caught up completely.
Oh, I do have all the MMP tubes cut, painted and done. They look pretty smashing!!
Oh, and I should also note, I'll be using a really cool reddish powder on the middle stock greeblie to make it look like red adonized metal.
Also, one spot IS OPEN.
If you're on the interest list, get your cash in so I can order the rest of the supplies (boxes, packing material, etc. all the project supplies are here)
If i don't hear from those above by the end pof the weekend(I'll PM you), I'll open your spot up for someone else!
Sorry, but for clarification do you mean get the pre-order cash in or the balance after the pre-order (full payment)?
Preorder balance . .definatly NOT the total balance.
Some have paid in full, but that was their choice (big thanks to them!)
Full payment sent. I hhave had some money problems lately, hence the slow payment.
Got your payment, thanks!!
I've PM'd the those who've not gotten there money in, or whom I've not heard from.
Be sure to let me know!!
One spot is currently open for anyone who may want to jump in!
A note on the rifle, a new ROTJ mold hase been made for future runs/orders, and those improvments have also made it over to the ESB rifle. I'm excited to update, and you guys won't be diappointed!
PICTURES! WE WANT PICTURES!
Ps: The date I paid on, was the 9th of a smileyface month according to your post xD
Edit: I WANT IT NOW! Im sitting here drooling on my keyboard and screen because of these rifles.
