    yep, taco products are the best. I've already got a sling, so just the attachments would be cool with me.

    Did I mention Taco products are the best?

    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Thanks!

    Sorry, but for clarification do you mean get the pre-order cash in or the balance after the pre-order (full payment)?

    Thanks.
