    The fewer the better. I just wanted to cover everyone that needed one so that I can move one to another project.
    The resin has just been ordered.

    thanks

    If my so called "under-developed head" was able to come up with fairly decent Jango holsters, girthbelts, backplates, flamethrowers, and kid-sized gauntlets...then what's your excuse?

    Oh, and don't forget...I'm the guy that's currently repairing your Boba knee armors!

    Hey guys, bobafett669 was kind enough to remind me today that we need an update of this run. The mold is "tired" after almost 20 pulls, and is taking a little more effort to pull from. Based on the run list, #1-4 will go out tomorrow with #5 starting tonight. Depending on real-life obligations, I'm only getting to pull one backplate roughly every 2-3 days. I'll continue to plug away at them and update when I can.
    Any questions, let me know. And if the time frame isn't working for anyone and they need to be dropped from the list and refunded...no problem.

    Thanks
    Cruzer

    First post updated with shipping status.
    bobafett669 & WelderTim1208, yours should go out this Friday or Saturday.
    Haikaider, production will start on yours tonight.
    The last pull was next to impossible to get out, so these are the last that'll be pulled on this mold.

    Thanks guys

    Hi Rob, it would take enough interest in another run (approx. 10 orders) to justify the costs of making another mold. This mold has seen the last of its days and really was not made as effectively as possible. A solid silicone mold would be ideal in my opinion, but then we're looking at about $300 in silicone.

    However, there is a possibility that my backplate master is going to be molded this weekend by the Sci-fire crew for the purposes of making cold cast pulls. If so, I could probably swing a couple of regular resin copies from it, but I wouldn't want to do too many in order to maintain the mold's integrity for cold casting.

    Depending on the time frame, ( read - I curently am broke ) I'd be interested. I'm not entirely confident on how a scratch built one will turn out, even with using WoF templates.

    I would also be interested if you make another mold to do fibreglass ones again, especially if it was to coincide with the gauntlets so the postage was not too much to the UK.

    Cheers

    Yeah, most of the sintra or styrene scratch built backplates I've come across looked like those usually seen on ebay. Though very economical, they usually aren't very accurate.

    Your comment does bring up a good question. Would there be interest in vacformed copies of my backplate sculpt that are more economical? Unintentionally, I've only considered users of fiberglass armor, and failed to consider the many people who use some sort of plastic type armor. It would be good if I could meet the latter's backplate needs as well.

    I'm going to check my resources to see if I can even find access to a vacform machine that would be large enough.

    thanks for the idea
