    May 14, 2007, 4:04 PM - Interest in possible Zam rifle scope and greeblie. #1

    Hi Guys,

    After being approched by John and Beks to make thier Zam rifle scope and greeblies, I've been asked by other members if I can do the same for them.


    The problem being is the time it takes to machine such complex angles etc, pushing the price high, and with the dollar being weak it makes it worse for you guys in the states.

    So I considering producing a run of these in resin.

    I would need a decent number of people to put thier names down to make this a realistic project.

    Price wise would be approx 40 ( $80 ) and that would include the scope, scope holders, side greeblie and smaller greeblie.

    Ive attached some pics of Beks parts, but Ive since made modifications to make them more accurate. (bigger scope ends for example)

    I'm willing to go either way... Sure I'd like to save some $$$, but if there aren't enough people to make it worthwhile to make a run in resin, I'm willing go with the original version.

    I just want greeblies and a scope!

    Quick update.

    Made the side greeblie. Ive done it in two parts for ease of casting.
    It's in silicone now, so will do a test pull tomorrow.

    Fingers crossed as it's got alot of radial detail, just hope theres not many air bubbles trapped.

    Starting the scope today. 8)

    The scope came out great too!

    Need to make the small cylinder that goes next to the greeblie, and the quadrent section for the front of the greeblie and it's done.



    Is there still interest in these??

    what about doing up some scope mounts as well...to make the whole package complete? hate to have something look that nice and have mounts that are so so

    as far as interest...waiting to hear the cost first....i know that you had the pieces for the molding already and im familiar with the cost of the supplies now that i did all my greeblies for the costume...so ill have to wait and see...if the price is right im most definatley in for a set

    JD,

    I didnt have the parts to mould already.

    I made Johns/beks as a one off.

    It was only because of members here contacting me about making them a set that I thought I can do it cheaper for everyone.
    I bought the material and made the scope and greeblie from dimensions I worked out when making Johns/Beks.

    I already have resin in stock here, but not silicone.

    So basically, I have done all this work for you guys, as I will probably only just get back what Ive paid out in time and material.

    John, If that's what everyone wants, then epect a call from me soon buddy. Thanks for the offer. :thumbup

    glad you could do the work for us for sure dude! dont take my comment as saying that im trying to lower your return by no means! your stuff looks super and im so in for it if i can afford to do it...still working on gauntlets, hand guards and a few small issues for dcon...not sure if i can afford to upgrade my rifle as of yet....hopefully youll hang on to the molds for later runs if some of us cant get in on this one...
