I appreciate everyone sending kind messages for my current loss. Now is the time I start getting back to life and trying to recoup what the last few years have cost me.
I am not sure where to put this, so if it needs to be moved let me know.
I am setting up my shop this week/weekend again. I will be doing Sidearms, Holsters, EE3's (reinforced and I think im ready for ROTJ as well as my ESB), HIC's and possibly control panels for the HICS.
HICS are tricky because the rubber doesnt last long once I order it. Shipping costs have gone up considerably for the hics' as well, but I know some of you want them. The panels especially are difficult because they almost all end upw ith thin spots.
I can thicken up the panels on the inside to prevent this, but they will use more plastic and not be acurate on the inside (but that part is never shown) and they will be mroe difficult to trim in certain instances. So some feedback will need to be done in that case. This piece in particular though has to be kept in mind that they WILL come out thin. They will warp a bit when shipping. (Can be heated and bent back) They will need to be trimmed. Why so difficult? Heres something most probably dont realize. The movie prop likely had 1 real panel, and 7 bricks, fully filled, solid resin panels. I doube they made a press mold for the rest of the panels, thus why they are not lit. Because they are solid. Just a guess though.
This all being said I will start getting lists together for who wants what. If I could get a volunteer to compile a list for all items wanted, I would be willing to trade a a sidearm, holster or EE3 kit (minus stock) for their help. This would entail monitoring this thread for me, and getting everyones name as follows from within this thread and taking the PMS for the items. It will be work. It will need to be updated every day. But if anyone is willing to do it for me, it would help me get back into the swing of things. If not, it will just take me a little longer to get rolling.
Once lists are compiled I will attack the lists one at a time and make sure everyone gets what they want.
Thanks for your patience. Please refrain from pm's unless you can not post in the cargo hold.
