    Hell, I triple mine over so that the ends are not exposed where they can fray (though I heat seal them anyways) and it does really reinforce the snap, provided that you have the right post length to accommodate. But the double snap is there in case one fails, and to prevent lateral play from a single snap that is able to rotate. In some areas (like the arms), you want this for mobility, but in others (like the body panels) you definitely do not. The wingnut chart above is an outstanding starting point.

    I kind of like having the snaps able to rotate. And not even once has any of my snaps failed. But I use heavy duty snaps so that might help.

    Double snaps can be the difference between trooping and not, especially in areas that can take some strain as you can occasionally have them pull through the elastic.


    Personally I find that just folding the elastic over itself at each end where the snap sits works just as well and uses half the amount of snaps.

    He should have at least posted some pics. I have a similar E-11, and European demilling genrally means fewer cut parts and also more mobile parts than US. Anyway, this topic is about the Denix MG34. And for people who cannot use real weapons as base for their Star Wats blasters, this Denix replica is fantastic. 

    Indeed, various regional laws make it a mess. I could own a full auto AR-15 lower (which would be a machine gun in the US) without issues, but I can't own a barrel which is unregulated in the US but a firearm here.

    My gloves are rubber gloves, not cloth, and I already have cotton liners.

    The issue is that the latex itself is warped.

    I’ve tried heating it and reshaping it be it hasn’t worked.

    Ah, alright. Well perhaps more glue will keep them down. Otherwise I'm not sure. Hopefully you can reshape them if you try again. Perhaps this video has some tips

    Ah, wasn't aware that this is because of security reasons.

    Thanks for mentioning, Glen. :)

    Since your username is public, everyone knows what it is, and thus has 1/2 things they need to log in as you. All they need is to guess your password. Using the email which is not publicly shown, one would have to guess both the email and the password, making things much more difficult.


    It also brings us more in line with how "every other site" with a login works. Which is good in of itself. Consistency is good.

    You absolutely 100% have my permission to use these pictures as you wish.


    I don't have much more to add at present, hopefully I'll be having a meeting with the scanners mid week so there may be a bit of movement but ideally I would like to have these out there before the end of the year.





    I'm also really happy to hear of your plans to replicate these beauties! :duim:

  7. Tapatalk is a third party plugin, and the forum doesn't know if the changes will break tapatalk or not, which is why I've never recommended relying on it for your needs. The forum (when it works properly) renders really nicely in a mobile browser so you can always use that instead. I may need to check if there is an update to tapatalk that needs to be applied. 


    The double posting happens as a result of you pressing "save" more than once, probably because the forum is slow and you imagine that the first time pressed didn't register properly.


    As for the updates, there was a major update a few days ago, and another security patch after that. Server performance was in the drain and applying the upgrade was a challenge in itself but it's been pretty stable since.
