  1. Preliminary design and materials list Parts and pieces in the early stage Trial fitting with harness Strapping system I'll list everything I can remember as far as materials. -Framework: 1/2" aluminum bar. Its good for being light weight and being able to bend 90 degree angles without creasing. -Mounting plate: 1/8" PVC sheet suspended in the framework by "duck head" clamps and 1/4-20 screws and nuts. -Value sections, elbows and rigid tubing: PVC pipe and various fittings -Value knob: Scuba tank knob -Heatsinks: 1/4" expanded PVC sheet -Compressor (the large tube inside the heatsinks): 4" thin wall PVC pipe -Air filter cover ( large flat part on the left side): 0.60" styrene sheet -Air filter cartridge (boxy part on left side bottom): 1/8" expanded PVC sheet -Gas canisters: Empty sunscreen cans -Burger box (blue grey box on lower right side): Vacuformed HIPS The respirator was expanded PVC sheet cut and layered up to be virtually hollow. Styrene was added to the outside to give the details. Maybe this weekend I can get him to suit up and we'll make a video showing off the storage space and compartments.
  2. Sure, I can post some construction photos if that will help. We were at Megacon (for a whole 3 hours). The Anovos guy was chatting up my dad about his kit so that was probably us.
  3. This my dad's armor. He got his Anovos TK back in February and already has it approved. We did this as an noninvasive mod to that armor. He ordered a 2nd back plate and we mounted the respirator backpack to that. He's got backpack straps for comfort and all the straps get hidden by the breast plate. Instead of wasting unused space he can carry essential items in the backpack along with the receiver/speaker for his wireless mic system. The pack with speakers weight about 8lbs. Its made from PVC and a lot of expanded PVC sheet and other light weight plastics. We tried to keep the weight down. The helmet respirator attachment is also expanded PVC, bolted through the helmet where the mic tips were. He can unbolt it and go right back to a normal TK.
  4. Buy a Rebel nerf blaster for $17-$20 and cut it off, slap it on and paint it. There's your single point scope. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Star-Wars-Rebel-Trooper-Electronic-Blaster/19529524
  5. http://www.flickr.com/photos/31058000@N06/7014940151/ The 1-1/4 pvc for the barrel shroud is a bit big, which makes that template incorrect. I printed it and tried to wrap it around my actual MG-15. 1) it was too long 2) the diameter was too big. 1" diameter, thin wall aka schedule 20 PVC pipe is the closer match.
  6. I'm looking for the just the plastic ammo belt and canvas portion. i can make my own holster but I'm looking for those 2 parts. let me know if you have any to sell.
  7. next you'll try a straight PVC version and learn it's easier and requires waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay less filler and puddy.
  8. Israeli women? They inherited a ton of sterlings once Britain left Palestine. Also note the front sights. They look like the style used for the replicas which later were the basis for the ROTJ version. Maybe that's why no 2 E-11s looked alike, even the sterlings didn't look alike.
  9. I hope you didn't pay the $300 for the ima parts kit. Sportsmanguide and a firm out of colorado both have them cheaper. $150 and $125. Agreed on the gold tuxedo analogy. Late model Canadian made sterlings had that same look as the MGC version.
  10. E-11 = $170 + $20 for shipping in the continental US. DC-15S = $120 + $24. Shipping is more costly because the blaster's length requires a longer box and the weight is almost double that of the E-11. DL-44 = $60 + $12. MG-15 or RT-97C. $250 + shipping. This is an instance inwhich shipping will always be calculated first then a total invoice sent to the potential buyer. The reason is because of the blaster's size and weight. Shipping: The shipping is an umbrella charge to cover the box, packing and shipping but most times a partial refund is given because unless it's going across the entire country it rarely requires $20. Although if the buyer is willing to wait for an exact total shipping can be calculated to exact amounts. International shipping: Only Express mail will be used 1) because it comes with tracking and 2)because it has the fastest shipping times. International sales have included; Finland, UK, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Taiwan, Japan, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand
  11. youtube video on blasters In case people wanted more info.
  12. I still watch that video periodically and think "if only..." I came across it in 2008 as I started research on E-11s. Glorious!
