  1. Just as a reminder ........ seeing them brownish does not mean they surely are from wood. There were black and also reddish/brown bakelite ones used that days. Wood was used too, and varied from fresh carved wood to nearly black due to treatment with oils and other stuff. I also have a Mauser Carbine from that time that is straight black, but not painted. Also the antislip carving was different by a wide range. I would suggest to look for real ones and choose what you like.
  2. Don't care to much for replicating a wooden look, unless you like it more that way. Many original stocks were made from Bakelit, a plastic. So onecolored in black or brown without woodgrain is not unusual on the originals back then.
  3. My tone is completely OK, in fact more than nice considering his insulting comments.
  4. Stop whining Corporal. I may not post here very often as i don´t agree to many rules and regulations and how some/many things are handled in the legion (maybe to to the fact that I´m more in the camp of collecting accurate props than into costuming) - but, nonetheless the forum is VERY calm at the moment, the people here ARE very kind and try to be as helpfull as they can. I assumed that you not only read and follow your own posts. If you would have done that you could (and probably would) have seen that plastic is the known material - and so next to every build here uses it. Most accurate is imho Wannawanga tracks (i use it for all my builds, blasters and lightsabers) from the Netherlands, but also Todds from the US is not a bad choice (only small differencies). This forum is a place full of info, but off course people need to read it to learn stuff.
  5. One short notice - rubber is maybe good for impact protection when trooping, but it´s inaccurate. Hard plastic is the accurate material.
  6. Become a empires governor/warlord, have your own imperial garrison, and take over and rule South Carolina is no option?
  7. You really do a great job, Chris. I hope it pays off at the end and you don´t sit on countless blasters.
  8. RPF? Can´t remember you from there - maybe have a link?
  9. You can wait for Chris/Field Marshall to bring his out.
  10. But it seperates the men from the wannabees. ;-)
  11. Ah, he´s still alive. At least when trying to keep customers, but dead silence to those who paid for EFX items loooong ago.
  12. Did i miss this on the RPF, or was it offered in the US? It´s one of the things i still need to find.
  13. The answer is simple. He has seen them, maybe even had them measured with calipers, but for sure they did not allow him to disassemble them and take a piece home. There is no way with the simple tools he was able to use in that days to reproduce their complex shape accurately (in a way it´s as good as he says, when denying that others might be better). Newer technology is easy able to do that job better from pics than, at his time, with calipers (or maybe he only used a ruler?), esspecially when someone does this as a fulltime job. So, nonetheless i don´t like him and his behaviour, i don´t believe his accuracy statements. I´m no costumer, i´m a prop collector - and if i would believe him i would buy his, no matter how much i dislike him.
