  1. Hi all, I haven't been here for a few years now but some time ago I bought ANH TK bucket from Mike (TK-4510). It has never trooped and has been in my display cabinet with little sunlight since I bought it but over the last few years it has yellowed noticeably. Does anyone know what I can do to whiten it up again? Thanks
  2. I've got the full kit as well and would be interested in anything to attach it with.
  3. Just working on my Doopy Doos kit and I haven't found any details about how the Hengstler counter is mounted as the kit doesn't come with any instructions or tips to build it. I've seen some blaster builds with the counter mounted on a bracket that is then attached to the bottom of the scope rail but is this the way the film props were mounted? And were they attached with screws? Also how are the scope rails mounted? Is it a case of whatever works best for me as I have seen rails screwed on and others attached to the rear sight. As an aside I have never built a resin kit before. Is it possible to use screws on resin without cracking the resin at all?
  4. Thanks David. You see me around the trooping galaxy sooner or later (most likely later) when I can get the full kit together. My "stationed" in the St Marys area Where are you all located?.
  5. Hi all, Newbie here from the best city in the world. Haven't started trooping yet but I am working towards it and hope to do so soon when I can identify the best bits and pieces I need. Will write more later.
  6. I've got the full Doopy Doos kit and have been slowly working on it. I've got no plans for trooping with it at the present time but I am more than happy with it. This is my first full resin kit of anything and my first prop replica and I was surprised by the size, weight and quality of it. You may wish to replace the bolts at the front though as mine looked more like blobs of resin than anything else, so I cut the heads of some suitable bolts and put them in where the blobs were. If you are worried about the resin go for the Hasbro blaster and get the Doopy Doos upgrade set for it. There's not as much resin which shouldn't pose a problem like the full kit.
