  5. Hey Solids cool man I'm going to be vac forming everything so e I'd bhappy to sort out a kit for you. Yeah I thought it was one of the more successful stormtrooper variants out there. I think the captured a good look; still stormtroopery enough to look like a stormtrooper but something new. Ok mate be in touch when I've got a prototype out Cheers oota

  7. For anyone curious I have a build up thread here if you want to see my painful progress making up the first sterling http://www.swnz.co.nz/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&p=22357#p22357
  8. Hey all I was very fortunate this weekend to get access to a l2a3 sterling. I've been making some molds from the gun and am going for a milled aluminium barrel which is a nice way to make a replica. I've got a line on a mp40 sight and I've made some t track from a dlt project I started last year. This sterling was bought by the NZ army (back in the 80's I think) and is distinct in that is has an additional NZ army stamp along with the usual sterling stamps. I've never picked up a real sterling before it was a real treat. The patina on the gun was beautiful I can see why people collect these Anyway I'm mainly posting progress on sterling here http://www.swnz.co.nz/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1837 but I look forward to bugging people for details and information as I bring this thing closer to an E11! Cheers oota
  9. Hey there thanks! No it's based off the Jes statute and to a smaller degree the action figure. But it's basically my take on what female stormtrooper armour might look like in the OT era. There are a few kits out there now but I don't think it'll ever get approval cheers!
  10. gah sorry missed this post. Yup it's tamsyn who's making the bucket
  11. Thanks Neoakaj I think it's still Tk enough to look like a stormtrooper. My mates making a black one soon so we'll see how it looks complete
  12. Helmet! Here's a first go at the helmet. There's no real template to follow here other than "make it look like a tk" So I'm pretty happy with the results. This one was a bit franken-bucket at the back but I have fixed that. Also I think the face plate could be a bit lower and flatter to the bucket. I really like the scoops they do what I wanted them to: help keep the side tubes big enough and provide a more pinched look to the face. The hardest part I found now is getting a decent picture of what I'm looking at! C and C welcome as always
  13. I've made a handful of suits for people in New Zealand. It's hard to get a regular supply of ABS over here so I've about 4 or 5 different suppliers and different batches of plastic. So some of my suits seem to yellow faster than others. Mind you the UV's over here are nuts. Burn time in NZ in summer is 3 or 4 minutes it must be hell on the suits! But I have noticed that the suits pulled from straight ABS without acrylic capping have weathered really well and some of the acrylic capped has held up well too. I'd be keen to hear other people's experiences too.
  14. yeah it's a tricky one. The boots add a lot of height which helps elongate the figure but yeah if you were running around shooting at rebels you'd probably want something flatter!
