  2. Tape will work well holding pieces in place while the glue is drying.
  3. AM or RT are best for the taller trooper, a few threads of info for you: Boots will a little more difficult for size 16, I would suggest trying to find a pair of Chelsea type boots and recolour white. You could also try Crowprops who do make to order, not sure if he goes up to 16 though https://crowprops.bigcartel.com/product/jhodpur-tk-white-short-boots

  5. I use a lot of free online audio converters, a few will allow you to merge audio files, dropping the sound level on an additional file sounds great in the background. Here are a few: Merger and some other tools (if you go to the right of the first audio track you can also disable the cross fade) https://audio-joiner.com/ Increase/decrease volume https://mp3cut.net/change-volume Trim files https://audiotrimmer.com/ Reduce background noise https://audiodenoise.com/
  6. Nice work, thank you for the research, it should help others in the future.
  7. I find you really have to make sure pieces are securely glued before applying bondo/filler, any movement before applying bondo/filler with crack, I ahd one bad area and used some JB weld as it is sandable and has held up well.
  8. Very nice, came out great, I would suggest a coat or two of a sealer, would just protect the paint from any dust or grime build up. Looking forward to seeing your next project ( you are bound to get bitten by the building bug )
  9. A great review, it's just a shame it took so long to get to you, this could have been due to Covid19 but there were some grumbles about Hellhounds as to communication and long shipping times for some time with many thinking they were no longer supplying blasters. Just looking at your photos a few things that could be improved is the air holes in the resin, a few along the right side T tracks, there is also the mold lines on the handle, under and top of barrel and top of front sight, also a bit too much weathering on the sight, should match the rest of the blaster. In saying that all round it does look like a nice blaster, hope you get plenty of trooping out of it.
  10. You could check the 501st legion thread here https://www.501st.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=28538&hilit=Chatter+background Some other links I've ran across may have something https://www.soundboard.com/sb/starwarsfx http://soundfxcenter.com/sound-effects/star-wars/0 http://www.galaxyfaraway.com/gfa/1998/12/star-wars-sounds-archive/comment-page-1/ Tie Fighter https://www.101soundboards.com/boards/10320-tie-fighter-sounds-star-wars Falcon https://www.101soundboards.com/search/ millenium falcon Speeder https://www.101soundboards.com/sounds/650409-speeder
  11. Looking good, you are a little close to the corners on the thigh ammo strip with the rivets though, won't be an issue for basic approval but could be mentioned at higher levels, always pays to check those reference images

  13. Are you using the "direct link" option, that normally fixes any issue, you need the .jpg or .png extension link not the abbreviated link. On computer you can just right click on the image in Imgur then select copy then paste directly into your post and it should show up.
