  1. Sweet Crisis quickly and easily averted! Can't wait to see it come together.
  2. Ha ha! I know the feeling. Rest assured this looking GREAT despite your concerns. As to suggestions how fine (spray area wise) will your media blaster go? If you can fine point control on it I'd look at it as two options: 1. Do like you said - strip right back and start the receiver again. A P.I.T.A but it'll scratch that OCD itch 2. Actually use the media blaster in a controlled 'airbrush' type way to create deliberate weathering in degrees to your satisfaction on the rest of the gun. The cocking lever slot isn't looking MASSIVELY weathered there considering it takes constant, repet
  3. Damn you're moving fast. And smoothly. Keep up the good work!
  4. OH. MY. GOD. I can't believe all this happened while I was AWOL! I can't believe you managed to discover those (heretofore unknown) vent slits! I can't believe you zinc plate them! I can't believe the original part was labelled CP30! I can't believe only ONE joke was made about that! Generally speaking I can't believe what I'm reading. This is truly amazing Andy and you should be soooo proud. What you (and the other Andy and Marv and others who chimed in here) have done has single handedly advanced the cause of prop replication, accurate costuming AN
  5. You guys did an awesome job! I was manning another stand all weekend so you didn't see me - but I saw you!
  6. Haha! See PM incoming!
  7. Zee one and only! (and no I'm not shilling for Disney now I just found this app and thought it was cool)
  8. There's a brilliant new iPad app that just came out for free this week called Star Wars Scene Maker that lets you build your own 3D Star Wars animated movies with music, crawl text, voices etc. I've only played with it for a second but it look like it has awesome potential for fun you tube videos. The app is free but of course the damn thing has in app purchases. (*grrr*) This is a copy and paste of the descriptive blurb: MAKE STAR WARS YOUR OWN! Become the master of your own Star Wars video universe! Create your own scenes, choose your favorite characters, control their actions and d
  9. Yes there is! Go out and buy some 18 gauge wire - that is the correct wire gauge for the original Sterling springs and I've yet to come across anyone who's found a ready made spring in that gauge easily available. Coat hanger wire is often referenced but you are right - it is just too 'hard' to wrap properly and even those with the determination to do it usually get bodgy results. Then hand wrap the coil around a piece of pipe the exact same width as the *smaller* part of the bolt i.e. this part: And make sure you get the measurements correct which is 210mm when uncontracted with a g
  10. The cool thing about making a working catch for the end cap is that you can actually field strip your sterling completely and accurately
  11. Yes to both! Looking awesome. Glad you found those links useful too!
  12. Oh that weathering is seriously sexy! So impressive
