  1. Well, yes and no. It’s slow going, and I’m working on it, also working on a Scout which will probably get finished first. I’m still motivated… Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hmmmm… I hate to hear this. Indeed, what a shame. [emoji853] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I hope I didn’t just recommend him out of his dream of becoming a TK! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I wouldn’t worry about what the count of Vader’s there are or who wants you to be what character. You do what YOU want to do. It’s your hobby, costume, money and blood sweat and tears! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I realize that. Misunderstood that it wasn’t intended to be my actual advice to him, but my opinion on what I’d like to do. Sorry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I respect that, Brother. You do your thing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. If I were that size, I’d be all over a Vader costume! [emoji54] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I am a new guy who started this journey last year about this time. At first, it DOES seem a little daunting and intimidating as to how to really get into this hobby. Things seem a little secretive and somewhat mysterious as to how to “join the family”, if you will. I get that! HOWEVER, there are numerous resources online and throughout social media that are readily available to DO ONES RESEARCH and learn for yourself what to do and how to do it “properly”. There’s no question that, “you get out of it what you put into it”, as it should be. I’ve learned a lot from the guys here at FISD and all have been friendly, receptive and very helpful! They clearly want me to succeed and their actions and attitudes to that end are obvious. I, too have an AM armor kit that I work on slowly but surely ,as well as a Studio Creations Imperial Scout costume. I’ve learned some new skills and have come a long way and will be completing both for submission soon. My advice is to stick with it, put in the research time, ask a lot of questions, start a build thread with lots of photos and take any criticisms constructively. You’ll have a very nice set of armor that you will be proud of! Welcome to the Empire! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Dan, what a great and honest review! Nice work, my friend. I think you were more than fair in revealing your story and laying it all out there. I'm sorry you had such a long wait, but your blaster is VERY nice and should serve the Empire well. One thing I've noticed since I've seen several photo layouts of the Hellhounds E-11, is that each one is pretty unique. They are, after all, a sculpt, a paint, a weather job and a work of art. They aren't massed produced and every one the same. The two I have are very similar to yours, (and I see some recent improvements) but different as I would expect. And not at all in a BAD way! Your E-11 appears to have more gold weathering on the scope than mine for one comparative example. I still need to try and get him to send me a Magazine release mechanism for one of mine that didn't come with one, then I'll be happy with both of mine. Thanks for sharing your experiences! I truly hope Hellhounds Props LLC improves some things with customer communication. Except with a similar experience to yours, I'm a happy trooper (wanna be).
  10. My local hobby shop tells me that Testors/Model Masters paints are being discontinued. Permanently... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. No, these are just PLA. I’m a beginner and it’s all I’ve played with so far. I suppose ABS would offer better strength and material compatibility. I envision just gluing these on with E6000. I’d propose we get a team together and get this idea developed, tested and perfected. Offer the .STL files on forum here for anyone to use for free. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’m trying to play with some 3D printed closure “housings” to help mount, align and protect the magnets. One design idea: I suck at CAD design and might need one of you as a CAD jockey volunteer to try some other design ideas... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. No hassle, Brother! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Initial PayPal sent November 12th for Original order (ESB E-11). At the time, He said, “about four weeks” I had inquired SIX different times Then I hear February 4th he sends me a note via Facebook Messenger saying that he’s made a mistake and made an ANH version E-11 instead. I ask him about selling in me that one for the $300 I paid for the ESB one and asked if he would make another ESB at a discount. He suggested half off his fee of $300 , so $150. I agreed and he said it would be soon. Feb 12th, And I just sent him the money for the ESB variant place. Still no original delivery. Finally Feb 16 comes around and I get delivery of his original E-11 (ANH)!!! Didn’t get my other ESB E-11 until March 9th with additional inquiries and a threat to demand refund and report him to the FISD.com guys. Then another few weeks for the D-rings to come in that he left off by mistake. ***Hope that clarifies and answers your questions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I did just that AND went ahead and paid his 3% fee. I told him I did this (goodwill) but it still took a looooong time and 1001 excuses before I got mine. I really doubt that Etsy orders will get you a blaster any faster, but probably just better buyers protection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
