  1. Welcome to FISD Jake! I am glad to find you here! Feel free to ask any questions you have; everyone here is happy to help out.
  2. Looks great! I love what you did for the bolt.
  3. Also welcome to FISD! Glad to have you!
  4. For higher levels—if you are doing A New Hope trooper—you will need the counter, power cylinders, and T tracks like you alluded being absent. Moreover it should be noted that the listing on Amazon doesn't seem to have a magazine?? So if you get this kit you will have to find one. There are plenty of options: I know Fieldmarshal has some, you can also find some excellent 3D files here for 3D printing as well (but if you are doing an all metal build, I'd recommend a real or metal replica magazine).
  5. Yeah, it has been a pain. For me the linked pictures would work if I payed their fees, but they are blurred because I don't: But it looks like in this thread the pictures are not linked at all. The best bet would to redo this thread with updated pictures–which would be a lot of work. I loved this thread when I started here; it was the main guide I used to build my kit.
  6. The problem is that when the thread was created Photobucket was used as the image hosting site. Since then they have changed their policies and whatnot. Thus pictures linked from there are now missing or blurred if you do not pay their fees.
  7. This looks great! I will be following this project.
  8. Sorry for the late reply. I used a brass and a satin black spray paint to achieve this look. I'll be posting a guide here on how I got the weathered look.
  9. Finally got it finished. Took too long. Here it is.
  10. Hello everybody! I recently purchased real M38 scope off ebay for a good price. As I learn more about this hobby I know that the best way to get better is through practice. Therefore I decided I would try my hand at molding and casting replicas of the scope. Here is the scope: It is a 1943 version and it is in very good nick. I began by cleaning the scope and building a little box for it out of foam core. Then I used my pottery knowledge from middle school It wasn't the smoothest, but it'll work. One thing I wish I did was add escapes for air bubbles at this point, but I didn't think about that until after I cast. Here are some pics. The mold itself is not the prettiest, but the detail of the scope was great! One thing that always bugged me about resin copies of scopes is that to make them believable you had to drill and clean the insides out and then add lenses. I have seen others here do this wonderfully, but I lacked the skill and patience when I first started out here. Tino will remember this. So what I decided to do in this case was to cast in clear resin. This way all you have to do is mask the lenses before painting and then pull them off afterwards. Here is the first cast: This is where I learned I needed to cut in some escapes for air and whatnot. But to prove this concept I painted this scope today to see how it would look. Note I didn't bother cleaning this casting up much as it was so defective. Here are the pictures: Let me know what you think! For my first ever silicone mold I am pretty happy, but I will probably make a new one eventually. Cheers!
  11. Absolutely fantastic! This must have taken you some time to get this level of detail. Great job again!
  12. Ah, the Princess Bride! This was very informational! I had no clue you had part in so many wonderful films.
  13. Awesome! I appreciate your attention to detail. It looks like all you need now are some T tracks and then paint. This is a quality blaster! Oh, and I like your stand for it too!
