    Softening Holster Leather

    Neatsfoot oil will soak-in and soften the leather, assuming it is veg tan leather. Once applied, you can bend and work the leather to allow the oil to work its way into the fibres. If you soak the holster in water, it will inevitably dry-out the leather even more, as some of the natural tanning oils will be washed out, so if you go the moulding route, i’d advise that you also condition the leather after.

    Painted and modified Rubies E-11 Blaster?

    Nope, they’re smaller than a standard E-11 based on a Sterling. Too many bits and pieces wrong or missing altogether. There are much more accurate E-11 kits or even fully assembled for not a huge amount more.

    Humperdingle's CFO ROTJ Shock Trooper

    I should probably put a couple of photos here of my (long gone) BF Shock trooper, due to the great Photobucket purge... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Excellent work, mate. Centurion shouldn’t be too far off! Try to get it done before you get UKG branded, as Centurion requires you to have no visible branding
  8. Well done again, Daniel. And yep, get your EIB application up here before you have a UKG brand to deal with!

    ISS member in New York...

    Hey folks, I’ll be travelling from Scotland to New York city next weekend. The missus has an itinerary of the usual touristy stuff for us to do but I’d appreciate any recommendations for Star Wars related attractions, cool shops and excellent pig-out eateries

    Ask Anna who painted short trooper’s battle buddy - they seemed to make a good job of that.

    Ungluing (SDS) armor pieces

    Right, gotcha. My SDS kit had butt joints on the front facing glued parts. The backs were all open with velcro fastening. curious that they would glue overlaps

    Ungluing (SDS) armor pieces

    I think it’s something like Stelmax 1985. Why are you trying to take bits apart? There may be an alternative?
