  1. Here is what I have so far: — Beta Project Airsoft from Evike. (I am not sure if that is the exact make but all the details look the same. ) — Element M300A Flashlight — Visually accurate Piccadilly scope rail (for the flashlight) — DoopyDoos Scope — Field Marshall replica power cylinders.
  2. Ok, I will admit it...I am more of a Star Wars prop guy than an armor builder. And I am very passionate about accuracy. In the quest for the perfect R1 E-11, I have sourced most of what I believe to be screen accurate — Airsoft Sterling, Flashlight, DoopyDoo's M38 Scope, Power Cylinders...all but two things the Hengstler counter and the t-tracks. I am up in the air on the counter (real or resin?) and most the t-track out there does not have the right profile or is made from rubber...but, I think I have stumbled upon a t-track option that is VERY close to screen accurate. A t-track that has the wide and tall center spine as seen on the R1 blaster. Now there is one issue. The supplier is in the UK and, though I am still waiting to hear back from them, it looks like they may not ship to the US. Would there be — A: Enough interest from you all to order a quantity of this. B: Someone in the UK willing to be the middle man... I 3D printed a sample based on the dimensions supplied by the manufacturer, mockup attached. ------------
  3. Very interested in seeing the finished pieces!
  4. Any updates on this? Curious about purchasing a few of the STL files for personal use if available!
  5. I have two extra sets (six per set) of cam buckles for the 'bed roll' PM me in you are in need of them.
  6. No other option yet huh? Nothing wrong with Jim's necessarily, I am just surprised that it is the only one. I may still go the Sister Margaret Tanktrooper direction and see if I can match the fabric to make the ribbed knee detail myself.
  7. For anyone looking for the brown in a Spray Paint form factor, I tested nearly every widely available brown against the Vallejo "Dark Rust" suggested by Paul. Rustoleum Satin Espresso is a nearly exact match.
  8. I am also working on a 3D printed Shoretrooper (though with different files), I am curious if you have though about the shin/lower leg armor yet? I am worried that the PLA will not flex enough to allow my foot to slide through.
  9. What layer height are you printing at? Looks super fine!
  10. I am starting to research a R1 TK build and am looking for a super accurate undersuit. For the undershirt, I was thinking about going with a Sister Margaret's Gasket Emporium Tanktrooper shirt (not necessarily accurate but nicely made), but they will not make the pants, and I want the ribbing material to match. Maybe if enough of us ask about the pants they will start making them??? I am assuming that the Stormtrooper is similar to the Shoretrooper below, only black with full legs??? Any leads would be great. I am not quite ready to purchase, but I like to have everything planned out before I attack a project. thanks, -david
  11. What did you use to cut the brow trim off with?
  12. I would be very interested in a Chest plate and Back plate when this is ready! Especially if it is vac-formed with resin greeblies.
  13. This is so good. I thought I had myself talked out of building a full Shoretrooper....but then I look at these and I rethink everything. Also...I need to trade my BSP helmet in for an Anovos....its just so perfect. :/ I was thinking of getting a BSP armor kit and converting the applicable pieces into a R1 TK...maybe they will give me a deal on two kits.
  14. oh man, I hope you can get this all back up...I have nearly all the parts to build this and was going to start soon. I hope Photobucket gets hell for this, it has ruined almost every forum I am a part of.
  15. Got mine in its chocolate brown base coat. Also, used a lightly textured spray paint before the brown. If mine turns out half as good as yours I will be happy.
  16. I have a couple extra sets *EDIT one set of 6 left "bed roll" buckles. If any one is interested in the US, Ill let them go for cheap. shoot me a PM. *GONE
  17. So when you repaint your Anovos helmet you will be going with a brown base rather than a black base? Just got my BSP helmet and am going to start the paint up soon...just curious what is believed to be the base color.
  18. I may go with these, they are rubber but the closest I can find and for $8 for 25 its worth a try until I find something closer. McMaster Carr #2517T81 or 2517T34
  19. Are the frame post end caps on the M75 rubber or plastic? I got a M75 from Coleman's that luckily turned out to be the M75 and not the LK35, but unfortunately the end caps are missing, so I am going to have to seek out a simple replacement.
  20. I looked into the NGT 12' Floatmaster as it was suggested in the thread earlier. Though it looks like an very good alternative to the screen used rod, unfortunately, I have yet to find a supplier willing to ship to the US. Hopefully some other US troopers can tell me if they found a source for the NGT 12' Floatmaster. The search continues...
  21. Yeah, just curious if anyone in the US has found something similar as a starting point. 3 piece 12' rods seem hard to source in my quick online search....but I know nothing about fishing so I could be looking in the wrong spots.
  22. Has anyone found a good alternative antenna source/replacement, preferably in the US? I am starting to collect pieces for this and would love to know. thanks, -david
