  1. odd thing is, all of those were copied and pasted from google photos, but some later appeared as broken links to me too. I'm looking into a mobile app tht will upload to imgur, to cut out a couple of steps.
  2. Some of the pics appear to be broken link,s to me too... I'm just trying to keep the number of steps to a minimum, so I don't have to take a pic, send it to google phtoos, download it onto my laptop, upload it to an image sharing page, and then share the link to this forum, for each picture i post. I'll have to work on it a bit. Maybe I need an upload app installled on my phone to negagte the google photos section.
  3. Digging thorugh the box, I also found this second longer set... maybe THIS is the forearm pieces? Do both ends get trimmed so the piece lays flat on my arm? So this piece should be trimmed roughly here??
  4. OK, those are trimmed out with the dremel. What about the other 2 pieces above, do they get trimmed out the same way on both ends, so all the flash is gone?
  5. OKay, both ends are trimmed, and I'll use them dreel to grind them flush and make lots of white plastic dust.
  6. Here's my goal for today.... getting these parts trimmed out. Starting with these arm pieces, my understanding is that all the edge parts get trimmed off of these so they don't have any end on them. Once those are trimmed to remvoe the excess on each end, do these get trimmed the same way? Does all that extra on each end come off? And are these all 4 arm pieces? I think they all forearm pieces. Does left matter from right for these parts? I think the thumbprint is an indicator. How do I know which pie ce matches it?
  7. I still didn't say that, and I'm sorry you can't understand it. I'm done with this.
  8. Ok, I'm planning to spend much of my Sunday working on this, starting around 11 or noon Pacific time. I'm looking forward to making some real progress!
  9. I have 2 small (2 or 3 inch) fans that run off a small USB power bank. They're not enclosed, but my plan is to mount them down low. I don't have long hair or facial hair so that isn't a problem. Also they're very quiet. I'm also reseearching audio options, hoping to use some off the shelf stuff when needed, and cobble the rest together. I really want everything to run off USB to eliminate battery issues. 2 fans for $11. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0821YC2NW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Also, props to UKSWrath... I ordered Hovi tip speakers from him earlier this evening, and I already have a tracking number for it. That's fast!!
  10. Another thank you for writing this up, I'm starting my first build and very confident in my ability to measure once, cut three times. Bookmarked for use, and just bought a compass on Amazon.
  11. You're doing loads better than me, I got my 2 boxes in December, and.... consolidated it into one box. I built the thermal detonator and it turned out okay. I've been in too much of a panic to cut much of anything else, all the videos seem to contradict each other, or just be vague on certain subjects. I started a build thread yesterday and will probably tackle a lot of it this weekend, with support from this forum.
  12. OK, so it looks like this is ANH version, yes? https://www.etsy.com/listing/118253486/stormtrooper-e-11-blaster-prop-han-solo?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=Stormtrooper+E-11+Blaster&ref=sr_gallery-1-17&organic_search_click=1
  13. Yeah, E-11... that's what I ordered. Which one SHOULD i have ordered?
  14. Since I'm much better at shopping than actually building things, I ordered this E-11 blaster awhile back. Since then, someone mentioend to me that it isn't the correct blaster that I should be carrying. Can anyone shed any light on this, and what blaster I should have? https://www.etsy.com/listing/722047026/star-wars-e-11-blaster-rifle?ref=yr_purchases
