    Chewie is now 85 inches, or just over 7 Foot, thanks to new 14" stilts [face_dancing]

    Just need to work out how to hide them!

    Very cool, Phoon! :D As for hiding them, probably enquiring at fabric stores for material for fursuits may be your best bet. But that's just an uneducated guess.

    =D= Classic! [face_laugh]

    Thanks mate. I will give that a try, but not liking my chances of matching the fur. If not, I will just have to relocate some fur from other parts of the suit. This will be a challenge though, as there isn't a great deal of fur to begin with :)

    [face_laugh] paging doctor Phoon for an urgent fur transplant.

    In all seriousness, you're doing a great job & can't wait to troop with Chewie :D

    it's all wood & very light. Some turned, some carved by the look, but Trooper 6082 might be able to shed more light. It's a very nice piece :D

    Hint received, Hint replied to:D


    M-S, glad you like it!

    Merrick, It's all wood (with screws, naturally). The flash hinder & scope were turned on a lathe, the rest was cut/carved/sanded.

    Phoon, Machine is apt, especially after how I looked this arvo[face_laugh] . Half-way thru making another couple of T-21's, as well as a few prototypes!

    Thanks so much mate. You're a true Champ! [:D]

    You'll have to start calling your garage - "AL'S ARMOURY" [face_laugh]

    Can't wait to see your T21's as well

    Video of the stilts is now on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxpVG-uSo8k

    Not sure how it will look once I have added fur to cover them up, but it's a work in progress :)

    @ 6082 - Nice going mate. It's already looking the goods =D=

    @ DM - Nice, very nice! BTW, went to that leather place you recommended. Friendly service and they set me up with some nice pieces of leather for the bandolier. Thanks mate.

    @ MS - Thanks for posting the link for the bowcaster. An interesting read, and could be a good source for some other Chewie bits n pieces in the future ;)
