    Prop guy here,

    Matt and I have talked about 3 projects that we are working on also I have one for myself, But I started this thread to see what you guys need or are working on and if I can help?

    Also to see if other people out there can find parts I can't.

    I am looking for (3) 18.75" domes or as close as I can get.

    So lets see what your working on, and let me know what you need.

    I'm still wanting to do the e-web. Now that I've decided to do a snowie once my tax returns are in, we need to do an e-web. I'll give you a call later this week. Also, we need to build some gonks.

    I second the gonk suggestion mainly because our new Jawas are going to need a droid to carry at events and pose next to. pv

    the eweb would be totally sweet, it's a shame we can't get ahold of an old howitzer real cheap and then retro fit it.

    I have an old Snowtooper costume I built from scratch in 1996-97 for the Special Edition Theatrical releases. It's pretty cheesy compared to the 501st molds, and nowhere as nice as Sithmonger Fett's armor - but it might be the only armor I'm going to be able to afford with gas prices going to $4 a gallon soon. I might look into getting it out of mothballs and seeing how much of it is left intact after 11 years in an attic.

    Perhaps a Gonk and Major Prop Weaponry Day?? Fett needs an improved blaster anyway and Sandtroopers can never have a big enough gun. The E-Web is a good idea to tackle for a day-project.

    Instructions on building an e-web blaster:

    My Snowtrooper armor did not hold up well after 11 years. Looks like a total rebuild - or I'll need to rob a bank to buy a kit online.

    Yep those are the ones we are using, but I have some ideas for making it better.

    Yeah I think we can improve on that. Parts of it look pretty inacurate and flimsy.

    I definitely think you guys can improve upon this. I would just like to point out something in the pic of the E-WEB... do we need to take lessons from a snowie that has on sneakers? Go look.

    Is that canon? I don't think there are laces in the Star Wars universe... back me up TK-8049...

    have you talked to osiris? he has a great link on a snowie kit. and that I know of, there isn't a good "kit" out there for the IRG, it's kinda diy. could be wrong though. I just chose to do it that way.

    No laces exist in the STAR WARS Universe. Always try 501st.com for info on a costume. On the main page there is a header for units hit that and then go down to detachments and from that you should be able to go to any Imperial uniform board you wish with experts at your service.So say we all

    I think we need to set up a prop-building/gonk droid day sometime in May on a Saturday. I offer my garage as a place we can use.

    How about we set up a prop building day at my house on a Saturday in May. Maybe a week or two before the Indy showings? What do you all think?

    I think we as a club need this and need it badly. Two words: MOUSE DROID.

    Thoughts?

    A guy on the 501st forums, MonCal, who has a kit for sale. I've pm'd him for a price for the kit.
