    No ABS, but I'm sure we have plenty of spare styrene laying around that would be large enough for shims.

    Matt -

    I'm not sure how much Tom passed on - but you are welcome to march in the tape.

    We did one shoot today, and the follow up shoot will be either Tuesday or Friday...

    I found some styrene that was thicker than what I had before.
    So I'll just use that. Thanks.

    Yeah Tom told me what was going down. Unfortunately I won't be able to help you on Tuesday.
    I also has a little set back with the armor so I didn't get it finished this weekend like I planned.

    If only I had the cash right now. Cheap Han stuff I need all in one auction. Would save me a lot of trouble. Oh well.

    Looks great! Can't wait to see it at the parade then :)

    You have pants lined up?

    If you are hurting for an inner tunic, let me know :)

    J-Man;

    I hope I can find the time and resources this week to make the inner tunic, but I will send notice well in avance of Saturday if I do not get it together. Pants I got.

    By the way, I'm shooting for the Ep. 2 look ('cuz of da mullet), so the inner tunic should be white. Is that what the color is of the one you have to lend? And do you have the thin "Comlink" pouches (2, I believe) that Obi wears on his EP.2 belt? I've got other pouches I can cheat with, as you well know; specifically the Mel Mattson one. The lay-persons watching the parade won't know the difference, though you all will!

    Hey Dean!

    GREAT obi-job twin! Well, not any longer.... LOL
    So, how many sewing machine needles did you break on that belt? ;) NOT that that would ever happen on a leather job. [face_whistling]

    See you on Saturday!

    Got my Officer Cap in the mail yesterday. Looked kind of funky at first. Put it on and still a little weird. I could not remember exactly, so I looked at photos, and yes its supposed to look that Dorky, for lack of a better term. I did not remember it going up that high in the front. I thought mine had to much of a point to it. I got my belt and Hat. Just need Greeble for hat, Rank Bar, Cylinders, and of course the out fit it self. Buying one from a business would be nice, but looks to be out fo the question price wise. I was hoping to eventually make it my self. I can not get my sisters sewing machine as planned though. I did not think she would have a problem with me barrowing it for a while if I took classes, but my Grandmother who gave it to her and her, both refuse. She never uses it and barely knows how herself. She has had it for years. Oh well I plan on taking classes some time and maybe getting one. There are a few things I would like to get done eventually some not even Star Wars related. Science Patrol Member, OH YEAH!!! Someday maybe.

    My boots are all set. Got them all done up with more stretching and Zippers. They are now perfect. As perfect as they are going to get anyway. Almost doubled the price I paid for them, but it was needed and they were pretty cheap to begin with , as these type of boots go I have been told. Thank you EBAY. Both pairs of Han Pants are nice and hemmed for less fuss and I needed to repair a seem in one of them. That was all cheap enough to get done.

    Congrats on your new hat!
    I'm thinking of getting a rank bar myself so it might be cheaper for both of us if we do a combined order.

    I'd be into getting a rank badge, too. Count me in!

    $9.99 + shipping! I was the only bidder. Thank you, eBay, indeed!

    Well, here; check 'em out fer yourselves!

    The rank bars for Admirals and Moffs is $35 including shipping. The Commanders ones are $25.
    Do you know which rank/color combination you're interested in?

    Great find on those boots MadKid!

    Given that the highest rank Anakin ever got whilst in the service of the republic was Commander (or was it General?), I'd have to say I'll go for that rank. Don't wanna over-reach my "office"...

    Hey Dean,

    :confused: Where did you get your cool lucite(?) blade for your Obi-Wan costume? I loved the look of it and may be needing a purple one soon. o_O

    Gosh, Dar... I can't remember, it was so long ago (around 3 years or so), when I obtained the saber. I think I got the name of the blade/acrylic manufacturer from the guy I bought the saber from, who happens to be an old school-chum of mine, so I'll ring him, and see if he can rmember the producer. And yes; if memory serves, you can choose from all the usual blade colors...

    Hey gang- Whilst out looking to pick up a better fog machine at one of the area Spirit Halloween Stores, I happened to notice that they still had a couple of the Vader ESB FX sabers in stock. Seeing as how everything in the store is 50% off today, I just couldn't resist adding this one to my collection for a mere 50 bux! So much for the fog machine...
