    ESB WIP: Ord Mantell's ESB Build

    Gosh, it's been two years already since I posted that I was going to overhaul my gauntlets (ESB - WIP: Ord Mantell's ESB Build). I started rolling on that when suddenly I realized the photogrammetry stuff by @Minute was on the horizon and going to completely replace the fettpride shells I...

    Gauntlet Whipcord Housing - Free Download!

    What? Did they really? Their website is still online, but I guess its not too functional atm. By the way, for others dissatisfied with their prints, I put in a complaint to Paypal and ended up getting a full refund.

    Gauntlet Whipcord Housing - Free Download!

    Just FYI, I did order the "smooth plastic" option from Shapeways and it was also textured. I wrote them to inquire if it was a mistake as this doesn't meet the definition of "smooth" to me. This was their response: SLS 3D printed parts have a rough surface finish due to the nature of the...

    ESB WIP: Ord Mantell's ESB Build

    Time for one last research entry and then moving on to finishing this build which is now three more years behind schedule.... NEW CLUE TO THE 4th or "MYSTERY" SHIN TOOL Last year, Mario Maala found some old photos he had forgotten about. They were a few pics of his time at Daydream Studios...

    Piezoelectric Sparker (gas lighter) Find

    I think this is just a highlight and a dark reflection next to each other on the edge contour. At most maybe its a slight deformity of the plastic at the edge. I do not think its an actual raised part of the plastic. If you follow it all the way to the front, away from the highlight, there is...

    Piezoelectric Sparker (gas lighter) Find

    The K-tel zerostat is a great and exciting find. Very happy about it turning up, but very sad it turned up literally a month too soon for us to grab it. I think there are still a couple of things to figure out before we can say this is the actual make and model of the part on the costume. It...

    Piezoelectric Sparker (gas lighter) Find

    Master hunter @RafalFett has scored a prize find: For those in the dark on this, can't imagine anyone here is but just in case, this is the style of gas lighter used on the right gauntlet, discovered by JimmyC on TDH years ago. No one has found one. Until now. Rafalfett discovered these gas...

    Possible Found Parts for Boba Fetts Jetpack Rocket

    that would have to be a giant sized canteen cap to be it. I have the German versions of those and they are not big enough. I've always thought this as well but never bought one to get the measurements. Anyone try buying one?

    ESB WIP: Ord Mantell's ESB Build

    Sometimes waiting for parts is the biggest battle of a build. I got the parts for the ab plate speakers a year ago but they are in pergatory, waiting to come back with my helmet, so I got a backup pair instead and decided to just move forward because progress is progress. I don't plan to redo...

    ESB WIP: Ord Mantell's ESB Build

    oh yeah, forgot to mention that yes indeed I used a non-destructive glue for keeping that and the visor material in there.... I used E6000, but you can use anything. I prefer to use non-destructive glues on anything that is an old and expensive found part. Non-destructive meaning you can remove...

    ESB WIP: Ord Mantell's ESB Build

    Continuing to be in a holding pattern waiting on a few items, but I realized I could actually go ahead and re-do the 3rd shin tool (the one with the pair of stylus brushes on it). I've forgotten the fictional name given to it. Is it the vibroblade? (edit: Anti-Security Blade) Whatever it's...

    PP2 Ord Mantell's PP2 Build

    What I decided to try is duct tape over electrical tape. I think it works. Unfortunately the proportions on my ancient of days beacon from 15 years ago is a little off. But this is the only one I have without the knob on top. I'm not sure anyone makes this version anymore.

    Everoak helmet straps measurements and reference for anyone wishing to make replicas

    I'm hoping there is someone out there with the skills and resources to offer replicas of these for the community. I haven't had much luck finding exact matches for all the materials that go into these. Perhaps a lot of it simply isn't made the same anymore. I do think decent replicas can be made...

    PP2 Ord Mantell's PP2 Build

    I've heard this idea from others, too, and now after looking at it and thinking about it for a long time, I think this makes a lot of sense. Or at least its as likely as the masking tape idea. I've decided to go that route and see how it looks.
