Hey guys,
I'm working on putting together a 12" figure and am still needing a few parts.  Due to this being a primarily SW site, I'm not real sure if I should look for parts there.

I recognize names here and know I'm not going to get ripped for posting this here...but put this elsewhere if need be. :)  So first, thanks for being much better than RS about slamming people with honest questions.

I'm still looking for kneepads, camel backs, and a couple of other things.  I've got several of the 3.75" elite force figures (probably close to 20 w/ accessories), and I have the ATV as well, I know it's called a chunnelwick, but I can't seem to find the correct spelling.

Anyway, the ATV is used primarily by the SEAL teams, but is labled as USMC dessert patrol vehicle.  Let me know if anyone can help me out here.

Thanks.

Other Toy Lines / BBI/Dragon custom w/pics
« on: August 5, 2005, 11:21 PM »
I'm working on a custom military figure and before I get too far into it I want to check on something.

For you 12" guys, are Dragon and BBI figures the same? I can't seem to figure this out. I've guessed that they are different figures. However, if they are different, will the Dragon accessories work on BBI and vice versa?

I know they are all in the same scale (which someone at RS was kind enough to point out to me)  ::) but are the accessories, such as hands, helmets, assault vests, etc.

Any help would be appreciated.

Modern Classifieds / X wing canopy needed bad!!
« on: July 15, 2005, 10:16 AM »
I need a working 3.75" X wing canopy bad.  It can be either clear or dark from the vintage fighter or any from the modern fighters.  The only one that won't work would be from the scaled Saga version.  I need this thing to put the finishing touch on my custom TIE ugly that I've posted a few pics of in the customs section.

I don't have much to trade right now, but let me know if you have one and we'll work something out.  I can also pay for it.

Vintage Kenner / Second anniversary present
« on: June 22, 2005, 11:50 AM »
Well, yesterday my wife and I celebrated our second anniversary. We went into the garage to get the car and go eat...I find, a vintage Death Star playset.

I about flipped my lid. I opened it up, and lo and behold, I find the dionoga and rope for the set. She said it was complete.

I bet my wife is better than anyone elses. I had said a while back that I had always wanted one as a kid. She got on the 'net and searched and ended up at The Earth. I haven't checked, but I'm guessing she got a pretty good price on it as Joe is usually really competitive with his prices.

Anyway, I now have to find a place to put it and display it prominently in my SW room.

I can't get the picture to work here so click on through for the picture. The cat was not included in the gift. He was what I tied my wife's engagement ring around when I asked her to marry me...he was her birthday present that year.

Star Wars Ships and Vehicles / Custom X/TIE ugly pics!!! UPDATE
« on: June 13, 2005, 05:50 PM »
My newest custom is on the way. I've said this before, but I'll go ahead and say it again...some of you guys and gals may have seen my custom gunship and snowspeeder over at RS.  If you haven't and want to, you can run a search over there under custom gunship and snowspeeder.  I go by the same name over there.
Now, I've got a new one in the works.  Hopefully I'll get it together before the end of summer and I've got to start teaching again.

I'm finally getting ready to begin work on another custom ship.  Some of you may have seen my Special Ops gunship and sandspeeder over at RS last year.

I'm working on some sort of TIE/X wing ugly fighter.  I've got the wings for a TIE interceptor, have torn apart and W wing and have most of the parts, and have the rotating part of a B wing.  I've got a couple of outlines drawn up but would love to see some more pics if anyboyd has some TIE/W uglies.  I'll be visiting FFURG again, but would love up close photos so I can get an idea on how somebody may have attached the TIE wings to the body of another ship.

Newbies / Hello all!!!
« on: May 4, 2005, 08:33 AM »
Hello all, nice to see another friendly SW site out here.  I've read through the boards over here from time to time but hadn't registered until the past month or so.

FWIW, I tend to enjoy the smaller SW fan sites because they have a more friendly, down home kind of feel to them.  I've recognized a number of names here from over at RS and a couple from the place where I mod at.

I'm a Han collector, vintage and modern.  I also build custom ships, but only when I'm not swamped with having to grade papers, or do the ongoing teacher responsibilities.  I've taked a bit of a hiatus lately because my wife and I are working on the down payment for a house...so I can contain my overgrown collection of little plastic men.
