After seeing Psyclonetroopers New Hope era style Commandos, I decided to make a couple myself. Enjoy!

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Hydrospan
« on: December 17, 2008, 06:11 PM »
I thought i saw a thread on this, but lost it. I was wondering if anyone had ever successfully increased or enlarged any vehicles using this stuff. I was thinking AT-AP enhancement. I can't imagine how'd you get two items to expand at the same rate and end up being the same size. sounds interesting though.

Star Wars Action Figures / Sandtrooper MG-15 based rifle

Did they ever make that MG-15 based rifle that some Sandtroopers seem to carry around? Anyone make it in resin? I think it's a cool looking weapon, and was hoping to add it to my molds.

Customizing Tips and Tricks / Help with casting weapons
« on: October 30, 2007, 09:12 PM »
Anyone have any hints/tips on mold making/casting weapons? I've tried to press a blaster into a clay bed, and it's really difficult to build the clay up to the parting line. Usually after I've tried to press the blaster into the clay, i end up with a low spot around the middle of the blaster. Do some of the clays vary in hardness?
If any of you have had successful results with casting in 2 pieces, could you share please. Thanks in advance!

Newbies / Hey! From Los Angeles

Hello, I've been lurking for a while now, mainly because i don't have a decent digital camera right now(to post pictures of customs). My main reason for joining "JEDIDEFENDER " is for customs. I'm new to collecting and customizing, just learning all the abbreviations for all the figures is a chore for sure, let alone trying to find them at my local Wal- Mart and TRU.
 What got me into collecting was the video game Republic Commando, i was looking up stuff on the net and came across the Republic Commando action figure set. After buying that set, it was over, my addiction was growing almost as if i had no control over it. A few Stormies here, a few Clones there, now I'm lookin' at around roughly 35 loose figures and around 25 figures still in packaging on my shelf. I'm sure all your collections dwarf mine, but I'm just getting started, go easy on me please! I'm currently working on a sniper rifle for "Sev", re-doing an Airborne Trooper, getting rid if the plastic skirt and swapping it out for a cloth one, adding straps and photo etched buckles and last but not least, my most ambitious project repainting a tie interceptor that will end up being red, white and black.
 By the way, i found JEDIDEFENDER through "Rebelscum" and thought I'd join since you guys really seem to have the latest news scoops.Apologies for not having a Star Wars related handle.......I'm manglord on every board i visit, just makes it easier for rememberin' passwords and all. Thanks for reading my long boring post guys! Later...
