  1. Just thought I'd post a preview of my latest project in progress: a 3D model of the Shore trooper heavy blaster from Rogue One. This has been modelled by myself from photos I took of the real prop at Celebration Europe earlier this year. It's still not perfectly how I would like it. I can see errors. But l think it's probably 95% there. Comments welcome. Admin feel free to move/edit this thread if you think it's in the wrong place.
  2. That and the paint is hard to wash off your armour :-)
  3. Decals are accepted for basic 501st approval. The MEPD requires "hand painted" for deployment. Although I don't see the difference between using a paint effect decal and painting in a template.
  4. Great stuff! Will you build an Android version too?
  5. Thanks for the review and for all the positive comments. I'll endeavour to get the paint mods done this weekend and hopefully have everything buttoned up for next week.

    Actually, it would be great if it were *that* easy. Especially since 75% of the SWAT impressions are "Road block captain" it can be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
  8. That blaster looks suspiciously like a Hasbro conversion ... just sayin
  9. The working sight prototype is more or less resolved now. The images below are the parts just dry fit together, pretty much raw off the printer. Minor clean up only. Will need to add some TLC later : Closed: Open: Adjustable aiming reticle :
  10. Thanks for using my build as a reference. It's a real compliment. Drop me a line, Ryan. I think I might be able to help you out if your tired of chopping your own hands off.

    What I'd like to see would be a clear mention of which trooper is being emulated in the approval thread titles. That way its easy to quickly search for others who have attempted and completed a particular impression.
