    Try reaching them on their Facebook page. I just noticed they posted about T-21s they might start making.

    Love that stand. Very cool.
  3. Pack looks great, love the photos. I hope to follow in your footsteps and get some R1 armor to go with my pack. Cheers for posting and for all the information you have shared here and on the FISD.
  4. Just wondering what happens to the hockey jersey interest thread. I was able to view and post there a few days ago but now says I am blocked, no permission . Any reason why this thread has gone dark? Or blocked me? Only for TDs strictly? Just want to know why I can’t access it anymore.

    Bulldog Props Scope Kit Project

    Just thought to post this and hear thoughts on why this black stuff was used or maybe it is just dirt build up. Seems to me like a sealant or screw lock to prevent tampering. For finishing the scope kit, this may be one way to detail the scope but I want to make sure this actually the case with other original scopes. Any thoughts?
  15. Just thought to post this here if some members here do not venture onto the FISD or RPF forums. Been working on making hollow resin scopes from my collection. Lots of trial and error along the way but starting to get better results. Hoping to use the M38 version on my blaster when I get to that point. Still putting my armor and pack together. Started in March 2016- Recent Castings with Smooth On Onyx- Posted above are test castings of the M19 light port bulb. Hardest part to cast so far but finally reached successful results. Almost no visible bubbles!!!! The M19 is not used on Bapty blasters but thought it might be of some interest for any members who are looking for an M19 for other blasters in their collection. Both the M38 and M19 scope cylinders and all the smaller parts have been molded and casted. Some smaller parts need to be re-molded to get better results but as is, they kit is almost ready. Now in the process of casting and stocking parts to prepare complete kits and still awaiting some screws to arrive. Most of the parts screw together smoothly like the real scopes, some require a bit of sanding and persuasion. Please feel free to add any comments or ask questions if you have any. Thanks for stopping by!

    Gino SANDTROOPER 'Move Along' backpack

    I love how accurate looking your exhaust port looks and was wondering how you made it or if it is a found part. Looks the best I have seen yet. Do you make these for sale? If possible could you provide some measurements or materials used to make it. 3D printed? I tried sending you a PM but it said you cannot receive messages. Hope to hear back about the exhaust port when you get a chance. Thanks.

    No luck with my searches. If you see any around on ebay again, let me know. Thanks.

    Striders Backpack build with found parts

    Thanks. I spent a lot on shipping for the boxes I got but now seeing your set up I think I will need the other lid to get that look. Where can I get those seed trays? looked on ebay but nothing. Great find.

    Striders Backpack build with found parts

    Is it possible to buy just the lids somewhere? I have a container but need to get the same blue style lid you have. Looks like a good latch to the original pack setup for this! Thanks for posting.

    Bulldog Props Scope Kit Project

    Update - May 18th. Final bag of screws just arrived yesterday to complete the kit. Sometimes the smallest things are the biggest hurdle. Nothing special, just M2 x 8mm black oxide screws to mount the prism cell. Not accurate to the originals but a good substitute I can afford. The original screws had slotted fillister heads and a spring washer. I have opted not to add a washer to reduce cost and wait time for supplies to arrive. Ebay suppliers in China have not been reliable. 3 orders of screws never arrived so I finally found the same stuff here in Japan but at twice the price. At least it arrived in 2 days from ordering. I tried hard to find screws that come as close as possible to the originals but there is no perfect match so I do apologize if that part of the kit does not make the grade. I have 3 types of the 3 slotted screws for the M38 but not sure which I will include. The ones I am leaning towards are a dull gray finish but they are closer to the correct head thickness of the original screws. They can be buffed to a shinier finish I think. The first round of kits I sold last year had a shiny nickel finish but they were not exact in detail either. Oh well. Hoping to have an official sales thread/link up this weekend with kits packaged and ready to go. Those who have already signed up on the interest form will be given priority to buy a kit. Photos and details outlining the kit to be posted soon. Thanks again for your patience!

    PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Thanks for the reply and explanation. I see your point. Getting my hyperfirm to Japan was a bit of a headache so I alway hoped the DLT could be easier to transport and assemble. But as you mentioned, Structure, durability and quality...and cost speak volumes. I trust your knowledge and word on this. Now I must start saving cash for one of these babies or sell one of my kidneys! Cheers!

    PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    I know you may have covered this somewhat in the explanation above but wondering if the this blaster could be done so that you can break it down for transport. I know this reduces sturdiness but wondering if there could be some connection system like how the Doopy DLT comes apart. Is it possible or has it been tried before?

    Bulldog Props Scope Kit Project

    Here is a link to my interest form for anyone interested in a kit. Just collecting data and will soon set up an official interest thread and then a sales thread when I receive the last pack of screws and check the kit parts before I package any. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdxY87UYS5Bfq1BsfNwtAKC7MtRSNjtXUYAxs1F5Qjti-9OdQ/viewform?usp=sf_link Feel free to comment or ask questions if you have any. Some basic manuals I made for the kits: Some of those annoying air pockets I have been getting in the castings. Starting to reduce them as I go along:

    Bulldog Props Scope Kit Project

    Cheers Rolf! Thanks a bunch. It been fun doing this but it took a long time to learn. You can certainly do it but yes, it takes much time and unfortunately space which I don't really have. My working space is roughly one square meter on the floor. Good thing the parts are small!

    I am considering a vacuum chamber and pressure chamber if I ever find a work space to set up. I have been upgrading my molds with better release spouts and testing my pouring methods with better results. Thanks again for your kind comments.
