Nice upgrade Jeff! Those are the kind of upgrades where the money is well spent.

You Have any other projects your working on?

Yes, always Smile Doesn't seem like it though, It takes me longer then most, maybe. I think I have been working on Endor Han for about 2 years maybe. Still need the right pants. I'll be slowly working on Bespin Han once Endor is done and registered. I have the " Falcon Jacket " pattern and the right holster buckles so far. That will take time and more credits.

My main project though will be Rebel Commando before ESB Han.

I just finished assembling and painting up my ANH Han Solo DL-44 so I thought I'd take a few snaps and show it off here:



I will be doing my Han costume next year but got the blaster now to wear with my pilot until then so you'll notice me spending some time around the Fringe forums doing my research and such Wink .

For those that are keen, or on a budget, I've found what looks to be a really good tute for building your own droid caller. It can be found here.

I had to ask Brian, who wrote the tutorial, to fix his photo links, a few months ago. Razz

Speaking of droid callers, does anyone have any ideas on how to make them stay in the clamp. My clamp is just a piece of aluminum that is easily bent. I use a flash tube for my caller. It pops out and falls off to easily. I was thinking of maybe trying to use a magnet somehow and the actual clamp would be just for looks. What have you done with yours?

Druid caller? Would that be like a chant or something? Laughing

Did you try looking at the Droid Caller thread?

My blasters (reposted from another thread)







The ESB one is from Unique Canes (it's the heavy one). I have two resin ESB blasters en route--one I plan to customize in brass tones and pearlized grips, just as a conversation piece. The ROTJ one I never realized how lucky I am to own. It was my first DL-44 construction project and I got the parts from a resin kit years ago on ebay. Wish the guy was still around...

...and a custom paint job I did on a Kenner toy Episode 1 Tattooine Blaster:

Nice blasters Jason. I too have the ESB from Unique Canes. Heavy it is, but nice.

I just got another one yesterday, a "close" ESB model. The scope isn't 100% accurate, but it looks very cool nevertheless and is much lighter than the Uniquecanes one. I need to snap a few photos and post it here...
