Hi everybody!!!
I believe it's my first topic on this forum.
My dad and me have a small french association. We make star wars, stargate, pirates harry potter costumes and props. I want to show you, first pics of my dad's hoth trench trooper costume.
We start with the A295 hoth rifle.
My dad made it hisself with a full metal and wood body replica of a STG-44.
He made it without machine tools (just with hand and small tools, file, screwdriver... Smile ).
Full metal, wood for the handguard, plastic just for the end of the scope.
I think it 95% accuracy.
enjoy
ps: sorry for my bad english.

Hi everyones.
Update about my dad's costume.
Today, pictures of his backpack.
all parts are handmade (even metal body ).
enjoy it
ps: small precision about pipe, we had probelme to paint pipe (original color is grey). So my dad decided to make same "sock"that A wing pilot. It's personal choice.







His transport box

though it would seem that finding a good hose to use would be simple, I really had a lot of trouble finding something that would work too.

I tried a whole bunch of hoses...
some were too big
some too small
some to stiff...
it really can be more difficult that it looks.

Very Happy

ive got spare TIE pilot hose in the back of mine. But its expensive and you have to buy 5 meters of it
Car air conditioning duct hose should work, too.
