Very nice. Looks like the chestbox came out very well. Smile

The computer component greeblie on the front, the other copies you have in the picture, are those all resin cast and painted or are they all made with actual metal screws, diodes and stuff?

The pictures I saw were very high detail. The circuits are resin cast, painted, gone over in silver pen (for the circuitry), then actual components are epoxied onto the board. Time consuming but most accurate.

The disk is actually on the vest. Sewn on. That is also cast. Funny, its also a side greeblie for the B-Wing Helmet.

I will be selling the boxes and greeblies in January (after the holiday madness).

Looking damn good Smile

One minor nitpick, if I may: the sides on your box look steeper than the photos in the Costumes book. Other than that, spot on... Even the small LEM model kit for the greeblie on the left side is there Smile

What once was mystery, is no longer....

The size is dictated off of the pictures we had a chance to see. The size was based off of the circuit board, rib sizes and spacing and the diameter of the hose connection. The base was then calculated and the top surface of the box. Then it was modeled to allow the size of the hose connector to fit so as to meet the pictures. When it was all put together, it worked. The pictures on the book don't have the various angles we had access to. it took 5 models, 4 months of work and many discussion with the person who had a chance to hold the box in his hands to get it to where it is.

...once again, great kit Robert, I wouldn´t worry about the side angles...even if they wouldn´t be 100% to the original, you are still closer to the real thing then must of boxed built so far...sometimes 99% has to be enough, and as long as nobody gets the chance to actually measure the sides and angles, it´s still the best and most accurate kit available in here Thumbs up
