Alright ladies and Gentlemen, I will be updating the Thread on the RPF as the main thread regarding this Project.
As you can all see from Time Stamps of posts, that this project has been in the works for well over a year, and has been a massive undertaking to do. Some of these parts were very difficult to make, and required me to get really creative.
I don't post much about this project either, there are 30 parts to each full kit including all the fasteners to assemble the kits.
Many of these parts as a sourced artifact are so rare that I only know of a handful in existence that are public knowledge.
I will be posting more over the next several days as I begin to ship the parts to their respective owners, let me just say it was one of the most insane projects I have ever done in my life and right at the tail end I got a email from another prop maker on the RpF that stumbled onto a found part that I had already invested months into creating( literally just a few days ago) I will be offering that part at a ancillary cost in addition to the one I made as an option.
Luke: "Boy, it's lucky you have these compartments."
Han Solo: "I use them for smuggling. I never thought I'd be smuggling myself in them. This is ridiculous. "

Greedo Killer ( this denix was a test bed during the project- the casting had air bubbles in it so I halted accurizing after some blowout, but it showcases the Parts Kit) For your consideration, there are over 2 dozen parts to each full kit I will be doing a breakdown video describing assembly over the weekend as I do the paperwork and pack up everyone's parts for shipping. Please stay tuned.
THERE ARE SOME EXTRA FULL KITS AVAILABLE for $560 each kit, Feel free to PM me. thanks.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
