My new toy

Recommended Posts

Well I finally got my A&K SVD :D and a bargain second hand price hehe

 

Wooden kit now being ordered and also a PSO scope :)

 

I love this thing. It fires at just under 400fps but I may upgrade the spring as it is fitted with the lighter one.

Nice! :) take it you got legal defense? I've gotten two toned guns at bargain prices in the past as well :)

Yes I have defence, just the two tone was a lot cheaper than buying a black or wood version

Does anyone know how to remove the rear sling mount on these? I might need to do so when the wooden one arrives

I have the same gun, very good. Although mine has a weird habit of shattering 1 in 10 BBs fired mid-barrel. I don't use it so often because my tiny arm muscles can hardly handle the cocking on it, but it's fun for target shooting. I get a BB leak aswell, but it's only 1 or 2 out of the reasonably sized mag it has (30rd, isn't it?). It's a bloody rugged gun aswell (like my Tokarev, which also happens to be a Russian gun... gotta love Russian designs), it's taken a few knocks, the safety lever is broken, but I've not noticed a performance drop or anything since I've owned it. All in all, good catch, it's gonna look amazing with a wood kit, in fact I should really get one of those...

Hard to say as I work on it every now and again. I think though if you had all the bits to hand you could get this in a day

CHEWIE! Hand me those hydrospanners!

I've actually got a full size (7'7") chewie costume I've made as well. Similar technique of latch hooking hair onto a mesh under suit :)

If it's done tastefully then it's "art" which makes it fine haha

 

Anyway nice suit mate. How breathable is it?

??? I wasn't aware that I'd said something out of order. Please explain so I can reflect and alter my behaviour if needed

 

Not antagonistic but genuinely puzzled :)

Its not so bad ventilation wise. I originally just tied strips of hessian to it and that was hot. Since then I have stripped the hessian down and have effectively cut the weight and density down by 50%. I still wouldn't want to run much in, so hoping to use more in static techniques

He's pulling your leg mate, when you said wood is on he referred to it being an innuendo. I.e. you posting a picture of a penis lol

Wow! Cool!

Thanks Lozart. I am planning to rebuild the head as I was never pleased with it. I would like to build a fibreglass under skull and a latex over skull. I am also toying with the idea of install a piano wire mechanism to lift the lips when the mouth opens (producing a sneer like feature).

I have seen a cheap PSO scope on ebay although the battery cap is missing so it will not illuminate. Does anyone know if this lack of illumination would make the scope unusable? Or is it still usable during good light conditions?

Are you on the replica prop forum, or the UK garrison? Loads of excellent stuff there! Would love to do a full boba fett myself.
