Re: Cheng boots????

I think your right, i got mine out and compared them and everything is the same except that liner that reads dockers size 44. Darkside's have no printing anywhere as far as i can see, but everything else is exactly the same. :roll:

Re: ABS or Resin TIE Pilot, that is the question...

Good topic, My personal opinon is it depends on how thick the resin is. Myself i like the feel and look of resin, you get great detail with it. I have some resin buckets here and they are quite nice but if its a thin casting i would pass. I would say at least 1/8 or more to be durable. Resin will br...

Are you going to repaint your bucket or do you not like the decals that are on there?

Armor epoxy

As i found out at the Weird Al show , hot glue doesn't stick to ABS very well ( thank Crom for white ducktape). Jay mentioned that you need epoxy to glue those snaps on real good. Can you give me some names or leads on what type or brand i should use? Thanks Moff :thumbs:
