Re: My latest project BB-8 Build

Very cool. I love seeing 3d printed stuff, especially Star Wars related (huge fan XD). Always inspires me to try and make a Boba Fett costume. I've never done anything with 3d printing...is it expensive? Thanks, 3D printing can be quite reasonable but it really needs to be done with a decent machin...

Re: My latest project BB-8 Build

Thanks Skywalker :) Before starting I had no experience in building to this scale before so joined the BB-8 builders club and went from there. Was definitely a great learning experience for me. I'm currently working on a Kylo Ren mannequin display, will post updates as I go.

Hello all It's been a while.

Hi everyone Nick here from the UK.

Many moons ago I used to be a Cartoon link hunter on the old boards and recently was thinking of the good old days so did a search and happily found the new forum! Looking forward to being reacquainted and meeting some old and new friends.
