We are all current members of the 501st legion, for those who have not heard of it we are a Star Wars costuming group.
I have indeed heard of it. I met some of the 501st SCG crowd at the RAAF Richmond Xmas Fair last year, very nice group of people. I had my Proton Pack in the boot of the car, so there was a bit of Ghostbusters/Star Wars show 'n tell going on, hehe.
Well you guys have probably got the skillz that killz when it comes to prop building, looking forward to seeing photos of your scratch-builds.
