Seeing if there's interest. This mod simply slips over the metal bracket opto snug & clears the battlefield arm without any issues no rattling or ball interference.

Still dialing in the painting.

I like the look! Have you reached a current price?

#3 1 year ago

I think a fair price would be $35.00 w/ free shipping painted or not painted maybe choices brass color or gold.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

#4 1 year ago

If you get the paint to match, Please allow me to order a set.

If I can be of help trying to achieve the paint job, Id be happy to try.

That's cool!

Nice--I was just working on my game this week and was thinking how ugly the exposed options were. Nice approach

Since Covid I’ve built lots of props (yes including a life-size R2 my wife thinks I'm crazy & I can't argue with her...) Taught myself a decent amount of 3D printing. This mod is solid it takes my printer at high settings .4 nozzle w/ 8 walls & 60% infill so these aren't going to crack or chip or at least they shouldn't. I have done several fits.

Now back to painting initially I thought I'd give Alclad a go but before I try that I'm going to look into a nice candy gold w/ a black glossy primer/undercoat mask & paint faces in the gold w/ a nice black wash to finish it off I'll use my glossy lacquer to protect & provide a little shine. Towards the end of the weekend I'll share more images of the mod. If anyone wants a set unpainted in the meantime please DM me & I'll be happy to mail them out in the morning. Thanks for all the positive comments much appreciated

The Shadow is a beautiful game & this mod really adds to the overall design-system I feel I can come close to the Phurba diverter(s) tone/color. Stay–Tuned!!

I feel great about the new paint choice with black wash new one on left also changed print orientation less lines for future prints.

Got most print lines & new gold works well. I’ll take 5.

That looks awesome!

Immediately I am think of gargoyles. The way I see the battlefield is that it is on top of a building, and that the men with the swords is the ornament to that building.

Would it be possible to make something like that?

Interesting idea. Yes, that could be done gargoyles wouldn't be too tall not a lot of clearance.

#14 1 year ago

Definitely interested in a set! Let me know when I can order!

#15 1 year ago

Still trying to dial in the sizing so it's as close as possible on the left side they're a few variables rubber size & Opto wires. Once I get this dialed-in I'll def let everyone know. I'd hate to send them out & not fit well... Thanks.

#16 1 year ago

I'd like to get a set when you're ready!

#17 1 year ago

Put me down for a set please!

#18 1 year ago

Disclaimer: The wires on your opto, if not stock configuration, may make the cover fit all little bit looser or tighter also thickness of rubbers & paddle slack. They can move their wires if needed but you aren't responsible if they are too tight for non-stock machines. I will do my best to assist everyone & do my best to provide a support/solution(s).

Installation is easy & only takes a minute just be gentle slowly slide them over if it feels too tight please do not force over.
I feel I have now have reached the appropriate sizing/print quality for both sides pieces. Please DM & I can put you on the list for shipment for this upcoming Saturday just going to ship for the first two that DM me to make sure they're no issues. Thanks again!!

*******It's been brought to my attention that some small filing may need to be done if you own PDI glass it's slightly thicker so please use caution.******
