Hello all - thought I should share my repro page on my die cast site with the home of repro comparisons. I just bought a set of repro parts for the die cast ships but there are other makers out there that I've yet to get samples of.

The repros are pretty good but there are tells.

Click on the 'reprodcution' tab in the link

Thanks for sharing that with us. It's kind of scary how good some of them look.

@darthberizing
Maybe we can link this on the main site?

@spoons Nice write up and pics. The resin and plastic parts are scarily close.
Re the 3D parts, hopefully studios like Prometheusrising will continue to mark their repros as 3D becomes more popular.
As Bryan mentions, I can add a link to your write up on imperialgunnery.com if you like?
