    Hi guys,

    a few years ago on the FedCon I've been asked if I now a solution for the Star Trek pips with the sharp edged attachment on the inside of the collar. Some fans have got a quite strong neck and got skin irritations from these parts.

    Well, you might all know that I'm creative and the solution is above. In the recessed areas are rare earth magnets in 6 mm in diameter and 1 mm (strong enough to hold 500 grams) thick and the pips itself are 8 mm in diameter and 3 mm thick (they hold 1,5 kg).

    The benefits are that you don't need to make holes in the fabric of your uniform, they stay in the same distance to each other and it's quite easy to put them from one uniform to the next.

    So far this is my most successful prop I ever did and I can offer them in Commander or Captain version. Drop me a line if you are interested.

    Keep on trekkin'

    No, a few years ago I've seen screenused ones and they are more like the ones from Anovos.

  • Well, I do make them on request, but only with a black dull round sticker on the top. Once I've tried to drill a whole in the magnet with the result of destruction.
