    50% finished ESB Blaster

    Hi ppl

    Quick up date on the blaster progess.

    As can be seen the main body of the Webley is constructed from wood. I basically layered sections together and sanded to shape.

    The barrel was made from 50mm telecom ducting and a chrome exhaust pipe from the local auto centre.

    The scope was purchase from Ebay (the oly part of the blaster which has not been scratch built), it is similar to a Tasco 4x20. The mounts were made from 18mm wide sections of the 50mm pipe. These were cut and heated to make flat pieces which i then folded to shape, i added screws to the centres for support.

    The stock connector was made from a 4mm thick road sign (see pic) and attached to the scratch built stock (just a piece of old timber i had in the shed).

    Well thats just about it until i add the trigger and greeblies. enjoy.

    Re: 50% finished ESB Blaster

    Well i have changed the mussel (car exhaust) for a more screen accurate vacuum cleaner pipe

    oh and added stock greeblies.

    thought i would forget about adding the trigger, as when i take this thing trooping it will be obvious that it can't fire.
