    May 20, 2003, 5:57 PM - Blaster Stock End Plate....... #1

    Looking on the ref pics i noticed the ROTJ Blaster has a metal plate and 2 phillips roundhead screws holding it in place. This would be the end of the wood stock, where it rests against your shoulder.

    The ref pics are:

    I know, I tried making one but the metal I was using was too hard to work with. I still plan on adding a butt plate though.

    What material for the butt plate were you going to use? I was considering a rubber one?

    That reference is a resin copy. All the details are 'real' model parts, but the gun is a copy in white resin, so all the details are painted on. The 'reel' one may have a metal buttplate, maybe not. (...is it aluminum or painted black? )

    According to Brak's Buddy and Tylerdurden, I believe that this blaster from the MoM exhibit, was a Fiberglass/resin cast blaster, molded from the original one. The big question remains if this blaster was created exclusively for the MoM exhibits, or were casted for filming in ROTJ in some of the sequences (Jabba's Palace for example).
