This is my first time posting here although I read the posts often and found it to be an invaluable resource in the project. I usually post my custom figures that I have made where I reinterpret star wars in various genres. You guys may like my various Boba Fetts.
I actually started making replica props with my dad back in 92. I recently decided to try and make a Boba Fett ESB EE-3 from spare parts and for very cheap. Here are some early steps. I have actually finished it and will post pictures in a day or 2.
an old crosman 357 (already had the gun and thought it look like a webley - it even breaks open at the same pont) with various pvc parts for a barrel
a 10$ tasco scope which I thought had a passable resemblence to the movie scope.
Scrap wood reworked on a belt sander.
medium stain - no varnish - actually used a semi gloss model top coat.
Apoxie sculpted the detail and made the stalk arm out of plexi.
the Revell part is actually 2 pieces of plexi cut out and glued on a cap.
The total cost of the entire gun is under 30$
