    Wow nice work! Awesome to see a scratchbuilt blaster that appears to be the correct scale!

    Keep it up!

    Planning to mold this afterwards?

    and some more pic . i paint it with humbrol 53 gun metal and used humbrol 62 thinned with white spirit for rust , however this gun metal looks bit to grey I'm probably going to mix some black with it and paint it again , i also installed a laser pointer in scope to imitate a sight , but that wont last coz i just found a proper scope with mounts for 5

    Simply amazing buddy, my only criqt would be what you mentioned in that its a little grey, but thats an easy fix to an excellent looking rifle Do you plan on molding it up?

    Nice job and really inspiring. I intend to scratch build the ESB version and your work really motivates me. Did you use the Wizard of Light templates (which are great...Thanks WOL!!) or some other source material?

    measurements-jpgHi Bothan , i didn't have WOF templates when i started , i used dimensions by tk409 but turned up very close and my is bit bigger, a cooling track specialy .of course WOL templates are strongly recommended best thing (Thanks WOF) :] good luck with your build , post some pic from progress
