    May 9, 2008, 10:26 AM - ESB Blaster #1

    Here are a few pics of my ESB blaster build. I bought parts from various sources before I decided to do a ROTJ Fett, thought I'd put it together anyway and sell it on.



    Some parts required a lot of filling and sanding before they were usable.
    All parts are resin casts except for the scope (real 4x20) and the 1 1/2 pipe. The pipe is used as a cheaper/lighter alternative to a MPP/Heiland tube. It can be removed easily.



    Some parts have been primed, others primed and sprayed, just slotted it together to see what it would look like.
    Will update later with finished pics. Probably end up in the cargo hold at some stage if anyone was interested. Not sure of price just yet.

    Nice build. Not sure that you would want to get rid of it. Why not have both blasters? It's all Boba Fett.

    Just a few progress pics, paint barely dry at this stage.
    Primed grey, metallic silver and then black (BBQ satin- best of both worlds between matt and gloss). The stock and grip were sprayed a matt brown. Needs some additional weathering, happy with the progress so far.









    cheers,

    Have finished the blaster, could probably do with some more weathering but I thought this was enough for the moment. Since the paintwork is layered, it will weather naturally as well. Only put one connector rod on right hand side. The square stock greeblie is not accurate either. Here are some pics







    Now I have set it to stun!!! Even the original Dougie himself approves



    Did say I was going to sell it on but I have now become emotionally involved so I'm going to hold on to it for a while anyway. Sorry FettDad, I know you were very interested.

    Any feedback good or bad appreciated.
