Just finished putting together this Sidewinder ESB Blaster as part of a full costume for a customer. I'm really pleased with the kit, it required very little work to get it ready to paint. I've built quite a few ROTJ blasters over the years but I think that this is only my second ESB blaster.
I purposely painted the stock in darker shades of brown, I found this works well with the gunmetal colouring elsewhere, it also worked well alongside the tone of the leather strap. I spent quite a while working on the subtle rust tones all around the gunmetal areas, these were achieved with a series of pigments and washes.
Any criticisms are most welcome
