I do love seeing tese painted up! maybe I shoud do mine one day... good job!
Should have those waiting out tomorrow.
Thanks so much to Gav and volkerc - you guys ROCK for doing this for the community! Thanks a million!!!
Mine arrived safe and sound today and WOW! What an amazing piece of work - truly is fantastic! Shipping was steep but totally worth it to have this in my grubby hands!
Thanks so much Gav!
Got mine, thanks very much indeed to you guys, this is such a great piece and I am proud to add it to my ESB suit
Got my blaster and I love it. Can't wait to get this cleaned up and painted.....
i payed mine on the 9th of june!
mojo-fett contacted me, asked me to post that he has some issues with his internet provider. he has poured some more sidearms and will contact folks waiting as soon as he has the provider issues sorted out.
I have 4 sets of Sidearms already poured and ready to leave the door at a moments notice!
You can contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org and I can hook you up with no waiting.
Awesome Mojo! I FREAKIN LOVE mine! Anyone who hasn't gotten one of these should do so before they're no longer available! The prospect of finding a real one is low to nil... believe me when I say this is IDENTICAL to the original!
Does this mean mine is on it's way? (already paid for)
Although I am new here and this is my first post. I am very interested if you still have 1 available.
Here's my ESB sidearm. Many thanks to Gav
Cheers, glad ya like it bruv...
Still got a few ready...
PM to 'lonepigeon'
Hopefully, I'm not too late to grab one of these..pm sent.
Got mine a while back and finally had the chance to open it up. Awesome Gav!
GASP! are there still some available?
Going to the PO today....
Will send tracking info accordingly.
I love mine! I'm about to paint it and I'm just curious... is it a reddish brown or a brownish red color?
Sorry for posting so late!
i received my sidearm and it´s was beyond quality i thought it would be .... and i had high expectations!!!
thank you so much for doing the run!!!
cheers bruv! much appreciated.... glad you like it!
Your PM inbox is full so I couldn't send you a message.
Thanks for the tracking info! I'm looking forward to getting it!
Got mine last night. This sidearm is awesome!! Great work - thank you.
Had the pleasure of painting one of these bad boys a few weeks ago...beautiful piece Mojo. Hopefully I can still get one in the coming weeks.
Unfortunately there is no real reference of the gun out-side the holster, so most of the color/weathering is left for the imagination.

Got mine today!
Just awesome. Looking forward to painting it.
Nice job Spidey!
Is that bronze and graphite used for weathering the metal parts? I like the look of it.
Very nice paint up Spidey!!!
Very nice paint up on the barrel Alex, will need to tap you up on techniques?
I will have a couple made per request this weekend but after that the run starts to dry up...
Just got a chance to open mine and hopefully will get to painting it this week! Awesome craftsmanship! Thanks so much Mojo!
I'm going to need one of these for my ESB I'm putting together. Paypal ready and waiting sir!
Gav, got mine today, really awesome work !!!!
Thanks to Volkerc and Mojo to make thes beauties available !
Has anyone found a HUMBROL color for painting the ESB sidearm ?
Forgot to mention I got mine a few days ago too...Lovely piece of work.. thx man...
Regarding the paint scheme, Humbrol do not do one that even comes close, however, after days of hunting I have found Plasti-Kote Red Oxide... it's perfect!!
Will paint mine up over the weekend...
Spidey... luv ya paint scheme bro... awesome!
Glad ya got it safe Shiv!
looking forward to this paint up...
Got a couple of kits ready to go out the door if anyone wants one!
Grab these kits guys.... they are cool and anyone from Europe... Plasti-kote Red Oxide is your paint...
Gav, will PIMP this blaster up soon... did I tell you I may even add a hint of Gold to it.... , lets face it, it's never been out of the holster has it?
I was just reviewing this thread and forgot to share pics of my ESB pistol… The paint job is slightly idealized and the trigger and pins were not installed when I took this pic. If I recall I just used primer red, which I think is a little bit off. I’ve been going through the Floquil colors and think there are one or two that may be closer to the screen used color. I may end up repainting it, if I find the time. The other blaster in the pic is one of the Bespin security blasters (cast off of a screen used one).
Nice work on the weathering Jon... I'm glad ya finished yours off too!
Impressive collection ya got there too!
Ok folks, here's my first coat of Red Oxide.... need to wait 15 mins between each coat.... Once fully coated, i'll start with the first layer of weathering on the grip to add dark weathering...
Then onto the main Ali barrel afterwards using gunmetal...

Nice start shiv....
Look forward to the updates!
More kits available for the ESB guys out there...
Will post a few updates on Sunday, gonna give this base colour at least 24hrs to dry solidly, then i'll spray on the black (very lightly) and then dry brush with silver....
May use a little bit of Gold too.... may as well bling it up...let's face it, the blaster has never been out of the holster..... lol
I'm gonna use gunmetal spray on the Ali barrel and then use steel wool to give an added weather effect... (well that's the plan...)
OK folks, I applied some gunmetal spray to the grip and this is what it looks like now...
What do you think? Big change from the initial base layer?
Have also sprayed the Ali barrel and muzzle... (may rub off a bit more paint though... lol)
I just have the trigger to add and some light dry brushing and that it.....

I´ll bump here because i´m interested in a Mojo Fett sidearm. i spoke with him and if any other interests, he will eventually make a small run.
Nobody interested in a sidearm from Gav.
If anyone interested in a new production run please post here!
I would be down for one in a couple months at least.
Hey I am deffo in for one of these

Nice! Now we are three.
Two more and we can talk with Mojo.
I already have one of these but I can recommend them to anyone. This is the best sidearm replica you can buy.
I'm interested pending price!
I have been interested in one of these sidearms for a while now. I am in!
I'm interested, I do not have a sidearm yet.
Gav mentioned to me that he may do another small run,so I'm in for one also,if it happened!
If you are & they're affordable, then put me down for one please.

They were going for $199+shipping last time they were offered, if that's any indication to you.
Thank you Locitus.
I'm so in for a run
