    ESB Recipe

    You will need:
    One resin Webley kit (I recomend Sidewinder's )
    Bit of plastic pipe
    Resin scope
    Resin scope rings/blocks
    Plasticard
    Throw it all together and you get:

    Awesome! I knew it was only a matter of time before you used your skills to buildup an ESB! Can wait to see how it comes out

    Re: ESB Recipe

    I just got my Barrel mounts for the scope yesterday! WOW! Really, really nice looking and worth the $$$$
    Of course, I have his Webley kit as well, and it works like a charm!!!
    Also, got my Heiland flash tube gun in last night for the barrel itself, so things are coming along rather well!

    Hope to have this baby done soon!!!

    Re: ESB Recipe

    Incidentally, the front mount was made to go in front of the Webley barrel and around the flash tube. I believe from studying pics this is correct.

    Re: ESB Recipe

    Out of interest, what did you make the scratchbuilt scope mount rings out of?

    After the success of my ROTJ scratchbuild, I've turned my attention to ESB.
    I'm after a set of blocks (molex connecter greeblies). Could you PM me with a price?Also maybe a set of scope mount rings?

    Also, anyone got any idea where I can find ESB stock greeblies?

    Re: ESB Recipe

    ESB mostly painted, just need some metallic highlights here and there and a wash on the stock.

    Stock bracket on its own is an original for colour comparison.

    Ah, 'tis done. Particularly proud of the wood effect on the stock.

    New owner's approval is all that remains.

    Re: ESB Recipe

    I got the blaster a couple of days ago. Thanks Simon for the fast shipping and especially for the great work on this blaster, I love it!

    I have some questions though about how to finish it. First, I noticed that you put the V8 connector rod only on one side. Is this accurate? I looked at others blasters on the forum and everyone else seems to have one on both sides. I can't find any pictures of the real one that show the opposite side either. I've searched the forum for a while looking for an answer to this but I've not found one.

    Second, I just got my greeblies set in the mail from Omega Man and I was wondering if there were any good ref pics that show exactly where these go. I'm mostly concerned with the attachment of the molex connectors. I am curious though if there is a preference on which way the split plugs face also. One side has raised "nubs" and the other side of each one has holes that the "nubs" would fit in to.

    Thanks for any help. I bow before your blaster knowledge :thumbup

    Re: ESB Recipe

    My painted pics did show that there was a V8 part on one side only.
    As I understand it there are pics of the RHS with and without a V8 part, however there aren't any pics of the other side to say for sure. That's why I stuck to just one on one side. I believe you could have no V8 part at all and still be accurate.
    If you decide you want another V8 for the other side I can send you one.

    I haven't got any of the other greebs to require me to form an opinion on their placement - someone on here is bound to though!

    Re: ESB Recipe

    Hey all,

    I'm currently in the middle of making new molds for my Webley parts as the old ones have about had it.
    This might take a week or two.
