Here's some ESB progress X2, painting finished and awaiting final assembly and clear coat.
Also custom progress made; battery holder and wiring inserted in base of stock, grip area wired and and trigger activated switch installed & fake motor/belt drive attached to barrel. Still needs a custom side mount scope and one or two bits.
TR4059, anything you particularily fancy to greeb up the stock?
Looks incredible!! I cant think of anything that would make it more awesome Whatever you decide for the stock is fine with me, I still cant get over the working barrel.
Two finished ESBs ready for new owner approval.
Windage knobs seperated off for someone.

Yea I wanted a little more fire power, he wasnt able to hit Luke on cloud city and I dont want anymore accidents like that
A bit more custom progress. Found the remnants of a working replica scope I had so used that - its kinda see through but image is small due to it having been chopped in the past.
thats just ******. talk about overkill
Freakin awesome man! I love it, the scope looks great! Thats so cool.
The EE-3x, an experimental rapid fire blaster designed for use against fast moving targets. Each blaster bolt carries less energy but the much higher rate of fire delivers more bolts on target per second than a standard rifle.
An auto target adjust is mounted on the left side.
Only a few prototypes were built due to problems such as overheating and power cells being rapidly drained.
This particular example has been modified to carry extra cells in the stock and has had cooling vanes added to the front barrel bearing area.
That is too cool....the only thing cooler would be if the motor was hidden the scope
Fantastic work sir
The real motor is actually inside the barrel near the back, the side mount is fake I just liked the idea of an external motor with belt drive.
Oh then thats a horse of another color.....saweet
Wow, that looks sweet! Just out of curiosity, how much does it weigh?
Nice! Pretty slick looking unit. The video was great.
Here's a basic diagram of how it was done.
Thats incredible, I couldnt have imagined it to look this great! I cannot wait to troop with this bad boy, outstanding work!!
next question, can you make a green nerf dart firing one, rotj or esb
that is the best custom work ive ever seen... i have a mate who will definately want one of those setups for his custom.. any ideas on a rough price? :P
Got my blaster a few days ago, and not to my surprize its a freakin piece of beauty.Once I find me a flash tube I will post some pic.Thanks for the help SAS:thumbup
Nice one matey, ta for LMK.
Another set of kit parts for a far east Fett.
JS this is your ESB, needs bit of filler before paint - some parts just placed for ease of painting.
Yes!! You do a helluva job.... looking forward to carrying that bad boy!
I hate asking stupid questions , but I couldnt find any prices on this thread. what is the price of a finished standard ESB blaster and on something like the.. Gulp... custom chain gun one?
This isn't a FS thread so PM me for pricing.
That isn't a 'chain gun', chain guns only ever have a single barrel - it is in fact a gatling gun.
NB. The 'chain' of chain gun comes from the fact the loading/firing/ejection mechanism is powered by a chain drive rather than the blowback action from firing, eg. the Apache Helicopter's 30mm is a chain gun.
A common naming mistake made by numerous films & comp games etc.
Very nice!! I'm excited as hell about this as I get to carry it as Fett at the Star Wars Exhibit coming to the MN Science Museum in a couple of weeks....
Now painted up.

Simon...you are a MACHINE my friend!!!
Every kit and finished blaster leaving your factory looks GREAT
Thanks Markus. Another WIP for a USFett.
Very nice Simon! I will be trooping with my custom tom. for the first time. I'll make sure and take some pics.
A pair of builts for a Brit, WIP.
These have experimental scopes using ally tube with just the bells and windage cast in resin.
Looking great as usual Simon... these for BM?
'nother buildup in prog, this time for a board admin (gulp).
I've sourced some chromed brass tube for the muzzle, needs a piece of turned plastic as an adaptor as it just won't fit in my resin barrel.
Gonna put the holes pattern on according to my MPP's layout.
Two builds in progress, basic construction done, needs a bit of putty then ready for paint..
Two ESB done for approval. OSK yours is top, Lassiter yours is bottom.
Looks good!! I approve!
WIP for TK5019, main parts assembled now needs filler in places and V8 adding then paint.
Spot of requested remedial action, red box edge.
Looking forward to getting my blaster
Making another blaster for a member, they wanted a real 4x20 scope (one of the cheap ones). Found one, but the square top windage knob covers offended me. I cast up just the knobs in my ASI windage block mold and milled out the inside so they push fit on.
that looks perfect.....paypal sent...thanks for the red box......can't wait to get it

Made a new part for the V8 conrod base disc. Used the V8 kit's pulley wheel with an added central peg sized to fit the conrod.
I'll be at Dragon Con this year on the lookout for Fetts carrying my blasters, i'll be mostly with the Aliens guys, so if some Brit wierdo comes up to you pointing at your blaster it could be me!
I am very impressed with your ESB Blaster. I clicked on your link for blasters for sale, and do you happen to have a finished blaster with modified chrome tube muzzle for sale? Please let me know. I am very interested. Thanks
All the stuff i make is cast/bulit to order, i don't keep anything 'in stock'.
WIP for a German Fett. Some parts just placed for painting purposes.
Man, that's sweet work. Can't wait to see the ROTJ work. No wonder Nathan recommends you highly.
I could not agree more, I cannot wait to get my hands on one. It will happen one of these days.
What can i say but... GIMMIE, GIMMIE, GIMMIE, QUICKIE... LOL
That looks awesome so far, new mounts look very accurate.......
That's mine, mine, mine.....
How spooky, after I logged on there was a knock on the door....
My blaster arrived......
Look awesome Simon, thanks buddy..... definetly worth the wait... great craftmanship and I really like the red pait around the sqaure stock greeblies....
I'll post up pics later...

Here's the pistols with construction finished. Only the lanyard posts/rings are missing (if you want some putting on?)
Paint wise I was thinking ESB style overall, grips polished to a brassy finish and the chrome tube blackened on the end. Not sure whether to paint the aluminium coupling ring or leave them bare metal, possibly with the groves painted black?
looks great! Pm sent regarding your questions
Final payment sent for my twin pistols! Cant wait to get them!!!
WOW, they look great!
Recieved the pistols today thanks! very well made!
