    Jul 20, 2005, 9:12 AM - ESB to ROTJ blaster conversion... #1

    well after the jet pack, cape, gauntlets and partially the flak vest.. it is now time for my scratch-build-ESB-blaster to go for it aswell.

    not much to show yet, because my parents will be back next tuesday with the digi-cam, hope to have it all done by then.

    anyway the main barrel (black part here) is lengthened a little longer, and the silver part was sawed off a few mm.

    added the strips on the thing and some rubber rings.

    and well... i think it looks ok.

    also filled the stock...about to sand that so it won't look like wood anymore.

    also going to scratch-build a scope, since the ******** who'd order it for me pulled my leg, and hee I was thinking he was a friend, anyways... more pics next week...

    That looks terrific R Boba! What are you making that out of? Do you have shots of your raw component stage? It's coming along very impressively.

    thnx , but it was not possible without TDH.

    I used templates from WoL ( a member here), and plexi-glas was suggested to me by another member.

    pretty dumb that I didnt figure that out myself, as I had worked with it before (my armor, shin tools etc)

    anyways, i made a few sheets of it and some templates from the blue prints of the real webley gun from WoL... there it is, little fragile though.

    It's becomming more fragile because of the extra weight that's being put on the barrel (with the extra pvc pipe, scope, strips etc etc...)

    so I'm thinking of recasting my own work once it's finished, anyone have tips on that one?

    finally... able to post some pics...

    nor progress pics unfortunally, my parents had teh camera with them on their vacation...

    anyways, primer is on, although it doesn't hold well to the rubber strips...

    the right and left view...

    the greeblies and scope are incredibly inaccurate but...I think it looks ok...

    the scope are 2 flashlights glues together and the "greeblies" on the stock are joints for doors... uh... the strips (of wich 2 look very crued and uneven... well with paint it'll look like battle damage...) are car window uh.... dryers..?? how do you call that in english... things go ...left...right....left...right when it rains...

    base color is on...

    very basic, it's still way to shiny, no weathering what so ever...

    it's not really black, it's a grey/red/blue like mix, looks kinda right to me, juding by the MoM pics anyways.

    tommorow I'm gonna wash on some colours, from red to silver and do the brown rust thingies, then all that's left is some black mist to dull the thing down.

    hey that looks cool!!!
    not to much, just right actually.

    But I'm gonna try a MoM paint scheme, alot of colours in it actually, and no silver scratches what so ever. there is some rust though.

    gonna show progress pics as I go.

    if you want to know what to expect in form of a good or bad paint job... check these threads...

    ok, I skipped the rust, as I am not certain they are just dirt from handling over the years in the LFL archive, or rust spots put on onpurpose.

    but here it is... finished.

    because a few months ago my scratch blaster broke I was now scouting to start cusomizing one of those kenner E-11's into a custom star wars gun that would just look kinda cool.

    well I'm not goin to change much, as it will only become more and more fragile.

    I used 2 small screw ring thingies and 2 small pieces of wood. I screwed the kenner open (wich was a pain cause it's also kind of like glued together) and then made 2 ver small holes in the seam line where the 2 plastic halves come together.

    screwed the small ring thingies into the small wood blocks, insterted them into the gun at the small holes and put the Kenner back together... tada...

    I'm probably going to add a flashlight of some sort, and if I can find one a laser pointer aswell... and some nice coolie paint job like the one above... maybe weatherd some more...

    might do something about the kenner scope lenses aswell... they are TOO fake...

    not going to fill the screws though, as that will make it impossible to take it appart in the future for fixing or adding things... paint masks alot...so no worries...


    the sound fx are still working yyyaahhyyy!!! Just laughed so loud when I heard them!! got this Kenner from a friend from a dutch forum for free and wasn't expecting fully working SFX, I didn't even really care, but now that theyre working... I love em * bzzzt!!*
