How's everyone doing? Ok so with having a baby coming this next month I'm really pushing to finish up the last little touches of my Fett "This being the EE-3" I was hoping to get one of the better kits out there but have to start getting things ready if you know what I mean. So I was thinking to myself why not just get the hasbro, now when I first thought about doing this thing I thought " it's just gonna take way to much for this thing to look good enough to take out" and with the money I've spent on my suit this in my eyes is one of the main points of the Fett. So then I decided "hey with the things I have laying around and a few bucks more I could turn this into a half way decent blaster but its gonna take alot of work". The creative juices started flowing and some really great idea's came to mind, so yes my friends it is on! This will be a full mod not one where I will just be extending the barrel and making a bigger longer stock but gonna rework the hole thing over. Here is a list of what I will be doing.
-Doing a all new barrel with new T-Tracks
-Removing the scope and adding the proper on
-Making the base of the blaster wider for an overall bigger look
-Putting on a proper size bracket and handle
-Filling in all seam lines and covering all screws that are not to be seen
Ok then on to the pic"s
The choping block
here I just want to cut the hole thing down so that I could start reworking everything
the first thing I did was do a little sanding to the trigger to give it a better look and fill
came out pretty nice I thinks
after that I decided to go ahead and start working on the barrel. I picked up a piece of PVC pipe 1-1.5 I do believe and cut it to 8'
I then covered up the ends and added the (orange tip to it- sorry can't remember what its called off the top of my head)
Still needing to order my T-Tracks so this part is on hold for the time being
Next I moved on to the part in between the but of the gun and the barrel, here just working on filling in seam lines. I was thinking about adding a piece of sheet styrene to make it abit wider but opted not to because it would make to barrel way to small.
A little putty?
didnt take a pic of the sanded piece but you get the picture
After that is all sanded down I worked on covering up the ends of each side
This was done because when cutting this piece away from the barrel there was a big hole and the PVC piping had nothing to connect to.
Next I moved on to the but of the gun " if anyone wants to chime in and give me the correct tirm for this please do (fill like I'm starting to sound like a retard lol!)"
So then I removed the detail on the side (that just wont do, gonna redo them)
Also removed the back part of the main part " WOW did that not make any sence to anyone else haha"
After looking a pic's of the Master replica I noticed that it was a bit rounder not just flat, so gonna rework that also
Just got a new piece in the mail
My new bracket based off the Webley, also just ordered my stock from Woodman so when that gets here I will be able to start working on that.
This is gonna be a slow process but I think with a little time and determination I think it will turn out to be a pretty good looking blaster. I will keep updating as things go a long and I hope anyone else out there that is looking for a blaster but is in the same boat as myself, I hope this helps.
