    I don't like the chop scope look. But if you can make it interchangeable scopes to mount, it always good to be able to accessorize at a whim.

    this sounds like something I'm interested in. I agree with pretty much everything that's been said so far and I'd rather have a regular scope than the shortened version he's holding in the VD

    Interest thread/suggestions STUNT ROTJ Blaster PIC UP

    i'm a little behind on the updates. Sorry. I'm not entirely satisfied with the look of the grip. I'm having a ton of trouble with the texture.
    Here's a pic of the bild so far, even though its ugly . . .



    The main body needs some more sanding, but is on a solid path to being finished. THe main barrel is sharp, and I'm happy with it. While it's scratch built from Evergreen, I'v still managed to give it the warp that T-track would have. The bomb rack grebblie went together very fast, and I'll cast it up for the other side. It was kinda sick fun doing all the pipe cutting to get the widths to match each other.
    Any tips/tricks/suggestions?
    Thansk for all the interest gang!

    it'll be around that price as the finishing touches are applied. I'll be starting an offical interest thread at the end of the week with photos.
    Thanks!

    Re: Interet thread and suggestions, STUNT ROTJ Blaster

    Nothing substantial. I've been cranking out Scout pistols pretty hard, and they're taking a little bit of time away for the Fett rifle.

    I can tell you that the bracket and the stock are moving along, and truthfully, I had NO clue how big this rifle really was!! Zoinks!! Definatly had some fun whipping into the ROTJ "don't be bringin' that thermal detonator in here" pose!!

    My major hurdles now are the scope and the grip texture. That's about it. I should have pic up in a few days, if everything goes according to plan. I'm also a little distracted while getting my Ghostbuster suit for Marcon going. First time in a long time I've gotten to work on my own suit.

    Stay tuned!!

    Re: Interet thread and suggestions, STUNT ROTJ Blaster

    Yep!! She's almost finished. Everything but the stock grebblies and the handle. I'm mostly shocked just how big this gun is!! Look for the interest thread to start on or around the 15th. The price will most likely be 135.00 shipped anywhere. The ROTJ version will be first, followed bt the ESB version two weeks later. Thanks for being patient guys! Those durn Biker Scouts have been keeping me busy!!

    Re: Interet thread and suggestions, STUNT ROTJ Blaster

    The barrel end will be nice an hollow, similair to that grreat pic in the latest Star wars Insider (the 100 issue); but the whole of the main body will be filled.
    As for the build, it's going well! This has been much harder than I thought, but I'm very pleased with the results.
    From sourcing the bomb rack greeblies, to scratch building the stock plates, to recreating the sag and drag of the t-track, I've had alot of fun working on this. It's always been my favorite Start Wars blaster, and I'm giddy to get on on my shelf.

    I'm positive that in a week or two, you guy's I'll be blown away by this blaster! Thansk for hanging in there with me!!

    Re: Interet thread and suggestions, STUNT ROTJ Blaster

    Nearing the end of the progress, im starting to get pretty interested in this one, especially after seeing a pic... Ill let ya know if im in for one once you put up a pic of the final result

    I love my scratchbuild, but she is showing a little bit of wear and tear now...

    Just wondering, are you going to cast these up in black rubber?

    Re: Interet thread and suggestions, STUNT ROTJ Blaster

    Can't wait to see the results!! I was asking about it being hollowed out cause I was thinking about installing a led for the blaster end. I was hopeing to have it set up so the activation for the led would be near the trigger. What is your personal opinion about this based on your blaster? And again can't wait. Cheers!

    Re: Interet thread and suggestions, STUNT ROTJ Blaster

    I'm so glad you guys are still excited about this! I was so surprised when the Scout Blaster sales took off (I'm casting #'s 40-55 this week), and I felt down right rotten when I didn't give this build the attention I should have beofre we all got hit in the wallet over gas prices (I'm still going to keep the price as low as possible, even though Smooth-On's prices and the shipping costs have gone up too).

    As for the make-up of the blaster, the ROTJ version will be cast in dark grey, and PREPAINTED with all the rust, black, and gold weathered glory. The blaster, cast over a rigid skeleton of high impact, square tube, will be filled with a 'nerf' stlye foam, with an outer skin of harder rubber. You won't be able to get any elctronics or moving parts into it without heavily destruction and modification.

    You will be able to bounce it though . .

    I'll be posting pics very soon fo this beauty, and we'll go form there!! Thanks!
