    Just wanted to post some updated pics that I was finally able to upload off my camera...(internet issues)

    This was a repair/ upgrade on a ROTJ Blaster I built and painted about a year ago for Jimmy Buffett...as seen here: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=15263

    Unfortunately due to personnal issues I was not able to get this back to Scott in time for SDCC, I know I suck .....but it should be with him at Dragon-Con....so check it out if you get the chance.

    I upgraded the stalk connector with an aluminum one, replaced a broken trigger with a die-cast one (no little brats breaking this sucker!!), and replaced the trigger-guard with a REAL Webley trigger-guard.....and of coarse repainted it...

    Thanks Scott for your patience and understanding...:thumbup

    enjoy!

    Looks great.

    I remember the story of when that kid broke that. Just heard a SNAP, turned around and saw that kid putting your gun down with "I didn't do it" look.

    We should rig our triggers so that when someone tries pull it it screams "STOP THAT! PUT ME DOWN!"

    Or better yet ... the actual blasting sound. If it had been rigged like that, the kid would have freaked. Then again, if he freaked out, he may have dropped the baster ... even bigger problem.
