    Alrighty,

    Mardon's got himself a Marmit Fett...and's itching to make the sidearm blaster...in fiberglass!

    I'm sure interested, anyone else?

    Also, are there any other ref. pics that help w/ the detail on the blaster, or is the Marmit piece as accurate as it gets?

    take care,

    -Rex

    I started this project awhile ago but have put it on hold while setting up my new workshop. I could throw together the reference I gathered for my project if you think it'll help. Just let me know

    I planned on doing basically the same thing, scaling the Marmit with what we know of the movie used pistol (which is very little since we have no pics of it out of the holster).

    Here are my best pics of the sidearm:

    Phil (JMP) has good pics of his own 1:1 sidearm blaster, but it seems somewhat different from the Marmit version. Dunno for sure. Hopefully, he'll be glad to share his immaculate pics on here

    MaxPlague - I would be honored to check out your reference pics and if you could kindly send 'em thru my e-mail (mlcallanta@edsamail.com.ph), I'll appreciate it!
    Thanks man!

    Mardon, I'll gather up what I have and send it your way tonight.

    Oh, and Phil's gun is a re-tooled Bespin security guard blaster based on the Nemrod Galeon speargun, that's why it doesn't look exactly like the Marmit pistol.

    Sent ya an email of the pics I had on my office computer. I'll check my home computers tonight too for any others that might be of help. I'd send you my preliminary "blueprints" but I haven't looked at them for awhile and can't remember how finished they are.

    good luck to you

    Color me interested! There's no way I'm going to pass up a piece like this, especially if it's going to be made in fg. I can barely wait to see the WIP pics, like your jp, Mardon!

    For you guys...I'll do anything

    Okay, I've started on this project & will work on it over the weekend. I'll be sending WIP pics for you guys to check out & critique.

    The Marmit version is simple & I cant see any greebles on it...but somehow, I really like its shape
    It'll be a blast building this!

    After seeing what you're capable of doing with 'glass in the AWESOME jet pack I now have, I'd say you're definitely THE MAN for this job too, Mardon!8). No doubt that this is gonna' turn out great!

    I am doing the ROTJ version but I wont let this pass. You can add me to the list for one, dont need to see pictures, your work is awesome Mardon.

    Mardon, it would be also cool to see done the other parts of the armor that go with your chest armor, like shoulders and collar. I want those parts badly, I have been waiting for an accurate set of those parts for a long time, pleeeease.

    Mardon,

    Not only do you do the impossible, but you do it in record time too.

    I tip my bucket to you sir.

    The pics Max posted are pretty much the best. Since you are scratch building the side-arm, I would only use the Marmit to produce the areas of the side-arm that are covered by the holster, which is just about the whole thing ) Then put that Marmit away and use the photos to create an accurate grip area and nozzle.

    You're truly a pacesetter, Mardon! And I concur with what Rex & Jer posted above I can also already see this is going to be yet another of your creations worth drooling over!

    Hey thanks guys!
    I got a few hours to kill, so the result is what you see above posted by MaxP. BTW- thanks for hosting the pics, man!

    I'll have my worker do some bondo work on the grip by Monday & will send you another pic. I'll also get a quote by then, so Tuesday will be the 'interest' thread.

    One question thou: the Marmit blaster is brown - do you want us to use a brown gelcoating for the Fiberglass, or do you want us to make it similar to our buckets & JP which is grey primer?
    Take note that the gelcoat is not paint or final color...it is just the bare color that the FG product will be done in.
    Pls, LMK asap.

    While on the topic.....do you think we should also explore the holster to place these blasters in? Is that in leather?
    LMK as well.

    Hey, how about FG shin tools?

    Mardon
