    Looking great man! But I think your first barrel tip was closer to being correct (not so much of a taper going on). Here's a compilation from the guru, Brak's Buddy:


    I'll dig for my drawings too.

    EDIT...here was my initial take on what the tip would look like:


    Like I mentioned in my email to you though, it's going to be tough to get the "definitive" barrel tip until we can find some better, more clear reference pics.

    Again, you're doing a spectacular job!

    Is this this just a project gun or is this going to complete the MLC Trifecta: JP/helmet/pistol?

    Yup! What MaxPlague said.

    The nozzle size was closer before, but the tip needed a slight taper. I could have done a better job of explaining it I think. Sorry! More like this I guess:



    I think what Max just posed it closer. To my eye the end has a slight taper though. I might be wrong. I say we put it to a vote? Or something.

    As for the butt end, I think it should taper out more than just be like the butt is sitting on a squared piece. Like this, though maybe even a little more rounded still:



    You're doing fantastic work Mardon, and I SO appreciate that you're amenable to the suggestions of anal fussbudget's like me.

    Cheers!

    Here's my latest 2 cents...Mardon sent another update pic which I've incorporated into my pic below:



    You can see that the black and white pic of the screen-used sidearm shows more straight lines in the design of the barrel tip. Looking at color pics, you can almost see slight bevels on the edges (called out on my pic).

    What do you all think? Does that strike a good balance between tapers/bevels and straight lines?

    I definitely like the length of the barrel much better on your illustration, Max. However, I don't think the tip of the barrel has that pronounced of a bevel. It seems to taper very slightly, if at all.

    Yeah, you're right TD, I think I did over-pronounce it. Oooopsie !@#$!@#. I should fix it to avoid confusion...

    EDIT...fixed the bevel on above pic. It should now say "maybe slight bevel" you may need to "super-refresh" if you've already seen the old pic to refresh your browser.

    One step forwards, two steps back, eh Mardon.

    Upon further reflection it looks more like this to me now:



    With an overall tapering towards the tip.

    But since I've seen footage of bigfoot that was clearer than the available reference material, I'd be just as happy with what MaxPlague did.

    Hmm. The beveled edges above make me wonder if this was some sort of a sink aerator.

    Cheers!

    Not to be picky but . . . the back end of hte blaster still doesn't look right to me. Maybe it's just me, if it is, I'll be quiet now! But . . . almost looks too . . . stretched out.

    If you could make the little knob thing that looks like a button a bit smaller . . . then almost take what you did and just "compress" it towards the front of the blaster.

    Does that makes sense?

    The first update's back of the gun looked more on to me and just needed the back tip a little longer.I see what you mean Ego.

    As far as the barrel goes I like "jeezcrazy"s take on it,only give that middle section in your pic "jeezcrazy" a larger diameter...just looks too skinny when looking at the ESB pics where the barrel goes back up into the holster.

    Awesome work Mardon! It's only been a few days man, you're ripping this thing UP! lol...

    I agree that the back end looks a little funny. It looks great compared to the marmit but I'm not sure about it's accuracy in some parts.

    Just for conversation's sake here's a pic of my sidearm blaster. It's cast from an original bespin security guard's blaster with a fett replacement nozzle. It's definitely close to his and could be argued that it's roughly the same. Just for reference:



    Keep up the awesome work Mardon!

    I think you nailed it Mardon! Any more changes could only be based on speculation and what "interpretations" people have on how it should look. I'd call it done Congratulations!

    Done like dinner buddy!

    Awesome, awesome looking piece and as close to "accurate" as I think we'll ever come barring some future revelation.

    Now all we need is a holster.
