    Jul 5, 2006, 6:34 PM - My ESB EE3 blaster in build #1

    hi, i start the construction of my ESB EE3 blaster :
    I used a replica of 357 magnum (toy) , for the first tube i used a PVC tube, the flash tube was very expansive i prefere used a chromed tube from vacuum cleaner and i maked on it a small hole same of flash tube.

    the scope is simply the true functional scope, i buy it in Décathlon center for less of 20 euros.


    i sculpted the form with epoxy past and after it hard i sanded it.





    Now i buy on e-bay 4 molex connector and a small piece (revell's V8 small part).
    that's all for this day !

    First off, that is a very impressive build you're doing there! It's looking great! Keep up the good work and posting images so we can see and drool over it!

    Now, as for the connector plate, you might want to try Sidewinder. His is made from Resin and has a metal plate in it for extra stability. When I bought the kit he sells, it came with it, but he might be able to make one up for you as well as the stock (if you are interested) for a reasonable price!!!

    It looks like a good start.

    However.. is it me or does the barrel/flashtube look too long?

    Yeah, DA you need to make the grey barrel part 192mm or 7.5" long for a start.

    yes it's possible !
    for the size of my gun.... yes i think so ! but with the helmet it's impossible to look in the scope (my scope was functional) now i test and it's OK !
    well i think is not a big problem because the true boba was 1,75 meter and me 1,82 meter !
    Sidewinder, if anyone give me the exact size , i dont make it too long ! i make this blaster only with the eyes !
    Sidewinder do you have the metal plate for fix the stick of rifle and the sidewinder part ?

    It looks good, but is the barrel a little bit to long?

    It reminds me of the gun that The Joker used in the first batman movie when he shot the BatWing out of the sky and it crashed into that church. No offense meant, that was just what it reminded me of due to the length.

    Looks good .....but I also think its too long. I would shorten the "flash" tube 2-3" and the main barrel about 4". That should get the proportions more in check.

    I don't think that the barrel is too long. Too thin maybe. What is the diameter of the PVC pipe you used when you attached it to the gun?

    I love the weathering, but I agree the barrel is too long...

    The rear of the scope should sit just about directly above where the barrel and receiver meet, and the flash tube looks as though it sticks out about 2 inches too far...

    See this comparison of how it looks and how it would look shorter.

    Nice work Ripcode. That looks 100% better to me. Still looks like the main barrel is a little long, but I can see the spice and why you stopped where you did.

    I agree, the barrel itself is a little bit too long, but itself a really nice craftsmanship with a nic weathering !!!

    here is a pic of my new blaster in the rough with what I think are accurate barrel proportions.
