    Mar 17, 2009, 7:53 AM - MY FIRST SRATCHBUILT BLASTER (Progress pictures) #1

    Hello everybody !!!
    This is V-Fett,from France. After completing my first scratchbuilt helmet ( http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=26420 )
    I decided to make a Blaster. Again, I'd like to thank all the members for sharing their building and weathering techniques. A very special thank to my dad for making the stock and giving me lots of ideas (and he's got so many tools :thumbup). I airbrushed the whole blaster using
    -HUMBROL 27001 ALUMINIUM METAL COTE
    -TAMIYA XF-1 Flat Black
    -REVELL Color Stop (Masking liquid)
    It was really fun to scratchbuild that blaster,and this time I took progress pictures !. So here it is:

    Hi !!!
    Thank you for all your positive comments :thumbup !!!

    The gun I used is just a plastic gun I bought for 2 euros (I still have the cardboard target + the darts and the "SWAT Super Police" badge that came with it ).

    Hi !!!
    Thanks a lot for your comment.
    For the stock I used the latest version of WOF's drawings :thumbup(http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...bley+templates).

    For the long barrel I just used a plastic tube.
    I hope this will help you, but if you have other questions, do not hesitate...

    Hi !!!
    The stock is connected to the stock of the plastic gun via 2 screws. It was a little bit tricky because I had to drill 2 holes in the gun stock wide enough for a small screwdriver, place the screws and then mask the holes with Bondo, but this was the only way to connect it.
    Thanks for your comment :thumbup and if you have other questions, feel free to ask !

    Where did you find your gun base? What would be a good base gun if I decided to scratch build this thing?

    Hi !!!
    I bought my base gun in a kind of 1$ store.
    A good base gun could be anything as long as it is adult size (or at least the size of a real gun) and it has to have a barrel so you can put it inside a plastic tube.
    I hope I answered your questions , and if you have other questions , feel free to ask...
