    May 21, 2008, 11:33 AM - My ROTJ Blaster :- Using Sidewinders Recipie! #1

    I just wanted to show off my blaster which i finished 2 weeks ago. It's Sidewinders kit but with a real scope which i won on ebay. Not a real ASL scope but pretty darn close though.

    The weathering was done just as described in Sidewinders thread. And if i can do it.. then anyone can do it. It's super easy and the results speak for themselves.

    now let me bask in your praise!

    (Although constructive critisim is always appreciated)

    Got a Sidewinder blaster myself that I'm really happy with, but the look of yours with a real scope tops it.

    The scope that i found is a "Sussex Armoury 4x20 scope" which i bought of E-bay. Other people have found similar mounts for other models and attached them to a modern 4x20 scope with good results.

    The D-bracket is strudy. I susspect that there is some form of re-inforcement but you'd really have to ask Sidewinder about that. The Sidewinder kit is extremly light so i doubt you'll be having any problems with the D-bracket. unless you are really careless..

    That is a cracking paint job right there.

    The D bracket is reinforced with perforated steel sheet. This allows it to flex somewhat without breaking.
