    Non-Canon, but looks cool.

    Finally installed my Heiland innards onto my ESB EE-3

    That looks cool bro! I got the same end with my Heiland, but I have been thinking to use mine for a lightsaber I am working on. It does have a really good look in your blaster though!

    Very nice! I don't care that it's not 100% accurate, it looks alot better with the insides showing.

    I didn't know Boba carried an E-11 though ..........someone has TK's on the mind. jk man

    I think I visit whitearmor.net more often than TDH as of late. Boba carries in E-11 in Battlefront II, haha, but the REAL Boba uses an EE-3 though

    I always debated about installing innards, but kids always shove their fingers up the barrel. I figured this might put a stop to that, and make it look better in the long run!

    I purchased them from shabad about a month ago, and it took me a month how to get them in there without using a hammer and power tools, haha. Turns out, a screwdriver was all that was required

    Good ole Battlefront II, he will probably be carrying a Lewis gun in III.

    Do you have any pics of the innards out of the gun? Just curious as to what they look like.

    Looks just like mine...except I placed mine a bit father inward on the barrel. Definately adds some realism!!!

    I "assembled" the heiland, but with GOOP on the innards, then I took the bits that keep the innards attached off of the tube once the glue dried

    Not sure, might as well send him a PM. Took me forever to find someone who had a set, been looking for about 2 years on and off.

    Thats exactly what I did too!!!! Then I took out the small screw that was in the center of the gutts, drilled the hole out bigger, and put a long thin bolt in there. That way i can shove it into my hyperfirm, and its perfectly centered!!! Worked well!!!

    Very nice. I like the look too and am doing something very similar.

    So I've been noodle'in how the flash tube sits in the blaster. What's the best way to keep the tube in there. My barrel is 100% hollow the entire length. I've got a 3 cell tube (good that I don't have to cut any part of it, since the entire tube is hollow). I've got a few ideas, but am interested on what others do. What did you do Andy?

    I unscrewed that black bit sticking out of the innards, then I slide the innards in the tube with the glue on the inside of the tube. Then using the holes provided on the tube, I screwed the black bit back into it, to hold the innards in place as the glue dried.

    They are right side up, everyone else wears them up side down

    ESB Carbonite Chamber, that check out how Boba wears his knees. This is also seen in pre-production art work, they also fit better like this. IMO, how they were meant to be worn.
