    That looks pretty sweet! Could you make a tutorial for me as I'm going to need to make one for my ESB Fett!

    I'm pretty lousy at tutorials....I essentially cut the top off the Zapper with my trusty dremel and fashioned a new one out of Sintra. The barrel is just aluminium tubing, and the "flash nozzel" is the casing off a UHF connector

    Nice! Great work DarthBish. I saw a few of the old Zappers being sold at the mall a whlile back. I'll have to see if they're still there and pick one up. I especially like the Barrel tip you made, great idea with the UHF connector.

    Its a plastic plug that joins the aerial cable to the TV, any electrical shop will do them.

    i started working on it this weekend, not going to change much though, ive redone the barrel, but i wont put a ...how you call it... "ring" around my trigger, my gloves are pretty rough and i want to eb able to draw it, especially cause i dont even have a main gun, the EE-3 carbine webley whatever else it was named gun...

    i just bought a cheapo western holster that fitted the gun... should have seen teh poor clerks face when i went to fit my gun inside all teh different holsters...

    anyways, ill bondi and sand an rough up teh slightly altered zapper an trust my paining skills (wich are i may say, FAR better then my scratch building skills...) to compensate most of my poor buildin skills.

    ill post a pic when im finished

    why does the 300th figure boba fett have the sling gun as a sidearm, i saw the pics, and you right, it isn't the sling gun in the movies...

    and yes it is fun to do this

    Definitly a sweet looking peice. But the grip on the actual sidearm has finger grooves, that would be very hard to do.


    Has anyone a screen accurate holster?

    ok i wanr you...but you asked for it...

    im a little further now, weatehred jumpsuit, knees (not that you cna sse heere i dotn have em yet) tk-409 neckseal and last but not least: a true build-up an hevaily edited rufkintoy esb flamethrower (plus new paintjob on gauntlet keypad an missile) ow and a chest light display, ala tk-409 bikelight way...

    incase ur wonderin, forget the crappy blaster, i need a new one, also want to redo my entire armor set (made of cheapo plexiglas) and the helmet is a pre-tdh-discoverd rubies jango helmet, painted by me from pics of starwarshelmets.com...like i said, didnt know of tdh when i did that, so my FG helmet wich i hope to purchase around the summer will be better...alot better.

    the band pic shows teh overall look of the costume... never mind teh creepy dork on the right... that guitar was also painted by me incase ur wonderin...
