    Crisisfilms,

    Like with the found ROTJ LEDs, I'm still sourcing for em in all the weird places and old shops.

    Hell, just a few days back I found 2 reasonably priced REAL WORLD NOKIA Matrix phones.

    If I'm unsuccessful, no worries cause Mardon will be casting em for sale. As for the ones pictured, I got em off a good buddy living in Europe.

    Stay safe.

    Tim.

    Yes Tim...thems be the ones I'm talking about. Now if I could only find some darned barrel rings that are right on I'd be home free.I've spent about 4 hours this weekend pouring over pages on ebay for all kinds of "rings" with no luck.

    I believe the "push rods" are always on the ESB, though I don't think it's ever been proven that they're on BOTH sides.

    Only one stock greeblie on the ROTJ has been identified (the forward one) it's V8 kit part #92 -Starting Gear Case Cover (1977 model kit or earlier only).

    The "split plugs" are actually AM aerial/earth connectors from European radio tuners. So far only the FM type have been found (pictured above)- the only difference is the shape of the prong holes.
    I also have these being cast right now (only 'cause no one else seemed to have them and I needed two more).

    That's a great help, Chris. Many thanks.

    Mardon is looking to scratchbuild the ones we can't source. I've almost gone blind looking for good ref pics of these and made some interesting discoveries on the way.

    I was thinking about the "push rod" or connecting rod (which ever you know it as) for the ESB Blaster and where it is located. My thought was this...Maybe when ILM put it together they were thinking about a "safety" switch for the blaster and added the connecting rod with that function in mind. Thus it would only be on one side. Just a theory.

    Here is one of the few decent pics that shows what might be inside the box on the ESB rifle's stock.

    Weren't those agreed upon a while back as being some Euro split plug covers or something to that effect (or am I thinking of something else on the ESB stock)?

    I believe this is the part located in between the split plugs (unless your thinking of something else )

    Yup, you're thinking of the parts to the left and right of that item. This is a box on the center of the stock with some greeblies inside.

    Gotcha. Any theories on what this part may be?

    I am completely stumped. I am hoping this pic, as poor as it is, at least generates some ideas. The box appears to be almost like a reddish metallic colors in most pics.

    Jan 5th 2004.

    I just updated the first message in the thread, to show that I only have 5 x sets of blocks remaining.

    The ad is listed in the cargo hold.

    I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes here, but for any Australia Fett-fans out there that might be put off by cost of shipping etc from The States, you can obtain a VERY similar item from your local "Dick Smith Electronics" shop.
    They come in packs of 2, and I just bought 2 packs for 9.95AUS

    and yes.......I squealed like a girl when I found them

    All of the sets of blocks have now been sold.

    I don't plan on getting any more in, unless there's a large order (at least 20x sets).

    Thanks to everyone who bought them, I hope to see lots of ESB BlasTech rifles on the board!

    Merged: For the Hardware Lovers - Split Plugs from Styrene

    Here is a quick an easy way to make a "hardware" split plug from styrene. Tools needed are an exacto knife, drill, some type of rotary tool (Dremel) or round file, glues, sandpaper, and Bondo filler.

    I made some templates from a picture of the split plug (I think this image came from the RPF - sorry I'm not sure who posted it). These diagrams should line up over each other to create the depth you need to create the plug. The diagram should be 3.25" wide x 1.25" tall @ 100 dpi.



    You'll need a sheet of 1/16" styrene. If you do not have access to a hobby shop, you can get some from Lowes or HD. I bought a big "for sale" sign to use.

    Cut this part out first.

    The holes in the center need to be drilled out. The dotted line boxes on the either side of it need to be left on there. This material will be removed with your Dremel or file.

    Next, cut these 3 pieces out.

    The holes need to be drilled out. The dotted line boxes on the either side of it need to be left on there. This material will be removed with your Dremel or file. I used super glue to attach these pieces to the base piece.

    Next, cut out these 3 pieces.

    The holes in the center need to be drilled out. I also used used super glue to attach these pieces to the base piece.

    Now, you can sand and clean up the pieces. I used JB Weld to fill in the outside wall of the sections. This added extra holding power, and it is a good sandable surface you can shape and use to hide any bad cuts.

    Take your Dremel tool (or file) and remove the dotted boxes. Refer to the first pic to see how the side are concave on the original piece.

    Paint with primer.

    Allow drying time and then fill anything that needs filling with the Bondo filler.

    Sand again, and repaint.

    If I can borrow a digicam, I'll post a pic or two of mine.

    Any questions or comments, feel free to post.
