    I do believe that I solved the problem. I cut down one of the clamp pieces that i made and glued it to the barrel it self. Now when I attach the barrel it looks like it is part of the other details. What do you guys think? Still needs a lot of clean up done to the details to make it look all right but it is coming along nicely i think.

    I can't express how beside myself I am!!
    I am SO impressed with what has come out of your project so far. When you first posted what you were thinking of doing I was so skeptical I didn't even post, go ahead, check, lol. BUT MAN you took this idea and RAN with it something fierce!! KUDOS!!! Looks great.

    Thanks guys

    I had doubts my self at first but it is coming out pretty nicely. The details on the pistol did not come out like I had planed but I am happy with the results. I am almost ready to paint. Just finished rounding and smoothing the details out. Just need to think about some gribleys for it and the pistol/stock will be done. I still need to get the grip for the barrel after all that it will be ready for paint.

    This is a great project. For those of you building a budget friendly Fett, this is a great way to get a good looking blaseter without breaking the bank. Keep up the great work.

    I am finally finished with the pistol/stock. It is ready to be painted. Now all I have to do is get the grip for the barrel and I can paint the barrel and I will be done with the whole thing. I am so glad that I don't have to cut another piece of sintra. My index finger is still hurting from pressing down on the xacto knife. What can i say, it was a labor of love and was well worth the pain

    Ok guys I need your help. I need the grip for the barrel. Does any body now ware I can get about 7 feet for less than $5 a foot? That's the only reason I don't have any it is expensive. I hate to pay almost $40 for the grip alone. Thanks guys

    Dude! The greeblies look awesome on it.

    Have you tried making the grip from two pieces of thin styrene or sintra glued together in a T shape? You can use a thicker piece on the bottom and then round out the portion that will be setting on the barrel.

    I think there once was a post on the ASAP board on haw to build it.

    I think that is going to be your cheapest route.

    Thanks.

    I thought about making the grip myself but my finger is numb from cutting the other pieces so I am going to give it a break. Plus I think the real grip will probably look better. I went ahead and ordered it today. So soon I will be able to complete the barrel and then off to paint. I have already painted the pistole/stock today with primer. I found a few flaws scratches and other little things like that so before i paint for the last time i am going to fill those in with glazing putty.

    WOW, it's amazing the way this project is coming out! How did I missed this??? Keep the good work. I can't wait to see the final result. This is what this board is all about...to try to "do-it-yourself" make a Fett.

    Wow! Its looking great!

    I just noticed something...you don't have a hammer on it. Is that because of personal preference?

    Thanks guys

    I did not like the hammer because it is a laser rifle and there really is no need for it. So I just made it more smoothed out. I always thought it was out of place. I also used ESB type gribleys on the barrel to give it more detail.

    Thanks

    The barrel is now black and I have put some battle damage on. I may have over done it a bit on the stock and pistol. What do you guys think? It is not done yet so I can touch up as I go. I still want to put some rust and gray colors on for aging.
