    Re: Official Scratch Built Blasters Thread

    THANKS

    I got the toy gun from the local costume shop. It was just a plain old six shooter, "Lone Ranger" style. The scope is a daisy brand from walmart,the orange tip is a funnel,the inner barrel is copper water pipe,the main barrel is 2" o.d. pvc, the fins are 3 mil. sintra, 1/4" glued to 1/2", the stock is 4 pieces of 5 mil sintra glued together, shaped and sanded,made the "grebblies" from stuff I had laying around. The piece between the gun and stock is alluminum. I think I have about $16.00 in the whole gun including the paint.

    I made a template out of paper, traced it onto 3 mil. sintra, then used a plumbers BLOWTORCH to heat it up and shaped it by hand. Be careful, I had to get it extra hot.
    Thanks for the kind words

    It's a good bet he does, since he just took a pic of it.. But something to think about is that his template was made to fit the gun he used. Your gun may be different. Look at the pic and compare it to your gun, and go from there.

    Darth Mule is right,
    I do still have it, but you kinda need to just "Wing it" for the gun you have as a base. Look at the pics of the "Real Deal" and go for it. To cut down on waist, use paper for a template as I did .

    Re: Official Scratch Built Blasters Thread

    Hello, sort of new here still and I'm planning on doing a scratch built blaster to save some cash since the rest of my costume is going to be really expensive stuff from some members on here and elsewhere.

    I think I have the basic idea of how I'm going to make the gun as I've build guns and props before, my one question though is this, does anyone have the exact dimmensions of the gun ie: how long the barrel is, how long the stock is, the connectors to the stock. That would be much appreciated. Thanks! btw all your blasters look great hope mine can live up to them.

    There is however an excellent "Search"-tool on this forum, which I'd deeply recommend using from time to time

    Good luck, though

    Re: Official Scratch Built Blasters Thread

    I started my first Boba costume with a card helmet, which is on hold while I get more vapid gratifaction from making the ROTJ blaster. Everything about this costume is going to be cheap, not having a great choice of materials or tools.

    I used a 1993 Konami light gun 3.99 ($6.approx.) as a base and I made the new barrel out of 2" black tubing 1.50.



    The rest - all the details - are card and polyfilla apart from the butt which is MDF and the scope which is wooden dowel, marker pen lids and paper. Copious amounts of super glue and sanding has made it all rather study.



    I still need to add the details to the butt but I'm not rushing that.



    Its been painted using acrylic which I found very durable and useful on past projects.



    I made some slight changes to the guns design - some were intentional, others unavoidable. But everything is more or less where it should be and its overall size is correct - working from plans and measures in found here.

    Just another scratch built ROTJ-Blaster.

    Thanks to WOF for his awesome templates/blueprints:thumbup

    First picture is with flash, the second without flash.
    The blaster still needs a little bit of weathering.

    I've been searching on how to do a Scratch budget ESB EE-3 Build. I like how Daxceon used the Konami base, but anyone know how he attached the stock connector to the pistol grip?
