    Ok, here is my 2nd, well kind of 3rd version of my blaster. Just can't seem to be happy. This time I am fairly happy with it. Here is my version 1-



    Here she is now. The biggest changes are in the body-



    Also made the stock look nicer, and added the greeblies-

    yes, indeed very nice! if you are willing to go a little further, I would definately round all the edges of the wood with sand paper... the corners look too square.

    but the rest is awesome!

    Definately nice! I agree with fettenvy. Hit that stock with a little 160, and you will be dead nuts.

    Yep, she is scratch built goodness. Thanks for the feedback guys. I agree on the stock. I hit it the best I could by hand. It is solid oak. I am trying to find a short loan on a belt sander or something. I used WOL's templete for the stock- perfect templete I will say. I did have to cut it down about an inch and a half. My arms are a little short

    hehe, yeah almost forgot about that. That my scratch built Anakin EpIII/Luke EpIV lightsaber. That's actually in progress for a version 2 right now, waiting of grips from Blastech. Have to post pics of that when I'm done. Well, I'm assuming everyone likes the stock, so I will probably repaint it tonight.

    Great work! I love scrtachbuilt blasters, and yours is excellent. Could you post more progress pics, or some tutorial-type tips?

    One thing about the stock, is it a bit dark? Could you work with a lighter stain?

    Hmm maybe its a little dark. I used kind of a dark stain, but also misted black spraypaint over top. Have to check the reference photos again

    Hmm the stock is pretty dark. I may have to rust it out more though. Not sure why wood is rusty, but....
