    Jan 20, 2014, 7:46 PM - Scratch Build Webley ESB Blaster #1

    I used WOF's templates on this build. The barrel is a black PVC pipe. I took a smaller white PVC pipe, cut a slit lengthwise and epoxied it inside. I then tapered the front end on a belt sander. The barrel tip is a sink tube. The scope mounts were made from a black PVC coupler and a black reducer. The rest is sheet plastic from a sign shop ABS, PVC not sure. The white is styrene. Plenty left to do. I used HO scale model train corrugated aluminum sheet over JB QUICk WELD to mold the thumb ridges at the rear of the barrel.

    The hand grip was cast in fiberglass. The stock was made from two 3/4 pieces of oak glued together, band sawed and wood rasped to shape. The sling was cut from a thrift store belt. Scope is made from 2 cheap scopes I found on ebay. So far this has been really cheap to make.

    Thanks, thebeans. I started on this last fall. We had some "warm" weather up north, and I did some more work on it. The scope mounts are a little hard to find. PM me for a tip.

    Finally warming up in the Midwest and I can work outside. Here is my progress. This will get black paint and greeblies. It is not completed. I put a slot a the bottom of the barrel that slides onto the screw in my trigger section. This way I don't have to glue it all together and I have the option to disassemble and add later upgrades. The hand grip is a casting of a real one from a board member. Can some one chime in on the gun stock? Should the hand grip attach along the red line down the center, or is mine correct?

    Superb. That is an impressive scratchbuild. I think your line looks the best too in terms of alignment and the lines of the overall webley design.

    Thanks guys. I poured over a lot of images to try to get the small details right. I do know that my "pistol" section is too thick and I have two screws instead of one holding the D grip on. I also have brass screw in the grip and a chose t-nuts on the sling. Still waiting on greebles. I don't want to scratch those parts.

    I'm calling it done. Purchased earth plugs, connecting rod casts and real molex blocks. Made the red box things.
