    Seeker's Pre-pro Sling pistol

    Just wanted to share a work in progress on the Boba Fett Pre-pro Sling Pistol. This is a c[FONT=Calibri]ollaboration from a local group of guys that alwasy wanted this pistol. You know who you are. Since the knowdlege of the Kaiser and a few other small things that have come across, we were finally able to get pretty close to what appears on the Pre-pro Fett. There are a few things are still missing. Hopefully we'll be able to find out what they are before it's completed by the end of June. At first, these were being made only for the group, but since there was alot of talk about people doing and working on the all white Supertrooper fett and the pre-pro Fett, we decided to sell a few.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Calibri]Again, this is a work in progress, tell me what you think.[/FONT]

    That is so awesome, Turo. I like how you incorporated the real Kaiser unit into the sculpt.

    It looks fantastic!! and it's not even done yet :P I will definitely be in line for one of these. I can't seem to find anyone else making them currently, and to top it off, it's one of the best I've seen. Keep up the good work brother Arthuro.

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah Mr Fett - The main block is being made to fit the real Kaiser in case anyone has them already. In the first limited run, they will be sold as a kit with all the parts. Later on, I could do separate parts to fit the Kaisers.

    Re: Seeker's Pre-pro Sling pistol

    Wow, i started a scratchbuilt sling pistol awile back using some templates Alan sent me and some real kaiser parts, but this is by far the most impressive project I've ever seen in regards to the pistol...pretty impressive in comparison to a lot of other projects.

    I'm just amazed you've taken the time to mimic the injection molding style with the silicone molds.

    Obviously most blaster and prop projects we see are solid resin or polyurethane



    This is going to be amazing, it pretty much already is.

    Testing armatures and hardware with white resin. The final resin pieces will be heavy duty high end black resin. I’ll start a new interest list in a couple of weeks when I start making some black castings and show a final prototype.

    Arturo, that is just AWESOME!!! I absolutely LOVE how much attention to detail you are putting into these and most importantly, that you are making exact copies of the Kaiser available to all! Can't wait to see these in person!

    Those are freaking awesome. Simply beautiful.


    Question:
    What are those "kaiser" parts from?

    also, are you still offering one of these for sale?
