    It's a MLC? I think It looks pretty good, seriously.

    Cheers

    yeh its an MLC just used Tamiya Dull Red as the base coat and Tamiya Titanium Silver for the barrel and a few scratches here and there after a black acrylic wash, will probably add a bit more weathering though

    I think that if you put Rub & Buff on the barrel, It will be incredible. You can try And, IMO, nothing more to do

    Cheers

    It's purely up to you Joe... It looks really good and would be up to interpretation as there is practically no ref material for this blaster?

    Maybe a little grim around the hilt as this would be from manhandling it?

    I wish i know how the Marmit folks thought this blaster looked that way it looks.

    Maybe they were giving shots we have never seen before.

    We need to infeltrate the archives photos.

    I agree, whilst the sidearms 'available' are great pieces I'd still LOVE to know what it actually looked like!!

    Here are some pics of mine....same kit, but I just added some greeblies to dress it up a bit and special ordered one of Bradley Fetts' aluminum barrels. I really like it with the aluminum barrel added.

    Nice greeblies! I'm typically of the "it's screen accurate or it's ****" mindset. But this was very simply and tastefully done. It adds alot to the gun without making it cluttered. Kudos.

    DB.. Is this artistic flare? or would you have any screen grabs of such details....

    OR have you simply sneeked into the props archive and stolen the original... JK

    Re: Show me your ESB Sidearms

    Thanks for the kudos guys:o ....I finished it once, but once I secured an aluminum barrel I completely re-finished, re-painted and added greeblies. I assure you it is artistic liberties being utilized as I haven't seen any photos that you guys haven't8).

    From the squared butt of the Marmit handgrip matching the original production shot of the rear of the ESB Fett...the famous Jet Pack shot.....I do think that the Marmit's design is no coincidence....somebody somewhere knows about it.

    I still hold vigil though, that more, ....much more ESB reference will be available....someday.

    Oh wow! Well that is a great addition with those greeblies!! I'd have to dig mine out. JB did some paint on the holster and the gun. We went a tad darker with the gun I think and tad duller on the barrel. As I am going pretty weathered with my ESB.

    Re: Show me your ESB Sidearms

    Added a bit more weathering to mine, give it a more beat up look, also pictured is the holster, sprayed flat black, I'll add some scuffs to that at a later date, now I need to figure how to fix it to the belt, I'm also adding the leather strap seen in the ref photos that goes over the gun to hold it in place

    The extra weathering really sets it off!
