    Oct 7, 2014, 11:20 AM - Syper's Boba Fett Supertrooper Automatic Blaster Build W.I.P #1


    Over the years I have collected parts here and there to someday build a Supertrooper blaster. Well that time is here and here's what I’m starting with. The building has started so I hope to update as often as possible. Please chime in if something doesn’t look right, thanks

    Looking good.

    I know those pin stripe graflex flashguns are hard to find. I lucked out finding one that was stripped by a lightsaber builder.

    I scratch built the aluminium control pannel. Was about the hardest part to make.

    Everything looks great so far! From what I see there, you miss the Glenross dental expansion screw which was glued/screwed to the aluminum plate:

    I know we have talked about the 3 clear parts, but I will need the following measurement to have a starting point for the size of the items:

    There is another missing piece on the aluminum plate, which is part of the MQ-1 calculator, but it is hard to tell which part; I think this is the best candidate (you'll have to cut down the lower half part):

    Here you are spot on in my opinion Levi. I believe I have a theory that proves your hunch.

    This area I have circled, clearly is glue residue we know this, but upon closer inspection this glue residue is a perfect match when compared to the back of the MQ-1 "Reset" piece's back or flat area.

    Another finding I think is interesting if you line up the "Reset-MQ-1" piece with the glue marks the drill hole we see on the far right is visible. I physically placed the MQ-1 Reset piece on the screen and again the hole and the glue marks are a perfect match.


    Drill hole on the far right .................... opening where drill hole would be visible. ?

    Great! Thanks for the measurements and the extra images for the MQ-1 piece. Thanks to you I was able to guesstimate the correct MQ-1 part, as you had plenty images with the calculator disassembled in your Pre-Pro #2 thread.

    I have played a bit with the images and measurements you posted and I managed to do this:

    If you look closer, the lower part of the aluminum plate frame is sanded down, because the plate has around 22mm and not 20mm as you have in your image:

    Yeah Man, Levi’s image should be added to the gallery! I too have never seen that detail on the aluminum panel or control faceplate. Its clearly has the same size and shape on the Glenross expansion part
