    !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    Here is the latest version of the drawings. The trigger mechanism is complete and functional in both single and double action operation

    The next phase will be to create drawings of the scope, ESB extension tube, ROTJ barrel and all of the greebies for both versions. If anyone has detailed pictures and rough dimensions for the V-8 parts that you can send me it would be a great help. I think I have enough information for the rest of the stuff, but time will tell.

    Final phase will be to completely dimension all of the components.

    As always constructive criticism and feedback is encouraged.

    Thank you fettcicle and Sidewinder (of the RPF) for providing the pictures and the dimensions that have been instrumental in the creation these drawings.

    Beautiful drawings! I own a Webley and you really did it justice. I didn't actually expect you to go so far as to dimension the individual components and working mechanisms.

    So do I understand that you didn't have one of these in your hand when you did the drawings? If so, that is even more impressive!

    I can't wait to see the additional drawings!

    Thank you. These drawings are done completely through the use of photos, several dimensions and descriptions of the various operations generously contributed by [/color]fettcicle and Sidewinder. I have never held a Webley and at the current price of $1200 for an original I most likely never will. I have toyed with the idea of trying to locate a bronze one, but I’ve heard that they are few and far between these days. Now with the drawings I’m planning to build my own.

    The goal is to have set of drawings with enough detail to be able to build a working Webley from scratch. It’s been sometime since I have done shop drawings so that part of the project may take a while, but I want to get the add-ons done before I start that phase.

    I'll have to check on that. When the GIFs were created I just choose a resolution large enough to capture the details.

    I highly suggest these templates, I used them for my blaster and it is coming together beautifully!

    Re: !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    I'm confused how I can get these to print to scale. I only have access to Photoshop 7.0. If I change the DPI to 200%, the image becomes huge. Never mind printing at 390%.

    Wizard, is there any way to add a small scale legend to each image so we can scale these properly for printing?

    Thanks!

    One other piece of information that might help is that the length of the barrel is 10.55 inches from the back of the breach to the ent of the barrel.

    I have just ordered a casting of an original Webley from Sidewinder (check it out the cargohold http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=10871 and it was only $145 shipped) and as soon as I have my hot little hands on it I will be updating the drawings as need. Once they have been revised I will be reposting them and I promise to include a scale this time.

    Re: !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    Re: !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I just recieved a Webley casting today From Sidewinder and I will be comparing it to the drawings this weekend. I will make sure to include some section veiws of the chamber area.

    Re: !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    I have compared Sidewinder’s casting to my drawings and for a few very minor misses the drawings are nearly dead on, but they will be revised to match the casting. It is just cool to be able to see how close I was able to get just using pictures as a reference. I tried to show my wife, but she just walked away shaking her head.

    So stay tuned updated drawings are on the way and I will include a scale maybe a 1” grid as well

    Re: !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    I am working on a revised set of blueprints that will include both a scale and a grid.

    Re: !!Update - 3/17/05!! Boba Fett EE-3 Blaster/Webley Drawings

    I have updated the drawings in the first post. I recently bought a casting of a real Webley from Sidewinder and from that I made some adjustments to the drawings and this time I added a scale and a 1” grid to make scaling easier.

    Enjoy.

    Great news that you've now adjusted your drawings based on a cast Webley.

    Good work Alan.
