    Jan 21, 2014, 5:21 PM - ROTJ EE3 BLASTER (stormrider second) #1

    This is the first project I've attempted, your feedback would be welcome.
    I managed to get a solid rubber barrel from StormRider (this was a second - as it had a few bubbles and didn't line-up perfectly), he also sent me a scope, butt and trigger etc, to complete the ROTJ EE3

    It needed a fair bit of work, rubbing down and filling etc..... still ongoing. See pics

    What type of filler did you use on this? Did it have decent adhesion to the rubber?

    I used wood filler, and it didn't really adhere to the rubber very well, Then I tried flexible polyfilla, but that doesn't rub down too well. so I just kept persevering with the wood filler and some of it seems to stick ok, then I primered and sprayed it, then added more filler which helped. Hope that makes sense.

    Latest pic. Still a bit more to do! I'm going for a Tattoine/Sarlacc vibe with the base.
