    ^^If you have a hobby shop near your house you can buy small square aluminum tubing for about a buck for 10 inches of it. It works great as a cheap way to make a hollow, aluminum centered range finder stalk. I used an alum and 2 brass on my first one. And although its not great, it suffices.

    Dave,

    Happy you like them. I have gotten stuff that needed so much filler it was crazy. When I make something, I make it for me and my standards. Then just hope others like it as well. The only item I do not like about the pressure pot is that is can be extra flashing.

    Other parts, well, I did the ROTJ baster and MQ-1 parts. Again, I will need them for my blaster and just hope others can use them as well.

    Not sure what I am doing next.

    What were you using for your initial model? It looks like cardboard and resin, but not sure. I've been working on another project (the concussion grenade launcher) with foam board and I was looking for alternative materials due to the fact I would have to coat everything before casting.
