Well here we go again. I'm really hoping something will come of this, its through a member on the RPF. His shop makes props, so I'm pretty sure that we'll have a better chance of doing this for real this time.
I sent the WOF templates to him, and asked for a quote for 10 sets or 20 individual blasters parts. We would have everything but the grip made in metal. I was thinking about getting a metel master grip made for molding purposes just how MR and the screen used Hero blasters are.
So he says that he'll be taking the drawings to his shop later this week, and should be able to produce a quote.
I'm not holding my breath though, based on the past few machinist that skipped out.
