    Aug 9, 2009, 10:40 PM - Jango Blasters #1

    me and a friend of mine have wanted to do a jango for a while. I got a lid from Asok(awesome parts by the way). and started looking at the blasters. I wanted to cast a set but didnt want to recast something of anyone elses, and I just dont have the money to go and buy a set(or two) so I started the research on them.
    After reading for a while, and a lack of cash flow like I said earlier. I decided to make a set of jango blasters. these are from the WOF templates so I hope they meet your approval. here are the pics.



    I took a look at the drawings and came up with this. the gun frame is 1 inch wide. I used acrylic to make the masters I will cast from. the outer pieces will be 3/8 acrylic and the center part will be 1/4 which will give me a 1 inch wide frame.



    after routing the edges.



    The center part of the frame.



    after gluing and a whole buttload of sanding









    then I took a 3/4 acrylic rod and started to buld the flash supressor on the end. still lots of work to do on it, but I feel like I finally made a little progress.

    Yeah, this thread is lookin good. I would imagine these would be much lighter in weight. I'd love to have a set of MRs but several people have now told me they're a bite to troop with.

    I have a few fabrication hurdles to jump over and while I work them out I figured I would post pictures of what I do during the day.

    funny you should mention that. the way I got my name is much like the old indian joke where the little boy ask daddy how do we pick names for people.
    and the father says "after you are born son we go outside and the first thing we see is your name" the child ask I don't get it daddy. the father explains "well if we go out side and see an eagle diving from the sky , the child is called "diving eagle" or if we see the beautiful stream we call them "running brook", then the father ask, why do you ask "2 horses humping". well it is actually a true story... well about how I got my name anyway.


    also AWESOME work there Bill, your droid is looking awesome. I'll bet mine has yours out weighed by almost three times when done. "for those of you who do not know THAT IS BAD FOR ME.

    wow, the blasters are looking great! wish i worked somewhere i could just whip something out rather quickly like that. i'm working with minimal tools! forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is that case thing you're making? keep it up, can't wait to see your progress(this might inspire me to try & make these things)
