    4 Weeks Ago - Jul 25, 2015, 11:50 PM - 2 SPOTS LEFT!!! MLS "Trooping" ROTJ EE-3 blaster SALES THREAD #1

    INITIAL RUN OF 6

    I wanted to make my "Beast" of a blaster lighter. Thought about backfilling some pieces, hollowing some out, etc. Then thought- what if...

    Anyway, the initial tests worked. A full, sturdy, 1 piece superlight cast of my ROTJ EE3 blaster. Make no mistake, with the expansion of the foam and the pressure excerpted by the rapid expansion of the foam, the cast needs trimming and filling on the seam line and pour spout. the good news is the trimming can be done with any hobby knife/ exacto blade rather easily. aggressive sandpaper also digs into this stuff pretty quick. The foam has a nice closed cell finish everywhere until you trim or cut into it to trim it. Total trimming time is maybe an hour? After trimming, you will need to fill the seams where you trimmed or sanded. I recommend using a product call Icing if it is available to you. Otherwise, bondo or a similar body filler works great. The tip of the barrel will also need to be cut/ drilled out. You will have some time filling and sanding the open celled areas. The more you sand/ trim, the more you will need to fill. I will be tweaking the mold for ease of completion, so you may not receive the raw cast as pictured.

    Basic ROTJ Trooping blaster kit weighs in at a feather light 13 oz / 450g.

    With the basic rotj trooping kit, you will receive the blaster, stock greeblies, breach greeblies, barrel flanges and scope blocks . Pics to follow.
    With the full rotj trooping kit, you will receive the blaster, stock greeblies, breach greeblies, barrel flanges, scope blocks, real fully functional 4x20 scope, scope hardware packet, and scope add-ons. Pics to follow.
    The resin pieces will need to be sanded before installation.

    Full version weighs in at 1 lbs 3.6 oz / 560g. This finished version is pictured with resin greeblies and scope kit.

    To my knowledge, these are the lightest kits on the market.

    $200+ shipping for the basic rotj trooping kit.
    $260+ shipping for the full rotj trooping kit.
    Call dibs in thread to reserve a spot while we sort payment. After the initial run of 6 I may focus on the ESB version of this blaster.

    @Deriak @Saturniid19 @Furious Ive decided to not do a close trim on these before shipping. It will help protect the blaster during shipping. They will clean up easy enough with a utility knife or a dremel cutting wheel or tool.

    I will leave this run open until Sunday night, at which time I'll be switching gears and getting an ESB version ready.
