    McQuarrie Fett style blaster kits - 5 in hand, ready to ship

    Hey all,
    I've recently completed a short run of my McQuarrie style Fett blasters based off the Gentle Giant statue that came out a few years ago.



    They are 1:1 scaled (or at least as close as I could reasonably get them while keeping the proportions intact). Each kit comes raw (all sprues are cut off and very minor cleanup will be done before going out) and is cast in SM305 bright white resin. Detail is excellent and sharp on these and every effort has been made to hide the seam(s) on corners and edges where possible for easier cleanup. Bubbles are minimal and virtually non-existent...meaning there is only 2 or 3 low profile areas that have them and they are small (pics to follow showing where) and are easily filled in with bondo or putty of your choice.
    I currently have 5 in hand and ready to ship (with intentions to cast more if/after this run sells out). I have not yet had a chance to make an instructional video tutorial on these, but hope to get one posted up in the near future (they're pretty straightforward and easily assembled). A quick word on cost: These kits take up quite a bit of resin due to their size (not to mention amount of silicone needed to make the molds), and are difficult and time consuming to pour (I poured these about 3 different ways and had to change the sprues on them twice before settling on the best oriented method). I've based my cost weighing in these factors which I feel to be a reasonable and fair price...also (and I'm not gonna lie about it lol) I really hate casting so that gets factored in as well. :P
    That being said, I will be posting these on a few different forums so they may go pretty quick, but if you happen to miss out on this run don't worry cause as stated before, I'll be casting up some more after this run sells out.
    Cost for each kit is as follows -
    1 kit (includes pieces pictured - body/handle/grip, stock/butt, cone tip) - $220 shipped (CONUS) (includes pp fees and my handling and packing), int'l extra
    1. B. Kenobi (SOLD, processing)
    2. Megatron SOLD (shipped)
    3. Boba Die Wix SOLD (shipped)
    4.
    5.
    Pics!














    Here are the two bubble areas I referred to earlier. Again, pretty minor considering how difficult a piece this is to cast. The first one is just under the main body at the back of the grip/handle, and the second bubble is near the muzzle (at the bottom, of the round cylindrical piece) that has not quite broken through, but still merits mentioning. Out of the five castings I did, I was not able to find any other bubbles.



    As always thanks again for looking and please feel free to comment/ask questions by either posting in here or pm'ing me. Thanks!

    Just wanted everyone to know that I got great news back from the doctor last week and surgery went well. All skin cancer is clear and gone (for the moment). I have a follow up and one more test to go. That being said, I'll be starting up the shop again and can now commence with taking orders. Thanks to ALL of you for your support, prayers and concern, (and patience) it really means a lot!

    Wow, that is great news!

    Oh, and it's good to hear the cancer thing is cleared up.

    Just kidding man! As great as it is to hear you are opening up shop again, it is so much better to know you are healthy. You must feel like a weight has been lifted.
