    Thankyou. The base of it is a nerf double barrell shotgun. the actuall barrell it self was a throw away bad cast of a boba fett ROTJ blaster barrell that Solus Keer had cleaned up and kindly gave to me to make whatever with it.

    A two dollar light tube from walgreens. I actually just velcroed it to the side temporarily for the tucson parade of lights.

    Worked on My new DC-17 I bought off of Alden Mortus. Its made by Talon on the Conetroopers.net boards. I believe its one of his first. As sson as I got it I took it all apart to clean it up realign the parts add LED's and am still working on it.Below are pics of the new LED's rails I added to the top. .More to install. and of course sanding,bondo,and painting,then repeat.
    Let me know what ya all think.Suggestions?comments?

    Wait till ya see the finished product.Just picked up more LED's for the front and rear.After the electronics are mocked up I get to start the sanding,bondoing,and repainting of this beast. Hopefully if all goes well she'll be ready for the next troop later this month.

    The DE-10 was a blaster used in a star wars video game.Don't remember the name of it. the actuall artist rendition (prop) was made by Ictan on the Mercs Board and casted and sold by my partner and I at ONE END Productions.I took a DE-10 and cut the front off and installed the larger barrell which was a tail piece to a sink drain. Several layers of paint and bondo later you have what you see above.
    Thank you for the compliment.

    Alrighty. I have upgraded my kit as of late to a Fett Pride Budget helmet and IOA Vacum formed armor. I changed up the color scheme and also added the shoulder cape.
    Later on I will be adding fett style knees and new gaunts.
    Let me know what ya all think.

    Strangely enough these are the only photos I have of the new kit. No stand alone ones. Only on troops. Oh well, enjoy
