    Pulce self build

    For quite a few weeks now I've been working on a pulce for my Jodo sidearm ... to say getting info on the thing is hard is an understatement,
    So berkal set about a 3D image from there a set of plans for me to work from

    so this is my progress so far

    This is a nice build. I'm surprised there aren't more comments. I think it comes pretty close for a scratchbuild. Nice work!

    Johno has done a sterling job working to the plans I drew up for him. The original drawings were created from a 3D CAD model which was painstakingly constructed over several hours from reference photos freely available on the internet and critical dimensions taken from an original Pulce 40 speargun. We'll be cleaning up this cast to make a final positive from which we can take a silicone mould to cast inexpensive budget resin copies. Naturally, once it is of sufficient quality we intend to offer our work for sale to members of the Dent and Mando Mercs.

    Thanks CC, I was starting to think noone liked ESB Boba ... I've maybe put it in the wrong sub forum, "Boba Fett Costume" might have sparked more of a responce.
    But thanks again for the reply

    Well as people are getting upset about the lack of Fett props being built, I thought I'd refresh peoples memories about my ESB Fett sidearm ... who knows somone apart fromm CC and Berkal may reply.

    I'll start a thread on my WoF mando lid in Jodo colours too

    Oh and I think I've finished the holster

    Very distinctive.
    I'd like to see how the holster is made. Is it just leather, or is there something else used to give it some solid shape?

    It's just leather, The belt loop adds some rigidity to it but it is quite firm as is

    Thanks for the replies guys
    couple more build up pics
    Pre sanding and before I added the barrel


    Holster before polish


    This was the first holster I made for my first/second pulce build, both holsters stitched on my home machine with 2mm leather

    can't find the pics of the second holster build, not that it took a long time hour and a half i think (for the Jodo Kast costume)

    I'm sure you're right. I haven't made mine yet, just talking out of ignorance.

    SK when you do make one, Make it from paper first then when your ready to put the patern onto the leather make sure the patern is the right way up for the best side of the leather to show (I cut mine so it came out as a lefty on the best side of the leather, Just meant I had the rough side on show and it took some extra polishing)
