    RepCom Bowcaster

    Here's my bowcaster based off of the one used in the Republic Commando video game. Itís not completely accurate to the game because there are some things I changed for functionality, some things I changed for personal preference, and some things I changed because to do otherwise was just beyond my skill. However, I think itís a pretty good representation of what was in the game. Itís taken a little less than 3 months to build. Let me know what you think.

    That is really cool. One of my side projects has been the ACP array gun, but this blows me out of the water. Just Killer.

    are you making the huge ACP Heavy Repeater, the shotgun styled ACP gun, or the standard ACP Repeater? I was thinking about making the standard one, myself. I'd love to see what you've built

    That is a nice bowcaster you made you should be proud. I havn't seen any one else who has made one of these.

    Those intrested in the trando shot gun. I know there is some one over at the B.B.C. working on one.

    the ammo counter seems to jump around on the in-game shots. so i'm guessing the top pic is the one that should be accurate, that's the way it's shown being held.

    Actually the ammo counter should be on the opposite side of where I put it. The in game model is made for a right handed person so I flipped it because I'm left handed

    Re: RepCom Bowcaster

    This is pretty rad. When I do my RC, I'm thinking it would be nice to do the Geonosian Beam Weapon.

    Re: RepCom Bowcaster

    I really think any of the RC weapons would be great projects. The only ones that I'm considering right now are the ACP Repeater and the Conc rifle, but I'd love to see somebody build any of them.

    wish i had this guy on my team!
    Thanks for the high praise, hapa. I wish I could paint my pieces nearly as well as the props for your movie are
