    Jan 2, 2015, 5:28 AM - Bossk blaster rifle build #1

    Ladies and gentlemen

    As some of you know, I am currently offering a kit for Bossk´s blaster rifle, based on my real Schermuly and M38´s that I molded/ cast.
    Recently I was comissioned to build one of my kits and I just put the final touches on it...besides of the muzzle tip I call it DONE!

    Here are some pics for you guys to see what can be done with my kits (and I am sure that any talented modeller could do MUCH better). Still...it requires some filling/ sanding in specific areas since the casts (esp. the barrel and the shoulder stock, don´t always come out the way I would like them to


    As a special feature, this kit has an aluminum tube cast into the barrel (instead of the standard PVC-tube) and "somewhat see-through" scopes (used SmoothCast 300 series, which turns semitransparent yellowish. Anyway, once painted, it gives the scopes more "depth" than any solid cast has).
    In addition to that I built the rifle in a way, that it could be broekn down into three main-assemblies: Barrel section (with front grip and M38)/ Receiver/ Shoulder stock.

    The barrel attaches to the receiver by sliding it over the custom adapter I incorporated for added strength, the screw through the hinge and the spring.loaded barrel-catch. The scope-assembly on the receiver section features magnets for easy positioning. the shoulder stock uses four strong neodym magnet, along with a rod for alignment.
    This way the whole rifle could be broken down for easier/ cost effective transport.

    Without further ado, feast your eyes! Comments/ critics welcome




































    Thanks for looking!

    Wow! That looks really good. You did a great job putting that together. The weathering is just the right amount. Nice break apart features on the kit too.

    That is quite the impressive build. The details of the casting are exceptional, and you've brought them out with a lot of subtlety. Kudos!
