Remember to cut and past the link..

All I did was paint the entire gun black with acrylic paint (I mixed in some brown for the stock...and added some here and there on the body of the gun for variations in the black). After it dried, I used a silver, brown and a little gold paint here and there. Parts like the scope got slighty heavier doses of silver paint, but what I did mostly was paint on some silver, then wiped it down with a dry rag. This left a nice tinting of silver (did the same with the brown and gold...used the gold here and there mostly on the metal connection between the handle and the stock). Some of the obvious places got solid little scrapes of silver...like the tip of the barrel, around the cooling vanes, the adjustment nuts on the scope, and various places here and there that stuck out more from the gun.
After it was all done, I sealed it with a coat of satin finish clearcoat spray paint! Worked like a charm!!!!!

webchief, those pieces originated with bobadebt. I am not sure if he has any more but that is where they came from!

Really? That's weird. He never mentioned to me that's who he was. I wonder if it was in fact him I was dealing with or simply a person that had bought them from him.

I am modifying the one that I posted above and am finishing up the second piece. I should be done by this weekend and will post pics. After, I post pics, if anyone is interested in a cast piece, I would be happy to talk to them. Look this weekend for the pics, until then, the work-in-progress is a couple of post above.

Would anyone have a clue to what the stock plates are to the ROTJ blaster?

I have really good pics of them but no clue as to what they actually are. They coul dbe virtually anything. I think the chance of finding the actual item is a VERY long shot. If you need some good reference shots, please let me know.

What kind of replica gun will pass for the handle and load chamber of the Fett blaster? I doubt I can get one of thoes WWII flair guns, unless someone has a sourse for a casting. I have emailed both Richies armor and Golden armor, but no reply as of yet.
Do any of these look the part?
Thanks,
ST

The bottom of the grips on those Civil War pistol seem too flared. I remember an old tutorial posted on AYW that showed how to make a ROTJ blaster using a Crossman .357 pellet gun as the base gun. I discovered that Mark B. used a toy revolver for my base gun, but after it is all assembled, painted, and weathered, you can't tell.

Ah, the SIDE PLATES on the stock. I spoke with Boba Debt on this very subject and he said he is having someone make a set for him (and possibly a set for me). They are being hand made. I really don't know the origin of the originals. If I am lucky enough to get a set, I would be willing to let someone cast them. I'll check back in with BD next week.

Here are two diagrams I drew up based on the above pics. I believe they are fairly accurate. Unfortunately I neevr finished the smaller one as I couldn't seem to get it exactly right...

The large plate looks a lot like the inside of one half of a film drying clip I used to have. It was made from plastic. It was used to clamp onto a wet developed roll of film, which you'd then hang from a wire to let the film dry.

Unfortunately, I gave all my old b&w photography supplies away years ago.

However, maybe this will give us a starting point...just a thought.
