I met this guy through an auction on ebay. He lives out in Oreon if I remember correctly. I found him by winning an ebay auction for resin knee darts that he made. When I bought his knee darts, I asked him if he had any more Fett parts. He told me about these stock plates. He does damned good work.
He also says he's working on a resin rifle. I'm not sure where he stands on that one.
My solution to the tip dilemma was solved while drinking a Coke! I noticed that the bottle where it tapers up to the opening was the perfect shape. So after some cutting, gluing, and some epoxy work it looks pretty much dead on. Cheap solution and easy to find!
I was in a surplus shop today and found these little nesting steel shot glasses. They look the same size and shape as the ROTJ blaster tip. I got a set of 4 for $10.00. I found a web sight that sells them. It also gives thier dimentions as 2 in wide by 1 and 1/2 in high. If you cut the bottom off and glued in a peice of steel, or aluninum tubing, to make it look like a heavier peice, I think it would be damn close to the real thing. If you look around you can probobly find them, like mine, without a logo.
What do you think Fett fans.
Ah, For some reason I can't get metal out of my head. A plastic funnel would have been a lot cheaper. Next time I will try to think softer....he he, but I still like my metal parts...oooh ya, I like my metal parts. :evil
Hey guys, I was in Hobby Lobby and saw a small wood flower pot. It works great for the nozzle. I had to sand down the rim to fit my barrel of 1 1/2" inside diameter. With a little epoxy to smooth it out and some paint I think it will work great and it was only $1.00. Here is a link.
