Here are some work on progress shots and the final finished product of my Boba Fett blaster mod.

 It boxed.

Sanded then filled.

Only thing left to do is add some passing to the grip. Using a cheap mouse mat and trimming it to shape.

Thanks for looking.

A quick note, vod- The Hasbro EE-3 is an outstanding weapon to be used as a base, but it's a bit undersized for a full-size adult.  You may want to consider chopping it- lengthening the stock, increasing the grip size, etc.

Thanks for the advice . I'll likely do that on my next one. Plan to display this one so not to bothered about sizing it. How is best to increase the sizes? Any tutorials on it anywhere?

Hoping to get ny hands on a pair of these Westar 35's. Were they commonly used ny Mandos? Also do they follow a set colour scheme, or cab I do my own style?

There really aren't any "common" Mandalorian weapons besides the Westars.  Go ahead and use them.  The color scheme is purely your choice.

Was gonna work on the bucket today. However the grey I picked up doesn't look right. So instead I worked on the blaster. Red and grey stripes added both sides and a metallic dusting. All I need to do is add the veneer grips (when I bloody find them).

Not overly happy with my current dagger so I've been working on a new dagger. It's based on Simoprh's Kal Dagger (http://"http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=100143.0") template but made a few changes as I prefer a leather grip. And I only made it from two pieces of 3mm Foamex. It's ready for painting but weather is stopping play :(.
