Novoc Mereel's Blaster Arsenal
« on: Jan 07, 2019, 02:27 AM »
Greetings everyone! Just a quick post to show some progress on my blasters. You can check out the newly-updated build thread in my signature to check out the rest of my kit!







This is my right-hand blaster. It's modded from a gun I used for Halloween several years ago, with most of its body filled with Bondo, and an extended ammo clip added. It felt pretty swars-y already, but I feel it's lacking a couple small details to really push it over the edge. I filled the small holes in the grip, and built up some parts up with some Aves Apoxie Sculpt, then shaped and sanded them down. I'm really happy with them so far, but need to Bondo the center seams still. It's close! See the end for the most recent picture of this blaster next to the other one.




The other blaster! This is a relic of an airsoft shotgun from I-don't-know-how-many-years-ago. The screw-holes are filled and sanded, but I'm wanting to still fill the holes at the top of the grip. Again, close to completion, but needs another detail or two to really push it into "holy cow that's cool" territory. I'm currently thinking of adding a blaster cartridge right ahead of the trigger guard, but am open to suggestions. I kind of really like the clean look of this one, so I'd even say it's closer than the first blaster.




Most recent image of the two together, both sides. Again, still needing to fill those holes in the former airsoft gun, but so far happy with my progress here.

Additionally, I'll be reaching out to WoodChuck for a DC-15A blaster rifle soon, he's given me a date that I need to check in with him. Honestly it's just my favorite gun from all of Star Wars. Here's a placeholder pic, just to show y'all what I've got in mind.


Thanks for reading!

Love the right hand blaster- I have the exact same one and used it as part of a Vault Dweller costume a few years ago. Nice to see it being used in a Star Wars context as well!

That's my plan as well. I'd love to see a pic of yours for some inspiration!!

I really wish I remembered where I picked it up. I also wish I had a mirrored version with left-handed grips.

Updates!

Did some more filling in of the shotgun grip and some rough sanding.



I also rebuilt the trigger guard of the other blaster with 6mm Sintra and Apoxie Sculpt (seriously this stuff is the bees' knees).

Blaster pistols are looking pretty great. That shotgun you hacked down looks like it will make a fine Briar looking pistol

Thanks, I hadn't considered doing that! I feel as if it needs a greeblie or two to really bring it up to where I want it, but for the life of me I can't figure out what that part would look like. I'm also kind of considering just getting everything smooth and filling in the grips to cut down on the Earthiness and going for a sleek-looking heavy blaster pistol with a nice gloss coat on it.

Updates!! I finally started throwing together an E-11 kit I've had in my possession for about a year. I've got everything assembled except for the scope rail and Hengstler counter that attaches to it. A local 501st member said he has an extra he's going to get to me soon, so hopefully this will be up and running.









Progress on the pistols has been a little slow. Mostly just various stages of bondo and sanding the bondo back down haha. Nothing really crazy to report on that front, but wanted to share this update all the same!
