Trying! I'm at the point where I badly need to paint several things including these blasters, but here in Kansas it hasn't gotten above 28 degrees Farenheit in about two months, and I don't want to die of paint fumes from doing it inside! The lighter pistol is ready for primer and paint, but the heavy pistol (shotgun base one) is needing a bit more filler work before I'm happy.

Hey, check it out, I've got updates!!

Got this  bad boy all filled and sanded to where I want. Here it is before paint:




The grips on this one have been a real pain to get right, but I'm finally pretty happy with where they're at. I still feel like this one needs a little extra *something* to really sell the look.





Additionally, I've got my down payment in to hold my spot on WoodChuck's DC-15A run, so that'll be coming in the near future, as well.

First one is completed! Painted some detail to match my armor's color scheme. I decided in the end I was happiest with the clean look, just really dirtied up. Enjoy the pics!









And my favorite detail:

Nicely done! Digging that end product. How's the other one coming along?

Thanks so much, I'm really happy with how it ended up. As far as the other one... honestly it's not great. I'm really unhappy with it. I feel like every time I do a layer of sanding and filler, and primer it just looks worse, so I've kinda stopped working on it. It's kind of just sitting in my room where I occasionally stare at it and wonder if I should try and re-vamp it, or just scrap it entirely. I put a silver coat on it, but I'd have to scrap at least a portion of that in order to get it where I want it.

In other news, got my email from WoodChuck, and my DC-15A is shipping in the morning, so I'll have it by the end of the week or early next week from what it sounds like!

Hi again! Got my DC-15A in the mail yesterday, and I'm absolutely blown away by WoodChuck's work. Going to try and get it primed and maybe the first coat of paint on this weekend if possible. For now, enjoy a pic dump!

The blaster comes in three pieces that bolt together:




And fully assembled:


Pics of me holding rifle for scale. I'm 6'3" for what that's worth. Please forgive the dumb look on my face in both pics, I was talking to my roommate when he took them.  :laugh: :laugh: The darn uploader on the forums won't seem to accept pics taken portrait style. Sorry about that. :(

A shame I'm building something for Modern/Legacy; that's gorgeous, jealous-making stuff  ;D

You can build something like that for Legacy.  I know of quite a few Mandos using the DE-10 and D-200 pistols from SWTOR...

Dang..... I wish my skills were on Woodchuck's level. That thing is a real beaut. As for your other blaster pistol, what does it look like with paint on it? Post up a photo and maybe we can give you some input on how to fix it. Also, I think that one would look sweet with a scope on it.

Well, fair enough point, I guess ;D

Novoc, where do I find this fella?

To be honest I don't remember. It began its life as an old airsoft pump shotgun, and I stripped that way down and added some greeblies after filling the screw holes.

As requested, here's way too many pics of the other blaster with a layer of silver on it. Seems like no matter how many times I fill seams and gaps and sand them back down it doesn't seem to make much difference. I probably did 4-5 passes before the silver. The Bondo paste on the handle is constantly cracking no matter how thin the layers I make and how I seem to sand them. Maybe I'm jut doing something wrong, I'm not super experienced with Bondo.

Regarding the bondo, your problem might be the mixture ratio.  Too much of one part, and you get bondo that's too hard to work with.  Too much of the other part, and you get bondo that's flaky and brittle.

My apologies; I meant the DC-15A (kit?) and this WoodChuck fella :)

I use the stuff that comes in the tube, so it's definitely not the mixing ratio.
