This is the primary pictorial reference I am using to build a pair of blasters for my up and coming Jaster Mereel kit:


I had a couple Hasbro rebel blasters that looked close so decided to use them as the base for these pistols:


I cut off the barrel & back end of the hasbro and stripped the "nerf" internals. I left the scope light wired to the trigger so it lights up when pulling the trigger.
Added a CPVC reducer coupling on the scope, trimmed the original barrel to mount on the back of blaster body and cut/shaped some PVC piping to make the barrel:


Next Step: More trimming, sanding and shaping to complete fit-up of all the parts.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated  8)

Great start, vod! I'm a fan of DH-17s, and seeing them "Mandoized" is pretty neat!

Following with interest!

I've got a spare DH-17 that's just been collecting dust, so I think I finally know what to do with it... Looks good, Ru'Der! Can't wait to see 'em finished up.  ;D

If you look at the sight in jaster's blaster, it is the rebel one turned around. Maybe to make this, LucasFilm messed with a DH-17 (one of the coolest guns in the universe)

If you are confused with sight, I meant scope but I was tired.

That is an AWESOME mod!  Good stuff, vod!  How well do those grips fit in your hands?  It was a little small in my hand.

Is Cannon the name for them? Because they don't look big enough to be considered cannons. O.o

He meant to say "canon," but they no longer teach proper English in schools.  Easy mistake to make.

What is that awesome piece in the back!?  What that a custom mod, or did you purchase it that way?

Very well done.   8)
