Title: A growing horde
Post by: Tal Choruk on Mar 12, 2020, 11:09 AM
So has anyone found themselves hording blasters for your kit? I'm still a prospect, working towards OM, but I have stockpiled the following:

matched pair of Westar 35s
General Grievous rifle
working on a NERF conversion pistol (need to get the WIP up)
Sith trooper rifle

and I have 3 more nerf conversion starters (cheap lot on EBAY, couldn't pass it up)

It might just be me though, as I have 3 helmets, already as well.  ;D

According to me, I have an arsenal. According to my clanmates, I have a problem, lol.

My current list is eight troop-ready,  and another dozen in various stages of completion.

Troop-ready:
A-180 Pistol
DE-10
DH-17
DL-18
Westar-34
Westar-35 pistol
Westar-35 Rifle(custom bullpup configuration)

In-progress
A-180 Carbine
A-280 Rifle(Endor configuration)
DDC Defender
E-11 Rifle
DL-44H Carbine
DL-03 Rifle(custom design)
DLT-19
Merr-Sonn CC Mares' Leg
Westar-35 Pistol(realistic version)
Custom Verp

Most of those are for booth display, though. I'm curious if you have photos of what you're working on. I'd love to see them.  :porg2:

I'll post a WIP  for blasters sometime tonight or tomorrow.

the Westars are realistic 3d prints by 501st's TK-50976.

I've got the nerf torn dawn and a plan drawn out, but as a bonus - here's a Wip shot of my Bes'Bev...the Mythosaur skull is 3D printed.

i try not to go too overboard on the weapons, but still have a decent arsenal. got 2 A180 pistols(jyn erso's gun), a modified A 280 rifle (rebel trooper standard) and a DC 15 (short clone trooper rifle) as well as a couple thermal detonators. there's a few more weapons around the house, but those are for my wife and other clan mates :P

<Sigh> got caught up in a ShopDisney flash sale. I've added a Sith trooper rifle to my arsenal...

DO you think a fill and repaint (after sanding safety warning will be good enough?

If not, what other mods would one suggest?

Well, the Sith Blaster is for someone with MUCH smaller fingers...mine fill the trigger well near completely.

The Westar blasters are ready for painting tomorrow, and the first of the nerfs is well on the way.

Do you have any pictures? I have a DH-17 I'd like to convert, along with needing ideas for more weapons lol. You won't be the only one around with a "Collection"
