I like that Verp, looking nice. What did you use for a base? I cut and layered my base from MDF. Getting ready to start working in all the extras now.

Thanks, the shatter rifle, was a 3D printed blank kit, I sanded, epoxy coated, base paint black gloss, cut down barrel, made muzzle/ flash hider, created working trigger with sound effects, wired LEDs in muzzle,  4 different metalic paints, assembled, glued, final airbrush detail weathering.

Any suggestions on a pistol/ blaster ?  Was thinking of a Westar?

I made a Westar 35 out of mdf layers, sintra, and a hardwood dowel. Needs weathering and clear coat yet.

Oh yeah...like the Westar too. Might know a guy who can 3D print one ...love the look of them, might even get 2! Is that crazy?  Weathering really helps , and I think I might stick with the metallic combo I have on the Verp. My custom Gunslinger/Assassin kit is almost done , so hope to post it soon. Thanks for the input bud, Cheers

Lots of people have twin Westars (in both Clone Wars and a 'realistic' design), it's a very popular combination and more dakka is always best dakka for Mando'ade  :laugh: So no, I wouldn't classify it as crazy. It's also a very simple design, I've seen more than a few made from wood boards and a good paint job that look indistinguishable from the 3d and resin-cast versions.

Verp came out gorgeously! That's one of the first ones i've seen in a long time that I would personally love as part of a kit (Don't tell anyone but I'm not a huge fan of the standard variant's overall shape and design  :laugh:)

Kind words Shurik, lots of work went into that baby!. I also installed a working trigger with sound effects and LED lights at the muzzle brake, looks awesome at night.
So, as far as the blasters, I've decided to go with one full size Westar on a custom leather drop-leg holster, and a compact size one  as a left side cross-draw. Will post post some pics soon, again thanks for the feedback.

Went with one  standard Westar and compact one as a backup cross-draw.

Looks sweet!

Quick question, what's the overall length on that Verp Sniper? Strictly curiousity.
