Since my allotted budget for my kit has been spent this month getting my helmet (because why start with a flightsuit and vest so I can build my kit from the ground up? That would only make sense), I figured that any Mando'a worth his beskar should have a proper blaster or twelve.

And seeing as I haven't made a prop in about five years and the only one that survived more than a month before getting scrapped to make a different one is somewhere in Texas right now (Jesse, if you're still on this site you better not have lost that blaster!  :laugh:) I figured I would start small, and simple.



Just kidding.

Still not done yet, I need to try and find something that I can mount underneath the barrel to flesh out the overall silhouette of the pistol and I'm not hugely happy with the top of the frame right now. Any advice welcome!

(I also need to pick up more electrical tape, super glue, epoxy, dremel heads....*sigh* at least I have a Dremel now. Can't believe I managed to make any blasters at ALL with just a small hacksaw and a pipe cutter back in the day. I'll try to find my old threads and show off my previous work in here)

It's looking good and it seems you have a great supply of guns and parts. I'm actually more than a little jealous.

Thanks! I work at an airsoft field, and one of the little perks is being able to go "Hey boss, we're throwing out all that boneyard stuff right? Cool, cool....give you twenty bucks for the lot."  :laugh:

I still have all of this as well. Incidentally, if anyone sees anything they like in the bin or has any ideas for a blaster that they can't do themselves due to a lack of materials/time, feel free to shoot me a PM. I'd been meaning to start doing commission work anyways to get some income for my kit, doesn't hurt to start now.



And as well, the mk 2 variant of my blaster pistol. Ignore the arm and cat tail, I was using my girlfriend's lap to angle the gun for a picture and the cat's tail to try and get some proper focus on my phone  :laugh: I don't know what kind of satin finish was used on the gun, but dear lord it plays hell with photography and light reflections. Which is strange, because it really isn't that shiny IRL. No way to weather it either as far as I can tell, the pistol I use FOR airsoft is in the same satin color and the damned thing still looks new despite being about five years old and to hell and back.



I also found my old build threads, so here is ONE photo of each of the guns I've made previously instead of a complete dump  ;)




EDIT: It's worth noting that everything up to this point with my new blaster was done with a handheld hacksaw, pipe cutter and hit glue/tape/superglue. Now that I have a proper dremel, the sky is the limit!  ;D

All look rather spiffy. Would take you up on custom stuff, but importing to Australia is rather impossible lol

Challenge...accepted?  :laugh: I have no idea if that's true or not, but I would think that the shipping would be astronomical

Anything resembling a gun or knife gets stopped at customs :/

UPDATE 2/26/17:

Finished a second blaster, this one is less of a combat pistol like the first one  and more looking like a pocket disruptor pistol  :laugh:




EDIT: I'll probably cut the hammer spur off sometime this week, as soon as I get more cutting wheels for my dremel

UPDATE 2/28/17

Has it really been less than a week since I started this? Why, how time flies.

My primary blaster pistol (one of the two that will be going onto my personal kit) has already hit the mark 3 stage. At this point i'm pretty satisfied with how it looks, enough of the outline of the base gun has been broken up that i'm confident in the overall shape and disguising of the base, and there's just enough greeblies on the gun to attract the eye without overloading it with detail:




And a shot of it in the holster, I was pleasantly surprised to see that A- it still fits and B- the larger rear sight of the base gun allows the retention strap built into the holster to slip over it and keep it quite securely locked into the holster.



I expect this will be my last post in this thread for a few days, I want to concentrate on cutting out my armor templates, researching on good places to get a flightsuit without breaking the bank (bills are due this week, so all my progress on my overall kit is about to come to a screeching halt) and working on some concept drawings. Once all of that is out of the way, I may start tinkering with a carbine, just for fun.

As a short addendum, the pocket blaster has had its sights ground off, the hammer spur cut away and a plate glued over the back to give it a more streamlined appearance. Now it looks a lot more like a pistol that a pilot would wear in a shoulder harness, much like the P22(6?) based blaster pistol that the Rebellion pilots in TFA were wearing.

That turned out great and that's a really nice holster and belt. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the pocket blaster.

I'm close to satisfied with it, I may cut into the slide a little and run some more wire through it. Not really sure where else to go with it, as there really isn't a lot of real estate space to do things with and I want to keep it as streamlined as possible

Very nice gear, I quite enjoy your Makarov based blaster, simple and elegant, as promised! That holster looks great, as does your primary blaster.  Im quite jealous of your job my friend, I love air-soft; I have a full set of tac gear and cammies for the infrequent times I can play. Are any of those boneyard pieces still available? Pm me and lets talk  ;)

Wow, amazing job on the A180 blaster!!  Really...I think I like that better than Jyn's.   8)

WOO! I did something right!  :laugh:

I like it a little more too...It's got bulk without overly destroying the sleek lines of the Luger (something that massive bull barrel  and brace does on the A180) and it's more realistic that I could land a shot farther than ten feet with this one because, unlike Jyn, there are actual sights on this thing  :laugh:

EDIT: It's a shame I've only got the one holster on my belt, because I have a second navy-pattern base gun where the colors are swapped -- black frame and toggle, silver barrel.
