The Mandalorian Protector kit is ready for the weekend! Gloves are getting the patches stitched on. I'll get those back in a few days

Looking good, buddy.

The EE-3 looks really small and comes across to me like a repainted toy.  If anything, I'd like to see the stock get extended so it looks a little closer to the full size version.

Can't wait to see all that gear on you!

Well... Poodoo :(
It was a 3d print I bought that I thought to be of better dimensions than the Rubies one I was using. The problem is I can't afford the hefty $200-$300 ones that everyone recommends at the moment and I don't exactly have the facilities or equipment to make my own

Yeah, sorry man.

I think the barrel looks great, but the stock being on the smaller side is what makes it look like a hasbro EE-3 to me.

No but they're a dime a dozen anyway, what do you have in mind?

Hey, it's no big deal Mi'ix. That's why you're a Brigade Marshall and that's why I'm here; for input

But I am open to suggestions guys, so lay them on me

The BRLs want you to maintain the canon look for blasters but allow for modification so long as we can still tell it was a canon blaster.

One of my clan mates modified his smaller EE-3 by popping off the stock and D brackett and turning the carbine into a heavy blaster pistol that he carries around on a sling.

You've got your DL-44 so you hit the BRL requirement already for weapons, but consider that food for thought on the EE-3. :)

Honestly, the angle of the camera doesn't give us a good shot of how long the barrel is.  But based on the grip, it looks a bit small in your hands.

I know you just got this blaster in, so cutting it up isn't the first thing that you'll want to do. But consider slicing off the existing barrel and adding a shop-vac tube or something of the like to make an ESB-inspired EE-3.  This would extend the length of the blaster and also keep it "canon" influenced. You can always hold onto the ROTJ printed barrel for a future project.

That alleviates most of my headaches then :)

I did make the heavy pistol version of the carbine and It didn't feel right but it's something I may reconsider

I wish I didn't demolish my Rubies EE-3 so you could see the size comparison

Considering I JUST got this thing, I'd rather not cannibalize it and be out a huge chunk of money. I would love to build one from scratch but the biggest obstacles I have is finding a strong aluminum D-Connector to support a stock

I don't know of anyone with some wood working tools otherwise I'd make the stock out of wood so instead I'll have to use layered sintra

Yep or just sammich some sintra over the existing stock with some extensions, sand it down, repaint and cheap and "easily" you are  good to go.

That *might* work, but I'd have to sand down the greeblies first

Cut the greeblies out and reapply them on the new sintra layer.  It doesn't matter if there are ugly holes in it if it's all covered up. :)
