Boba Fett EE3 Blaster by strangelysaucy Boba Fett EE3 Blaster by strangelysaucy
My build of Boba Fett's iconic blaster from Return Of The Jedi.

The EE3

I used a Hasbro toy as the base filling all the screwholes, added a full size handgrip, a real working rifle scope and a custom built shoulder stock. Custom paint with rust pigments to garnish mmmmm...

Looks pretty sweet.
What grip did you use? I've been meaning to refit my hasbro blaster so it fits my giant-ass hands, and if I can avoid a bunch of faffing about getting tips, so be it.

Wow, that's really nicely done !

If you don't mind me asking, how did you go about making it? as in, the actual construction ? I doubt the handgrip and scope just happened to be a perfect fit by coincidence, and I wouldn't imagine things like glue would be used for this kind of thing.

Thanks - that was an interesting read, and the other posts. I expected it to be harder work - looks like the kind of stuff I'd be able to do no problem, providing I had the materials... that inspires me to have a go at ... well, not sure... making *something* haha :)
Given me some cool ideas for model-making anyway. Most of my art is 2D - drawing and painting - though I do enjoy making models of things, yet due to lack of stuff and know-how, they usually end up being paper maché/salt dough sculptures.

If it's any inspiration, the best and only way to learn is to just do 'stuff' My first builds were 'ok' not that smooth but they are getting better and better with each one. I'm getting to the point now where I want to go back and rebuild my earlier things with my new and improved bodging skills :D

I'm in the middle of a second EE3 now and it's looking much better already! so..go! make something!

Cool :)

I sure will try something at some point... I might wait until I have a little money to spare though, the life of a skint student can be quite hard at times money-wise...

How did you achieve the weathered look? I guess for the silver around the worn edges, it could have been sprayed silver first, then gunmetal on top and carefully sanded/rubbed down so the silver shows through, but I'm not sure how you got the rusty look.

I spot painted the silver on points I thought would get scuffed and then dry brushed the rust on then finally washed over it with some pigment dust and water, that way it settles in the little nooks and crannies like real rust.
