I've been looking all over the place for this site I had at one point that had directions for a PVC BFG and I can't find it. Does anyone know of a good one anywhere or have their own plans that I could get? I have the need to upgrade my firepower Smile

Ah nuts, and here I was going to try to come up with something witty, but I fell short... tragic.

Which BFG aare you looking for?

Cushman makes several BFGs and they are nice and light, and he is getting some good detail out of them now.





I have one of the newly re-done DC-15 longs and I love it.

I thought I'd compensate for people never noticing the RFTs with a BFG Smile

And those are pretty awesome, Bill. I still remember there being some sort of DYI BFG site out there tho. I wish I could remember it...

Was this the site you were thinking of?

http://www.imperial-fleet.com/BBC/

Perhaps this one would be of help?

I'd like to figure out how to make a slightly scaled down version of this, though it would be a pain to carry around a crowded Con.



I figure some of it could be done with ABS and PVC pipes, but it's got a lot of detailing in it. I'm not sure how I'd do the fins.

I'd just need to make some gaiters, and a holster, I've already got OD canvas for that, and get some khaki pants, and with my Endor Trooper belt and bandoleer, I'd have this costume.
