No prob! It is pretty sweet. The only thing that irks me is that he glued the clip into it--otherwise you could've still shot airsoft bbs from it. Plus, I love the fact that with my other airsoft mod I can pop out the clip and claim it's the power pack. Wink

Hey,
I'm not a full member but i've build some props.
First my DL-44 Blaster:



Its made out of wood, papermachée and an bit PVC. Would it be ok ?
And the holster for the blaster:



Then my droidcallers:

This one is complete made out of wood, exept the screw and the D-ring

This is made like the one in an introduction fron the GBY

(Sorry for my english, I'm from Germany and 14 years old)

Hope you like them.

Hats off to yah M8!!
Takes allot of work to do what you did, very cool indeed! Somehting about making your own blaster puts you into a very small group of Hans... even if its not 100% accurate, its says something about the person.


Bob

Anyone got a source for a resin ANH style DL 44 emitter nozzle with the holes? I could get the one I found on ebay and try drilling it but I am afraid I would end up destroying it in the process or not having them be nice and straight.

Here is my DL-44 that I made over the weekend. It is made out of a target star wars game I'm not sure which one but it works and the blaster sounds that it make is cool and I got it at a garage sale for five dollars. So I decided why not give it a try and see how I do. So what do you guys think? This is for a Bespin Luke costume that I'm going for.









I know that this isn't accurate but will it pass?

How do you attach the droid caller and belt tools? Just using the small bags and clips or in addition screws or glue?

I used 3M double-sided automotive emblem adhesive tape on my droid caller. It's available at any automotive parts store (AutoZone, NAPA, Advance Auto Parts, etc.). Just cut off a strip to fit the inside of the droid caller clip. Press it onto the clip. Squeeze the clip shut. Open the clip just wide enough to slide the droid caller in. Move droid caller to desired position. Squeeze the clip around the droid caller.

I have not used it yet but I imagine the tape would work in holding the tools inside their respective pouches too. EXTREMELY sticky stuff!

I Have used a bit of velcro here and there hidden to help hold things in place. You can just see the white Velcro on the inside of the far part of my clamp.

I have used rubber bands to act as a stopper so things dont slide out as well. There are a ton of ways... also depends on your tools and belt.

So I'm looking at the Mauser conversion kits here:
http://www.blast-tech.com/products_packagedKits.asp

But I need some expert help in translating: Is the Type 1 kit AHH Han and the Type 2 Kit ESB Han, or am I high?

That is correct! Type 1 is ANH and type 2 is ESB.
