That 4x20 scope, is that a "Model 7" scope from the Evazan blaster/Bowcaster? Or is it the ASI Boba Fett scope?

I just received an actual Model 7 scope today and it looks nearly identical to yours (except for some small differences in the adjustment knob assembly)

Interesting. The Nikko Stirling 4x20 is apparently very close to both scopes. The only difference seems to be the adjustment knob assembly.

Is there a screw in the eye piece end of the scope? It looks like there might be but its hard to tell.

OK, it has been some time since the last update, i´ve been to stressed to get much done on my own blasters. But finally i made some little progress. Cool


I milled the scopemounts


nice and rough, nothing to shiny - it´s Star Wars. Laughing



And don´t ask how big the chunk of alu was before milling Shocked - as i had no proper sized alu blocks, i needed to take a "slighly" oversized one to carve them out. Surprised


Some black was added and some greeblies were glued



Still needs additional weathering, up to now i only did the "mechanical" weathering with hammer and sandpaper. More colors and some dust/pigment work still need to be applied.


The real brass grip




And the muzzle




And again, some size-comparisions (real sterling with real parts, MGC with real Hensoldt, wood grips, ........)




Thanks for looking. Very Happy
