The revell model engine you can still find on ebay... not too hard to find... just have to buy the whole kit. To be honest though... there are more parts from that model kit used in Star Wars than any other kit I can think of. For Star Wars costumers who make props... that kit is a must own TBH.

Aye, in the US they are relatively cheap, or at least not so much expensive.

Thank you so much! That definitely helps a lot! I think I got the Revell v8 part from another tutorial that was talking about that piston part. I saw a resin one on ebay that was going for 4 dollars, so I might get that and paint it. Since I dont have too much money to work with I am using a denix replica of the broomhandle mauser for the project. You have been an big help to me on this project, thank you so much!

Be my guest.

When you go and buy a resin copy, make sure you get the correct ESB version. In ESB they used the version i showed above, for ROTJ they just machined their own piston halves.

Like this ones



They are a little bit smaller, having less grooves around them, and are missing the area/rim around the hole - just flat with a tiny hole.

And don´t forget to file small cutouts right and left where they were glued together, in these cutouts put some poprivets in.
