lol...
in this economy....
and with the current tax rates...
I figured that was about "par for the course"

Laughing

and

besides...
getting it for a penny...
I guess I just was happy to get it and move on..

Very Happy

The airsoft replica arrived already today...
really pretty cool...
VERY lightweight..


Here is a photo comparison of a metal Denix replica, my custom blaster made from a metal Denix and the airsoft...






The airsoft is nearly identical in size to the un-altered Denix
...
but is slightly different:

I bought my ANH Han Solo blaster from this guy. Real good blasters. He makes others as well. Here is the link for the Han Solo/Luke Skywalker ESB blaster.

Just throwing options out there. Although I am looking forward to seeing the progress of modifying the denix/airsoft.

I am awaiting the delivery of the DoopeyDoo kit...
it was shipped...but comes from England...I think...so it might be a while...
anyway..
it should be interesting and at the end of the day...
it will come in under $100.00 and hopefully look good...

I got my ANH Han Solo Blaster from UniqueCanes (he also makes the ESB Han and Luke blaster). He did a GREAT job!!!! Well worth the money IMO.

My DoopeyDoo Han/Luke blaster arrived today...

Impressive....
most impressive...

I am really starting to like the idea of blending the Doopey Doo and the airsoft more and more....

By combining the two...
I will still have a trigger that works...
a hammer that moves
and
I think it will end up with more crisp detail...

but....
must finish my dam Gunner Helmet before I start this project..

Confused










My guess is that the flash supressor is solid....so that can be cut off the Doopey Doo and drilled out and put over the Airsoft as the barrel on the airsoft is removable to just about the right spot...

I don't need the Han half piston pieces...

all in all ...this looks like a promising project...
let's hope I am not being overly optimistic...
and..
I am usually NEVER optimistic...

agree...

so much of my Doopey Doo blaster will not be used...

I will be cutting off and using the flash supressor
and using the scope and mount...
and that is about it...

the rest will be "trash"

seems a waste
but I did poke around a bit looking for just the scope and flash suppressor pieces and came up empty...
I am sure they are out there somewhere...
I know years ago someone was selling the flash suppressor...
but I figured that might be a waste if I could only find one of the two pieces I needed and not the other...
so...
this approach seemed to be a "no brainer"...

dunno...

well....lol
could not stand it...
had to start....

sanded off the "made in China"
and filled in the markings on both sides...they were "carved in" rather than raised letters





lots more sanding to do on those....

and...
well...

flash suppressor cut off
drilled out
and dry fit on the air soft









I won't be painting the flash suppressor silver...
but instead will use the silver leaf "Rub and Buff"

This i want to see, as i know sometimes the silver or aluminum paint dont come off looking that good.

And I have been watching ebay, there was a flash suppressor and scope with resin rail for sale a week ago, but i lost the bid...i was kind of nervous it was one of us, so stepped back as there was only like 2 hours left when i saw it. Sad

guess it wasnt us

Arturo's entire Jango armor is Rub and Buff. It's really some amazing stuff!

remember when you get to the scope, the base metal is brass not aluminum
