Greetings all. Our Ugnaught prop weapon forced labor factory has been hard at work (me and my dad). With the popularity of the E-11B and so many inspiring weapons I had been busy prototyping my DC-15S for reproduction. Unlike my E-11B's this would be 95% resin. Well I researched and went back and forth between the actual computer generated weapon and the inspiration for the components of the CG version. I wanted to make 1 more like the props seen in EP: 4-6. Meaning based on real world but modified weapons. I know the purists will hate that but come on the prequels could have used more of a real world touch.

So I give you Cinemastery Studios DC-15S!

Great to see some imaginitive craftsmanship at work!

How much does that weigh? I have a DH-17 mix of resin and original sterling parts (also fitted with a sound card and laser targetting) ...and its sure heavy to troop with Shocked

Now if you could start a line of DH-17 blasters I'm sure you'd have a lot of interested people over here. Smile

I like the small details, like the rear sight and the safety.
Cool that the M16 mag was such a good match to the CG model.

Personally, though, I would have based the gun on cast off a real MG-34 and modify details. The MG-34's pistol grip is huge.

Dang dude! Those little details really make it pop!

Clone gear is getting better all the time.
