    Sep 25, 2009, 3:17 AM - My growing blaster family...03-17-2015 #1

    Hey all

    a long time ago I used to have a thread called "New blaster family members", where I posted new additions to my -mostly blaster related- collection and recent builds.

    Since I moved into a new house in spring 2008, this thread fell off the board BUT my efforts to enlarge my collection didnīt

    Long story told short...here it is again!
    Please welcome the new members of my ever growing blaster family

    Zamīs sniper rifle:



    Zamīs blaster (MonCal -new- kit):



    Stormtrooper blaster pistol:



    ROTJ EE-3 (reworked MR blaster):



    Ponda Paba blaster (Real AR7, scope(s), mortar fin):



    BF ESB sidearms with holster:



    Hoth blaster pistol (Real AR7, SP scope, mortar fin, model kit parts):



    WIP "alternative" Hoth/ Bunker blaster pistol (Softair AR7, REAL SP scope, model kit parts):



    And my most recent pride and joy...IG88īs blaster rifle!
    Still a WIP, since I need to find and/or have some parts machined before I can proceed.



    More to come...

    Markus

    Any of the Zam would be cool
    Don't think i've seen any other replicas of it before.
    What did you use as a base or is it custom made?

    It has been done before....numerous times

    IIRC Kimncris did the first Zam rifle ever many years ago after EP2 came out. Many incarnations have been done since then, most can be found over at TDH.com (Zam costuming forum).

    The base is a deco kentucky rifle, added machined conversion parts (got the from TDH), aluminium tubing for the barrels etc.

    I am a member on TDH but don't pop over there that often.
    I thought the base might have been a Kentucky rifle.
    Thanks for sharing your great pics and info Markus

    Awesome pieces Markus!
    I didn't know they made an airsoft AR-7.
    I just got a new scope for my Ponda Baba blaster (still not the exact one, but a little closer looking). I still need to build the blaster. I haven't been able to separate my mortar fin from the mortar shell.
    No luck finding the scope ring yet.

    That IG-88 rifle is incredible!

    So good to see the lesser known blasters getting some love. The IG blaster is such a cool design...I can't wait to see it all finished! I'm planning on doing one myself with one of the kits I bought from you actually Markus.

    That IG blaster rules! The more I look at Zam's pistol, the more I like it too. For some reason it's just grown on me.

    Thanks guys!
    I have a huge preference for the more uncommon blasters

    The IG88-rifle was a long planned project, attached youīll see another more detailed shot of the blaster in its current state.
    Aluminium vented barrel jacket, resin STGW44 cast, MDF carved sholder stock, real V8 parts and some scratchbuilt items such as the scope and the detailing for the cocking slot.

    I plan to make it "semi-idealised"...with all the weathering but no major damages as seen on the real deal. In addition to that it features a real SP scope and mount-ring.



    Chris:
    MGOOB had the same problem with his mortar fin.
    In the ende he had to cut it off and drill it out Is yours welded to the mortar bomb?

    Well, I think it's one helluva collection. I too think the IG-88 is going really well.

    *edit: I also see you re-scoped your MR EE-3...nice.

    Thanks again gentlemen, your feedbacks are highly appreciated

    Single Seat:
    Not only did I swap the scope, but I also did a few other mods to the MR EE-3, such as...
    Reworking the stock by adding correct greeblies, replacing the screws on the back etc., adding correct Phantom model kit parts to the gun body and giving the whole thing a full repaint.

    Peter P./ Stormy:
    PMīs ya back. the STGW44 cast was made by myself, based on a mold off a real/ SHOEI hybrid. I can provide a full 44 kit (minus stock and mag), but no other parts.

    Eric:
    You know me bro, I canīt have enough of these
    Below youīll find some pics of my stuff (minus the Vader helmet collection) in its current state.

    The empty spots on the blaster wall are either for future blasters or current WIP. The large empty space in the middle of the panels is for my bowcaster, which will be replaced in the -hopefully near- future.



    The BFG rack still shows my MG15 uncoverted, even if I have most of the parts to do so. But Iīm still missing the "arm" for the enfield scope mount to attach to



    My "main wall" features two large glass cabinets with themed display levels (which are constantly re-arragnged). The SEVV display is still a WIP, so is the Vader and -still- the two Yodas on the left side.
