from Star Wars, DL-44, off course.
I needed a break from doing the cinema, so i decided to do something completly different - good old metal-work.
First i had some plans printed in 1/1:
The next needed thing was a Mauser, prefered a metal-replica from Denix:
(Barrel shortened, frontsight was sawed off)
Disassemling and modifying it, drilling and tapping the magazine for the scope-mount screw.
Then using the lathe to modify a knurled fastener, and to produce a 1/8" thick plastic-spacer with the same diameter:
Next job was turning a flash hider - custom, not any one from the show, just for the fun and the practice:
Here it is:
Yesterday the next original parts arrived. Now i have to decide if i go for all-metall and turning some on the lathe - or make some molds and cast them from resin:
Some more made parts:
For the next blaster (they used 6 different versions in the 3 movies - still some work to do):
I´m still hunting for the right scopes and some other parts.
