so i had a bunch of parts laying around from another hobby and figured might as well put them to good use. given that jawas make use of what ever they can find to make weapons, i figure the same applies for me /us. given that i did not have a lee enfield to cannibalize this is not 100% accurate in that respect but i used mosin nagant and arisaka parts and brass bits i found in my garage.
so far what i have done is rough up and buff the bluing off the parts to get a tatooine desert effect. i could have made things brand new looking but figured given the environment it more than likely be cobbled together, hence the emphasis on crude construction. but i have not made the barrel and other parts just yet, i am tempted to make them out of brass.
to give a sense of scale my kitten ralf was in the frame.
