Hi, I‘m working on a Star Wars costume at the moment (see my other threads) and found a nice way for weathering Aluminum parts. Just put them in the dishwasher. Something you should never do with aluminum kitchen stuff.
Here my DL44 flash hider before, new and shiny:
And after one round for...
I've sourced 100% screen accurate ribbon for your Yavin Medals. Years ago I discovered the British Officer Wool Ties, but recently I came across this same style of ribbon, which is more likely the source of the Medal Ribbons given that they also used this material for Luke's ANH Pancho Trim and...
Last item in the great scope purge of 2022!
For sale is a beautiful vintage Hensoldt Wetzlar Dialyt Ziel 2 3/4 x scope in excellent condition.
The optics are super clear, but the iphone pictures are showing up occluded for some reason.
It has the correct bell shape and length for an ANH hero...
Awhile back a drew up a concept for a Han lightsaber using the DL-44 as inspiration. I came across it while looking through my sketchbook and decided it was time to make it a reality. Started modeling and updating the design as I went. The I started printing all the parts. I made it modular...
Here is my mostly completed 1/9 scale Han + Tauntaun resin kit. I picked this up awhile back on Etsy from StannArts. Per his description this is actually an original sculpt and not a 3d print. The resin cast was terrific and I only had to putty a few areas smooth before gluing all the pieces and...
Evening all. I thought I'd have a go at ANH Han for a local con. With my post-pandemic budget being a little on the low side this is the cheapest I can make it whilst still looking vaguely acceptable.
Luckily I've already got the holster and a Denix/DEC DL-44 so that's the bulk of the cost of...
Hi. I am letting go of my MR Han Solo ANH Elite Edition Blaster. Everything is included. This was opened twice. The first time being when it was first received, and for the second time, was to take pictures for this thread. This item has been sitting in storage and in my basement for years...
Hi all! I have been working on a Han Solo shirt and have found myself at a bit on an impasse. While I know the style is a henley, in some images it looks to be linen while in others it looks to be a bit of a thick cotton. I tried scouring through the forum topics, but it was starting to get...

I'm selling a Greedo Killer based on an MGC mauser and assembled by me as screen-accurately as possible,
vintage MGC mauser,
vintage Weaver K1/1,5 scope which is quite close to the real deal and you can actually see through it
vintage weaver scope rings
vintage WWII LFC M9 flash hider
After tweaking and tinkering with this build for the past year, I decided it's time to finally post some progress pictures of this thing! I picked up this beautiful steel Mauser kit from Field Marshall almost a year ago (right after the pandemic started) and I've really enjoyed savoring the...
Hi all! I was asked to make the buckles and hardware for Han Solo's holster rig. Gonna make them all out of copper, no machining all by hand ( i have no machine tools)
What I need is a pattern set for all the hardware if anyone has such a thing. I would greatly appreciate any and all help!!
I don't know if this one fits the definition of a prop replica but here it is.
It's the Han Solo Lego DL-44 blaster full scale that I built for my son.
Nothing fancy here. Just a fun build. :)
Years back I bought a solid resin Droid Caller. After reading the forums I realized the Han version had a few differences, so I set out to make one close as possible, that I can eventually put a buzzer in. First step was to drill out the center, the light bulb socket, screw holes, and the...
UPDATE: (Nov. 11th, 2021 - 3D print & painting v1.0 complete, pg 4):
<I decided to add a current progress pic to the original post, partly so you don't have to scroll down if you don't want to, and partly because my first progress pic looks pretty bad in comparison. I know I was just starting...
This is my scratch built (Denix & 3D printed) HOTH blaster from The Empire Strikes Back..
I’ve been studying these dl-44 blasters under a microscope for a while now and every time I think I have it figured out a new detail emerges. But this is where I am at today. When I started on this Hoth...
Anyone have a spare bull barrel compatible with a Field Marshall Han Solo ANH flash hider? Just thought I'd see before I order one directly.
Used is fine, will even consider flawed stuff for a deal, but steel is preferred in any case.

What's up everyone!? So recently I bought an umarex mauser c96. and I'm wanting to first, make it look more like a real mauser, then convert it to a bespin Han solo dl-44.
Here is what I'm starting with:
Here is the first thing I've tackled:
I needed to remove that fake molded in selector...
Hey gang! Long time, no speak on the actual forum here, although I've been posting on the official Facebook page.
It gives me great pleasure to announce that I, along with many of the most talented people I know, have embarked on the sort of project that every kid who grew up watching Star Wars...
I purchased the mold of Han Solo frozen in carbonite as a Christmas present for the hubs years ago. I decided that since we are renovating our basement, I would start getting to work on it! A nice gentleman I work with who has helped with some home repairs for us as well mounted Han to some...
I am going to make the cards to be better than the ones you can buy from Disney or from Etsy/eBay because they have their disadvantages. The ones from Disney are too flimsy to be played with for a long time, and the others are semi-transparent. Thanks for the help in advance.
