UPDATE ON MY PROJECTS: PONDA BOBA BLASTER - VIBRO AXE - ROTJ ENDOR A280 - DLT20A IG88 RIFLE

Ponda Boba Blaster - I received my grip from Markus (Odiwan72) and cut it and tapped into it to attach a 1/4 all thread. I then twisted the handle into the Charter Arms AR-7. Modified my Weaver 29s scope and found a bell similar to the screen used. Not 100% but still keeping my eyes peeled for the actual bell scope (If anyone has any info on the make of the scope I would appreciate it) I then cut a piece of flat stock metal for the scope mount and found a 3/4" scope ring. I used the actual barrel from the Charter Arms, filled the long rifle emblem with JB Weld, sanded and painted aluminum chrome finish. I ended up finding another real Mortar Fin and weathered it. It's getting there.

Vibro Axe - I received my aluminum Vibro Axe blade from Ryan so I can start upgrading the Vibro I received from Kurtyboy a few months ago to an all metal option. Absolutely amazing quality Ryan. Big thumbs up! I have most of the work completed. I just need to drill and tap the holes for the final item to attach.

Endor A280 - I am using a Denix M16 as the base for this project. I cut off the plastic barrel shroud from the original Denix to expose the metal barrel underneath. Sleaved over the larger barrel and attached it with screws. I then cut a smaller barrel out of metal and notched it to fit. Tapped into the main barrel and the receiver. I had a local machinist make me the scope shroud, jackel, extra mag, pump grip, sight and rear stock pieces. I then lathed a the barrel extension piece. I am not fond of the way the screen accurate prop was put together so I modified with JB Weld to give the appearance of what a real gun would look like. (See pictures and let me know what you think) I still need to add a few greeblies (Waiting for my all metal parts to arrive) and prep for the final paint and weathering.

DLT20A - I really want to make an all metal version of this blaster and have been giving some thought as to how to make it happen. I am using a Denix STG for the base. I am just in the testing phase to see how to best do this. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I will keep you posted.

Your Ponda Baba blaster has me obsessed, I was fine until I saw yours... ;). Nice work, can’t wait to see your Hoth rifle!
