    Finally...the last jig is done, the last template made, all the tools are
    ready for a production run... and the original is all back togeather for
    some quick pictures.

    I'd like to introduce you all to a friend of my Dads and I, this is Bob.

    He's very friendly...

    Say hi to the nice RPF people Bob...

    Hmmm, he's being shy I guess...

    Now you all know why the Terra Nova Pistol Tutorial has taken me so long
    to finish up :rolleyes
    Honestly, you wouldn't believe the ammount of hours thats in Bob. He has
    no nails or screws in him, he's all fitted and dowel rod. Each piece is hand
    made, no casts, no molds, no vac-forming, and each one will be done the
    same way.


    In roughly 30 days my "New Member" status will allow me to put Bob's
    clones in the Junkyard, so please don't ask me now as I really enjoy being
    in this community and don't want Art mad at me. These will NOT be "pay
    and we make", we are starting them this weekend with a run of 25. We
    have a goal of a ship date 1 week before Christmas.


    Car sold separately, battery included :lol

    Very cool, how much does it weigh? Can the fitted joints hold any poses?

    You know...we never weighed him. I'll put him on a scale tomarow and find out.
    As for poses, he stands on his own, the head, arms, for-arms, wrists are completely moveable. The legs can't, so he can't sit. We could make it so he could, the very first prototype we made did, but it's a lot more in hours to make that way.

    Wood appears to work exceptionally well with the design.
    Fantastic work!

    I always contemplated doing a build myself - could only hope it would turn out half as good as your result. Well done.

    That's insane! Post some details on how you built it in wood. I'd think you'd need a cnc router for that.

    I have one of Korbanths but this looks good in wood. Need an accurate BD Blaster to go with that?

    Story time! Years and years ago, we picked up a few dozen each of the E-11's, Rebel blasters and Battle Droid blasters. Along the way some were sold, some lost, but we still have quite a few of them left. The idea was to make a completely wood one to match the BD here but there was always another project or special order to fill so we just didn't get around to it.
    I should probably get these done to go with the 25 we're building right now...

    Did these ever make it to the junkyard? I probably couldn't afford it with shipping anyway, but couldn't find a jy thread.
