just finished my boba fett blaster using some hasbro parts....I made a longer stock and handle from wood, extended scope, and made a longer barrel...(basically removed/replaced everything but scope and flare gun center--still makes blaster sounds) measurements ended up being 5 3/4 (top to bottom) and 32 inches long ......finished w/grey primer, flat black, then dusted it with flat dark brown, then added scratches, rust ..etc...

That looks amazing!

I just bought one of the hasbro blasters from tesco - was just going to repaint it but now I'm thinking I need to do this!

have you got any more wip shots you want to share?

Most impressive! I've thought about doing this myself but then I realized what kind of work I had to put into it and thought, "maybe next time.":lol

That's exactly what I did on my mostly scratch built blaster, way back in the day when no one even knew for certain what the real gun was based from.

Awesome!!!!! I posted on TDH a loooooong time ago to see if anyone would make a resin conversion kit or something, but no one ever did. So I decided to hold out untill someone did. It's just sitting on the shelf now. :lol
