The Delmonte Endor bunker charge

Hi folks,

So, I’m going to start this thread because we managed to grab a Kango from a friend on Facebook who had two. Ours is the white version, fine by me it gets painted anyway.

Disassembling this was so much work, that I recorded it. redbutton and I managed to make it work. We have very limited shop space so we’re amongst a bunch of old stuff and we have workstations in different places in the house, add that to limited tools and this was quite the roller coaster!

If you watch that all the way through, you’re awesome. Currently nursing my neck and my thumb. There was SO MUCH GREASE!!

Btw it worked. Before this I plugged it into an outlet and sure enough… I was able to pull the trigger and it responded with a WAKKAWAKKAWAKKA
Thank you so much for the drill!!! I marvel at whoever designed all the parts to this thing.
Dude!! Redbutton makes a cameo!!!

Tom I love the father son team work! This is great!!!

Thank you sir!!! It was an on the spot buy, and I’m in the middle of remodeling some of the basement so **** is everywhere

We’re sure none of the innards were left in there guys? Right now just the outer wire wrap part of the motor is in there, I was going to remove it when I clean the thing… and when my thumb heals a little more :D
Just for the sake of the project, here are some great reference photos of the prop sold via PropStore

I know multiple people have already made their own and even has a replica kit! our community is amazing. I at least have my own molds of the real boot studs
I might - keep an eye on your inbox, more importantly to me I think I want to make sure I map out the internals first. The rotary switch, the LEDs and the metal plate up top...
From gus and lonepigeon there looks to be aluminum plate beneath the top, not sure if theres an aluminum hollow box or the electronics are just loose in there


Oh, and here's the "other" one we commonly see

Also, does anyone know what we're looking at here? Next to the fader knob theres like... a wire? I can't even 3D picture this

I washed this with Dawn this afternoon and the rest of the inside slipped out.

I really want to use the plastic frame to support the electronics area - has anyone seen inside underneath? (Beyond the “foot”) I’m wondering if they used a plastruct oil tank with foil tape on the end for the guts
three things I've noticed.
1) it's aluminum tape. You can even see their FINGERNAILS smoothing the tape down

2) They traced the cavities onto the tape with a scribe. I'm assuming to take the innards out and do something to them before putting them back in

3) Something gray with a seam line was used to cap off the bottom of the motor housing with screws. What is this? I can't find a plastruct disc that has a line across it?!

Got it. I thought you were talking about the silver disc on the left.
That… we have been told that’s old double stick tape lol and the current theory is that’s part of the cone used for the skirt, a smaller section higher up maybe
We made the start of the skirt!

Used a dremel wood cutting disc to slice around the groove from the inside. Files and a belt sander to finish them. Thinking about length of the housing, looks to be almost where it sits before you cut?

ALSO, I took the stainless bottom from a water bottle... it was a few points of a mm wider than the housing so I sliced it and glued it together to reduce the diameter. Tried to solder it but it just wouldnt stick...


A little cleaner look than the foil tape :D
