    A collector of all things Mara Jade asked me to build him Mara jade's
    hold out derringer and the library case she hides it in. Here are the results.

    Fits in the palm of my hand:

    Size comparison, now the blaster seems HUGE :

    re: WoodChuck Mara Jade Derringer & case.

    That's me! That's me!

    I have been wanting a prop replica of this for so long... 10 years now. When I saw WoodChuck make the other MJ Blaster a couple months ago, along with his other fantastic work, I knew he would be the guy to make this happen.

    For those not familiar with Mara's holdout, here is the basis for the design...

    I can't wait to get this in my collection. Thanks again to WoodChuck for his excellent, skillful, and quick work on this project.

    Yes, but WoodChuck did way too great of a job for me to just slap some paint on. I am not taking any chances with this so this is being sent directly to Johnson Arms for paint and detail work.

    Ha!

    I need to have 20 cases made. After all, it is suppose to be a hidden compartment, so how can I hide it if I don't have other cases to conceal it? :p

    As mentioned, I had this sent directly to Johnson Arms. He and I have been discussing the plan of attack for this item to come up with a realistic (verses comic) coloring of the blaster and case. JA has been keeping updated quite often with WIP photos.

    I do not have this in hand yet but I should by next week but I could not wait any longer to show it off.

    Both Woodchuck and Johnson Arms are located in Florida. Their combined talents really made this comicbook prop replica jump off the page and into real life.

    If anyone is thinking of doing something like this, I would highly recommend this team of artists.

    I got this in hand a few days ago but just now getting around to posting pictures. My daughter Mara Jade and I love it. Thanks again to WoodChuck and Johnson Arms for making this happen. Two artists at the top of their game.

    You're very welcome! It was a fun project and I'm just glad that you both are pleased. It's not easy trying to paint something that you know has been 10+ years in the planning :)



    Excellent job on the kit, WC! It was a pleasure to work and I'm glad it came out the way MJF wanted. That's always a great thing, hehe.

    Let me know if you ever have someone needing one of your kits finished, I'd be honored to get the opportunity :)
