    Apr 23, 2018, 5:48 PM - Bradberry00's Prop Builds: Blasters, Lightsabers, and Other Nonsense #1

    Over the past year and a half I have learned a lot from you all. I humbly started with a couple Denix builds, quickly realizing that my OCD and perfectionism would not allow me to settle. With the knowledge I have gained (and the jealousy I have developed from looking at all of your excellent props) on the RPF, I have begun to gather parts to build props as screen accurate as my pocketbook allows. I wanted to start this thread as a way to force myself to document these builds and, hopefully, share anything I discover through the process with you.

    Along with this thread I have started an Instagram account @1to1starwars that I may be updating more frequently than this thread. Feel free to follow me there.

    LINKS TO SPECIFIC PROPS:

    - Nearly finished Greedo Killer DL-44
    - Repainted Anovos Shoretrooper Helmet
    - TFA DL-44 & NN-14

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    I want to start the thread by showing what a years worth of searching, hunting, and begging has brought me...Nearly everything to make a 100% accurate 'Greedo Killer'. MGC, real Compac Super 2 1/2x20, real M9 flash hider, Weaver scope rings, @Field Marshall dovetail and a scratch build scope mount...eagerly awaiting a @SolosHold heat sink.










    In addition to this I have been lucky enough to find two additional MGC's one is 90% built up as a ROTJ DL-44 (I will share more images of that soon) and the other will likely be a Hoth variant. I am also slowly gathering parts for a live fire ANH Hero DL-44....and a few more goodies that I will expose at a later date.

    Again, thank you for generously sharing both your knowledge and sometimes your extra parts with me as I embark on this endless journey.


    To be continued...

    Does any one have an higher resolution version of these images or a similar image showing the 'Greedo Killer' from the front? I want to determine how far the barrel was cut off, if at all, when the M9 flash hider was installed.

    Not great photos (I will do a proper photo shoot soon), but I pretty much got my Greedo Killer together yesterday. Overall happy with it, although I do need to make a few adjustments....Thanks @SolosHold the heat sink looks great!

    Some "Other Nonsense" — Anovos Shoretrooper that I repainted the correct, known screen accurate, color and re-weathered. Next to the Sandtrooper, the Shoretrooper has to be one of my favorite bits of costume design in the Star Wars world (I really like the Deathtroopers and new Rogue One Stormtroopers too...hell Rogue One just nailed the costume design). The design is so unmistakingly Star Wars, but also fresh and unique. This helmet marks the beginning of a full armor build...

    I know the TFA DL-44 isn't necessarily a favorite around these parts...but I think it is a nice companion for the Nerfworx Lab NN-14....

    I have been sitting on this Airsoft and DEC TFA kit for some time now so I spent the last couple days throwing it together. Turned out pretty nice and I quite like the new approach while still paying homage to the Hero blaster...

    Amazing work @Bradberry00! I actually like Rey's blaster quite a bit, but that may be due to me being one of the few who doesn't hate TLJ.

    I fully agree about the NN-14....I was referring to the TLJ DL-44 as not being universally loved. Many people think it is a poor rendition of the ANH Hero blaster. I honestly think of it of a new version/variant of the blaster and it makes since that it isn't the same as the Hero. The pair really looks good together!
