    3 Weeks Ago  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.

    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.
