Resin ANH Han Solo blaster

Postby Robstyley » Thu Feb 26, 2015 6:04 pm

I only got interested in props last year so I'm quite new to it. There's loads of things I'd like to make or own and I've got a few projects on the go, SW and non SW. I'm not really going for super accuracy at the moment, just having a go at making a few things and learning. The first thing I made was this ANH Han Solo blaster from a resin kit. I'd like to have an accurate metal one eventually but I'm happy with this for now. Really enjoyed doing it and it didn't cost a fortune.

Mate that is great work, you nailed the paintwork - nicely weathered, really looks the business.
Such an iconic piece of SW and all the better because you made it yourself.
Can't wait to see more of you work/collection

Thanks Iain. I'm not sure it's worthy of a stand!? :lol: To be honest I'm not precious with it, it just sits on the DVD's and I play around with it when I'm watching films. If and when I get round to doing or buying a metal one I'll get back to you, will prob need a stand for that 8)

Really lovely paint job, despite you wanting a metal one, it certainly looks the part already!

Edit: I changed the title of this thread because I think it's better to have a different thread for each item/project than one thread for all. Unless it's a showcase of all of someones work or prop collection (like Grinchys) I think it makes more sense. You will then be able to search for a particular prop you're interested in or discuss a certain prop in that thread because it will have the prop name in the thread title. Just an idea. What do people think?

That looks brilliant mate 8)

Was this a full resin kit, or one of the kits to add to a rubies blaster?

Looks brill, and the paint/ weathering is spot on

Thanks Mike. It's a full resin kit from someone called Doopydoos, he sells them on ebay. When it arrives it's in several parts and looks like this:

It's a pretty good kit, the sharpness and detail is quite good, not that I'm an expert! It needs quite a lot of finishing with a knife and filling and sanding etc. I mostly sprayed it with car spraypaint except the handle and weathering which I did with a brush.
