I was so inspired that I've spent the last couple of days building and painting the 'Greedo Killer' version. As a first attempt at a gun/blaster kit it was pretty easy to put together and I'm happy with it so far... A bit shiny in places and super close up, I've left a finger print in the paint :shock: but its given me confidence to have another go at another prop type item in the future

Really glad you shared your images as I'd have never given the idea a thought, let alone been brave enough to give it a go :D

I've ordered the ESB version to go with my Imperial Gunner costume, when I start the build I will post up a thread on it.

So... after building my resin Han Solo blaster (some years ago now) I have always had a hankering for a better one, a metal one. It’s been a long time coming but I’ve finally pulled the trigger on an accurate all metal one from War Machine paintball. They do various ones with different finishes for different budgets. I went for their best one built on a machined Mauser replica which is a new issued/painted version. I’ll have to do a little work on it, colouring it or weathering it etc to get it looking how I want. I don’t have it in hand yet but I’m well excited to get it :) Will post up some photos when it arrives.
