    A New rubber E-11 is HERE! "Praetorian Blasters"

    Sorry for the delays. Hopefully everyone is happy with their blasters. There are still a few that are en route but I'm wrapping up this coming weekend.

    You can use pretty much anything on these as far as paint goes. Krylon paints will work fine as well as Testers model paints. We generally use flexible bumper coaters but it's not necessary for detail work.

    I still have two spots for the DLT-19 first run with weathering included. These will ship next Saturday. Let me know.

    These will take 1 week to turn around and ship. I will be shipping on Saturdays so please allow me enough time to get your order built and shipped if you have an upcoming event. These are a lot more work than the old version I used to make back in the day. I'm probably going to throw in the "weathering" for free for the first 5 blasters.

    PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Ok. So i've done some time and materials estimating and here's what I've come up with. DOMESTIC: Firm Rubber DLT-19 (black): $485 shipped in the continental US Charging handle will be shipped inside of the box but not assembled on the blaster Firm Rubber DLT-19 (weathered): $510 shipped in the continental US Charging handle will be shipped inside of the box but not assembled on the blaster INTERNATIONAL: As usual, I'm leery of shipping out of the continental US. I have done it on the E-11s but it's always sketchy. IF you are dead set on getting one of these blasters, I will ship to a US address and from there they can ship to you but I'm going to try NOT to ship outside of the continental US. The reason is that IF this gets stopped by customs it's just too expensive of an item to lose as well as replace / refund for the loss. We have had customers purchase and have them shipped to a friend / fellow 501st member and have them forwarded to them from there. That has worked well but please be advised, you will do this at your own risk. If a "loss" happens as a result, I will do my best to discount a replacement for you but no guarantees.

    Yes. I'll be offering weathering for sure. Pricing to come shortly. Trying to figure that out as we speak.

    PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Sorry for the quality-lacking photos. I was in a hurry. I'll shoot some new photos tomorrow. A few bits about this new set of molds and castings. Obviously, we are using the same rubber as we have for years. The muzzle cone is molded separately to provide a deeper, more realistic look. The bipod is molded separately, The receiver cover has been molded separately and the charging handle is molded separately. The charging handle is cast with a metal threaded insert. The gun is molded with a threaded post (10-32). This may be reversed in the future but I have to see if this will work or not. Normally, these will be painted black but this particular blaster has been painted a gun metal grey metallic to show better in photos.

    PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Hey guys. I'm sorry for the delay. Work, play, family, moving, etc. has all been part of why we haven't been active on this project. We actually finished the molds this time last year but you know how it goes. Nathan and I discussed things briefly and I'm probably going to go this alone until work and things settle. I will keep you guys updated. I am currently working on the first casting right now. As far as availability, I'm probably going to just make an initial push on these and then will slow it down to about 4 to 6 of them per month. They are a ton of work and I'm already stretched thin. Pictures to follow shortly.
  10. I'm looking for an approvable DLT-19 blaster for my MEPD trooper.  I would really appreciate some more information.  I've tried to assemble one myself but I failed.

    Hah. I'm excited to see this one. This big guy is like giving birth..... very painful. The way we are molding this one is going to look so good. It's a lot of parts to cast to make one blaster but in the end, it will look far better than anything we've ever made in the past. More accurate, less of a seam, more detail, more love, etc.

    PRAETORIAN BLASTERS - DLT-19

    Hey Guys. Just an update. We're nearing completion on this new DLT-19 project. We've done a few things that we think will make you all proud. We've molded the receiver cover separately so you will get some detail and depth where is should be on the receiver. We've separated the barrel tip for venting to get rid of the loss of detail at the butt stock. The charging handle will be removable and will have a threaded steel insert in the blaster body. This will give you a metal anchor for the charging handle that won't strip out. Bipod comes glued in place and is not functional. The barrel tip detail is molded separately to give a deeper, more realistic business end to the blaster. These will come painted black as a standard. The fins will come wire wrapped as a standard option. We will offer weathering and butt stock woodgrain (although not canon). Just FYI... A bakelite stock that is painted black is canon for the film.
