Hello all, time is right for me to post here. This will be my 2nd month coming into assembling this T21. The biggest handicap for me in doing any DIYs has always been location, location, location. I'm in this part of the world where things are not readily available. Trust me, we don't have screws, bolts, & nuts like on the outside. Thanks to template from @pandatrooper, greeblies & guidance from @spOOL68 (please don't hate me; but i still have lots of questions for you). First off the materials: I have the electronics from this EE-3. I believe has a decent sound for a T-21 blaster. Slings: 1944 Lee Enfield repro (need 2 of them) & Lee Enfield no.4 butt sling swivel. This is the proper way of attaching the two together. My base wood colored it Java: My base pipes: (ugly i know) coated it silver: Pre-installation, important stage here as i planned on installing the electronics in. Had to extend the cables as what came are definitely too short. Wood will need to be chiseled to properly embed the cables. Now the greeblies (awesome from Roger's btw): Just today, had to make the stock brush "playable". That's all i have for now, this is obviously a WIP. What i am most happy about so far: Thanks for watching. Appreciate any feedbacks.
Fellow Sandys, As you know, us TDs/TKs aren't on the top of the pay scale at the good ol' Empire. We have to make do with our meager paychecks. I thought I'd share my cheap and easy E-11 prop build in case there are any other troopers looking for an inexpensive E-11. I used Rubie's Star Wars Rebels Stormtrooper Costume Blaster from Amazon, a drill, some paint, and some greeblies to spice it up. The blaster isn't 100% screen accurate when it comes to size and shape, but it is pretty close. With a little TLC, you can turn a toy into a nice prop. Greeblies used: Electric shaver power cord from Amazon for $5, got the idea from whitearmor.net 5/32” x ¼” pop rivets from Home Depot for $5 Hard drive screws from work for free 3 pin inline mic connector used as the Hengstler counter connector, from eBay, 2 for $5 shipped E-11 power cylinders from Shapeways.com for $10 with coupon E-11 D-ring from Shapeways.com for $2.50 E-11 D-ring mount from Shapeways.com for $3.50 Scope reticles for free from whitearmor.net If you are interested in the build, you can check out the YouTube video here: Its not the best looking blaster in Mos Eisley, but it is a fun build and not terribly expensive.
