Hi guys not been around on the forums as much as I should but for the past month and a bit ive been having a go at scratch building a T21.

After building my pack from all sorts of found items a while ago I thought it was about time I took another look round my shed at work and cupboards around the house to see what I could come up to build one of these BFG's

I used Pandatroopers templates and took inspiration from others builds here on the Mepd as well as some great pics from Anthony Bailey (Blaster 8266) and a build thread one of my Facebook friends Danny from Peru had done.

I thank each and every one of you for your help one way or the other and I hope the end result here gets your approval :thumbsup:

My intention with the build was to spend as little as possible and with the exception of the spray paint (5 cans) and the Lee Enfield straps everything else you see below would have all ended up in a skip (bin).

So here you go guys here is my T21, let me know what you think good or bad.

I started with these:

Used an old cup for the barrel reducer:

Very nice indeed Daz, some serious skills and attention have obviously gone into this build. Nice to see the added blue wire that so many miss.

Top job.
