I’ve got my 3D printer dialed in, but still completely uneducated when it comes to modeling.

Thanks again for the link on the buckle, I ordered one last night!

You're making great progress! That blaster is a great start. The shape is really nice so far.

This is looking great!

My dad just asked me to make him this costume for Celebration Chicago, so I will be taking lots of notes here.

Since the Blaster can be a challenge to find, I attended a Garrison shop night with a section of 2x8 lumber in hand and a few reference photos blown up to a size that looked pretty accurate to my size. Our host is quite the craftsman! With his help and a few others, we closed up for the evening with this as our product so far. Very far from finished product, but amazing for a few hours of hanging out in the shop!


Got my blaster from SithPlanet. Totally disappointed with the final result. Cheap paint job, some missing parts. Will have to do work to get it right. Kit looks good, finished product not so much. Will post some photos next week.

Sorry to hear it didn't turn out as well as you would have liked. I haven't posted much in the last few weeks as I didn't think I had accomplished much. I have acquired the base for the gauntlets, much as you have with the toilet brush holders. I'm hoping to work on paper templates like yours this weekend.

Last night at one of our regular Garrison shop nights, we attached the 2 halves of the blaster and did a lot of sanding. Weather permitting I'm hoping to spray it with primer in the next few days. It can use a little more work on the smaller holes with the files, but once completed, I doubt it will come out of the holster very often.

Looks better in photos than It looks in my hands. Poorly assembled. Cheap paint job, and they almost sanded the model before they painted it. Will have to do a lot of work. This blaster don't worth the money I paid. He glued a brass valve at the other side of the trigger, just because he did not have more wheel parts. He did not even mention that to me in the first place.





take a look at the album and see for your self the rest of the flaws.

PD: The seller agreed to refund me a part given he did not notice the flaws before ship it.

Just about ready for DragonCon! After that, I’ll refine the color on the belt & redo the gauntlets and work more on the heatshaping of the design so it can be properly subset into the base.
