Right! I'm very sorry to keep you all waiting, I've been rather busy lately, and I've simply forgotten to update this thread... (uh oh...) If you want to stay %100 up-to-date with my progress, you're best off following my Docking Bay 94 V2 Sergeant Build on the MEPD. Here we go then! Firstly, I little while I received this little beauty from Blue Snaggletooth, thanks mate! I'm very happy with it! I'm hoping to secure 40213 as my legion ID, fingers crossed and hope no one nicks it! Now of course, I need to exterminate the other half of the resin Hengstler, couldn't think of a way to do it, Dremel probably wouldn't be cut out for it,
so I decided to go with a little saw I got in my kit with knives. It worked, but it wasn't pleasant... I can say, my finger didn't enjoy the pressure applied on it! And victory! And all glued together now, looking good I think! Now the bolt of the blaster, I decided ABS would be a good idea, alas it was indeed. A bit of scrap from trimming my lid! Then I plonked it in boiling water, left it for 2 minutes, and then bent it on the drum stick I used to create the spring. Not too bad I reckon, not entirely satisfactory to what I'd prefer, but not bad! I cut it too short so had to glue it to another
bit of abs, I used the glue I used for scale modelling, and god that bonds the ABS good! I went with some milliput over it afterwards, to exterminate
the seem. Need to sand it still. Aye, it's a bit wonky, but you can't see it anyway. I've sanded this out, as it was unsightly...
The end cap clip added to it, looking good I think. I'm looking forward to painting it, to be honest! That's going to take quite a bit longer as I'm still waiting for some parts. I'm thinking of selling it when I'm done, as funding for my TD. I want to build a Bapty as it is, so I won't be using it! Now, unfortunately once this blaster is done, I won't be really active anymore on the FISD, I've decided to build a Sandtrooper. If you're interested you can of course follow me on the MEPD! That's it for now folks, thanks for watching!
