  1. Did anyone ever bought the RWA MG34 and made the R1 DLT19 variant? I amw odnering if there are casts availible.
  2. The Rogue one T-21 research post. The Original triology version of the T-21 is similar but compared to the Rogue one variant has some differences. After reading SlyFox740 his post on his intensive research of the R1 E-11 I wondered if the T-21 was also build around a airsoft gun instead of a real one. The T-21 was based on the Lewis gun, after looking around there exist no airsoft replica's. I will use SlyFox740 original post to describe the separate parts added onto the blaster so all credit to him. Highly recommend reading through his post first. The Base Gun I think the base of the blaster is a cast from an original Lewis gun, with added details. The Flashlight The flashlight on the right side of the blaster; an Element M300A Mini Scout Light (Knockoff replica of a SureFire M300 Tactical Flashlight) The Flashlight Rail The flashlight rail is mounted to the right side of the blaster. There are many short 3-slot picatinny rails available but the screen used one has sharp corners with a rounded groove on the back surface to mount flush against the side of the airsoft receiver tube. Research: The base gun The T-21 is only visible in short fragments. These are the best images I found. This one is a soft rubber cast, the stock is bend and the ironsight is a solid block. Only two T-21 were seen at the same time. It would not suprise me if only one Hero blaster exists and the other one in this shot is the cheap rubber cast made from the Hero prop. The Hero T-21 is not the same in every scene, but it is very common to loose or damage props while filming. The sling and ironsight detail could haev easily been lost or broken of. With the limited images avalible its hard to get actual details. I want to give some attention to certain areas of the blaster. The stock seen in R1 is black, and has a clean silluete meaning there are no protruding parts on the stock. This is different compared to the ANH T-21. This was all I could gather with the fuzzy images avalible. When looking at the HotToys figurine for a R1 Stormtrooper, we can see that the stock looks as if its a heavily damged piece of wood. but I am uncertain if this was the same for the actual film used props, so the accuracy of the HotToys blaster should be taken with a grain of salt. R1 T-21 HotToys T-21 (R1) Ironsight detail In the middle of the blaster we sometimes see a little piece what looks to be half a circle with a hole in it. I am not able to identify or find a found part that matched this apperance. R1 T-21 HotToys Blaster (R1) Ribbed tube The ribbed tube is again badly visible, In my opinion they look to be flatter and more spaced apart in R1 than what the HotToys blaster is showing us. R1 T-21 HotToys Blaster (R1) Sling In some scenes a sling can be seen for carrying the T-21. No accurate reference is avalible to show where exactly and how the sling is secured to the blaster. The Flashlight The flashlight used is an Element M300A Mini Scout Light which is actually an airsoft replica of a real SureFire M300 Tactical Flashlight. The difference is the knockoff costs around $50 while the real thing is worth around $300. I am uncertain if the flashlight on the T-21 is a casted variant or not. The Flashlight Rail The flashlight is mounted to the right side of the blaster. There are many short 3-slot picatinny rails available but the screen used one has sharp corners with a rounded groove on the back surface to mount flush against the side of the airsoft receiver tube.
  3. Death troopers DLT-19D blasters are used by Death troopers. These have added details. The base gun This is a casted variant of the MG-34 RWA. You can tell that it is a casted variant by the holes in the barrel. These are now closed up. Also the side of the blaster where originally bullets would eject from, has a plate in front of it closing that opening.
  4. The Rogue one DLT-19 deserve its own research post. The Original triology version of the DLT-19 is similar but compared to the Rogue one variant has some big and small differences. After reading SlyFox740[TK] his post on his intensive research of the R1 E-11 I wondered if the DLT-19 was also build around a airsoft gun instead of a real one. Comparing pictures of the prop and the real one I quickly saw that the two are different and is indeed based on the airsoft MG-34 variant. I will use a lot of SlyFox740[TK] original post to describe the separate parts added onto the blaster so all credit to him. Highly recommend reading through his post first. Let's start with a good high quality image of the DLT-19. Source: Rogue one The ultimate visual guide. Beautiful German engineering, uh I mean BlasTech engineering. The Base Gun The DLT-19 blasters in R1 are based on an Airsoft RWA MG-34 The T-Track code: ER060B8. https://www.tubewaysales.com/cat/plastic-trims-and-miscellaneous-items/plastic-insert-and-t-track/ The Flashlight The flashlight on the right side of the blaster; an Element M300A Mini Scout Light (Knockoff replica of a SureFire M300 Tactical Flashlight) The Flashlight Rail The flashlight is mounted to the right side of the airsoft gun through the receiver holes using a short 3-slot picatinny rail. There are many short 3-slot picatinny rails available but the screen used one has sharp corners with a rounded groove on the back surface to mount flush against the side of the airsoft receiver tube. Research: The base gun Rogue one DLT-19 RWA (RedWolfAirsoft) MG-34 replica Original German MG-34 At first glance no difference, but with a lot of things its in the details where we can see some slight differences. The easiest to spot are the bolts. Rogue one DLT-19 RWA (RedWolfAirsoft) MG-34 replica Original German MG-34 Here we can see that the original MG-34 uses a flat head bolt and rivets. The Rogue one DLT-19 uses inbus bolts and a Philips bolt. These match with the RWA bolts. It was easy to find the airsoft MG-34 that matched these details. Because only one brand makes Airsoft MG-34 replica's. Denix also makes MG-34 replica's, but these are metal non firing display pieces. Accurately replicated the original MG-34, so the bolts do not match the Rogue one DLT-19. Only two DLT-19 were seen at the same time. It would not suprise me if only one Hero blaster exists and the other one in this shot a rubber cast made from the Hero prop. This one in the image is the actual RWA replica as prop. We can see that this is not a cast because the barrel holes are still open and there is brown visible on the stock, like the airsoft replica. There is a block added on the other side of the blaster, this block is in the slot where the magazine normale slights in. I sadly do not have a better image. Note that the the other side, were normally bullets would eject, is still open and you can see inside the blaster. With the Hot toys figurine, I have found slightly better angles Sling placement Using the HotToys blaster these two spots are where the sling can be attached to the blaster. The blaster has been modified to make the sling connect. The T-Track Cut of at a sharp angle (around 30 degrees) and glued on the barrel of the DLT-19. It is sourced from a company in the U.K. called Tubeway Sales LTD. It is called "Insert Track" and it is designed for sliding doors, this T-track is sold under the product code: ER060B8. https://www.tubewaysales.com/cat/plastic-trims-and-miscellaneous-items/plastic-insert-and-t-track/ The Flashlight The flashlight used is an Element M300A Mini Scout Light which is actually an airsoft replica of a real SureFire M300 Tactical Flashlight. The difference is the knockoff costs around $50 while the real thing is worth around $300. I am uncertain if the flashlight on the DLT-19 is a casted variant or not. The Flashlight Rail The flashlight is mounted to the right side of the airsoft gun through the receiver holes using a short 3-slot picatinny rail. There are many short 3-slot picatinny rails available but the screen used one has sharp corners with a rounded groove on the back surface to mount flush against the side of the airsoft receiver tube.
  5. Sorry for the mistake, here is the correct one. https://www.501st.com/members/displaymemberdetails.php?userID=28001
