T-21 Build (I'm Bored)


Recommended Posts

So still waiting for armor and done as much as I can up until now, two blasters made so I thought I would give a T-21 a go. Unlike the E-11's most of the materials for this build I have around the place or I can get for next to nothing. Found lots of info and some templates so hold on here I go.

Marking out first, measure twice, cut one

Now to glue a few of the wood pieces, wonder if I have enough clamps, wonder who I could ask LOL

ah man, here we go again, another build to be jealous of :laugh1: Good luck with this one Glen!

 

Naw not much to this one, looks easier than E-11, but will be adding lights and sound. Hope my use of clamps was sufficient LOL

Made some spacers to take up the gap between the tubes and added the tapered section

Glen, You have awesome skills!

 

Thanks but not much to this one, much easier than an E-11

 

Found a couple of water fittings, had hexagon heads so had to turn them down on a friends lathe, then used a file to make the knurl effect

This was the only ribbed pipe I could find

Was 30 mm too narrow so what I did was slice it down the middle, cut some sections out of the off cut then glued and siliconed them in.

And this is what I have so far

Cut and modified some pipe to make the outer rings, had to enlarge one and reduce another, also found a couple of O rings for some of the finer detailing

Used pieces from two coupling to make the front section and taper

All the pieces on the pipe, think I will paint them all seperately and assemble later with a dab of silicon to hold them in case I want to change any pieces later.

A few details pieces done

Using some reticulation dripper pipe for the barrel detailing, easy to bend when heated, then tape it to the barrel to hold it's shape until it cools, gives me time to do the blue wire twist :D .

You are too kind Charles

 

Here is where I am up to at this stage. Next step will be trying to round and taper the wood

Your building and prop making skills are awesome.

 

Thanks Phil :)

 

Just did a bit of rounding on the butt, drilled the chanels for the oil brush and holder

Using the electronics from a $6.00 toy gun.

Assembled on the front which is hidden in the pipe, added another speaker and a red hi-bright led

Fitting a small micro swith, spring and trigger

Found a small push battery light, using the front cover as it will give a nice look inside the pipe instead of just seeing the one led. Even with only one led the beam of light is quite intense.

You are tooooooo kind Clamps. Just trying to whittle away the hours, waiting for armor ahhhhhhr, don't know how others do it LOL. Hopefully I have all the info, and I have a copy of the proposed new requirements to be listed soon, so I should be right aiming for Centurion from the start. Just waiting for that armor is ready to ship email :blink:

Not sure about weathering as yet, may leave it in pristine condition for a while, then do some weathing down the track, I can see a sandtrooper armor build in the not too distant future, I have been bitten by the bug LOL. I do have plans and pic's for a DLT-19 so there may be a build coming to you soon
