Scope mounting location for Doopy's

Recommended Posts

OK you experts. I am attempting to come up with a scope mounting location for the Doopy’s resin kit. I figured my location by using the three photos of Han, Luke and Leia holding their blasters. I know how wide the rear sight is. I measure it at 1-1/32†wide. So it looks to me like the end of the scope is three rear sights up the gun (see the Leia image). I looked around the FISD forum and was only able to find a reference at this thread-

The photos you have are probably the best reference you can have, nice job and you would be perfect in following those guidelines.

the rail is 3/4" wide and the rear foot on an m38 aligns with the folding stock hinge.

for an m19 scope the rear foot is aligned just a 1/4" farther back than the hinge.

 

han is holding an m19 scope version while luke and leia also have the m19

 

edited for scope correction.

 

you can also see the small section of T Track on the top of the scope.

There where so many versions in the movie, different scopes, placed differently, with or without power cylinders, listen to Vern he is a blaster guru :D

I'd worry more about how the holster was cut. The scope is the first thing that stops the blaster from going straight through. Then the mag well.

the blank firing guns were tossed around quite a bit during the luke han leia detention block scene.

 

in several situations the guns all get passed around.

 

in fact in the photos above the scopes are all m19's

OK - so the three photos I picked of Han, Luke and Leia all use the M19 scope. I thought as much, but wanted to check.

Dradts !!! :huh: .

So back to my original question/statement.

The doopy's comes with the M38 scope (see massive close up shot below).

Would the M38 rear scope foot align with the folding stock hinge?

the alignment varys. I like to center the rear foot directly above the hinge.

and I like to center the hengstler logo directly across from the front foot of the scope.

 

this puts the scope, and counter closer to the magazine well, and it varys from billhag's templates by about 1/4" or so.

I like to keep the counter and scope close to the mag well.

 

this is probably the best shot scope on the left is m19 scope on the right is m38

you can see how close the scope and counter are to the magazine in this shot.

 

also seen is a small cut section of T Track glued to the top of the scope.

on the left it's just the lighting reflecting the white armor in the black. movie lighting in this scene is quite white.

or it's the unpainted blaster rail we've seen in other screenshots. we'll have to look at the scene again!

 

white walls, white armor, white lights... all adds up to white washed out reflections. they are all painted if you watch the scene

with movement?

 

the trooper in the center is using the same blaster as luke in the photos, you can tell by the T Track glued to the scope.

this version appears to have a longer magazine, since most likely it's a blank firing real sterling.

 

 

the other 2 troopers have painted sight rails as well, again it's partially the weathering and lighting.

OK sorry for the long delay.

This is my "suggested" mounting location for the Doopy's M38 Scope.
