Revvek's SE-44C [IF-T5H] blaster build

Recommended Posts

AND, here is my build log for my SE-44C, also from the Imperial Factory!

again, they are beautiful PRO level SLA prints.

unfortunately in transport there was a little bit of an issue in a very fragile point on 1 part. 

it had a crack.

so, I used some CA glue, with some paper to add reinforcing in the back, and a bit of baking soda on the front and it's all good now.

I made some progress on this blaster!  

primed the muzzle to check for any more areas needing sanding before paint.

sorted out all the tiny bits that need glueing.

cleaned up and glued on the bottom rail bars

primed that section to find issues.  there is an area on the slant that needs more attention to smooth.

also got one magnet glued in. however I realized after trying to put the on in the grip, they are not the dimensions I ordered.. they are a bit thicker... 

so I didn't get the grip side glued up yet...

also started to look at ways to make this red LED actually light up. ordered a few things to play with ideas...

I'm going to explore making the red LED bump actually light up.

got some parts to play with, like this glowing backlight, I will look at trimming to size and installing behind a red lens.

found a spring.

made 6 2mm x 10mm pins.

this is the primer I'm using.

it's great for getting a sense of the surface after sanding and patching areas, but it's not so thick that it hides any details I want to keep.

testing some white on the grip part. this is the Universal White

not sure I like this paint... or I just don't know how to use this funny can yet... it sputters when first starting to spray, so you need to start well off the part.

there was a hint of layer lines left, and I wasn't sure if this white would hide them or not.

it didn't.

the yellow cast is the light not the paint.
