    Hey, thanks! I dont have any schematics for release right now.

    I actually hope to have a kit out soon that will come with some instructions for retrofitting a Kenner blaster. You can extrapolate that to your own blaster as well.

    Hold on let me check my archives... personally I reccomend this E-11 baisically because of the fact that it is FULL METAL not some winky dinky PVC blaster. Here: http://www.studiocreations.com/howto/blasterrifle/main.html

    Yep, saw that one a couple of years ago.

    It's hard to believe that I completely forgot about that site. Must be related to the fact that I had to accept that I'm just too damned short to be a Stormtrooper.....

    Metal means harder to work with without proper tools. [face_beatup]

    No offence, but the metal blaster is also highly inaccurate.

    In a prop, Looks are everything.

    I have a PVC blaster that I am in the process of building from the plans at the BBC

    Its just Primered right now, so the tape is still over the ejection port, but I will clean it up and paint it soon.

    That is a VERY good looking (and accurate looking, too) blaster you've got going there, Minder.



    As to the innaccuracy of the Metal blasters on the StudioCreations site, I've watched the movies many, many times (as I'm sure you all have as well) and I've noticed a LOT of inconsistencies among them:
    Different lengths of clips
    Different scopes
    Not all had ejection ports
    Some had missing chamber levers
    Some had barrels
    Some had really cool looking barels

    Many of the inconsistencies that I noted occurred within the same movie, but each movie had multiple, different variations.

    I reffer to mine as an E-11 prototype. I KNOW it's not movie-accurate. But I'm happy with it. It has a really good feel to it because of the weight. Not enough to be a good work out.....

    You are correct, but they were all based on Sterling sub machine guns, and therefore real weapons, the pipe blasters add a totaly new set of differencews that just arent screen accurate, and thats whats important to me.
