I just got my newest prop from a guy on the island who owns a company called Digital 360. He is the same one who originally did a bust of me in costume at the last toy show. I was later telling him I was going to do a SE-44C blaster pistol and asked how much it would cost to print one. The cost was very good so I went for it when I got it not only did he make one but two for me so now I can have one like the movie version and one with a scope. The only issue is the pistol grip is the wrong size we used a file i found on line so it wasn't any issue with his work and I will take care of that later.
These are the photos of the SE-44C with the nerf one for comparison. I plan on painting up the Nerf one for the kids to use in photo shoots.
And here you can see the size difference of the grip compared to my 1:1 airsoft gun
My 181st Tie costume is very slowly coming along just need to make my chest box and a few other parts and buy the Tie helmet and flak vest that will be the expensive part for me roughly $600. I will fund that by selling of collection parts just got to see what will get the most figure wise, I do have a fellow in the city interested in two of my MR removable sabers but until they are sold then I am not relying on it.
Once I get more parts done i will show the progress of my costume
