    I just might.....a gun needs a holster. I'll have to start going through costume pix looking at the holster and gun belt.

    I've always wanted one of those jackets, too.:mrgreen:

    Here are some pics of the hoster and belt that I hope will help with your build.

    So will this be available any time soon? If so, how many centurions do I have to exterminate to get one?

    How are you able to find those pics? I ran a full web sweep and didn't found these... Great! Thanks, man! :thumb:

    To all: I have already designed (and unfolded) the golden marker on the belt (in 1:1 scale), so there is no need to develop it again. It was supposed to be a little surprise add-on which should come with the plans for the blaster. But now... I felt to spoil it! :p

    This is it, a sneak preview of the marker. It is 3 3/4" high (sounds familiar, doesn't it?).

    I give you the (approximate) dimensions of the blaster, too, in case anyone tries to make a holster. So you may ensure that everything fits ;-) . Please bear in mind that there are two types of Colonials: Starbucks (= right-handed) and Apollos (= left-handed), so we need a mirrored version of the holster, too.

    Looks good so far. It will make a good addition to the blaster.

    I am now developing the last small greeblies on the outer hull. Some of them will be very small and I wonder if they can be built. My idea to use extensive laminations to get raised surface structures seems to be the easiest and most effective way.

    Can't wait for this one.

    I can't wait for this one. I've wanted Colonial Blaster since I saw the original show. Looking good so far.
