Update time, and boy have I been bad at that. I don't think my goal to have this ready for Comic Con will happen. I'm going to be out of town next weekend and there is still a bunch to do, including bondo on a lot of seams and small blemishes I made. That also doesn't include painting and weathering. At least I still have my E-11.

The barrel is mostly done, just need to glue the 2 barrels together. I also need to add the flared end to the end of the barell. I still have some details to add to the main body and finish the sight on the feed plate. And lots more sanding.

Here's to getting it done soon.

I actually had left over plastic from a "For Sale" sign that I used on my pack build. I just used that, so it's thinner than the styrene might be. But it didn't cost me anything so a win there.

Update time. The majority of the fabrication is done, now time to Bondo it until it's as smooth as a baby's butt.

Shooting for the end of the month. Depends on how long it takes me to master Bondo as I've never used it before.

Love it. I may try to create a scaled down version of this for myself.

I apologize for any lack of updates. I got lazy on that regard. What you'll see here is the FINISHED product, finally. I spent way too much time with Bondo (being a beginner, I used too much on the reducer and had to do a LOT of sanding). All in all, I love how it turned out. I left some pieces off, such as the front and rear sights, the gas plugs in the stock, etc. Some of those pieces were either very fragile and broke while I worked with them (the sights) or on the others, I just wanted it to be easier to troop with.

Big thank you to TJ, who not only let me borrow his Dremel for a few weeks, but allowed me to come to his home on several nights and use his table saw to cut out the templates in the wood. He was also always ready to answer questions I had (especially about the Bondo). I really do appreciate it.

With this now being completed, it's time for a break. I've spent the past year (maybe a little more) building my armor, then my pack, and now the T-21.

But enough talk, picture time.

Thanks for looking. Hopefully this thread will help someone down the line. If anyone has questions, please feel free to ask and I'd love to help you.

As many of you have probably seen, HappyTrooper posted a video with templates and a parts list for a do-it-yourself RT-97c build. Needing a new project and loving the look of this blaster, I decided to tackle it. This is in no way a build thread, but more just a few pictures showing the process that I went through. If you want the full build thread, go check out his video.

If you are interested in making your own, you can find his video here: https://youtu.be/ZJHZ1WYtUFI

Also, if you are interested in doing a DLT-19, he also has a video, templates, and parts list as well. You can find that video here: https://youtu.be/_UowOa4-n_0

One small note: I did use ABS pipe as much as I could due to the lighter weight. I used it for the 2” pipe, both 3” couplers, and the 2” to 1.5” reducer. I also used other corner braces and other small parts that I already had around the house. Overall, this gun is super lightweight and I can’t wait to troop in it.

I plan on unveiling this at the Intermountain Healing Hearts event that is coming up on 09/09/2017. Pictures to come of this baby in action.

Huge thanks to HappyTrooper for providing the templates, parts list, and amazing video. Your work is truly inspiring.

In following my RT-97c build, I decided to go ahead and complete my Sandtrooper armory by completing a DLT-19, thereby having every single blaster the Sandtroopers had in the movies. If you saw my previous post, I decided to follow HappyTrooper’s video and templates. It was again a blast to make.

If you are interested in making your own, you can find his video here: https://youtu.be/_UowOa4-n_0
