Han Solo’s ESB Hoth DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol

I just finished a project that has been keeping me busy for a while (which I will write about soon) so I thought I would come back to my DL-44 blaster and make the hero version used on Hoth. Not much has changed from the Bespin version; the only real differences in the two versions are in the mount for the scope and the details on the flash hider.

For the scope mount, the bracket dimensions are just a little different and the knurled knob is replaced with a metal disc of some sort with three machine screws attaching it to the gun body. The flash hider goes from the three knurled stripes on the base to just one narrow stripe and one wide stripe, and the transition to the flared part is a bevel instead of a bullnose radius.


More versions of Han Solo’s DL-44 to come.
