This is where you can can find out information and how to make your own Jawa and information about the Jawa's

 

 

The Jawas are a scavenger species. They comb the deserts of Tatooine in search of discarded scrap and wayward mechanicals. Using their cobbled-together weaponry, they can incapacitate droids and drag them to their treaded fortress-homes, immense sand-scarred vehicles known as sandcrawlers.

Jawas form an important link in the circle of trade that connects the distant Tatooine communities. They sell their hastily refurbished junk to moisture farmers who are hard-pressed to find a better selection elsewhere. For their shoddy work and vagabond ways, they have a well-earned reputation as hucksters out to hoodwink the outlander colonists on Tatooine.

Few have ever seen the ugliness that lies beneath a Jawa mask. Jawa faces are obscured by a cloud of insects that gather in the recesses of their hoods, attracted by their foul odors. Their particular stench is a combination of poor hygiene and a mysterious solution into which Jawas dip their clothes to retain moisture. To Jawas, the odor is packed with information about each other, such as clan lineage, health, emotional state, even the last meal eaten.

Jawas have evolved several important survival traits, such as exceptional night vision, a strong immune system, and an efficient digestive system that draws all the needed nutrients from the Jawa staple diet of hubba gourd.

Jawas have long been scavengers, as the Dune Sea provides a bounty of refuse. It is littered with derelict spacecraft wreckage from millennia of star travel. The Jawas have built homes and tools from these ancient scraps, and travel the dunes in sandcrawlers, cast-off mobile smelters from failed outlander mining attempts.

Jawas live in familial clans, each with distinct territories for living and scavenging. While half the clan is crammed into the warren-like compartments of a sandcrawler, scouring the deserts for usable salvage, the other half resides within a thick-walled fortress. These desert homes were built to protect the Jawas from Sand People or roaming krayt dragons.

 

 

Jawa's At Work......

The Jawa Blasters

 

 

 

 

This is the one I based mine on (Below)

The blaster utilized by the Jawa who shot R2-D2 was built from a cut-down British Lee-Enfield No.1 MkIII* series bolt-action rifle with the grenade launcher cup attached to the shortened barrel.

Jawa Power Pack Build

Things needed to build it is wood, ABS plastic, 2 each screws, 2 each D-rings, primer, paint, leather type rivets,

5-min epoxy, 7/16" Dowel rod

1 Each 2" X 6" Board

Cut it 8" Long and it needs to be 4" wide a little over because you are going to round off the sides and cure the sides like picture below

You can see the sides how I curved and sanded them down also made in the center at the top a hole you need to drill for The 7/16" Dowel rod cut the dowel rod 4-1/2" long but only 4" you will see out of the power pack.

See Pictures below

 

I had some ABS plastic as you can see mark and cut as shown. Do it how you want to do it as long as it looks like this when you are done.

 

Now you need a heat gun and fold it around the dowel rod Glue both halves together after it is glued now trim it smaller, the height needs to be a little over 1-1/2" you have to cut a slit in the top of the Power Pack and glue in place.

I used 5-Min. Epoxy

 

These you can see I used a 1/2" ABS strip and a heat gun to make the clams for the D-rings Just measure 3" down from the top and that is where the screws go for the clamps.

The D-rings are 1-1/2" ones and I cut them down you can get 2" Heavy Duty Nickel D Rings to do the same from RowensBones@aim.com

You can also see the pattern I drew on it Both sides. I also sanded the D-Rings down too.

 

 

Now I used a Dremel and carved out the pattern I drew then I primed it.

You will also see several holes I drilled into the power pack That will be for the Antique Brass RapidRivet heads only see Finished Picture

 

I also drilled a small hole at the end of the dowel rod,

It will be to install and glue with epoxy a barb I cut off of a (1/8" barb X 1/4" MP) I got at HD item # A-85

This will be used to attach the 1/4" rubber hose from the Ion Blaster

and now I will sand it down before I paint it.

 

The leather Strap I used for the power Pack is a 7-8 oz thickness and cut to 1/2" X 60" I did get that from Nina & David Walker at: RowensBones@aim.com

 

Dye it brown so I will use the Kiwi Leather Brown Shoe Shine on it I don't want it real dark.

Now it is ready to trim to the size you may need it.

I did not cut mine it is at the right lenth I need 60" and now I will rivet the strap on.

 

 

I Sanded and Painted it with 1st a layer of Krylon Flat Black #51602

Then I used Rust-Oleum Matallic "Antique Brass Matallic" #7274

I also did them at one time so don't let them dry apply when you spray the black then the Brass, in other words mix the colors a little.

Note: In certain areas I used flat black like the bottom a little more.

 

 

Next I weather it with some model paint like Chrome Silver #FS17178 and Bright Brass I will is a cotton rag and rub it on.

Too much Glare you can't see it good.

If you want The Power Pack made like the one in the picture Contact me.
