Convergence Props: ESB EE-3 Boba Fett Blaster Filming Configuration Guides

Hey guys
Some of you already probably saw these on FB and such, but this is the official post for this little side research project I've been doing for my favorite prop.

These are all the configurations for the ESB Boba Fett Blaster as seen on screen throughout Empire Strikes Back which I have divided up into Early, Mid and Late Filming configurations using the help of @RafalFett 's wonderful research here The Empire Strikes Back - Boba Fett's on stage chronology

I did my best to replicate all these changes as accurately as possible in regards to what happened and where/how parts moved or disappeared. Oddly the Mid filming configuration is what looks to be on screen the most, and is what most people do for their stock greeblies configuration.
Hope these all help you in recreating whichever variant of this prop you like. I'm kind of slightly more partial towards Mid configuration myself where it has slightly more "character" with all the wonky stuff

Early Configuration: (The original state of this prop, but least seen in the film)

These are fantastic Dana. I so appreciate your attention to detail. Thanks for making these and sharing them! Now I need to finish my EE-3 lol
Hopefully this question isn't forbidden, who makes a metal and wood replica of this rifle? Is there more than one manufacturer? Have those been evaluated by other here? I have seen resin/cast/plastic ones out there, but would need something more accurate to use for 501st certification and trooping. Thanks and please forgive my ignorance up front. I know very little on this subject and the people here are very knowledgeable so I thought I would ask.
