Foam and Plastic Feed Plate for the T-21

I think this part is called the feed plate?  I don't know anything about blasters in real life.  But it looks like a thing on a blaster, so, yay?

This is essentially several layers of EVA foam and 1/8" white plastic styrene.  The foam is glued together with contact cement, and the plastic bits are just dry fit into place to make sure things are coming together as they should.

So far, so good!  Now to tackle getting my pattern traced on to my 1" thick EVA foam.  Cutting that out will require use of my jigsaw... wish me luck!
