    I was wondering if anyone knew of a good resource for guns and blasters online. I will be making a smugglers outfit for my RPG character and wanted to make some weapons... maybe a the slide out hand held small blaster and or how to make a thermal detonator

    Me, I use the PVC Blaster Builders Club...AWESOME site.

    Fort Tusken also has some tutorials.

    I made a smuggler's blaster last summer by simply painting a $1 water gun I found at Wal-mart. Base of black paint with black & silver paint mixed for details and weathering. For something quick and cheap, it doesn't look too bad.

    I made a pair of blasters, a hold-out style blaster, a couple lightsabers and a comlink. The blasters were old Sega lightguns that I painted a few coats of silver then a few coats of black, then scuffed it a bit with sandpaper to show the silver through (for that used look). I did the same for the Hold-out, it started life as a rather unusual looking cap gun I found at a flea market. I have pics on my page, link 2 below.

    I have made a custom blaster myself. What I did to make mine is I took a airsoft gun (berreta model) and took it apart, put a N64 booster pack in the top where the clip would have came out. Then I actually rigged a LED pen inside and so when you pull the trigger it lights up the barrel of the gun. I also have made a comlink too, and now I am working on a new gun and a lightsaber (which has taken for ever) I should post pics someday...

    I made a Solo blaster from a Mauser replica, an E-11 upgrade on a Hasbro E-11, and scratch built a Rebel Fleet Trooper laster and a big MG-34 from wood and PVC.

    Right now I am almost done with my Endor/Hoth Rebel blaster rifle. Certainly my most detailed and complicated piece. I've impressed myself. All that's left if mounting the top scope and painting. I'll post pics when I'm done. It's amazing what you can do with a router, a piece of wood and some PVC pipe!

    I've almost finished my Endor Blaster Rifle, carried by the rebel commandos. All it needs is a coat of paint and some weathering.

    It's 100% garage built, using wood, PVC and some odds and ends stuck on. It may be a little shorter than the real prop...it's hard to tell. Once I paint it it should look great, though. I impressed myself with how close it looks to the real thing.

    Looking good, Skaught. But then, those of us that know you would expect nothing less! ;)

    Can't wait to see it when it's been painted! :)

    A few months back, I was attempting to make an M-4 rifle from lumber. (like the M-16 lower receiver you have there) Even with the tools and equipment at my disposal, I decided it was going to be more trouble than I wanted to fool with. Kudos for sticking with it.
