    I am building a hardware E 11 blaster (stormtrooper blaster) from ANH and was wondering if anyone had any building tips.

    Did you even notice that someone already posted in an old thread about that 10 min. before you posted this? :rolleyes:

    Maybe you had your message window open too long. Though it doesn't take too long to type out one sentence.
    :p

    Heh, I do that too. Sometimes I think I've posted something and forgotten and left for a while, leaving the window open. By the time I his the Post Reply button, several others have already posted something before me. So by then my reply seems a bit out of context. :p

    I bet it's LEDs but where'd the vertical spikes of light come from? Is that just a flare from the video?

    Hey, I custom made the upgrade kit. It has ultra bright LEDs in the barrel and a 1W amp that hooks up to my sound board. Installed a new efficient speaker and a rechargeable battery pack and voila - Instant blaster goodness!

    hyperdyne,

    Excellent work on your blaster.

    I recently "finished" a metal E-11 prototype.

    I'd love to do a light and sound upgrade like you did. I'm pretty lame with electronics, but can follow directions. Do you have any schematics and material lists that you'd be willing to part with?
