|SUBJECT: HEAVY RETRO BLASTER|
KIT MAKER: SCRATCH-BUILT SCALE: 1:1
SPECIAL FEATURES: Retro styling was inspired by heavy sidearms seen in shows like Battlestar Galactica (the original
series, not the remake), and the Buck Roger TV series. The blaster has light & sound effects.
|Imagination is the basis for all scratch-building projects - that and a well stocked 'spare parts' box. The silver beam emitter|
was part of a model jet engine, the vents (far right) were from a model tank, the vertical ribs just behind the emitter were part
of a flashlight. The horizontal heat dissipation fins along the barrel are all individual pieces.
