    Here is the Buck Rogers Blaster MK-I "Buck's Blaster".
    I started with the barrel. It is the same as the other blaster. So nothing new.

    Thank you one and all for the kind words and encouragement.

    These blasters were fun builds. I greatly enjoyed building them. While building them, I was wtching BRTC25, and remembering all of teh good times of when my mum and I would sit and watch it together.

    Once this is released, I look forward to seeing some of you building these models and posting your work.

    ENJOY!!!

    Awesome build, thanks for sharing such ! Question if I may, has yourself or anyone else gotten a pattern of the rifle-version of the blaster, such briefly seen in the pilot episode-feature film, as carried by the Directorate ground troops in the Old Chicago ruins rescue scene ?

    I do not think that there is a kit for the rifle version out yet. I will run it past Revell-fal and see what wee can do about such.
    If you have any good screen shots (or other photos) of it, that would be a great help.

    Thank you for the idea.

    It's not on my todo list yet. Maybe when I have a bit more time.

    Hello again! This is my test build. I have revised the plans and used silver card from packaging material for the stripes. Now it's a really flashy, erh, "Bucky" (!) gun! And it's almost ready for release. Stay tuned! :wave:

    That is a beautiful weapon. As always, you have done a FANTASTIC job on this. It is even better the mine.
    That is an OUTSTANDING JOB!!!

    Did a bit of Googling and did find a few photos of the rifle variant, I seemed to recall it being a bit 'beefier' but mind just be faded memory of seeing the pilot episode-feature film so long ago. I'll keep searching, has to be a better image out there.
