    Hello Ladies and gentlemen ( as well as human eating Visitors).

    Today I bring you the beta build of the "V" Blaster (designed and created by Revell-fan)

    Here are the photos for your viewing pleasure:

    8 pages of parts

    This is the back side of the sliding (yes I said sliding) activator switch.

    I placed black paper over the back so that you can not see through the open slits of the slide.

    Great work, RB! The idea for the slide cover is magnificent. I'd like to add this to the final plans if you don't mind.

    To the fans: Just for you to know, RB is building the revised version with the accurized colour scheme. As soon as he has finished the build, the model will be released for everyone to enjoy.

    I am sorry for such a long break in this build, but I was on holiday.
    I am back home now, so here is an update on my progress

    This is the mid section part of the barrel. For those of you who are thinking about making this into a costume prop, you can make this part out of acrylic.

    This spacer plate can be made from 2mm card stock and edged black if you do not want to make the "box".

    If you are wanting this to be sturdy, you can insert thin formers to help with rigidity

    All I have to do is add all of the greebles and build the stand.
