Step 1: Parts made of MDF

Picture of Parts made of MDF
I first printed out an AutoCad drawing of the Blaster that would roughly fit into my hand the first part I decided to make would be the trigger and the inner handle which is the first image you see. This Is just a piece of MDF I found in the workshop and I used A Band saw to cut the piece out. I then used a dremil to hollow out the piece for your trigger finger. 

2. The second image is of the scope where I did the same as above with the same sheet of MDF. After I cut it out I then attached and sculpted some Milliput on the top of the MDF to make the scope.

3. The other to pictures are of the barrel of the gun where I used a lathe to get it to be perfectly round.
It blew my mind when I found the downed UFO and this blaster in the game. Nice build!

Thanks! I'm playing Fallout New Vegas at the moment and I just found the group of aliens but there was a glitch and the alien blaster wasn't there...
Great looking build! Love to see quality cosplay props like this! As far as being unable to find the blaster in the game, I just wanted to share some info if maybe it will help.

First, make sure you have the "Wild Wasteland" perk offered to you at the beginning. If you do not have it, the Blaster will instead be a special Gauss Rifle found on the Captain.
Also if it is just not there, supposedly loading a save to before you encounter the aliens will fix that.
Lastly, if you have any companions, CHECK THEIR INVENTORY! I spent like a half hour once looking for the All American, only to find Boon swiped it when I wasn't looking.

Hopefully one of those helps, buddy! Not trying to insult your intelligence with these either, just trying to help you obtain one of the best weapons in the game :) Glad to see another fan.

Ha no worries thanks for the advice! Unfortunately I never saved it just before I found the aliens and I did have the wild wasteland perk on. It could've been a possibility Boone could've taken it but I realised that once you part ways with a companion all their inventory disappears and I don't know where it goes...

I've also heard stories of people just bumping into a fiend in the middle of the wasteland and they have the alien blaster on them!
Holy CRAP. I think I would be more pissed finding it on a fiend than not finding it at all haha. Well again, great build. Always glad to find other Fallout Fans, gives me hope for a Fallout 4...
