Han Solo Cardboard Blaster With Magnetic Display Board





Introduction: Han Solo Cardboard Blaster With Magnetic Display Board

This is my Cardboard take on the Han Solo Blaster DL-44 from Star Wars Episode IV.

To display the Blaster properly I build a magnetic Frame / Display Board, witch lets you attach and detach the Sculpture without any kind of visible elements (when the gun is on the board).

The whole DL-44 is just made from Cardboard, Paper (for the Barrel and the Scope) and glue. For the display Board I used Cardboard,wrapping Paper, Glue, three Magnets, cord and Spray Paint.

I try to use as little as Possible tools on my Models. This keeps the investment, if you try to build it yourself, at a reasonable level.

Step 1: Time Lapse Time ; )

A Video says more than a thousand Word. So this Video shows the whole building process start to finish. It is quit long, but to show it all there was no way around it.

Step 2: Finally "The Magnetic Display Board"

Here I talk about why I needed to build the display board and then show some closeups of it, with and without the Blaster attached. This is followed by a Time Lapse of the complete process.

I hope you could get something out of this "Presentation"

I would love to hear what you think about it.

Best wishes from Berlin, Germany

The End.

oh my god this is amazing the only thing that beats this is the original from the cantina scene

Amazing. Nice job dude.

You're a master of cardboard! I like that you did it by hand without any laser printer or things like that as many people these days. Perfect project!

Thank you! I like the "Low Tech" approach.

Very true! I too think peps are over rated. There so much human mind can do!

force awaken really have awaken our craft ideas! I did my fair share of cardboard paper craft. Nicely done! I am doing a 3d print

Project for the contest... If I didn't learn 3d graphics, I might as well be building the same gun as you do! Haha

A 40 min. "time laps" ? the presentation wasn't very helpful.

No way, this is super cool!!! voted XD
