How to Make a Star Trek Phaser Rifle





Introduction: How to Make a Star Trek Phaser Rifle

hello this is How to make a Star Trek phaser rifle similar to the later star trek movies and tv
it is not a 100% accurate phaser  but i think is fair 

Step 1: Gather Materials

you will need

1. a large sheet of styrofoam
2. a pen ( or better yet a sharpie.)
3.a picture of the phaser so you have references
4.scissors glue gun and hot glue
6.cardboard tape

Step 2: Draw the Phaser

 Draw the phaser rifle on the styrofoam to the size of the phaser
( Unfortunely  I used a pen so the picture didn't come out too well.)

Step 3: Cut It Out

cut out  the shape of the phaser  and it's recessed areas out of the styrofoam  like so

Step 4: Building Back Up Part 1

glue a few strips of cardboard together and glue to your cut out like in the picture

Step 5: Building Up Part 2

 build a trigger a trigger guard up with layered cardboard like in the picture

Step 6: Boxing Off Part One

box off the  little area like in the picture

Step 7: Boxing the Next Area

make another boxed in area like picture depilcts

Step 8: Just Boxing Some More

 just continue boxing like in the picture

Step 9: Almost There

 just finish up boxing up here similar to the picture

Step 10: The Scope

 if you look at the the pictures it's self explanitory

Step 11: Wrap in Duck Tape

wrap in duck tape color in and go shoot something I guess?

    How does it work? There was nothing in it for it to shoot.

    I think it looks really cool I just don't think duct tape is to clean

    Soooo cooool MUST BE ASSIMILATED

    Actually that's a near perfect representation of the Phaser compression rifle from star trek voyager:elite force an excellent 1st person shooter that runs off of quake 3

    Also I would make this out of wood as it would be alot stronger could be spray painted and would weigh the same as a real gun of that size if not heavier.
    also you could file down the edges to make it curved.

    It's not, it's based on a Type-III Phaser Rifle, albeit a very rough interpretation of one...

    lolo can u actually make it work?
