Build a Alternative Han Solo Blaster




when you combine Iamthecreater's blaster tutorial and Honus's han solo's costume what do you get? this tutorial. I first off want to give Honus due respect for his tutorial, I looked through it and was instantly influenced by it, I thought that his blaster was cool and although it looked cool could of used some work. second off I will say this is currently not a finished tutorial so don't be to harsh on the comments...... Please!?!

Step 1: The Handle

I used piece of lumber for the handle but I'm not sure if this will work out I'm thinking of using a piece of mdf and the make to side pieces so its more of a rounded handle than a flat one. for my design I just looked up some reference pictures on the net. one of the sites that give alternative angles is But after some study of the gun I was able to draw a 2-d drawing of it to fit MY hand. then for different pieces cut them out of the picture and traced them on the wood used for that specific piece. (as shown with the handle)

Step 2: The Body

next I cut the body out of my picture and traced it then cut it out with my scroll saw. then I took a wood clam and clamped it down in order to to some engraving into it with my dremel tool for detail.

Step 3: The Scope

for the scope what I did was fit a piece of pvc inside the other I don't recall the sizes, all I used was scrap pieces of pvc around the workshop. also to get the scope look I grinded it to have a funnel look.

Step 4: The Barrel

all I used for the barrel was another SCRAP piece of metal tubing. I used a drill bit to drill in the front where the barrel will slide in. after I got to this point I broke out the epoxy and epoxied all the pieces together except the handle

Step 5: Finishing Up

I built the part at the end of the barrel out of a safety con found at the dollar tree and a piece of pvc. I later on used wood puddy to smooth it out th

    I like the way you have overcome functional-fixedness of objects (ie the tip off the direction cone). The buildup is interesting too. I think the scope development was nice also.

    Nice job, but if you didn't know, it was based off a Mauser C-98/96/whatever it is, there are airsoft versions that go for like $15.
