build a TOS phaser???? Answered

Any ideas on how to build a real looking phaser for a Halloween costume for under $30

Find every photo you can of the TOS phaser. (One of the Star Trek Technical Manuals probably has excellent design sketches...) Figure out how to break its design down into simpler parts that you can find or make, and how to put them back together again. Assemble carefully, paint carefully. Or you could just start with a block of wood and cut away everything that doesn't look like a phaser. That takes longer...
