Not sure if this is where to ask, but I'll throw it out anyway...what do you use to fill in screw holes (on Nerf type guns) that you are modifying? Something putty-wise that eventually hardens and can be sanded and painted...

bondo works as does epoxy putty although the putty takes a lot longer to cure.

Is there a blaster manufacturer like Ultra Sabers or Saber forge?

A good number of us also prefer to build our own custom creations with airsoft bases, found parts, and custom-tooled bits.  If you're looking for a grab-and-go blaster, though, expect to pay through the nose, on most counts.

None really - just make sure it can't be mistaken for a lightsabre.

Only real wrinkle I can think with blades is making sure they're safe for use at a con if you were planning to attend one.  Some cons will have a weapons policy that disallows hard 'clubbing' type weapons - so check the policy before attending and leave them off your kit.

Right now I'm in the middle of creating a couple of MDF vibroswords based on the ones used by the commando droids in Clone Wars - I'll only carry them with my kit where appropriate.  There are some good tutorials here for creating lit vibroblades but I'm going to use the Adam Savage trick of using aluminium tape to make a realistic metal blade effect (http://www.tested.com/art/makers/460153-one-day-builds-customizing-adams-hero-sword/)

One thing that is worth being careful of is Sintra/Foamex for a full-length blade - it'll be possible but will be prone to easily snapping.

This is all great info. I plan on throwing in a functioning Trandoshan ACP Array Gun with my kit... ripping the reference images off of RepCom was a pain, sorting through system files and crap. I eventually found a guide on TDH though. I might end up being the first Mando with a Trando shotgun....

The question was never what lesson I had to learn. Rather, it was what trials I would have to go through to learn them.

Oh, yeah, and following up on my earlier post about Vibro Blades...



This is how they turned out!

Would a z-6 rotary blaster canon be allowed?
