Dresdon's WEPONZ Satan's Swiss Army....BFG
« on: Aug 13, 2011, 09:11 AM »
my weapons.I've started my sidearm and based it off of Han Solo's blaster. It started out as the HAN SOLO WATERBLASTER, but I took out the pump, put a green LED in the muzzle and a 5mW red Laser Cross in the scope as the aimer. The two run of of a single LR2032 battery, and I'm probably going to sell it after I get something really good like a resin cast.

As for the main weapon, It's looslyw based off of a DC-17, I'm guessing I'll call it a     Z-17R        Zombat-17 Rapid Fire :rolleyes:. I based it off of Quick load powerblaster. Greeblies I incorperated are: Aluminum heatsink, Internals from the gun itself, Part of a door, Glavanised Steel......thingies, VCR parts, cut out pieces of plastic, part f a fiberglass circuitboard contactor, a 325V variable phase motor accespanal, the head from a pump, and Yes I will  be filling in all thescrew holes. Now for some pics. O and the mag was made from some electronic specialty parts.

Unpainted, it just has the parts in place.


The power pack: O and the particle accelerators recharge it when not in use. (Shiny greeblies on the sides near the back)

POWER PACK
 
I used an ABS project box as the actual housing for it, 2 15pin PC cinnectors as the ammo port and feeder(actualy is the switch), blue LEDs(I'm going to rewire it because a couple of the LEDs arnt the same blue), 9Vbattery and Holder, LED number display, and some wide threading screws. The male plug is in the blaster itself, and I sottered all the ins together. The femaleplug is in the mag itself.

I dremeledout the back of the LED display, used black acrylic plaint to mask over some areas to make ccertain digits, Hotglued some blue LEDs behind it. I sotterd 2 halfs of the female plug into 2 halves, one going in and the other going out. it makes a swwitch,when it is plugged into the blaster it lights up the ammo counter. Easy as that.

Earth #'s also used in BF and BF2. My guess is it would be the same in the psp BF game. 4 refs, I think that would count as cannon. But the final say does not fall with me. I would state ur case with some of the AP team members.

well video games ya, cuz players arent gonna learn to read in an alien language hehe

i dunno. i think it's a really cool idea and it looks good on the rifle there

do the numbers change or is it always at 750? if it's static, just blank out a couple of lines until it's not readable. say it's huttese or somethin

I have the 750 (earth#s) and in Mando, Heres a refrence of the 2. I personaly think the Earth #s one looks a bit better and more technological like on the caseless ammo rifles in Aliens, heres the 2 side-by-side and see what you think.
And yes it stays at 750.
(my sister deleted my pics of it w/earth digits >.<

Wondering why you chose to backlight the LEDs instead of wiring them up.
If you didn't know how, I'd be happy to help out in the future if need be.

Edit: Revised phrasing

Guys, why are we picking someone apart on a tiny little part of the costume?

As others have stated, the Star Wars games have the ammo listed in earth numbers.  I believe even some of the plecter labs kits have the same thing.  One of my 501st RC friends has a Deece that has earth numbers on a display just like that.

It's possible that Dresdon doesn't know how to wire it up to display the numbers he wants.  It does require some techinical electronics skill that some do not have.  I personally don't know how to wire one up.  So instead of criticizing him about it, why not offer up some friendly advice on how he would wire it up instead?

Well, he already has it in a state that probably can't be wired up, but previous post edited to offer help.
My phrasing was not the best. Fixed now.
