I'm glad and really proud to announce that myalphaquadrant is sharing the Cyber-Mecha's banner! Cyber-Mecha is a website, a blog, a forum and moreover a great source of news about scifi scale model building. I'm very glad to add partnerships with quality websites like that. Enjoy it!
In this new section I will publish some interesting articles from other bloggers. Today, I will start with the following one from the interesting blog of Luca Tempesta, talking about how to make a believable prop replica. Enjoy it!
Han Solo's DL-44 blaster
by Luca Tempesta
The blaster DL-44 series was especially designed to provide instant power to fire at a close range in clashes , at the cost of high consumption of energy and a limited number of shots available in the magazine.
Han Solo extensively modified his weapon:
For days I have dedicated myself to the construction of a new master for the Tardis, by using the same pieces that are usually used for assembly. The ultimate goal was to use such a master for producing a mold that allows me to build the Tardis in one piece .
I finally reached the finish line! The two molds that are seen in the background, behind the Tardis, allowed me to produce in a few hours two copies of the Tardis (those further to the right in the photo). The two molds still have very different characteristics. One is a single valve, the other is a double valve.
