    Movie Style Real Ghostbusters Wand

    I'll just dump the final pictures here now. Stickers added. Still a bit more to do, but cosmetically, this is pretty much there.

    Movie Style Real Ghostbusters Wand

    Update time! Got a few things knocked off the list. I painted the LED pilot light housing red. Used Citadel transparent red airbrush paint and it worked perfectly. I also commissioned a friend of mine to 3D print some Legris banjo fittings and a trigger tip. These were sanded and then...

    Movie Style Real Ghostbusters Wand

    Only a small update for today. I bought a coiled aux cable at the local dollar store and drilled a couple holes in the wand. I cut the ends off the Aux cable and fed it into the holes wrapping the cable around the front grip. This will eventually be held down with a zip tie but I think it looks...

    Movie Style Real Ghostbusters Wand

    So this is a project that started about a year ago when I started designing the plans and buying parts but it never really gained much ground until recently. The plans were initially done in AutoCAD where I a top look for the overall wand and then some elevations of the central box so I could...

    Well crap. I had no idea they went out of business. That sucks. Thanks for the info.

    Rubie's ANH Leia Blaster--- Anyone seen this yet?

    Anyone know where these can be bought online now? They seem like they've disappeared entirely.

    When it comes to research what exactly are you looking for? Or was that outlined earlier in the thread?

    Tobin's Spirit Guide! (RESEARCH SIGN-UP POST 364!)

    I don't know how helpful it would be but back in the early 90's there was a series of books written for Dungeons and Dragons, specifically for their Ravenloft campaign setting, called the Van Richten guides. They're a wealth of knowledge for supernatural creatures. The books in the original...

    Rubies Han Solo Blaster

    I couldn't resist taking off the masking tape and I'm super pleased with how it's turning out. Still gotta sand down those blobby areas but I'm almost ready to start weathering and detailing this thing!

    Rubies Han Solo Blaster

    Darn, I wish I had known that before I sprayed on the black. I'll have to figure something out.

    Rubies Han Solo Blaster

    Nope, definitely going to try my hand at weathering it. Gonna do a wash over the flash hider once I get the black finished to bring out a carbon scored look. As for the grip, I'm not sure what I'm gonna do. At the very least I might get a couple browns and dry brush a light brown and a dark...

    Rubies Han Solo Blaster

    So I finally got around to masking the blaster off. Not exactly easy given how smooshed everything is together at the flash hider part. Now today I finally got the first coat of black on there, but I kinda screwed up and it came out a little blobby on the bottom, back of the grip and eye...

    Rubies Han Solo Blaster

    So a few years back, I was at Disney world and I bought the Hasbro Han Solo blaster thinking I was gonna paint it to make it look like the one in the movie. Unfortunately I didn't have any sort of experience doing anything like that before and I never did finish it. There are two reasons...
