Has anyone ever produced copies of the red and gold butt plate from the Star Trek Assault Phaser??

I have just bought a resin phaser and wanted to put one on the base??



It is the red and gold image in the above pic.

I believe they are red and silver- anyway, good question. I'd like to find some as well.
Anyone?

Bump. I'm interested as well. Does this sound like something RACprops could do for us and $$?

I'd be in for one of these. I guess I'll have to build mine since MR crapped out on these.

There was a run of these years ago. They were brass plates, painted with red, then etched I believe. VERY nice. I only have the 1 left on my Miarecki.

I still have one of the ID tags from that run, too. They were made from red vinyl on brass.

There will be another run coming in the near future, along with a possible metal parts run as well.

That would be sweet. Will there be details around here somewhere?

The original ones were the same type of plastic that was used for signage in the original series. A color layered over white, with the engraving cut through the color to reveal the white.
They were all individually numbered.

If I remember correctly, the originals were all engraved aluminum and had different numbers.

Coyle mentioned something about making these phasers for Roddenberry.com sometime in the future.

Email him and ask.

They were actually acid etched magnesium. They did have different numbers. The logic being that the prop master as well as paramount could keep track of them.

This is an original

Interesting information. I think a lot of the replicas have utilized brass as the base. Where did you get your information?
