    Hi everyone. I have been lurking on here for quite some time and this is my first post.

    I am working on a replica of the Particle Magnum blaster used by Ronon Dex in Stargate: Atlantis. It will be made mostly from foam and thin plastic sheets. I hope to post some progress soon. I took my time working on the blueprints, trying to get them very accurate, because I couldn't find any online.

    So, I am looking for a bit of advice on how to make the indentations on the front of the blaster. I was thinking of making a straight recess and then filling in the endings using some kind of filler to shape the endings. This seems like a lot of work and any mistake would probably mean starting over on the part. Does anyone have an idea on how to do this differently? Thanks, I would appreciate any help and input. :)

    A router bit would do it all for you.

    Thank you, I never used those bits before, but I will give it a shot. It might be tricky to find one that is similar enough in size to use. Though I guess if it is smaller, I could do it in a few passes and it should turn out ok.

    Thanks, I am currently working on the main body and I will have some photos to post later this week, hopefully. :)
    I have considered it. I will see how it turns out first and maybe work on refining it before I think about molding it.

    So, I am posting two photos taken last week. I had a bit of a problem with the pvc pipe curving slightly, but I mostly fixed it. Now I am doing details on the main body, such as the sloping sides from the thicker area above the trigger. Once that is done, I will do another layer or two of resin and make the inside cutouts for the wiring and LEDs. The grip sides have now been primed and I will post them as soon as they are painted. :)

    Hi! When You have marked out the slots ,using the correct sized drill bit make a hole each end of the slot and then cut two straight lines to connect them. This will save using a router.There used to be a kit for that weapon on E-Bay.

    I saw that I actually sent a email I'm interested in the electronics if you'd are willing to sell some of the components I'm actually planning on doing a complete version on the mill and I wanted some electronics on the one I've made the chamber removes and powers up but I'm very interested in sound and what not
