Stargate Kull Disruptor - Intro

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

Another prop build, this time from Stargate SG-1.

This project arose from theRPF's annual secret santa gift exchange.
Upon finding out that my recipient also liked Stargate I started researching some props, obviously there are a lot of Zat's and other Jaffa costume pieces. But I wanted something that hadn't been done to death and that would be relatively simple. 

That's when I stumbled upon the Kull Disruptor.

Stargate SG-1 8x06 'Avatar'

It's a neat little attachment that clips onto the teams' weapons. Developed by the SGC to take down Anubis' Kull Warriors, it features heavily in the episode 'Avatar' (8x06) but pops up elsewhere too.

It's nice and small, recognisable from Stargate, (even if you don't know exactly what it is) and I reckoned it should be simple enough :s .

Scratch Build

Firstly I set about drawing up some good schematics to work from.

Then I just printed out some templates and began to cut pieces out of plasticard, with a scalpel.

These are all cut from 1mm plastic, fairly easy, if a bit tedious.
These plastic pieces fit together to form a cross section of the piece. 
It was filled with Bondo to give it mass and then the shape was rounded out with various files and sanding sticks.

The final step was carving the lines into it with a Dremel.

Unfortunately I seem to have forgotten to take pictures during most of the build up of this piece. However you can still see the remnants of the plasticard in there.

The back part is flat to accommodate the power cell and magazine.
The building of which will be in the next post.
