Stargate Kull Disruptor - Magazine & Finish

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

I had planned to make another one of these and document it better, but until then I figured it was best to have some pictures of the final piece up.

The final part to be built from plasticard was this magazine type piece, that holds the power cell.

After that was finished, I cast up a copy of everything, scavenged a weaver rail mount and set about painting.

The paint job was rushed and doesn't really have the proper depth, but with a few tips from veteran Zat painters I should be able to do better next time.

But for now I'm mostly happy with how the project turned out.
Still on the to do list are:

  • New paint job (got some suggestions and new paints ready)
  • Draw up circuit board for lights and mill with my CNC machine
  • Scavenge the perfect part for the clear plastic lens 
  • Remake the moulds for the main body, it has one or two shocking air bubbles.
  • Mill a new powercell out of brass. (Even a small bit of solid brass is prohibitively expensive so this one is unlikely)
If I can manage just 3 of those things I'll have a really nice piece.
