Hello, everyone! Welcome to my latest project: a 1:1 scale replica of the Colonial Warrior Blaster from the Classic Battlestar Galactica. I know I shouldn't work on too many things at the same time but I thought this little project would be the perfect opportunity to get more familiar with SketchUp since I am still building my Landram with it. In addition, I had been looking for almost two years for a paper blaster and wondered why there was none available. The blaster is mainly based on official schematics which were scanned and traced. I also use various pictures from the show, production photos and images of the resin replica for reference. The model will be approximately 27 to 30 cm long and feature raised details (and if everything proceeds as planned: a working trigger and space for light and sound). I hope to get it ready before the next Cylon surprise attack occurs so that every fellow warrior and war daggit will get his/her own portable means of defense. But be aware: announce1 A blaster will not be effective during an orbital bombardment; in this case man your Viper immediately or just duck and cover. I am looking forward to your comments. I only wish my creation to be treated wisely, so please don't use it to rob your local bank or to shoot your neighbor's cat. And if you really encounter a Cylon, I urge you to try to talk to these fellows first (choose a suitable topic like "Is there really one true God?", or "Is your programming Windows compatible?"); you may shoot them anyway afterwards. Enjoy!
