I’m making a Battlestar Galactica blaster for a friend and decided to also include a stand.
(Please note, in these pictures, the Blaster is nowhere near finished. Please disregard its ratty appearance).
This is a Piece of Thick Clear Acrylic (PG), with the Battlestar Insignia etched into the backside so that the top is smooth and glossy. It’s got a standoff to hold a small metal plaque (also etched on the GF) and to support the front of the blaster. There’s also a little shape at the back to keep the butt of the gun from sliding off the back.
All this is laid on on top of a piece of Medium Black Acrylic (PG) to make the etched design pop.
Tonight, I’m experimenting with ways to bond all this together (Weld-On 3 and 4 will be tested) and, once done, I’ll add some little rubber feet to the bottom.
Hope you guys like it!
(PS: At what point do I stop being a “new user” and get to post more than one photo?!)
