Sci-Fi Blaster

This was my first blaster project, constructed in 2002.  Built with the same mentality as Han Solo's blaster from Star Wars, which was built upon a German Mauser C96 pistol from WWI; I chose to base this one on an American Colt Model 1911.  I began by taking apart a 1911 bb gun to harvest parts from the interior to used as detailing on the exterior, a scope, digital number display (similar to the one used for the pulse rifles in Aliens), and various parts form my parts bin completed the project.   A coat of flat black paint and a custom leg holster completed the project.
