So now I'm going back on my Decision to laser cut some of the last parts . The Fins in the Rear Pointy Thing were going to be laser cut in acrylic but having reviewed the idea , I decided not to. The bottom of each fin has about a 45 degree bevel edge . You cant laser cut that edge, it would have to be done by hand . Also each fin has a rounded edge ,this also would be done by hand. I have almost finished shaping the parts and will mold and cast them in a clear blue resin ( Smooth On Clear Cast 204).
I'm now at the point of figuring out the color's for the Blaster . I want to cast all the parts up in a color similar to the final paint work . First up for the test was the Sight. The Final paint will be a Silver color so I wanted something close . What I did here was to tint the Resin with black and dust the mold with a Nickle Powder . It had a good result but next I want to spay Mira Chrome into the mold.
The plan is to put lights ( glow ) in the Cell. I will attempt to put a magnetic switch in the Cell that will trigger it on when it's placed near the Blaster . This will be tricky because of the lack of space in the caps.
