Ayo! I had a few minutes waiting for paint to dry, and I got a bit carried away. I needed to convert a blaster, so I thought I would take pictures of the process and share with the class. This is the first attempt, and I think it came out pretty good for being done so fast and easy.

The items you will need are an Exacto Knife, Glue, a Shredder and a Blast Pistol.

Cut the ammo bit off. This was a clean, easy cut to make.

Next, carefully cut the end of the Shredder. The bit that goes under the barrel is very fragile, it took me a second attempt to not completely snap it. Even then, I had to glue it back together because I put a small amount of pressure on it.

Next, cut the barrel off the Blast Pistol.

Glue the barrel onto the Shredder, and you're done! Wasn't that easy? You've probably got a ton of these laying around too.

Have Fun, and let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

I know I'm a very visual person, and I decided to take some while making this so I could post it. Hopefully it helps some new people out.

This teacher gives you an A+ study

Good stuff as always Dez! I did the same thing with Reaver Blaster parts. Kinda wish that I had gone your route so that my second unit(someday) would match better. (I'm not going to scrounge up another 4 Reaver Blasters!)

This Sir, was a bit of Genius. Saves so much in casting and/or bits buying (especially since Blaster's are expensive, since we all need them in larger quantities....).

Well done Sir!

I'll expect 50% of forcast blaster purchases deposited into my Swiss bank account. That chalet on the Rhine won't pay for itself!

Glad I could help Wink
