Hello everyone, first time poster, long time reader.
My Uncle Chuck (some call him WoodChuck) and I are attempting to make, from wood, a TOS Phaser rifle. We have dimentions, photos from every angle, and what not. I think the 3 Jewels on the one side and the mutli colored piece on the other side would be easy to find, but I'm having no luck with the back handle. It's a shovel handle from what I can tell but I cannot find anything like it anywhere. Amazon, ebay, google search, nothing has turned up at all. I was wondering if anyone here had built a hand made TOS Rifle, and if a substitution was needed for some of the parts, if they could give me a leg up on the situation.
Dunno if you can click on the link, but he made that for me 2 years ago from a photo, and me making hand gestures saying "bout this big by this big". The type 1 is held in place by magents and can be removed. It's just amazing what he can do, and I'm hoping I can help him make this rifle for me to display.
