Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Modding 'Beam' qns

This may work but I don't know how well the results will be because I do not know the thickness you are trying for.  Anyway find some clear acrilic glass the thickness you need.  Then remove the blade from the weapon.  Lay the blade on some paper/ thin plasitcard and trace the outline.  Transfer the design to the clear acrilic glass and cut.  Presto there is your beam blade.  Simply color accordingly and attach.   *WARNING*  If you are useing modeling glue to join the two, make sure you use a respirator as the plastic may give off harmful vapors causeing  dizzyness, watering eyes, nausea, headache or possibly worse side effects.  I learned this the hard way. Better safe than sorry.  Anyway tell us how you finally do it and how it turns out.

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Raised Lettering?

I  know I am replying long after this has been discussed but I was once told that some people photo etch letters.  Seeing how some of you photo etch your own things or know some one who does I don't see why you couldn't get the words you want etched and go from there.  Never thought about useing the letters on a sprue though it would be useful..
