There's a watergun replica of the Blade Runner blaster that's out there on ebay, runs about 40 bucks (though it seems the price is starting to go up) and I snagged one.  I was REALLY pleased with the quality, although there's a few issues with some undercut areas that are filled in - they're small and hard to spot, honestly.  That said, it's a fantastically accurate replica otherwise, and I'm more likely to get my hands on a new Ferrari than I am one of the Tomenosukes.  So I decided to customize this one.

The longer barrel came with it, originally bright orange plastic; I replaced the existing barrel to give it a bit more nose.  The original prop has a concentric-spike sort of thing at the front of the rifle receiver, I used a spare tank roadwheel for that.  There's also rear sights added to the top of it, the little bump midway through the receiver on top in the picture.  Lastly, there's a wide plate glued onto the bottom, puttied up to fill it in, and a small T-piece attached to it - it forms a rail mount for the Surefire light in the second picture.  It actually holds pretty well and locks into place!

It's not quite finished, I wanted to get a WIP shot of it to show the changes easier.  Next up is some more painting, going with a dark-iron look on the upper segments for that faint two-tone look.  We'll see how it turns out.
