So I'm internally debating what too intergrate into the front of my longshot and one thing that would really help is if I had scaled picutres of every blaster so I could compare sizes and shapes to see what would intergrate well. Then i thought it might be a good rescource for others too use for the same purpose, so I'm asking all of you to please mesure your blasters length and post it here along with the name of the blaster, for the sake of consistency each blaster should be mesured in its entirety.


Once I have mesurements the idea is to make them into a rescource in steps:

  1. Acquire pictures of each blaster and use the mesurements to put each image into an equal scale so they can be accurately compared.
  2. Make a line of art of each scaled blaster on gimp for clearer viewing
  3. Make somethign simple on gamemaker that allows parts to be moved around so you can directly see how they would look when combined
  4. Work out the placements of vital internals and add an internal viewing mode to make it easy too see how far you can cutdown a blaster to integrate it.

Bad grammar, good idea. Really good idea. Give this Brit a pint.


If I were at home, I'd get started on this project. 


Good luck with this project, and I hope this community is friendly enough to collaborate.

My collection certainly isn't as extensive as some but ill do what I can.

 This sounds like a great idea.

Sure, once I'm home on Friday/Saturday. Will upload data in centimeters and inches. Might be off by a little bit because I don't have calipers, so I'm using a tape measure.
