I don't think I've seen anyone modify many Rebelle blasters, and that's kind of a bummer. A lot of those look pretty sweet! Like, look at the Secret Shot.
Sure, it's a little handbag thing, but try and have some vision.
See? That's more like it!

I've been into Tsutomu Nihei lately (BLAME!, Biomega, etc), so that's where the logo and general style comes from. He seems to have a thing for boxy weapons with surprising firepower, so it seemed like an obvious choice.
It wasn't all smooth sailing, though. I originally meant to try some sponged-on stripe deal, but...
Wait, crap, that isn't right, why is this happening.
In retrospect, I really should've hit the whole thing with sandpaper to make the paint stick better. But in the meantime, I had some blank label paper I was already using for decals, so I got the idea to just freehand the contour lines instead. Not an ideal solution, but it works for now.
And no internal mods at this point, but I'm not entirely sure it needs any. Right out of the box, it gets decent range for something so small. I made this before I had access to a 3D printer, so now there might be more touches in its future. Rails, a better handle, a better release knob, who knows?
Not the best by any measure, but I'm still pleased as hell.
