Default Hedin's gun replica

Thanks to the superb photos of the original prop that Andy Hopkinson kindly posted, I have been able to cobble together this replica of Hedin's gun (referred to as an 'Impulse Laser' in the episode). It is made entirely from bits I already had, so didn't cost me anything!

Flipping 'eck, that's good, Kev! And we get a cheeky shot of "those tiles" too, that's made my weekend.

Oh, what did you end up using for those bits on the handgrip? Looks like you found the right bits ...

Thanks. Yep, I can't ever change those tiles now for copyright reasons. I ended up making those handle parts from scratch using plastruct L sections and thin strips for the ridges. Glad there were only 5 of them!
