Big, Bad, Bruiser B.A.R.T.
This bruiser was modified by adding a plastic cup
on top and painting it flat black. A circular mask was first placed over
the area of the flashing LED so that it could be seen while firing. On
top of the cup, the top part of a STAR WARS (tm) droid was placed, and
various other pieces from action figures were placed to add texture. To
top it off, stick on decals from various sources were placed to give it
a realistic, battle machine look. It really looks impressive as it scurries
around. My next project would be to increase the timing range. If anyone
out there knows how to increase the range, please email me.
Just some of the boys that met in Seattle, Wa., recently.
Local authorities believe that rebuilting will begin
I need a bigger gun...
This blaster uses a Electronic Survivor Shot board
(mounted in the rear section) with a 10 Amp IRLZ24 Mosfet amplifier circuit
to drive a 600 mW OD50L (about $10 each) Infrared LED from OptoDiode Electronics
Inc. in California. There is also a LED hit and shot counter display
in the back of the gun that dims and lightens automatically depending on
surrounding light allowing for more stealth at night. The gun was
modeled after a Warhammer plasma blaster and is made of 3" ABS tubing,
fiberglass covered 1/8" thick plywood and corregated sewage pipe. The gun
is powered by a 7.2V NiCad racing pack which can be recharged through a
port on the side of the gun. The 3" lens used is from a magnifying
glass made by Tasco with an infrared focal length of 10.5" and was purchased
at a Stamp Collecting shop. The gun has a range of about 1100ft and
required about 20 hours to build. This was my first long range gun.
Beware: Big long range guns are addicting!
New LC developments
Here is a picture of a modified Ex-D rifle.
I'm selling a kit to modifythe Ex-D like in the picture for $15 to generate
a range of 600ft to
800ft. (I don't want to say 800ft, even though
this was my range, since
others may build it wrong and get less range.)
I also have finished
models for $50 with front and back sensors.

Staten Island Battle Clans
I am in the process of forming clubs,
or clans for some private "lazer tag" action, Laser Challenge or Worlds of Wonder "Lazer Tag" compatible format. If you live on Staten Island, New York, or the general
area, have friends with the same interest, age 18 to 80 and would like to participate,
then email me. Game play will be in the form of scenario games, team play or outright eliminator
combat. Staten Island offers many outdoor wooded areas as well as "ancient structures" for EXTREME outdoor action. Please organize and e-mail me to set up your clan and battle dates.
