I'm not a fan of the Klingon disruptor.  I'll buy one, but I won't be anticipating it.  The price looks a bit high, too.  Especially since it's not a "two for one" like the Federations phasers that have the removable P1's.  Maybe we'll get a Klingon comm out of this as well or a "P1" as seen in The Voyage Home.

I do, however, like that BOP.  Having the landing gear is a nice touch, too.  I hope the wings are able to move up and down as well.

What's happened to the TWOK comm??  The silence is deafening!

Whatever happened to the TWOK communicator that was supposed to be out in early 2010?  I haven't heard anything about it in ages.

Then I put Humpty-Dumpty back together again. Only problem I had what the red button. The several coats of paint made it a tight fit. So I took a nail file and took a couple swipes on each side of the trigger hole in the phaser body ... then it fit great. I also reattached the speaker to its proper home on the lower shell. Here's some final shots.

I wanted to some how do the power bar as well. I didn't want to paint it since it has a lot of indentations and that can get sloppy. I thought about trying to find red and green translucent tape but the ladies at Michael's say there's no such thing. Suggestions?

Next I glued the rubber grip to the top part of the handle. I have don't have anymore build pics because this is where I had a small problem and I couldn't cared less about pictures. So I was doing the buttons and I placed the rubber pad under the plate and glued the buttons on no problem. Once dry I went to glue the plate on. Well I must've had something on my thumbs (I'm guessing glue residue) because when I pressed on the plate it left marks all over the paint. Prior experiences have told me to just leave it alone otherwise it will probably get worse, especially when dealing with wet goopy glue. It's not horrible but I know it there. I guess now it more like a "battle used" phaser. Oh well, I guess it'll be a quirk that will make it unique, right? Still, it came out pretty nice.

Here are some final pictures.

....and the display.
