I'm in the process of building my Endor Leia, and decided to take the easy to acquire Rubie's toy Leia blaster from and modify it to match the Endor blaster as closely as I can (not going for approval, so prefect accuracy isn't a factor for me). I've taken a hacksaw and some sandpaper to it, and am almost ready to put it all back together, but wondering what glue to use? Any tips and advice from those who've modified blasters or something similar?

Thanks!

I'd really just look at the this to that website for glue advice. Smile Usually universal glue works fine for plastics.

We modified the Rubies blaster also. You can see the exact items we used in my build thread. If memory serves, we used Super Glue and it worked really well. Almost a year and a half later and it still looks great.
