RtS Perceptor's Cannon Replacement

I have not liked Perceptor's cannon as well as some other things, so here's a quick how-to for a replacement:

You'll need the following:

  • a cheap plastic pen
  • one (1) LED
  • two (2) small batteries (the button things)
  • some Duck-paper to combine the batteries
  • hot glue
  • a cap to cover the batteries
  • some very thin paper to prevent the LED to be turned on all the time

Unscrew the gun from Perceptor:


Cut a cheap plastic pen, [and] take out the chrome tip ([which] will be placed in the shoulder hole):


Use some Duck-paper to combine the batteries:


Place the LED into the tip of the pen with the batteries connected:


Glue the lower part of the batteries onto the pen:


Place cap over batteries

Use hot glue to connect the chromed tip of pen onto the pen[, and] use red to recolor the pen:


Have fun!


To prevent the LED from the batteries being powered all time, I've used a thin piece of plastic . . . under the cover (which is from a small lighter, you don't see):
