    Belongs in the Conversion forum, not in Painting. Moving it for you.

    thanks for moving it to the right section...and thanks for the replies so far. But the model is medal well that matter in how to change because it came pre-attached to the body.

    Shouldn't be too hard to carefully saw or chop off the top of the plamsa pistol (leaving the hand, handle, and trigger guard), file it flat, then cut the handle and trigger guard off a plastic or metal bolt pistol hand, file THAT flat, and glue the bolt pistol top to the model's waiting hand, likely with a bit of putty to smooth out the edge.

    All you really have to modify is the muzzle and cartridge. If it looks weird you can claim it was mastercrafted.

    Best thing I'd suggest is getting hold of a hand with a bolt pistol, clipping off the hand with the plasma pistol, then filing it smooth then using superglue to glur on the Bolt pistol hand. That's what I did for my chaplain8Y

    Either one of these is the easiest way to go.
    Though the pistol is already attached to the body, its in a fairly good position to be cut off, so the work should be simple.

    Cut off the whole hand, not the pistol.

    I don't know what the figure you are working on looks like, so this is just idle speculation on my part, but as a rule, it looks better if you clip off an entire weapon and hand and replace it with another weapon and hand. The wrist makes a good surface for glue, and is even stronger if you pin it. Check around this forum for hints on how to drill and pin a joint. If you cut a pistol or blade from a hand and try to glue a new weapon on that hand, you run the risk of it looking slightly wonky. Cutting at the wrist is more likely to give you a better looking hand, since it was moulded that way.
