Barn's Brace of Pistols.
« on: Dec 03, 2011, 09:05 PM »
Well, the plan is for a pair anyway, but just one to start with.

Its funny that everyone says 'oh its a Han Solo gun', no one ever knows its based of an actual weapon lol

I bought a bunch of these a few years back, just hadn't got around to doing anything with them yet. It did come with a barrel, but my children took care of that :P


Heres a rough plan of what i intend to do. Large barrel, small under barrel, then a thin site type thing along the top.



Where its at at the moment. I need all the adhesive to set (up to a week apparently) then bondo and sanding time.

Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

If we ever actually attend an event together (somewhat unlikely given the distance involved) remind me to buy you a cookie for using the term 'brace of _____' correctly. You'd be surprised how often that phrase is misused.

As to the actual gun and its proposed future twin, I'm semi-skeptical. Gigundo pistols of doom always seem like a good idea, but they often don't pan out well. I'm interested to see where you go with this one.

My huge verp pistol is made out of mostly wood, and it works just fine for me :), I suppose it just depends on preference, resilience, and strength to hold the darn thing lol.

Take a look at the naboo guardsmen's blasters as well as the brayar pistol. You will need to do a lot of work to make it look like more than a tube. Good start though, keep it coming.

Looks like someone did some early X-mas shopping for themselves.

Have a good one,

Lol, I love using that excuss as well.
Me:"But hunny there for the kids."
Her: "Really  >:(why did you buy three of them then?"
Me: "ah... cause... ah.. he tends to break things and I wanted extra's on hand ;D"

... yeah it never works, but then agian mine isn't as old as yours and he hasn't learned the art of distracting Mommy so I don't get in trouble :P

Have a good one,
Hagen
