*wild, loud and uproarious applause*

Bravo sir. Utterly beautiful.

Make it as a kit for self assembly and I shall purchase one, no, TWO! One for me, one for the beloved.

Fantastic stuff.

Gosh! Like most Brits, I really don't know how to respond to praise, so I'll just say a slightly embarrassed 'Thank You'!  Embarrassed

Well, in that case I'll be careful not to praise you.   Wink

That is one stupendously ugly raygun!  In fact, it's SO ugly, I'm feeling the need to confiscate it and lock it up in my private collection hide it in an underground vault forever, so as to save mankind from the sight of it.   My preciousssss...my preciousssssss....

Yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.   Cheesy

Well what I really mean is where did you learn to do this? Hobby or Work?

It's my impression that the good Döktor does precisely this for a living. That he also constructs such wonders as the Space Helmet in his spare time tells me that he does not consider it "work."

As a professional prop builder, my hat (and possibly even part of the noggin it rests upon) is OFF TO YOU!!

That's one stylin' piece of hardware... and most definitely DIFFERENT than other pieces attempting the same styling.  Excellent design, sir.  My jealousy knows no bounds!

Excellent work as always!

I am curious, though, was it the basis for Captain Bliss' weapon or based on it?

Nicely done  Smiley

Oh no, I did wonder how soon someone would recognise it, and you won the prize!* Smiley


As for 'shtum', it's a nice WW2 word meaning 'shush'! Nothing to do do with self polution at all!


* the prize is non negotiable, and consists of the definition of the word 'shtum'.
