very nice! i somehow have the feeling it would look better when a little...I don't know how to descrube this.... well...longer. it seems so short and thick now, still reminds one of a drill, I'd be afraid.

The shape of this drill is so perfect as a ray gun as is, that I really wanted to add only as less as possible - actually I would prefer to add nothing at all, in order to preserve the purity of the form. Here I have tried to meet it halfway. That's also why I haven't touched the aged original finish. This drill, without any modification, is already very close to the Hubley Atomic Disintegrator (http://www.authentichistory.com/1946-1960/4-cwhomefront/4-atomicculture/Hubley_Atomic_Disintegrator_ver1_view1.jpg).

I guess there is a dozen of solutions for a drill like this, depending on personal tastes.

Exactly, I have told myself the same thing a couple of days ago. I only started in the middle of this year with a small idea "if they can, I can" and with several very simple "conversions", especially in order to try my hand with the painting I had known strictly nothing about :



And then, one thing leading to another…

It will complement well my small Weta wall exhibition (this is no advertising spot, but I am fond of their creations)  Wink :
