I've embarked on a project to design a gun with a tentative view to making moulds and casting the finished item in resin. Having great trouble in both visualising or drawing what I want I have to resort to building and trial and error. The work's been done quickly so a bit rough and ready using scraps as usual

Still at the prototype model stage, not happy with the design yet, quite a few ideas to try.

That's really cool! An idea might be to change the grip angle and/or style to something like a Luger or a C96.

The grips the only part I'm happy with  Grin that was the starting point.

I do like the tripple-barelled version, but a version where you could have interchangebale barrels would be really really nice. Maybe in a nice presentation case with the barrels nicely lined up ready for use?

I also like more from that three-barreled version. Colour scheme and the grips look very nice, but i would like that even more with buffier side plates.

For example traditional Derringers have very fat grips and i'm big fan of that style.

The Thompson Contender is a real gun with interchangeable barrels for different calibers and purposes. A fantasy gun with varied barrels  (ray gun, coil gun, pepperbox, etc.) Is an interesting idea.

Mklll. I like this a lot, can't say it's what I had in mind because I only had vague ideas. Still a crude model but I'll hopefully finish it when the design's right. If I'm not happy by MkX I'll give up  Grin

It looks like it could be a pop-gun, with that plunger on the back of it.

True. It's a 22mm calibre if anyone's wondering  Grin

any chance of a ruler or hand next to them to get a feel for their size?

Helpful seeing the hand.  The pistols are a little larger than I assumed, unless you have tiny hands and we don't want to go there. Grin

Last version, the project will have to be shelved for the time being. This is not my favourite one.

You could say This Latest Gun is a Signal Pistol for Steampunk Adventuring Parties. You'd Need something like that to Shoot a Signal Flare to Summon Help.

The gun needs a carrying case with spots for each of the different barrels. If your intention if to cast guns to sell, you could design inserts for a stock briefcase and cast them in foam epoxy for reduced weight.
