Imposed exercice : a variation on the theme of a steampunked Nerf-like gun.
Plastic, metal, wood, glass, leather.
Joining technique : two-part epoxy adhesive, mostly with various added built-in metal dowels (often simple screws) glued in smooth holes, in order to make the assembly stronger.

Beautiful, just beautiful!  Grin
Someone stuck that in my face I wouldn't know whether to be terrified or full of admiration for the beauty!

Thus, beautifully terrified ?
I find my Colt Army 1860 the most aesthetic revolver ever made (that's why I have bought it), but stuck in my face, no doubt I would definitely prefer to be fairly terrified.  Grin

Sorry for the errors, rudeness and stupidity. It's not me, this online translator. Really convenient?

Well! Even sighting device installed.

And the sight is more or less the only component that fits roughly to its initial function... (even if it has been added purely as a kind of steampunk attribute).
No gears, no rivets (I have no patience for it), so a bit of optics.  Smiley

I feel deeply and infinitely honored by the recognition from the steampunk community peers. May they have the same pleasure I had imagining, dreaming and creating the device.

I have finally found on the web some images of the original toy gun (as I took no photo of mine, bought at a flea market - shame on me) : Larami Super Soaker CPS 3000, made in 1997 (not that easy to find, it's already a "vintage" one) :
