Some lovely work, pity I never got started on mine.

Two things:  you know for all the rants on the topic of weapons by people from the UK...YOU PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO A REALLY COOL AIRSOFT GUN!   Grin
Airsoft review World War 1 MP-18 - EpicAirsoftHD - Episode 5
 Having used the real deal, that is a top notch reproduction, it's a shame I can't find any over here, except one from Japan that is way overpriced.  

Lastly:  A friend of mine loved my Nerf mod so he wanted me to do some work on his toy Uzi.  His one requirement was that it needed to still have the sound effects, so there was a lot that I could not do, but I went for it anyway.

This is my favorite part, but sadly I could not get it to expose more of the gear without cutting into the mechanism:

My customer loved it.  Originally he traded for it, but when I delivered it he wanted to give me money, but as he is a friend and doesn't have much of that I let my payment be the trade and the agreement to use it if I do any sort of an art show with Steampunk.

Amazing inspiring brilliant work by the entrants.

I had a crack at it with my sky blue 'silly cow' but was not near the mark on inventiveness or build quality.

So I pulled it apart after the competition and started again.

Here is where I am at so far, most doo dads attached, now down to paint detail and weathering.



Overall paint finish is rattle can chrome, with real brass parts added. I will do some copper and brass highlighting on the moulded parts, and then weather the whole thing with some graphite.

I assume the Bison is a much cheaper one of the Weta props? I saw it was £99, or is it cheaper elsewhere?

Ah, well - this was all part of a modding competition run on the Replica Prop Forum, for forum members.

Weta provided 'naked' Bisons (assembled but unpainted) for around $40 I think it was (I had Weta dollars from previous purchases with them so it brought my purchase cost down to $10).

There was a limited supply (around 200) and there were just over 50 entries into the competition, so there are still 150 naked Bisons hoofing about in the hands of modders - I suppose they might turn up on eBay cheap - but I think Weta could still have one or two in store if you contacted them.

Greetings all.
I haven’t posted in a couple of years so I had to re register and start again at “One”
Oh well,

Here are a couple of pics of some of my collection which allow me to “blend in” as it were.

  Now in order to brag, and keep in the spirit of the conversation without seeming a complete ass Wink

  A very good freind of mine, Doctor Tymenhopper tends to bring me along on some of his adventures. he has an Airship WITH a built in timemachine. He brings me along as his "Historical weapons" advisor. I've picked up a few souvineers over the years.
  What's interesting , is everywhere we go there always seems to be a lot of shooting, running away from something, running towards something, and scantily clad women, not that the last bothers me all that much mind you.

  If you have access to a time machine, Stay away from the Crusades, they are entirely too preoccupied with religion.

I Highly reccomend the Roman empire but DON"T DRINK THE WINE! It's hideous. And the Legionairies tend to be about as humorless as the palace Guard at Buckingham.

The 15th Century Tournament circuit is a lot of fun but make sure you're heavily armed.

The Pillaging, burning and looting I can understand but the foaming at the mouth is a bit disconcerting

Now this piece, I have NO Idea who, what, or when they are, let's just say the good doctor and I had a long and "animated" discussion following the "hey let's set the time machine to the distant future and see what happens" incident.  Roll Eyes

  Now to ask for some real advice,
I suppose as a weapons expert, I should probably begin constructing my own. here's some bits and pieces I've found in the shop, and I have access to much more. any ideas?
Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun?
Steam? Powder? Ray?

Thank you, I had assumed they had been sold cheaper. I may just enquire, they may be as good as to sell me one.

I think she has done an excellent job. The only thing that looks a little 'off' to me is the handle, a nice sloped handle made from wood might be a worth upgrade! As it stands, a brilliant first try.

Hey, all.
I just wanted to quickly share some of the guns I've been working on...

The first one was just a trial to experiment. It's designed for character use/stage use, so didn't need to be too neat. Thankfully, given it was the first!

Modelled by Captain Marici Roam of The Indefatigable.

The second is Roam's side arm, which when the trigger is pulled, the "battery" at the back (UV liquid) deactivates and the quartz crystal point becomes brighter. I don't know why.


The third is a popular and cheap one from plastic and metal parts (decorative scope) issued to all in the steam army in our little world here.


Hope you like'm. More to come in good time.

Actually, you can see two recent commissions here...
I apologise for the terrible video quality and presentation. I was suffering from a cold.

war toys.wmv


The choice of music comes from the customer asking for a "side arm" and I got a bit carried away making something around half a meter long. He loved it (if only for the UV laser sight).

You can also laugh at me coming down with the cold, advertising a couple of easy paint mods for rental at the recent Retrofuturists Ball, here..;

Made the video around 2330, so couldn't go all out Drill Sgt. as I wanted. Neighbours would have been less than enthused.

Great build!  I think that's an excellent first effort (it's an excellent effort for a seasoned builder as well).  Looks menacing, and when it lights up...I just feel the need to apologize, even if I don't know what I did wrong, just to make it stop.  

Weird.

Being a former laser jock, I've got to say that your gun looks a lot like a YAG-pumped dye laser, that is to say, just about right!

I was very impressed with that at the Asylum earlier in the month. I especially like how you used the camera flash and glow-in-the-dark liquid. Nice work!

Good evening ladies and gentlemen.  This is my first post, though I admit I’ve been a lurker since 2009.  I attended Dragon*Con that year and was impressed with all the wonderful brassy goodness that was represented by the steam punk crowd.

I’ve begun work on my wardrobe and gear for next year, and have been marveling over the craftsmanship of the weapons that have been displayed in this thread.  Building a couple of weapons is on my to-do list and you have all given me LOTS of ideas to consider.

Although I don’t have any of my own work to share at the moment, I wanted to share an idea that came to me while searching for appropriate items to re-purpose.  I was wandering down one of the aisles in Toys-R-Us when one of the gadgets in the kid’s tools sections caught my attention.

Take a look at the “Real Construction” nail gun when you get a chance.  (I’d post a link, but I can’t find any pictures of a decent size to show the detail.)  The idea behind the toy is that the person using the tool will drive a ‘nail’ by pushing down on a plunger.  Instead of a clip of nails which one would see in a real nail gun, six nails are loaded in a cylinder.  The user pulls a trigger, which rotates the cylinder and lines up a nail to be driven by the plunger.  Does this sound familiar?

The cylinder is impressively large, and fluted exactly like one on a revolver.  I’m tempted to purchase one of these things just to build a monster revolver.  Something on the order of the Pfeifer Zeliska .600 Nitro Express Magnum.  Yeah, it’s that big.

Since both time and finances are preventing me from pulling the trigger on this idea, so to speak, I figured I’d share the idea to see if it had any merit.  Maybe someone else will be able to do some prototyping and mock up an appropriate mammoth-killer.
 
Just don’t be mad if I swipe the design for myself.   Grin

I'm working on the bandoliers and the blaster for a jawa costume, it's for a friend's son.

the blaster is about half done and coming right along.



I was going to just use a buzz bee hunter bolt action dart gun but I spend two days hitting just about every store I could think of to find one and they were all sold out. so I figure I might as well make a more accurate one.

the bandoliers are coming together fairly easily. I simply wrapped pieces of faux leather around cigarette package sized blocks of wood to make the pouches, with an upholstery tack to mimic the snap closure. they simply slide onto a home made sling or even a large leather belt.
I will get some pictures together of the pouches next.
