Hey-
  Very Inspriring guns.   I finally decided to jump in and build a steampunk gun.  I make lots of things, but never worked with brass much.  So a Iearned a bunch of new skills and had a good time doing it.  Here's what I came up with:




It's built from candle holders and lamp parts.  There are LEDs behind marble finials (I was really pleased with how the light reflects from all the bubbles in the glass) and in the sight.

Now I'm trying to decide what to do next with all the leftover parts.

Thanks for looking.




This is quite gorgeous! Don't suppose you have any 'in process' shots? I like to see what the pieces looked like before they got molded into awesomeness=]

Nonsense dear boy, you should be more like me.
But look at you! You're shaking all over!
Shaking? You silly goose! I'm just doing the Watusi

Thanks for showing!  It's a rare treat to see one built from found objects that has the uniform finish and symmetry that suggests a production model weapon so believably.  Good show!

What's that sandwiched between the scales of the grip?

Hey-
  Thanks for all the comments, much appreciated.

  As for the few questions, no I didn't take any in process pictures.  I wish I had now, but at the time I started it was just a bunch of junk that I wasn't sure was going to amount to anything.  I will next time.

  Between the grips is just a 1/4 in piece of basswood.  I traced the grips, cut it out, then stained it as dark as I could in an attempt to match the stripes in the grips.  There are a couple filler pieces of basswood at the top behind the trigger guard where it mates with the main body of the gun.

   It was a fun project, and I most likely will make another gun with the parts I have left over.  With pics this time.

Thanks again

Newbie here. I'm a professional illustrator and it was more fun than I've had in years doing something in three dimesions. Here's my first gun. I'm not too tech savvy, hope this link to Flickr works. Comments/questions are welcome.

@ Swayback - excellent work. I just wish I had decent workshop facilities to be able to pull somehting like that off ....

@ 1111art - nice piece too. Half the challenge with such projects is finding a toy gun that will not look like one when you have finished modding it. Nice paint finish too.

First post!
Any way, these are some sorta steampunkish Nerf guns I painted. All were done with acrylics, and handpainted.

Maverick, dry brushed copper and red in, with a red and black base coat.
Name: "Mercy"



Nerf Nitefinder's, Red, black and copper paintjob.
Name: "Demon twin pistols" or "Copperhead 1&2"



Any comments, critique, and questions are welcome.

I love those, they're fantastic!  Do you make them to sell (please please please!) :)

Wonderful work.

Here's a gun I've just recently finished. It's not so much Steampunked by itself, but I made it as an accessory to a post-apocalyptic Steampunk outfit. This is my first attempt at modding a toy gun.



A few more shots here - put them in spoilers so as not to dominate the page with these pics.  ;)

Oh, you are beautiful! No really, you are, you're gorgeous! Space-age clockwork, I love it, I've got chills! Listen, I mean this from the heart - and by the way, count those - it would be a crime, it would be an act of vandalism to disassemble you.

But that won't stop me.

Very nice work, Professor Rubbertoe! Would you mind elaborating on the light source in the tubes there? Are they filled with fluid?

Just as well we had our rayguns set to stun.

Otherwise you may have been 'blasted to sticky smithereens' by all of these.

Alas, there are no fluids in my rayguns. There was an experiment involving the BBBB raygun and fluids, but it kept leaving, um sticky messes everywhere. Ahem. The tubes are made of hand-cast resin with green LED's in them. There is a full spec of each gun describing all the materials used if you click on the individual pictures on the 'rayguns' heading on the website, check it out;

Reminds me of the Eddie Izard bit on phaser settings,  of course you would need quite a big gun to get a 'blasted to sticky smithereens' setting on the selector switch.
