My son is soon to open his own Tattoo Parlour, after working as a guest for others, he is spreading his wings, and going it alone!.

He shares a love of all things Gothic and Steampunk, and has asked me to produce some props for sale, and to decorate, the new premises.

I was lucky enough to come across a joblot of Vintage replica Flintlocks, so it begins...

First up, 'The Howler'

The theory being, that the air pressure produced from the firing of the weapon is harvested and used to produce a 'Howl' from the horn.

Secondly, 'The Snipe'

More of a Ray Gun look to this one, just a little more elegant than the previous monster.

I've another three still to modify, and may have just found another source of these older replicas.

I am also working on several trinket boxes in a similar style, I'll post some pics when completed, meanwhile,
here's a teaser or two....

Nice start.  Should make for a great look in your son's shop.  Looking forward to seeing more.

That's double 'cool'.

Love the howler particularly.  Did you carve the stock or find it that way?

Thanks, the stock appears to have been decorated using a steam pressure former, all I did was add the black low lights, in order to highlight the details as it were.
The little horn can also be blown using the pipe!
