Ahoi
Some raygun collector HAD to buy something from me. After describing what he liked, I came up with this:


Full metal, white LED in the barrel (triggered by the red trigger ring there), blue LEDs in the dome on the side, to make it more vibrant.
Classic paintjob, brass and copper parts round off that vintage toy look.

What do you guys think?

Not bad, not bad at all - very swish. Do you really need such a large foresight, must be a beast to pull out of a holster! Cheesy The back sight button would, I think, be more useful at the front, and the large one at the back.

Very nice - the blue, grey and black colour scheme is a refreshing alternative to the usual Steampunk palette and really complements the pleasingly chunky styling. Another triumph!

Yours,
Miranda.

Thank you mam.
The turquise is very retro lookin...like a classic cadillac. He asked for some color, so I had to paint it fancier than usual.
Was afraid the revolver style would not work with that color. But it kinda does.

The chunkyness is vaguely reminiscent of Rick Deckard's blaster gun.

Yeah, tiny bit...totally unintentional though. The grip is taken from something else I made, the front from another one I have made.
The blade runner revolver never really worked for me :p needed more SciFi-Hmpf!

It was an overly simplistic gun, made from rifle parts and a handgun. Two little LEDs on the side.

Exactly. My problem with it was exactly that: You were able to see what its made from ^^ just like his blaster in Star Wars. Maybe its Fords fault Cheesy
I forgot the name of the SciFi movie...it was not in theaters I think. And not really TOP notch. Watchable...BUT the weapons: Made by Weta! They really
come up with some cool shit.

Update:
Added a little heatsink, because he saw that on one of my others and wanted that on there.
Also added: The stand
