Please post pictures during various stages of construction, they are often more beneficial to us that the completd photos as we get to learn how to do stuff.

Here it is, 98% done. After running about the house with it and tormenting my son with it for a bit, I decided to forgo the bottle as it adds too much weight. Instead I'm looking into taking apart one of those UV pens and putting the light behind a glow in the dark marble I have and plugging the back hole with that.

This was my first weapon modification. I am new to SP so please excuse my simplicity. I also didn't have much time, I had to do this in a couple of hours since I had to educate my self in the art of Calculus, Computer Architectonics and Mechanics in order to make my time in college worthwhile.

I spotted one of these last week. Made by hap-p-kid. Its a kind of knife becoming pistol. With light and sound effects.


I've just finished a basecoat of copper, given it a bit of a worn/burnt look and now looking to paint some of it's features and punk it. Will post final result.

I'm thinking some kind of single shot bowie electo-knife.  Cheesy


Finally scored one of these on ebay, $6 shipped!

Well I have a couple guns I think I'll share with you fine folks.


First off is my first steampunk project, fairly ordinary modded maverick

Next is my first real build:

Not really sure what to call it yet but my general idea is that it functions via steam or compressed air.
Also really sorry for the horrid pictures, my camera is incredibly adverse to anything even remotely reflective with the flash on, and with the flash off it all looks like the pictures were taken in a vat of Earl Grey. Once i get my hands on a better camera I'll put up some better shots.

Nice. It looks much better than the Maverik, are you going to make a holster for it?

My dear Fellows,

For those of you interested, I thought I'd give a little review of this unique weapon. Like I said, I got it for $6 total off of Ebay. First, a link to an image:

http://direct.asda.com/PTU-Sword/000765759,default,pd.html

Mine came in different colors. The main part is a darker red. I don't have exact measurements, but I'd say its around 16 inches long (when in "short sword" mode). The grip fits nicely in my hand - I have about average sized hands (for an adult). It actually has a nice "weight" to it. It doesn't feel flimsy. One could brain someone with it well enough.

I must say, I find the pistol mode very fetching. Very sleek. Kind of Power Ranger like (obviously it is patterned on something like that). Not very steampunky, but still nice. The angle of the grip to the barrel is about 45 degrees. Very natural looking and comfortable in the hand.

The sword mode is cool as well. It looks solid as you can see. I can imagine shooting the barbarian hordes as they rush my position, then quickly snapping to sword mode to fend them off.

The transforming action is spring-loaded from pistol-to-dagger mode. Just push the button (orange, on the side of the gun above the grip in the circular thing) and it pops into sword mode. The spring feels strong - not weak at all, tho I'm not sure how long that will last thru use. Unfortunately, that button is a bit hard to reach with the thumb (at least, with my thumb) for the right handed. I'm not sure how the left handed would press the button. It does positively lock into the sword mode. But if you swing it hard enough it'll jiggle a bit. To go back to pistol mode, you have to manually do it while pressing the button again (I suppose if you swung it  hard enough the right way it would do it too).

One thing that is not shown in the picture is that the forward dark blue part (with the orange barrel part and yellow thing on top) actually can pop-up and slightly back (via the orange button on the side of the light blue part below it). It reveals another barrel (clear, like the blade, it lights up) plus some other detail. I'm not sure if I like the pistol mode with this up. It looks bulkier, kind of like a WH40k plasma pistol so I do like it a bit. The light that comes out of the hidden barrel is brighter when the light is activated (the orange barrel is harder to light thru, I guess) - I can see the light spot on a wall about 30 feet away in a semi dark room. I can't with the blue part down.

The unit is electronic, of course. You pull the trigger and you get sounds (a variety) and lights (a variety of patterns, solid and flashing). If you hold the trigger it cycles thru them. Interestingly, in sword mode you do get a sort of "swoosh, clang" sound, tho since the blade lights up, I expected more of a lightsaber-like sound. The speaker is on that black ribbed part, fairly well hidden. It is a bit loud (as toy sounds tend to be). One thing I immensely dislike: one of the sounds is an "explosion" sound in gun mode that occurs after several shooting sounds (a star wars blaster my son has does the same thing). I can provide my own "kablooie" sounds, thank you very much. It interrupts my ability to lay down a long stream of suppressing fire on the enemy.

Finally, for you modders: the plastic does not seem brittle, it seems solid. I can't quite figure out how to take it apart yet without losing how the spring action works, but I haven't tried very hard either. There isn't much in the way that needs be scraped off (the manf logo is on the side). It seems fairly well detailed to pick out with just paint.

I hope this helps.

I started on a little silver ray gun for the good lady wife, can't have my dearest strolling around Steampunk Melbourne unprotected from ne'er do wells and such like.



I have used a spray paint gun handle, a curtain rod end finial and a small sprinkler rose, which does make what I have built look just like a garden hose nozzle!

I am now hunting for an old valve with a 17mm diameter base (or less), so I can glue it into the back.

I don't normally like assemblage-based ray guns but this one makes my day.  Hooray for simple elegance!

This is originally my Vampire Hunting Gun Kit but after some thought, the 1851 Colt Navy Revolvers will fit perfect for my Steampunk Kit.

The reason they fit so well? They are cologne bottles and the handle is glass that used to be full of cologne. Which can now be explained as being a specially made gas canister that allows the pistol to fire gas propelled projectiles.

I also have a way to made more lead bullets that would have been used in that era, though I beleive mine are .50 and the 1851 fired .36.

I also own this sword, though my photo is no where near as clear as this one.

Would this fit as a Steampunk style dagger on a belt? Ornate in nature, lethal in use?

my newest addition. I'm not even sure I want to change anything with it. It looks pretty nice as is, might add some cogs and gears and other baubles though.

I have recently finished another minor prop gun project, and while I want to show it off, it doesn't quite deserve its own thread. Under the assumption that I am not the only one in this predicament, I have created a thread for anyone who wishes to flaunt their weaponry.

On that note: this is Chekhov, the newest darling in my personal arsenal, a rotary dial gun.




Here a water pistol i painted and added a clock face to.


You can see more of it here.

I agree that it could use a bit of finishing but I must say that it is a most impressive repeating firearm and I say "Huzzah!" as it is indeed a rip snorting peice of armament which I would like to have in our armoury!

Well done!

Funny - but the line 'is this an armour piercing rapid fire heavy machine gun I see before me' doesn't ring any bells.

Lovely prop work.
