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.
 



Why don't you save one of the pistols for shooting holy water?

Agreed MagnaRyu - I've been eyeing off one of those airsoft "muskets" for a while but sadly we are precluded from importing such dangerous items here in the land of Oz. :'(  They have more than a hint of Bladerunner about them.  Very nice!

What I have recently laid eyes on down under is the Nerf Barrel-break which is by far the most 'period' looking nerf around.

Toys-r-us are advertising a nerf sale so I think i may have a shot at steaming one up sometime soon.

PS - thanks for the tips on lanyards! - I got some great cast iron curtain rings and will attempt to drill a nut this week - I'll post next creation soon
cheers



I was just looking in the threads to see if anyone had done a repaint on this yet. Nothing so far so I will post mine. Hope you enjoy.

Nice job Guyver!
They certainly come up well with a paint job...particularly one as nice as that exhibited!
Sadly I missed out on them - apart from the first one I saw in Toys-r-us I've not seen another here in Oz.  I guess most kids prefer the new battery semi-autos.  Not nearly so classy of course!

Maduncle, that weta comp looks interesting - best part is if you come up with something you're happy with, you've already won!

My latest, half built project is a blunderbus that fires silly string - has anyone worked with this sort of 'ammunition' before?

 Yes, keep it away from birthday cakes and people lighting up their ciggies.

I just picked up a few cans of "Non-flamable Silly String" launcher from my local $2 store - still not keen to launch it near a naked flame!  I'm using the concept but making something a little more solid and steamy!


I also like the Kid designs version that the US military is using to disable IADs.  It's got some steamy potential!



Certainly makes for an interesting projectile!  I do a bit of face-painting at friends and family's childrens birthday parties and reckon a silly string blunderbus would go well with the charactor I'm developing.  I'm also thinking the pnumatic nerf blaster I have in mind could be converted to launch a bit of confetti.

Good evening to all. I've got a picture of the Raygun I'm working on in another thread but I though I'd put it in the right place.
I've still got a lot of work to do on it, some more brass components, fitting the battery in the grip and more electronics and then staining and lacquering but this is the overall look. So far bending the rods and cutting the brass tubes at the front in half and fitting has been the hardest part. Also all visible fixings will be changed to a more traditional type.
All the rods and the focus beam at the end will all light on the trigger pull when it's finished.





This is the etched grip inlay that will cover the battery housing, I'll be etching the other side later.


Thanks for looking.

Regards

Excellent work. Zero criticism here. Is that a modified light bulb in there? Also, what is the ghostly twisting "worm" made of? Looks great all around.

The rods are clear acrylic bent to shape. The central part is a test tube cut down to length with an acrylic rod scored on the lathe and then spiraled to shape using a hot air gun. The other spiral is twisted copper wire. It's lit by an led behind the rod. When finished it will have leds behind all the rods to illuminate them.

Well - there's the GOTY (Gun Of The Year) already!

Superb work - well though out design, unique style, clever use of acrylic, masterful execution and materials handling!

Please let be begin with the comment quickordead has done a magnificent job!  I am awestruck.
I have the beginnings of a raygun in the workshop but so far have only propped a Maverick... yes I can hear the shudders from all you Nerf haters but nonetheless this is my first Steampunk gun effort.

Any air pirates may note the RDC and quake with appropriate angst.

Good job Capt. I love the holster, that's on my list to do, I've got to work out how to fit this in one first.

Well I completed the electronics today. I drilled out the grip and slid the battery in, the standard 9v battery cap just pushes on top. I used a 150ohm resistor for each led and wired them in parallel. The micro switch was put in line on the positive wire form the battery. It has an arm with a roller on the end and this was fixed behind the trigger arm which in turn is sprung to give pressure and return.

Me holding it gives some idea of scale aswell.

Very Nice Captain! I like the gun.

Not sure why so much Hostility is aimed at Nerf modders. I think a redone Nerf Gun looks great!

Yes, yes I did.

But, as with much in this life, all is not quite what it seems.
The tubing is made from a flexible 'plastozote' type foam.
It's jolly useful stuff. cuts easily, glues well, takes paint nicely.
And is cheap when you buy it as a pack of 'Twistee Hair Rollers' from your local Poundshop.
The vertical line on the second tier up is where two lengths are joined together. I'm going to hide it with a totally superfluous riveted patch to make it look 'bashed about'. (I like 'bashed about'.)
I also like the....(?).... aspect of steampunk doodads. Allows one the freedom to make up your own stories inside your head.

Love the look of the perspex rod, I just got given a length for my WIP musical instrument, which is starting to look more like a raygun every day, now I have a better idea of how it looks... Er...Brilliant...

Congratulations on your patience bending them all to the same curves, I think I would fill a swear box trying that. Roll Eyes
