Filigree Handgun

Post  IrishmanErrant on Tue Sep 30, 2008 6:06 am

Hi there sparegoggles, I'm new to the scene, and this is my first post, as well as my first attempt at steampunk modifications, so wish me luck.

I'm not very skilled at contraptioneering, so i figured i'd try my hand with brass paint.

Before:

After:


What do you think?
PS, any tips on embedding images, I can't seem to work it ^_^

Nice paintwork. Shame it is on such a weapon, but it makes for good practice. As for images, put at the end.

thanks, it was really just to try out the technique, and the gun was cheap. oh, the gun is arisoft, in case it wasn't apparent.

That second image link isn't working. The URL actually points to an HTML page (okay, it's a PHP script, but you know what I mean) and PHPBB's img tags get fnsozglded if you try to point them at anything other than a bare image file.

Just for the record:

is rather nice work for a first effort; I suppose we can overlook the fact that it's a forbidden "modern" firearm just this once. (Actually, it looks like an M1911, which design-wise would get it in just under the wire, if you really want to stretch the point. Okay, I'm done now.)

aha, well, that makes some sense.
and you're right, it is a M1911.
I actually have a revolver i was wanting to try next, after getting some reviews on this work

While itis considered a 'modern' weapon, that's a bit of a stretch given it was a working prototype only 2+ years after the demise of Queen Victoria (1901) and won Army's multi-national pistol competition in 1907, which lead to the weapon's use in the USA as the standard armed forces sidearm. markf

Very nice.
I would have left most of the slide plain, but that's just me. I would very much like to see a revolver with this kind of work. Have you looked at the engravings on other guns for reference?

I have, and most real engravings tend to be flowers and vines, which i may try next
and, yes, a revolver is in the works, complete with roman-numeraled chambers for a steampunk ammo counter, as it were
