Default 'Re-imagined' Stun-gun sketch

*** SORRY GUYS MY DOZY ISP HAS DELETED MY ACCOUNT BY ACCIDENT SO THE PIC HAS DISAPPEARED - IT SHOULD BE BACK BY THURS + I HAVE ALSO DONE A PHOTOSHOP COLOUR ONE WHICH I WILL PUT UP TOO - CHEERS, MIKE ***

hello folks

here's a quick sketch of my idea for a stun-gun variation - its a 'Giger-knuckleduster' version

would anyone have any interest at all in a kit of something like this..? I'm thinking of having a go but don't have the skills to make sculpts/moulds so would have to pay a model-maker to do it for me

let me know if you like the look of it - its a 'kill' weapon hence the snouty barrel - the stun gun would be a separate device

I've got loads of ideas for variations

cheers
Mike

first reply cheers

I'm surprised no-one's commented yet, no comments either for or against - maybe I need to do a more finished illustration..?

I like the idea Mike, but I think there is something a little flacid about the design if you get my drift. If you don't look up "vivienne westwood cowboy t shirt".

chuckle yeh I can see what you mean a bit!

its only a first first sketch though to see if I could get a bit of discussion going about it

the next step would be to do finished drawings and get a prototype model sculpted - however this will cost and I'm not sure there's any interest

I might do a more realised photoshop image if I have time

Mike, I don't know if there are any pre-production drawings of the laser gun before the final design was set in stone and produced, but I always find it interesting when somebody produces a model from the concept designs of a piece rather than trying to advance the design. I have seen it done on the X-Wings and other SW ships and also somebody did it with a ST original series phaser. I'm not saying don't attempt what your original idea was but if there is pre-production concept images of it out there it would be a cool project.

I like too! But wouldn't over play the primary barrel so much.
As for the Comlock, surely that would just be a watch, we already have: http://www.slashphone.com/media/data...ch-phone-3.jpg

thanks for all your comments folks, all very interesting - had quite a few views of the thread - think I do need to do more finished image

ps yeh the barrel is big but this is the destruct version - the stun one would be more medical looking and would be white I reckon
