Let’s Build a Rifle…

There I was, about to undercoat the Prowler and start painting, when a little voice whispered in my head that maybe he’d look a little steampunk with a rifle instead of the knife in his hand…

 

So then, the offending part:

Cut and carved and sanded some wood for the rifle stock:

(Definitely needs some pimping, and may get a little re-shaping later but it’ll do for now…)

Did some more woodwork to make the fore-stock, then chopped off the hilt and blade from the hand, drilled through it and slotted the two parts into place:

Lathed some brass tube down and soldered a pin into place to form the bolt:

Cut, filed and Dremelled out the slot of the bolt and the ejection port – closed position:

And open position:

Before anyone asks – no; I do not intend for this to actually fire, and yes; I may be going a little OTT…

Thanks for looking!
