Void Pistol - Full View by pocko-85 Void Pistol - Full View by pocko-85
"The Department for Defense Against Abstract Warfare spent millions of dollars researching the new threats we had become exposed to, when multi-dimensional beings were found to exist. While safe inter-dimensional travel remained beyond our capabilities, related research was used to make 'cracks' between dimensions. Inevitably this was developed further, and ultimately weaponised. The Void Pistol opens up such cracks under relatively controlled conditions. When this effect is targeted at objects or beings the result is that part or parts of the target are transported between dimensions. The final outcome of such use is extremely destructive." 

The VP was constructed using a black ABS Project Box (from Maplin here in the UK), a layered MDF handle and styrene rod for the trigger. The trigger guard and sight assembly were modelled in SketchUp then printed by Shapeways. The business end of the pistol is salvaged from a very old camera. To finish the look I bought some cheap Colt 1911 grips. This was all held together with threaded rod, Milliput, epoxy glue, and glazing putty. The 'coolant' canister is salvaged from an old inhaler.

I made an LED circuit with a lock switch as the main power control. When switched on you get a glowing red LED, when the trigger is pulled you get a green LED, with an orange LED shining out from the front lens. 

It was all painted with Tamiya sprays and Games Workshop acrylics and inks. 

Before the final layer of weathering was added, I applied my own decals which I created in Photoshop. This was all finished off with a dusting of MIG weathering powder.

I love this! I'm currently working on a prop of my own that is highly inspired by this design. I'd love your opinion of it when it's done if you don't mind.

Thanks so much for the enthusiastic comment! The lights are a really basic circuit, but I feel it does add an extra dimension.
