I want to show the first result after a nearly 16 hours marathon in varnish the parts, sort all out, get things complete, drilling holes, checking the reference pics, putting the parts together, aging,...and so on. You know the steps at best.
The overall built are all parts from umoribawar. Some are newer, some are older parts. But I was able to get all functional and fitting together. I heard he's no longer making these parts..so..this should be kind of a rare replica one day. For the aging I referred my steps to the pics from the "Minnesota Planet Hollywood Pictures" on the gbfans-mainsite. I used real nycoils and an authentic clippard valve R701. You must know...yeah, we've seen that parts many times...but note...I'm overseas and I really love it to get all the authentic parts together, because in germany or elsewhere in europe you wouldn't find those. Well, let's take a look and reply to it if u have any suggestions what I have overlooked or what u like...etc.
a few minor things which I've done for me personally:
-the complete wand is made of aluminium
-the red button on the front handle is replaced with a clear red one (the original is a red one, no clear), but I liked the clear version better
-authentic rubber grips, no resin as usual used on replicas
-real world red, brown and black wires (coming outside the gunbox into the grip section)
-white hat light on top is "sticking out" (correct it would be coming from the inside out)
-the acrylic frosted tube can be "shot out" mechanical by hand as seen in the movie
-the heat sink on the side is a real world item I've cutted to size by myself. This one was out of my old PC and it fitted so well...I couldn't resist to use it (I also have a correct heat sink which I can use, too)
So it's practically not 100% sa, yet.. but..hey..this is was I've imagined. Real world parts, my creation, my long life passion. This was completed in may 2012.
