I also want to give a big thank you to all my new friends over at Brass Goggles for giving me advice as I went along.
I had taking my inspiration from the PPC Wesson, and from the hit series Firefly, all I needed was the 'right' piece for the chamber. I found this piece a mere 7 days ago, and in that time I have designed and fabricated the following prop. I was at work all last week, so the max number of hours I could have spent on this was about 15-20 hours.
The Quasi-Dimensional Air Displacing Revolver works on what is considered a not fully understood fringe technology, the actual chamber is a found piece of equipment with no reference to where it came from. After many tests and experiments it was found that the chamber would randomly shift matter from one place to another, the outer of the weapon was fabricated to contain and control this strange phenomena.
The Revolver will shift every thing in its path forwards by 2.3784 mm, creating a clean cut unmatched by any other tool or weapon. The range of the device is limited by rotating the two sections of the chamber, the longer the range the narrower the spread.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Thick straw board cardstock (one could easily use a wooden base, or use layers of MDF etc)
- A small collection of individual pieces to accent the design
- A chamber shaped section, you will have to look around, if all else fails you can use a section of card tube, or PVC pipe
- Black straight to metal spray paint
- Metallic paint of your choice, one to be applied with paint
- A matt varnish
- A leather to compliment the metallic paint chosen earlier
- Wooden Corner dowel
- PVA (elmers glue)
- Epoxy Resin
- Thick craft wire
- A hand drill, and selection of drill bits
- A hand saw
- Stanley Knife (boxcutter)
- Sand paper
- Desk vice
- Extra hands and fingers (thanks Wells!)
