The Newest Creation from The Royal Armouries
christiangraves


The Royal Armouries Heat Rifle.
The narrow barrel with collimating coil gives greater range and effect than any hand held heat weapon produced before, and the heat dissipation ring and versatile coolant socket allow more versatility then earlier models also.
High pressure and improved faceting methods (using the techniques patented by the Royal Jewellers to cut the Koh-I-Noor) give the collector cystal the ability to process energy from a light source as dim as a household oil lamp

Well, after considering whether it could be done correctly and creating a scratch build prototype that was way too fragile. i have finished (other than debating with myself over how weathered it is going to be, probably not much) the Cosmo-96...doing the same kind of Matsumoto style mods to a Mauser C-96 as he did to a Colt Dragoon...
I am very happy with the product, not as thin in the barrel as most Matsumoto weapons, since i wanted to leave it as a functioning airsoft pistol, but still owing a very definite debt to him.
Presenting Pirate Captain Einar Gosric's personal firearm, the Cosmo-96 one of only three in existence.
Along with 'Lorelei' his ship.

okay, here we go.
I started out with an airsoft mauser C-96 and a bunch of junk.
I removed the inner workings and slide of the gun (making a new band so the trigger would still work) the end result was so
Photobucket

then using the misc stuff i had for inspiration i pondered the layout of the gun.
i combined a brass plated toilet roll holder with an industrial strength spring, the stem of a brass candle holder and a crystal pendant/cord pull to fabricate the rear solar ray collector and cooling coil and a copper pipe fitting with the end of the candle holder to create the emission bell and barrel as so

and

these were combined and place on the gun using a copper strap and metal putty.
at this point i decided to add a little bit more detail and attached a brass nut and a short copper feed tube to the side of the gun. I filled the gaps remaining from removing the slide and began to paint a basic brass paint job wth a tin bitz paint for accent. The end result being this.

I am rather proud of this one i think

Well, this is funny (Doc Holliday)

Funnily enough, and ironic in a strange way, a certain adult establishment near the Great Escape in Nashville is now an Ethiopian restaurant.
We went to see 'Doomsday' over the weekend, it is the best 80s post apocalypse movie to come out since the 80s...It seriously rocked my world and the fact that Siouxsie and the Banshees and Adam and the Ants were in the soundtrack along with Frankie goes to Hollywood pretty much clinched it for me.
I say oscar!
