This is another item from a previous posting of mine (miscellaneous guns 2). I called this one the Klingon gun, even though it doesn't really look anything like one too much. Below is what a Klingon Gun should look like.
"It sort of looks like it....but no, not really."
As I has mentioned in my earlier blog, I slapped this together from remaining wood pieces from a kit my Father got for me.
A few months ago I decided to add stuff to it, like some cardboard on the handles....
...a back 'hammer' area....
....a few pencils...
...and some more cardboard.
...but then I left it alone again.
Now I added a lot of crafting foam, lollipop sticks and thumb tacks to really spruce up the look.
Now it really doesn't resemble a Klingon gun....at least one that we've never seen before.
Next I gave it some primer.
Then I decided to give it a light coat of gold acrylic paint.
After the gold dried I added some black and white paint and made it pop a little.
Then I gave the gun a coating of Mod Podge.
Below the Klingon gun dries next to my Disruptor pistol.
Once it dried I was done.
I definitely am glad that I finished this gun after so many years of it sitting in a box. I know it doesn't look like an actual Klingon pistol, but it's not a bad looking gun anyway.
Thanks for reading!
