And now for something completly different

Hi all, as the title says I just wanted to show you a little something Ive wanted for years.
 What is it?  The Deep Sleep(flame gun) from Logan's Run.

2 parts are finished and the rest well under way. Another day and it should be ready for primer. I made the main body and grip by simply laminating about 12 layers of styrene and sanded it to shape.
 I know there are existing resin kits out there but because its such a basic design I felt it would be more fun to do it from scratch.
It doesnt spout flame but the trigger does work.

Later in the day I got to this point so I added a few new pics.

 Next, primer. Then lots of coats of gloss black.
Not bad for a one day build. Very satisfying.

And finally, black coats are on and Im calling it done.
Started friday morning, finished Sunday afternoon. If only all projects were this easy.

 Oh and Spider news, the parts are on the way to me so pics coming soon.
