    I like it shiny, I think that the screen used one was shiny, I don't know how it was really, but shiny for me.

    I appreciate what your saying SF...

    And ignoring the barrel tip and the end nipple (as these were as they came to me - black anodized) but the centre prong part is actually anodized and not the natural oxidization that occurs with alumium...

    But as I've said, I only wanted to offer you guys a real deal prop and it seems that this is not the case with some so... I will shelve the idea.

    If some in the thread differ... please feel free to pm me

    You asked for our opinion so we have said our opinion, I think that a shiny one is still a "real deal prop" maybe it's not exactly the same gun that you have, but hey, it's a prop and it should looks as it is in the movies, and that's what I see:

    So from what I can tell from the real piece next to the machined, those two parts are black, with silver in the middle. But from this picture we're all now familiar with, the whole barrel section is silver. So its a fair assumption that it was painted, or chromed to be that color. The body of the pistol was painted brown, so its not unreasonable to say the barrel wasn't also painted, even if it started mostly silver. I again say you make it however you want it made, and we'll do what we want to them if its a matter of reducing cost, I'd still take it shiny. Thank you again for this brilliant work!

    you ROCK!!!!

    I'm will wait for the pics, but as Shinobi said "make it however you want it made" I will accept it black, silver, or pink

    Gav, you are the master, and if you decide to go with something that is just a few dollars more, or go the other way to save a few, i think those interested in this run are going to be willing to pay a little more, or less for that matter, to get their mits on one of these bad boys ...i am in for however you make it, and if a few dollars extra gets spent, it is pennies compared to the whole cost of the costume so far...

    WE? only been 3 people?
    It was 5 people, but whose counting?

    Mojo - you only asked the question at 10:38 and threw in the towel on the idea based on all the feedback you had received by 12:48? Why not wait until some people have come home and checked the board?

    I prefer shiny and to take it from there. Like Spidey I may leave it a little more on the shiny side. That's just a personal preference though.

    The work on this has been awesome and I would be happy with it either way. Having done a little diving in the past I would agree with your assessment that it was probably not a shiny aluminum on the original, but would have been more dull.

    Re: ESB correct sidearm interest topic

    Hey Gav,
    Awesome work so far...
    I have a question or rather a request.

    Living in Canada and with firearms/guns the rules are strict here,
    and this being a very close replica to a working spear-gun, would it be possible to ship all the metal parts and resin/plastic parts separately.. I just don't want to lose this at customs. and also some fancy wordplay in the description of items.

    thx

    I say shiny as well, but I'll be in if majority swing towards dull silver.

    6g - Just have Gav paint the gun all fluorescent orange, that should help.

    I also prefer shiny, but I'm not on the list yet. I'm still hoping for someone's wife to freak out and won't let them have it so I can take their spot. Now I'm praying my wife won't freak.

    Re: ESB correct sidearm interest topic

    i don't think i'm going to get one... though that stance is getting shakier as i see these awesome pics!

    but i think leaving them shiny is the best bet. that finish looks like it should be relatively easy to replicate with paint and weathering. so then you'd be able to do a clean and shiny model or a weathered one, depending on what you like.

    I imagine Gav will make every effort to make sure these can ship without complications

    Hiya Arn... no the replica will not have the internal parts, and I will of course send it to you in a kit form labeled as a 'model' kit?

    Here's a shipping idea to beat customs: ship it in one big box, but with lots of smaller boxes inside, maybe that would show them it's really just a kit...
