A few weeks ago I started a blaster but I didn't have a camera till now.
This is the first time I've ever tackled a project like this but I'm having the
time of my life. I'm an Industrial Design Student at Humber College in
Toronto, Ontario, so I have a whole work shop at my disposal.
So far i've only used...
- MDF (1/8", 1/4" and 1/2")
- Renboard ( I think... i found it in the scrap bin)
- Wood Glue
- Band Saw
- Drill Press
- Various Sanders ( Belt, Disc etc...)
- Webley Templates
For the stock, I laminated several thick pieces of MDF together, cut the
shape on the band saw and just started filing away at the wood. I've got
the general shape for most parts now. Only another sitting and it should
The bracket and gun handle where also laminated MDF cut to shape.
Tonight I started the part that resembles a revolver on the Webley.
I used a piece of scrap renboard, lay-ed out the design using tracing
paper and templates and began to crave it out. If you haven't worked
with this before, it models like a dream. I used the band saw to cut the
shape, sanders to get the radius and square shapes, a drill press for
where the piece mounts to the handle and then a Milling Machine for the
slot through the middle.
It's not finished but im fairly happy with the way it came out. The material
has a Machined look to it. You can get great detail with the renboard.
...I work on this every day... so there will be updates soon.
how's it lookin?
