New laser cut steel reinforcing plate for casting into the Webley frame. For non-functioning props i've used steel rod for a while now to strengthen the frame and this works fine. However, when milling out the slots for eg. trigger and hammer switches on props that have EFX, the rods get in the way of where I need to drill.
So I CADed this part to sit in the mold where strength is needed and to leave gaps for the moving parts (after the resin is milled out) & provide strength to the weakest area on the prop.
Nice, but not keen on the barrel having holes cut in it. When I do EFX work I make sure sound can escape via the muzzle tube with holes cut around the tri-LED, cut small slots in the muzzle tube adapter plug between the front mount prongs (relatively unobtrusive) and cut out a portion of the breech block where the top of the frame sits.
