    Display Stands for Replica Guns and Rifles - Looking for recommendations

    I've purchased airsoft rifle stands at Evike.com. They have something called TMC Professional Grade Rifle Rest/Wall Stand/Rifle Stand Display for $30. I have purchased four of these over the years for a Trek laser rifle, some Lost in Space laser rifles, and a Aliens Pulse Rifle. They are...

    lost in space laser rifle

    Hard to tell. The rear stock as designed always looked a bit oversized and out of proportion to the rest of the rifle, IMO. But it looks like you have a very nice replica and I wouldn't sweat the details!

    Star Trek Discovery Phaser toy by McFarlane shown at Toyfair

    Star Trek Discovery Phaser by Anovos

    I'm sure the small run size (6 waves @ 50 per wave) makes the per unit cost of production high and the licensing fees are then spread over a small number of units. Not sure how many TOS phasers were sold by The Wand Company, but I'd have to estimate several thousands. However, agree that for...

    3D Printing from 2D Photos?

    The package from Shapeways arrived today. The Lost in Space Soto Jet Gun whistle replica is fantastic! It fits into the rifle slot just as it should (maybe a few percent too small, but very close). Here are some photos. As you can see, it looks just as it should. This piece is never found...

    3D Printing from 2D Photos?

    Thank you so very much! I downloaded the file, uploaded to Shapeways, and my order will be here in about a week. I'll let you know how it turns out and post photos here. Thanks again to everyone for your help and comments. And, jintosh, your efforts were amazing and so much appreciated!

    3D Printing from 2D Photos?

    Interesting question.... I consider myself a "practical collector" but not an archivist. I'd love to have everything original, but the realities are that sometimes rarity and/or cost make it impossible to acquire the original item. In such a case, I'm OK with copies and replicas. For example...

    3D Printing from 2D Photos?

    You guys are great! Thanks for engaging with me on this project! jintosh, the width of the slot in the gun is 11mm. So that would make the width of the black mark 11mm as well. Here are the photos that I have:
