    Where the hell did the original Holy Shotgun thread go? Mods, please merge if need be. I just wanted to show my version of the licensened version. Man, this was a pain in the *. MUCH weathering went into this...

    That looks great. Did you go with the rub n buff treatment? What did you use for the weathering?

    Does the shell drum come off? Or is it just one big solid piece?

    not sure about the others, but mine is one solid piece. I will have another one here on monday that i will attempt to modify into having removable parts such as the drum and the flash light.
    Attempt being the Key word here.

    I just got mine in the post, got it from a great Ebay seller who chopped off the base for me and just sent the gun. Saved a fortune on shipping - total cost £54($95)..
    Just some fingers and bits of wire to remove, then its repaint time.

    Funky,
    Did you remove all the old paint first or just weather the current finish?

    I wonder if any of you shotgun replica owners would be able to make a resin kit of this prop... That would be sweet. I'd love to get my hands on a resin cast that I could totally modify from the ground up.

    I always wanted to have one Vac-metalized. Not sure if you'd lose some of the scroll work though.

    You prolly would, but that wouldnt be too difficult to put back on yourself afterwards. Plus, with all the money you'd save, it'd be worth the effort.

    I am fairly new to this forum and i have looked around at the holy shotgun threads and post.I would lke to give my holy shotgun a brass aged look with the drum aged too.What is the best method to repaint and age it?
    I am going to this steampunk event near me as a steampunk John Constantine.

    I guess without taking it completely apart I would just spray it with black automotive primer and then just rub-and-buff a brass finish over that. If you do it carefully enough you should be able to highlight the engraved lettering detail. Maybe buff the drum a steel color for contrast? A nice dark Constantine shotgun could look interesting.

    I'd love to see pics when you're done. :thumbsup
