So I decided after making the last Pewter parts that I really wanted the Hammer to match. So I went ahead and did just that :p As you can see its starting to really come together. I only have 3 more moulds to make. Hopefully I can get at least another done before the weekend and maaaaaaybe finish them all off next week!

I only gave it a light polish, there is some pitting going on so I need to fine tune my temperatures to get a nice smooth finish but I'm still happy for a first try.

Next I would like to experiment with applying a patina to the Pewter parts as the Hammer and Trigger should be Brass. I haven't done anything like electroplating before so if anyone has some advice please do let me know. I did do a little Google and I think I need to plate them with Nickle and then Brass?

So next job is to drill and tap all the screw holes, then I will give it a coat of silver and then its final coat of Gunmetal before weathering. Once that is done I need to work on the electrics for the Bullets and Laser and finally put it together!

At this point I am pretty much ready to start taking orders, so if you're interested I have a interest thread already setup HERE

oh cool! that's a nice update indeed!
removing the center part of the mold with the rifling on it must not be easy!

That's what the wooden dowel is for, it helps keep the mould centred and once it's cast I can pull it out of the silicon so that's it's more flexible to remove
