    Thanks to the VERY patient customer, no glamor photos as it had to get out the door as it was forever dragging on...

    Not a GB1 or GB2 specific pack and focus on simply making a nice looking prop and not getting crazy * on the small details as long as they were close...

    Short of the main wand body and grips the barrels and all the detail parts are aluminum, all real light caps and the sorts...

    Shell is my fiberglass shell, and all my parts with real fittings, real Legris elbows and straights as well as a real Clippard and some aluminum detail parts...

    Full lights and sound, and it weighs in at about 35lbs! It feels 'real'...

    My brother went hog wild on the weathering to give it hte 20+ year old used and abused look...

    Like I said no fancy photos we will have to leave that up to the client if he pokes his head in here and wants to take some photos once he gets it tomorrow morning...

    Looks "used for years".... :):thumbsup

    Are the tubes, etc. your resin parts with the wood core or aluminum parts?

    Hope to see you around somewhere online the next time... :)
