    Very nice! Good to see you lucked out with the QMx Mal; can't wait to see the Sidkit added. :)

    Which version of the Mare's Leg is that? Denix?

    Thanks! I wanted to have the foil but also show off the bar!
    I just have the walnut grips to finish and then the Sidkit will be up! The Mare's Leg is the denix. It may have been the quickest Firefly build lol. I just added black patina and a clear coat.

    Thanks! They were an eBay purchase. I think they were meant for cap guns but they work just fine.

    Thanks for all the kind comments folks!

    I don't think so but it was a fairly simple day build. I took a denix navy pistol, chopped off the barrel, removed the loading arm and filled that area with plumbers puddy. I sanded that down then painted it!
    Lol my Boo is in pieces at the moment waiting for me to finish it! It's just a matter of assembly and bluing!

    Love the foodbar, how did you do the weathering on the exposed section?

    Great paintjob!

    Thanks! The bar itself was cast in that particular color already. The foil wrap was brushed with Rub n' Buff.

    Finished my Sidkit #66 Mal pistol with real wood grips! It took awhile but it was worth the wait.

    The red in my room messes with the colors so I also included a side by side shot of the QMX Mal.

    I believe you may also have an "Adventures of Brisco County Jr." prop replica there too. I heard that Zoe's Mare's Leg was the same prop gun used by Lord Bowler in Brisco.

    I'll also step in and say the unwrapped foil on the food bar is extremely well done.
    Super nice job on the Sidkit, also.
    Far as the guykit vs the Sidkit,
    ANYTHING we build ourselves deserves a special place in our collections,
    whether it is putting a nice finish on a kit or turning mass-market junk into art.
    The acrylic stands are also a nice touch.
    The only bad part is that collecting Firefly is like disease.
    Just when you think you're cured of needing anything else,
    just-one-more-piece comes along!

    Getting a complement from Mike is quite an honor. Mike you have the ultimate collection and don't get me started on the craftsmanship!

    I agree, it's an addiction. Just when you think everything has been made some member here finds another prop!

    Thank you for all the compliments. You folks are Shiny!

    Thanks! I used a zinc patina on it that did some weird things but it did make it look used so I was pretty happy with the result. The thing is heavy as heck!

    Cool. I had no idea you could get something to patina zinc. What's it called?

    And the Burgess laser is also a favorite of mine from the series. Very jealous!!

    It's called Novacan and I just stumbled across on eBay. I also used it on Zoe's carbine and it turned out great on that

    I thought fans of Serenity may enjoy seeing two of my recent creations. My sister wanted to go as River from the Reaver fight scene and needed the Ax and Sword she used in the scene. I know they make a metal version of each but they are not very screen accurate and I thought carrying metal weapons would be a bad idea. Here are my interpretations of the weapons along with pictures of the actual props from the movie.
