    On the kit version can you do the brass, then brown on the whole thing like it is when the show starts??? Then we can "rub off" the amount we want???


    Personally I like it more Brown with just some Brass showing like at the beginning of the series??

    That's what I am asking. Can we get a kit but finished with the brass base and then complete brown to then rub off to our own likes or a complete gun but with the mag loose and the brown complete or nearly???

    Also what is the timeframe, as in when would you need payment??

    Thanks

    Ah, man, why do you have to come up with all this stuff. One (finished) Serenity gun for me, please... I'm now going to decide which organ I can sell that I don't use. My kidneys, liver and left lung are already gone. Somebody needs a left arm or something?

    @jameth1971, I guess if the brown is some chemical process, then it has to be rubbed off right after applying it. So leaving all the brown on there might make it impossible to take it back off... But you might be able to add more brown with some acrylic washes or rub 'n buff?

    I'm also curious about the timeframe, and would like to get my parts brass plated but not darkened at all. I ave the chemical to do that myself and would prefer to do so.

    Add me to the list for a Firefly TV version. Not sure If I want finished or kit yet.

    I'm down to about 8 high end pieces from over 130 but this is so rare I will move one of my remaining 8 to get this. There are a few things I have that I can replace down the line.

    Must have.

    Oh this sucks and at the same time is awesome!!!!!

    I'm so conflicted.

    Pending time frame?????

    Ok guys, I'll reply here also for all NUOMEROUS PM received.

    Question 1: Time Frame! You could decide your time frame! You could take also 2 months to pay the complete gun. The important thing is that you sent us immediatly 100$ deposit. This pieces are very HIGH request (I don't want to say how many PM received for it :D ). So PLEASE, if you want to be added in the list (don't wait too much otherwise can be too late) write it in the thread, not by PM. Please specify which version you want. I'll send you all deposit request of 100$ in 2/3 days.

    Qustion 2: KIT finished like the complete gun? Yes, we could give you a normal kit for 450$ and a kit finished like the complete gun (materials, color etc) for 500$

    Guys, these are really the last... the last opportunity to take a piece of history in your hands... let me know soon.
    As soon as we'll receive your deposit, soon we'll start our work for finish it.

    So, remember, you can choose your time frame (I hope not more than 2 months) but IMPORTANT is the deposit. SPECIFY WHICH VERSION (movie or series) and WHICH KIT OR COMPLETE!

    Thanks to all!

    OK, so just to clarify, the extra $50 for the "finished" kit. Is that for the brass plating, the brown coating, or both? Can you post a picture of what the different kits would look like out of the box?

    Also curious: if the kit parts are brass-plated and brown-coated like the finished ones. What else remains? Just * the parts together? In that case I also might choose the kit version with finished parts. Maybe a picture of how a kit looks like, would be handy to decide (off course we would understand if in the pictures the parts aren't finished yet).

    I think I'm going to switch to one of the kits; I'd like to assemble it myself so I can do some reinforcements and small modifications. I will let you know for sure which one (basic or "finished" kit) when I send my deposit.

    Question: Have all of the parts already been brass plated? If not, will you be doing further clean-up on the pewter parts before plating? I ask because in a few of the photos the metal looks a little rough under the plating and there's no way to fix that after plating...

    I am not sure if I can keep this down the road as I seem to be being forced out of the hobby altogether but I will either get to re-build down the road or have this Mal gun in a very small collection, or at least get to have it for a while.

    I agree , if I am given a chance to get a deal on this Mal pistol....I cant pass on this ....I missed out on the original SIDKIT version , and always regretted it. I hate to think my bad luck would happen twice , several years later.....I will try my very best , to acquire this.....this is my last prop gun to get....then time to move onto my 50 model kits !!!...LOL

    I really don't know how the brass plating only parts come out. However the kit comes partially assembled and fixed by screws. You'll be able to make all modification you would like on it and choice your own browing coat to give on the brass surface


    This is a example with a raised brow coat on it! Enjoy:

    Thanks mate; I apologize for the miscommunication - I'm not too worried about how the brass plating only parts will look... I was actually double checking that you/Michelle would be removing some of the noticeable bumps and pitting in the raw pewter parts before plating them. From past experience with the pewter Sidkit models, they were fairly common and easy to fix while still bare metal. However, as these parts will be already plated, we won't be able to fix them since doing any sanding would remove the plating.

    I'm sure you guys know what you're doing, but I've been waiting for years to get another one of these, so I just had to ask for reassurance...

    Hi mate!
    Due seems that you are an expert on this model, my advice is to buy the 450$ kit so you can finish it yourself and do it as better as you want ;)

    You can also consider the pits and roughness part of the "aging" of the gun, I guess. It don't really bothers me. For me, the gun doesn't have to look brand new...

    It doesn't have to look brand new for me and I don't want it to either. The original hero parts definitely weren't perfect either.

    I do have extended experience with original Sidkit parts (like many members) and the pewter always needed some touch-up work. However, these are being brass plated, so there's no way for the buyers to properly do that without sanding through the brass. I saw some noticeable rough spots and bumps under the plating in the example photos and wanted to know if they would be fixed in the actual run. I think it's a fair question to ask.

    But I digress. Like I said, I trust that Sarednab/Michelle know what they're doing and I'm not trying to be difficult or cause problems. This is my grail piece, I've been chasing it for about seven or eight years, so I just want it to be as awesome as possible.
