Snake Plissken - Capt Kirk mashup: The Gun

50th Anniversary of Star Trek. . .my 50th . . . time to take Kirk cosplay to a new level. I thought a Kirk Plissken mashup was needed.

Thinking, eye patch, Plissken EFNY sleevless shirt in ST:TOS command gold (in progress), EFNY tracer bracelet, ST:TOS pants, EFNY boots with Federation symbol (original Alpinestar HiPoint motorcross boots have the metal shin plate, I will make a Federation logo shinplate), . . . AND . . . a gun.

Not just any gun. . .and not Plissken's EFNY MAC-10 with suppressor and scop. . . a PHASER with suppressor and scope.

Phaser: Amazon buy, Rubie's Costumes phaser prop. Taken apart and filled with AirEpoxy to make solid. Painted.
Suppressor: scratch made, PVC pipe, wood dowel insert, Bondo, 3/8 aluminum dowel (to insert in/attach to phaser). Painted: Rustoleum High Heat BBQ black (don't laugh, has great anodized texture), Rustoleum High Gloss seal.
Scope: scratch made, PVC pipe, 1/8" Sintra, Bondo, 1/8" clear acrylic (the lenses)

Still needs some phaser section detail painting (dials, etc.,). I'll post step by step later.

Ah - better! So much fun!

What about the assault phaser from ST V VI...? Incongruous with TOS tunic, but a robust weapon!
Odd mashup, yes! But it will be sublime when finished. . . or so I hope. Will debut it at WonderCon. . . in a mere 5 weeks and a few days.

Unsure what format I need to save these to NOT make them turn on their side, maybe it's my iPhone orientation when taking them (straight up and down and not sideways). But here are two more.

And here is the Plissken sleeveless in ST:TOS command gold material (bought through
