Hi All,
Here is the part set for you to make your own Blade Runner pistol, only it is a Snub-Nose version. It is derived from Rajeev Menon's artwork (ArtStation) Hat to this user.
I made some modifications to it because it use WaterGel toy revolver as the base (it's a toy and its made in China, sturdy enough but not very strong. And it is single action only with a disconnected trigger to the cylinder movement) , picture attached. I might make an assembly video in the future, but don't count on it. I'm camera shiny. But you are a fan, than not much explanation needed. If not, there are plenty info on the Inter web.
Word of note, the "pistol" is rather heavily modified, so I don't think a real pistol can be used. Unless you are very talented with machining, and very much OK to ruin a perfectly good Python 357 Magnum.
I used PLA, but it seems ABS would be a better choice, really much easier to sand. 0.2mm works if you set it right, and try to use the flat surface provided and use support roof if you can.
The goal is to make a functional WaterGel Pistol, so it works. There are special part that was available to me, if you can't find it, suppose you can use the part from the toy.
Part list:
Water Gel Revolve, 2inch barrel version
M3xmm Allen Key thumb screw X 7 ish
M3x8mm Allen Key Ball head screw X 2
M3x8mm Phillp Head Screw X 3-4
M3x8mm Phillp Head Screw X 1
M4x10mm Allen key thumb screw X 4
M4x20mm Phillip Head Screw X 1
M5x10mm Allen key thumb screw X 1
3mm LED X 2
5mm LED X 2
0.3 X 3 coil spring
2mm wielding steel filler
Tools you will need:
Needle Files
Sand paper
Hammer
pliers
crafting knife
screw drivers
Allen Keys
And a bunch of patience.
I used aluminium foil to cover the whole thing before painting, it could be your options too. Reference Adam Savage and Bill Doran. If any of you want to refer this to them, I'd love to show it off. Thanks!
These are what I can remember so far.
If I do end up making a video about it, it will be linked in the future. In the meanwhile, have some fun making your own.
Free the internet.

Well, I didn't know, to all of the forerunners. I haven't used RPF for long, so excuse if I don't mention everything.

No worries! It's just that Rick's contributions are often overlooked - credit where credit is due, right?

And thanks for sharing your build - pretty cool (y)

Indeed. Thanks for teaching me this piece of history, it is important.

I was quite ignorant with these things, you see. I only started to interest in this subject last year since I watched Adam Savage's video. And obviously, I wasn't paying enough attention to the names.

:cool: Thanks! Go and grab yourself a copy on Thingiverse. On the other note, I couldn't seem to find the website. Could you share a link?
