So here's another small update to the laspistol.
The barrel and barrel-shroud have been made from plastic waste pipe, fitted to the pistol body via a hole drilled-in through the front. My first attempt at fitting the barrel with a shallow hole resulted in a fail when I dropped the pistol and the barrel came off. So, after deeper drilling it now sits much more securely. The feature underneath the barrel shroud is a simple rectangle of foamalux thermo-formed around the barrel.
I've assembled the magazine and that needs a bit of work and the addition of a locating pin on the side.
Also started the detail on the top of the pistol, I'm not sure what all that is supposed to be. I think some believe it is a housing for a laser-sight?
I'm really keen to get on and finish the construction so I can crack-on with the paint job. What do you all think of the scaling, does the size of the pistol look about right?
