I love making these!
It's longest dimension is about 10 1/2", with the top only barrel length being about 10 1/2"!
The closest thing you will find to a "real, live ray gun," like in the old comics, movies, serials, and science fiction stories. These are a part of my "Retro Tech" series made out of wood of all things which gives them a cool look and feel. It's a FULL, LIFE SIZE replica (or 1:1 scale finished model) all ready for display.
Made almost 100% from wood unless stated otherwise (I sometimes use tiny amounts of other things) I use paint and many finishes, often metallic, and make sure a lot of details shine through, often even the wood grain itself despite high tech themes. They maintain an often retro, sometimes even rustic look and feel to them, like an "olde worlde" toy or something (some more so than others ... I am told that surprisingly many do not even look like they are wood, but like metal or some manmade material... you can usually tell by the photos).
While you're here consider browsing my many other pieces usually made mostly from wood including ray guns, robots, rockets, flying saucers, other vehicles, animals, diorama scenes, etc... made in various forms from tiny miniatures to full size replicas, jewelry like pendants, Christmas ornaments, magnets and others! I do retro, some straight hard science, steampunk, humorous and anything else that comes to mind...
These collectable pieces are generally meant for display or adult use and NOT for young children to play with. Do to their hand made and finished nature as well as the natural wood and materials used some variations are of course normal.
Please email rather than convos if possible for easy and flexible communication. I usually post my adddress in my store, so thanks. I gladly accept checks (USA) or money orders and cashier's checks! I take credit cards (usually directly as a merchant) -- if any other online options they will be listed in the emails I and Etsy will send buyers. All of the information you should need should be available right on the Etsy receipt as well as in these emails. I DO ship all over the world!!! Do to the variety of my merchandise and post office changes I may not be able to list shipping a head of time but am fair and feel free to contact me... I LOVE foreign orders!
Interested in a variation of what you see or an outright custom made piece at a fair price? Contact me for details.
Thanks for looking!
