Trigun- Vash's gun Final by fevereon Trigun- Vash's gun Final by fevereon
Completed project for Otakon 2004 art show, taking place July 28-30.

Built with poplar and Red Oak, with a Walnut handle, this scratchbuilt wooden model of Vash's gun from the anime/manga series "Trigun" (Yasuhiro Nightow) gun is articulated with spinning cylinder, removable wooden bullets, basic trigger/hammer mechanism, and hinge lock for swivelling the barrel to access bullets.

Built in approximately 40 hours between 7/19-24 :)

Edit-9-26-05: theres a couple changes to this faq, as i'm no longer offering this piece for sale.. got to attached, sorry :\

edit 9-19-06: if you use this and the wip stuff as a guide to making your own, please link back here.. its rude to pass off all work as your own... you know who you are :p

edit 3-28-09: updates and extra sugarcoating for the hypersensitive!

* can you give me blueprints/directions/specs etc
I never HAD any blueprints. I worked from a couple blown up screencaps. I would appreciate not receiving emails/notes/ims every other day asking for such, or demanding/begging/explaining why i should vape more time that i don't have to go back to this dirt old thing and make them. Since I have no intent on doing so, and regardless of how nice I am when turning down said requests, begs (and sometimes nasty self entitled outright -demands-), all requests for such will instead be ignored & deleted.

There are work in progress images with tips and such posted in the scraps section.

* why don't you paint it silver??
I was aiming for something more unique than what I could easily find elsewhere, and I thought it would be interesting to see if I could integrate the natural grain, colors, and texture of wood into this piece.

* Will you make more?
With few exceptions my props are primarily "one-offs". This is one of those, and I have no intention of doing another, commission or otherwise. I'm not a mass production facility, and don't really like doing pieces more than once.

* Thats cool, but you -should- make xx from yy!
These things take much time (and funds, and booboos) to do, and I'm working on either commissions or personal work. I don't have time or interest in doing prop "requests"

* Are you selling this?
After 5 years of conventions, tons of people touching it (yeh, i *do* allow touching lol) and a couple dings in the barrel and cylinder from a rather rough baggage search, i'd rather not sell it at this point.

I just realised now that you used different woods for the different parts - lol, just read the blurb now.  In even more awe.  Great work.
