    Very nice, the day-glo pieces are almost hard to look at.

    Racerxc, Nicely done, there is nothing quite so rewarding as a successful resurrection. Bringing a toy "back from the dead" is a nerve wracking experience, but so worth it when everything comes together...literally. That gun is one of my favorites as well.

    Wow, they are gorgeous! I wish I had seen the original offer, I'd have grabbed a set for myself.

    Looks like you guys are speechless.

    Ah, that's how it happens, it all begins so innocently, with a single purchase.

    Yeah, I saw this one too, but it was a bit too rusty for my preference. Of course, with my luck, it is probably incredibly rare.

    Fin, You never know; somewhere out there, squirreled away in a dark unused warehouse office drawer may be a prototype rifle similar to this. And, who knows, it could surface on eBay, that is, unless Doc Atomic gets to it first!

    Interesting experiment, it might be worth a shot.

    Dunno Fin, but I'd say that barrel is a turned wood table leg with a bed knob screwed into it. The tip on the end is the original barrel to the plastic pistol. As for the other parts, they look glued on.

    Well, it was obviously made as a companion piece to the Rocket Gun, as similar design elements are present on both. The small rocket on the top, and the ringed red plastic barrel stand out.

    Hey, this would work too...



    Thanks John!

    A definite improvement!

    Isn't that the new sign for the Blackhorse? I hear it's under new management.

    I watched that one from afar, I knew right after take off that rocket was leaving my galaxy.

    Fin, you know how to pick 'em...that's a neat design. I've seen the pressing for the body before, but not with the flared barrel. Congrats!!

    THX...Hi, it's Tinplate6 here, and I have a non-toy related question. There is an artist who's work I admire, but I don't know her name. She is the one who designed your avatar. By any chance do you know who that is? Thanks.

    Hey,

    Just a quick note to let you know that there is a complete Elastolin set on Ebay for $399 http://cgi.ebay.com/Elastolin-Space-Figures-Complete-4-figure-set-/180637791131?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a0ed9f39b

    I just thought you might like to know.

    Steve,

    Ok, I'm insane over that glass bot. Is there a possibility you could create another one, and if so, how much would you want for one? Thanks.

    Fin,

    I've decided to add you as a friend since you have replied to all my posts with civility and candor. That, plus you haven't fired a broadside across my bow.
