I was never able to get a satisfactory picture of my signature weapon, the Avalon, when I was in Georgia, but now that I'm back in New England I was able to get a smashing picture of it. The emulsiphanium vial isn't attached because I haven't gotten it out of packing yet but screw it, still looks great. ^_^ I'm happy to finally be able to show it to you in its most accurate form.
Beautiful work of art there...
Thanks! One of my favorites, for sure. There's a new picture of the touched up version floating around, be sure to check it out.
Nice piece o work there!
Great photo.. great gun.. I love the use of leather here, really clever. Didn't even realize it was the BuzzBee until just then... fantastic job.
Thanks! I really like the leather, too. I plan to incorporate it into more work, if I can find a good supply.
Great setting and shot. I love this gun.
God, me too. I'd say top 3, for sure. Somewhere up there with the S.C.Avenger and the Minuscule. Screw ordering 'em, too hard.
Very interesting combination of different guns here. I can tell right off the bat that you used a Hunter for the base. And I like the use of the double-shot buzzbee shotgun. The only one I'm slightly worried about is the fact that it looks like you used the cocking mechanism from the air zone shell shock blaster (although I know it goes under various names), I'm a fan of that gun and I just hope you put the other pieces of it to good use as well. (and I'm sure you did) Anwyay, very nice work.
I'm impressed, all of your source calls are correct- though to be fair I didn't do enough sculpting to have intentionally hidden most of them. The Shell Shock in question was, by the time of construction, about 1 or 2 years old and had already existed as one other apparently unsellable gun (La Arma de Aurelliano Batalla) and, as per my general method of parts-getting, after about a year of sale-less-ness, it was broken down. Once disassembled, parts of it went all over the place; here, as various accents on the AMR-B15 District 9 inspired rifle, onto a commission I'm still working on called the Shiranui, and of course into my parts bin for whatever future use. I tend to waste nothing if I break down a weapon, since I paid for it and put the work into it. Thank you for your careful asessment and interest.
Yeah, I've probably got some guns that I should be salvaging, but I just can't bring myself to do it. It's too hard to say goodbye.
Why do you think I catalogue everything in photo, video, and writeup form? The way I look at it, the fact that it was made is the beautiful part. The actual item, fun to display, but not the point. I mean, I make most of it out of trash anyway, and it stays there until it's part of a new gun. "From whence it came, it shall remain, until it is complete again".
if you end up going to Conbravo in Burlington Ontario this year you just might see a certain ODST with the answer to your Piece of Eight, but I would love to see The Avalon first hand.
