Shock and Awe (2013)
One of the main reasons I decided to do Miss Fortune was because of her guns, Shock and Awe and what drove me towards them was their level of refined detail. It was a challenge designing all the interior and exterior elements to fit together properly. The guns are entirely made of cast resin elements, the only exception being the inner wall of the barrel which is PVC pipe.
The biggest challenge was creating the single action trigger effect. Inspiration was taken from a similar build another prop maker designed, using two springs. Audio effects play out of the guns from the inside, amplified by the hollow barrel structure. Alclad lacquers were used to paint the guns, afterwards weathered with acrylic paints.
