No rubbing on this one Ed . I used Rust-Oleum enamel clearcoat on everything.

Lots of work cutting and filing the fittings to get the right look. The scope caps are 3/8 copper caps coped on the bottom using a 1/2” round file . I then drill through the cap and 1/2” pipe. I then put 14ga house wire through the cap and pipe and solder it together to make crosshairs in the scope.  Trial and air to get things right through the years. Now if my son could find the original two. After the basement flooded things got all moved around :rant2: . 

 

:thanks: guys for the compliments. I really miss building these for the youngsters. I know some people are against kids playing with toy guns but I believe teach them young and all the rules if it was the real thing.

Jeff , I think you have been pulling our leg the whole time. You just like using that fancy chair to show up every body on the teeter totter at The Big Show. Your really did some fantastic work on toys. Wish I had those skills and patience .
