R.U.C. Revolver by Solvash R.U.C. Revolver by Solvash
Hello, folks! This week we have the finished product of my "Really Unnecessarily Cool" Revolver, or "R.U.C." Revolver for short.

As I mentioned last week, the handgun is made out mainly Aspen wood with Red Oak for the grip. It is also based on the Webley-Fosbery design, although I simplified it and added my own details. After I finished shaping it and carving the main details, as seen in the work in progress, I just ran some fine sandpaper over everything to smooth it out. I then applied a coat of Minwax Polyurethane Clear Gloss, let it dry, lightly sanded it smooth again and applied a second coat of Polyurethane. After it was dry once again, I buffed it a little with an attachment on my dremel to knock back the shine a tiny bit. I think it all turned out rather well.

Also, again as I mentioned last week, I made this for my acting class and I think this is the first time a "prop" of mine has actually been used as a theatrical prop. Hahaha... It served me well. Well, I hope you like it and please look forward to my future projects.

The work in progress can be seen here: [link]

Yes! It is, indeed, based on the different .455 Webley revolvers.

Quite impressive, and jealousy inducing too.

In that you're doing things in wood I didn't even think were possible; at least not without heavy use of putty, lots of sanding and primer to cover the rough spots and smooth out the finish.

Well, to be honest, there are a couple of spots that had some gaps in them that I filled with wood filler, but they're in places that you can't really see or would notice. And if you do a good enough job going over it with fine sandpaper, applying the finish, sanding, and re-applying, it'll be wonderfully smooth. C:
