No, it's half a hookah and a lot of old radio parts and a goodly portion of Meccano.

It looks even sweeter off the stand. The red meccano somehow detracts imho. Confused

The gun itself is awesome though.

I have to say that looks rather groovey. I can just imagine Captain Nemo running about with one of them jobbers shoting pirates or suchlike. Fantastic Grin

Got to agree there - looks brilliant off the stand, especially when you can see how big it is.... in the first pic it looks quite small but when you see it being held, wow.

I reckon the stand needs some wood and or leather on it to give it some Victorian class.

Fantastic, especially the pic of you holding it. Cool

Love the disc around the front.

I agree with the above about the Meccano stand though. I'm not just jumping on the Meccano wagon here (honest), I thought the same thing at the 1st picture.

But if it's just somewhere to store it, then no prob...
