Just a quick and dirty pic of a Doctor Who styled sonic I'm working on made all out of copper pieces.
Now I didn't design this at all. It was originally an entry in the Replica Prop Forum's sonic screwdriver contest from...I believe a year ago. It was Jason1976's entry numbered 31 seen here: [link]
and was just so elegant and very well thought design that I just HAD to have one...sadly though he didn't have the time to make another and he admitted that his electronics wiring skills weren't quite up to the task so I asked if he could put together a DIY kit for me and well, he did!
I've been sitting on these parts for a year before I finally started cutting the copper fittings and assembling the parts. I made a few changes, such as soldering the components for the butt-end of the sonic together and I'll be making further changes like an added slider plate similar to the 10th Doctor's sonic and also changing the contents of the clear neck section as i haven't the talent to make actual functioning clock gears that work...seriously, take another look at his entry...working clock gears! Brilliant! I also have to paint the grip section black and maybe do an aged chemical wash to the copper followed by a light polishing or maybe use a fine wire brush on it but I think when done this should look pretty slick.
Also...why the hell does DA keep putting my picture on it's side? I had to re-upload the picture twice XD
