    looks mighty good. my 36 caliber happens to be made of iron and brass and has a casting tool for rounds. found about 1973 in Germany. good show!!

    That's a beauty! What about a commemorative medallion in the grip? I have a real one that I built close to 30 years ago. Shoots like crazy!

    i actually havnt sat down to decide my textures yet. a pic would be nice.
    i went ahead and built the presentation case, with caps tin, powder flask, and 2 types of bullits and powder charge that can be loaded. i have the bullit mold tool left to do.

    Wow!!!!

    Nothing you work is beautiful!:eek: I have a friend who used to have a "51". He let me fire it a couple of times, very cool! Please tell me you will at least release the pistol here on the forum.:cry: I would absolutely love to build your model! Keep up the astounding work. You have inspired me to at least learn Meta so I can design and contribute here.

    Thank You,

    Todd

    I'm pretty sure it will be available at the new eCardmodels.com site. There's some interesting stuff going on over there.

    Hey Ryan,
    So, have you posted this awesome model at the ecardmodels.com site yet? I looked to see it there, but they only showed the modern 9MM pistol. I would really love to download this model. I am working on a Western steampunk cosplay, and this would go great. Let me know, and thanks for your hard work and craftsmanship.
