These are my favorite TOS props…the first pilot laser pistol and communicator.
The laser was constructed from a 3D printed body and metal parts. I sanded down the 3D print followed by a wipe down with acetone to get rid of any remaining print lines. This was followed by a primer coat, and several coats of airbrushed semi-gloss black enamel. After a week of curing, I sprayed a semi-gloss clear enamel. Its a static prop, so no working trigger or telescoping barrel.
The communicator was purchased several months ago.
Love these guys and glad to have them in my collection. At some point soon, I will make a replica of the second pilot laser pistol.
