Mobster Dieselpunk Tommy Gun Prop

I'm very honored to have this piece featured on dA. Thanks to ladies who made that happen :))

ok, back to the regular description, hehe

Here's a pretty straight-forward prop, but it really seems to work as a alternate-past tommygun. I painted for the crew at a local body shop (they help prep the guns so they're as durable as possible.) I like how the stock came out considering I drew all the grain in by hand..that usually looks crap in my eyes. I hope they have a good time with it!

I will say that I want to call this Mobster Punk, but that's probably already a thing and I'm too lazy to google it! :)

Thank you for taking an interest in something I find fun. It's appreciated more than you all realize. I also survive off commissions, so email me at if have a project you think I could make look purdy :)

Can anyone explain to me the difference between steampunk & dieselpunk?
DJSkyRunner's avatar
Well the biggest differences are the era, diesel punk is very 20s-50s while steampunk is mid 1800s to 19teens, it's steam powered vs diesel powered engines.

Diesel Punk is darker metal, kinda oily looking sometimes. Much more of a WWII German weapon feel to them in my opinion. Steampunk tends to be brighter metals and a lot of gold tones. They're generally fanciful and look rather delicate

its like a ppsh 41 and a mg36
This weapons look like it come from the slum of a hive city in warhammer 40k. Its very well made.

I think you just broke the internet!
deathbyskyrim's avatar
whaaa? :ohnoes: nooooooo!!! We cannot break the interwebs!
JohnsonArmsProps's avatar
I hope you are pleased with yourself, sir! lol
deathbyskyrim's avatar
hahaha :lol: okay but seriously, what is the big cone thing on the end of the gun?
JohnsonArmsProps's avatar
Just a decorative flash supressor so it doesn't look overly realistic if someone saw it from just the front. This was a repaint, otherwise I would have made a different front end. The buzzbee designers would have to explain for the style :)
deathbyskyrim's avatar
OOHHHHHH a repaint! Well why didn't ya say so?! Ahhhh i feel stupid now. :x I thought you built it yourself. Actually for a repaint of a toy gun this is really cool! :lol:

Hell, it's really cool, repaint or otherwise!

Thanks for re-activating my brain for me :)
