Dwayne Hicks Ithaca 37 Shotgun prop from Aliens

Dwayne Hicks Ithaca 37 Shotgun prop from Aliens

Quick update on the latest mod. This is a toy water blaster I picked up purely because as soon as I saw it I thought of Hicks’ Ithaca Shotgun in Aliens. I weighted this so it comes in at over half a kilo, not too heavy, but cool for cosplay. I might mount this on a backboard with an Aliens logo and info, like a display piece, I haven’t decided yet.

No not that Close Encounters ... I hear that!

As you can see this is a more basic paintjob than my usual, but I wanted to make it as realistic as possible.

For those that asked over on my Facebook page, here’s the before and after shot. It’s a Buzz Bee Water Warriors Hydro Blast. I think I got it in Target, but I imagine anywhere that stocks Buzz Bee will have it.

Hope that helps folks! Till next time!

  1. You should drill out the vent holes in the barrel shroud. It’d up the realism by a lot.

    • I invented that move! lol
      I would have on this also, but on looking at where the inside nozzle was going to be once reassembled I opted not to due to the size of the holes. I might on the next one though to see how it looks ;p

  2. Where did you get that watergun from? We really need one for a short film!

    • Just in a regular department store, perhaps Kmart or Target from memory 🙂
