After selling this prop-replica on eBay, I built
one for my own collection. The one thing I
changed was the 'death ray' LED - I used a
bright yellow one in mine.  Since
Flash
Gordon's
Trip to Mars  was in B&W, there's
no way
to know what color the ray should
be - heck, it
was just white with squiggly
lines on-screen.
Larry "Buster" Crabbe as Flash Gordon in the 1938 movie serial  Flash Gordon's Trip To Mars.  Note the Martian ray gun in
Flash's hand.  And... yeah, the guy with the funny eyebrows is supposed to be a Martian.  Dig the crazy hat, man!
I'd give this photo copyright credit, but I've no idea who holds the rights to this vintage film now.

and, oh-m-gosh, girls had legs in 1938, who'd have
guessed, what with censorship being what it was back
then!

Though not 100% accurate, this full scale
replica is well detailed and true to the prop used in the 1938 movie serial
Flash Gordon's Trip To Mars (Buster Crabbe). The ray-gun is made of polycarbonate pipe, styrene plastic & brass tubing.
This LARP / COSPLAY prop was custom designed & built by model-maker Ernie N.  It is one-of-a-kind.
