Expanding Zorim's Armory (Pic Heavy)
« on: Oct 21, 2012, 01:29 AM »
I need more weapons and accessories!

Here are more weapons and accessories in progress:


The pistols are some little airsoft AK-47s from a flea market. They were broken, so I snagged them for $1 each. I dremeled off the stocks and sights. I'm looking for something between these two:


PVC valve/joint things that will become grenades:

Bondo to fill the holes, will be sanding it down.

Came across this Macrobinoculars/Yavin Playset at the same flea market and thought for some reason they might make a good pair of Macrobinoculars:


Dremeled out the ends, where I'll but some welding visor scraps for lenses.

Those little AK's are nice... How big are the grips tho? You might need to add to them...

He does need to add to the grips, but only by a couple of inches. It should be a simple fix; some tote plastic, a little bondo and victory.

Awesome! I might "steal" the idea if I can find some little AK's like that...!!!  :D

While fiddling with the AK's last night, I found that the handle grip and the green fore grip are actually separate pieces from the main body. The handle can actually slide off and the fore grip unscrews separately. I may play around with that. And yes, definitely extending the grips.

I also forgot to add pics of this little bugger:






Found the Iron Man repulsor gauntlet at a Savers for $1. Between this and the gauntlet parts for my fiance's kit, it's a fine investment. :D I'll be popping and LED and a simple switch in it for a light up holocommunicator. I'm also looking at getting my hands on one of the translucent blue hologram figures to stick on top of it.

Progress happened!



Some scrap sintra and bondo to the bottom of the pistol grips.


And it fits my gloved hand.


I also filled in the magazine bays, and covered the back where I cut the stocks off.



I cut up some $1 plastic pipe fittings from Lowes to put on the sides, give it that laser-revolver look.



Sand down and glazing puttied the grenade ends.


And one of them had both of its caps slide in.  :-[
