My scratch built SWG laser carbine WIP...
« on: Sep 19, 2015, 10:41 PM »
Just figured I'd add all of my WIPs in one location for easier access...
Helm WIP
Armor WIP
Gauntlet WIP
Pistol WIP

So after I built my SWG FWG-5's, I've been going back and forth on if I wanted a rifle/carbine or just rockin the 2 pistols.  We I just kept coming back to the idea of having all 3, so I broke down this weekend and started building it.

This is what I'm going for... SWG Laser Carbine


What I started with...


Started cutting...







Here's where I'm at after today's work...


Still got a lot of sanding, some bondo, trigger, scope and lots of detailing to do.  But I'm happy with the progress so far.

Thanks ConDar.  ;D

Here's a few updated pics from today's work.  Its getting there, but still a lot of work to do.  Next on the list is to finish the stock and a few more details before I come back and clean everything up w/bondo...

Nice work! What did you use to make the trigger and trigger guard?

Thanks vod.  The trigger guard is made out of sintra and the trigger itself is made from some scrap leftover boards I had laying around (I believe it was poplar 0.25-in x 6-in x 24-in).  Cut a small piece out, put a groove in the wood/pistol grip where I wanted it to go and glued it in place.  Pretty much same as I did in my pistols, and they have a few more pics.  You can see it here...

Few more updated pics from the last few days.



And this is after the first round of primer so I can see where I need to go back and touch up.

Update time.  I finally decided on paint for this.  I went w/a soft iron color from Rustolem.  I have to say, it turned out way better than I was expecting.




I've started detailing, weather and painting the grips/stock/scope.  Still a little ways to go but here's how it stands...


It's still a little shinny for me, but I think with a good black wash it will tone it down a lot.

Gave it a good black washing today.  Tried to get some decent grime build up.  I wish all the wear would show up in the pics better.  These pics just dont seem to do it justice.  Either way, I think she's done... at least for now  :P




And the original I was trying to duplicate.
