Hi all,

Just to post some pics of my blaster rifle/carbine. i always get too excited/focussed when I'm building so I don't have any WIP shots  :-X

Base is an airsoft sniperrifle ( LW96 I think ) with the bolt action removed ( well, the bolt part at least ), a sintra plate covering the front and magwell, a PVC tube as barrel and a paintjob. Some greeblies were added to break up the lines a bit more.


Rightside overview.

And Jaig eye at the front.
Good view of the central greeblie. It's a product of 3 pieces ( inkholder for tattooist, body of an electronic flickering candle and a plastic part of a babyfence )



Left side overview:
Jaig eye and a copy of the central greeblie.



Weathering was done using metallic airbrushpaint but sponged on, this gives me alot more control as to where and how much weathering is done. I kept a carefull eye on heavy usage areas ( grip, etc ) and edges. Forgot one of the central greeblies though -_-'.

comments?

Thanks for the replies vode.

Boomstick is heavy though, comes in at around 3 Kg ( 6lbs ). Really need to get a sling for it, my arm hurt from a 1 day troop :')

Butch up, vod. :laugh:

Outstanding kit bash, vod.  I've wanted to chop an airsoft sniper into a carbine for some time, but have been too busy with not having the money to do it.  Nice to see someone else build something solid on this concept.

Very nice vod! I'm a firm believer in carbines. :)  If you're not finished with it, I would suggest adding a short scope scout style (over top of the barrel). I think it would enhance the look. Otherwise, rock solid sir.  8)

Thanks Vode :)

A scope is still in the works, which is why I left the tactical rail ontop.
