TechWolf's Weapons.... (Pic Heavy)
« on: Apr 05, 2019, 04:16 PM »
I have plans for a heavy weapon, sword or dagger, and a pistol.

The heavy weapon is going to be a Baze Malbus backpack style, with some personal touches.


I still have a lot of modding to do on the gun, but I plan on using the clip as the connector for the belt

I'm still working on the others to come up with a pistol I like, and if i should have a dagger or a sword.

You're going to need a lot of work to remove the 'Nerf'-iness.  I look forward to seeing where this goes.

Here's my concept for the powered pack and charge belt. I still think it may be missing something, but i can't place it at the moment




Also, what's everyone's opinion on this type of sword? I plan on doing a Tsuka-maki Wrap using the colors from my armor for the hilt instead of the corded wrap

The blade isn't distinctly Earthy in shape, so it should make a decent model for a Beskad/ vibroblade.  Obviously, make sure you're copying the blade into a more friendly material (Sintra and acrylic are great for making simple blades).

I plan to make it out of Sintra

*Edit: Reading up on the rules for nerf mods, I realized that I need to remove the vent cover.

Running into an issue with my sword not being ridged enough. I'm using 1/4in sintra and it flops like it made of rubber.

Any tips on using something at the core or strengthening it?

For sintra-based swords, what I find works best is laminating with multiple layers of sintra. Most of mine are three layers glued together with PVC pipe glue to bond on the molecular level, and then shaped on a belt sander to get the profile I want.

It's been a while, but I finally have one of my weapons completed

Still working on the others and adding a few more as I get the inspiration. Hopefully  more update will follow soon :jango: :boba:

Update on my wife's rifle:

Still some obvious modding needed, but I finally have the base look I was going for. :jango: :boba:

Once I got started on one blaster, I just kept going. Now that I have a 3d printer I keep working on so many more. Each time I make one, I think of another one to do.

Custom Blurrg-1120 holdout blaster


Kinda like an A-180 blaster pistol


My first custom DE-10 made with my 3d printer

Custom DE-10 #2


Random custom blaster (Not sure if there is something that it can be matched with)


More coming, including a Westar-35 i designed for my 3d printer as well
