 Arctic Sniper Rifle Idea - New Update 23/06 (More Pics)

  • 5 Replies

Good Day Vod's

I have drawn out the shape and length of the Arctic Sniper Rifle build that i feel comfortable i can carry.

Can i get your honest opinions please.



There will be 3 holes in the stock.   The top 2 will be housing for heat exchanges and wires etc (as going for Arctic feel)
The length from stock to end barrel is probably about 4.5 to 5 feet long.
I will be attaching a Sight to the top and most probably a Bi-pod
Maybe an under rail as well to house further heating or maybe the ammo.

Anyway's thanks for your input

Cheers

So heres an Update as of Today

Design Cut-Out



Main Stock Cut-Out



Thickness of Stock





As i am aiming towards an Arctic Sniper Rifle i've created a heating element system to keep the barrel operable



And at a closer look its parts from a dead PC and also some left over plumbing bits

Just a quick update.

I have cut out more of the wood to make it flow better.   And I also need to blend the front wooden piece to the main stock.

I have also initially created the Scope, this is just an initial idea though.
And then find and attach more greeblies.

The white hosing from the back cut-out piece will be the heating tube to keep the barrel warm from the "Arctic" climate
The 3 identical cartridges/cannisters will be the fuel housing cartridges for the heating element

So what do you guys think?





I know there is still a lot to do:
   Filler, Sanding, Smoothing, Shaping, Painting, Weathering etc etc

Hope you like it

Cheers

Just a quick update today
Unfortunately i have not had much time recently to do much work on any aspect of my Mando builds.

Here is where i am up to so far with my rifle.

Left Side, will attach minimal Greebs to this side





Right Side, will have a lot more showing Greeble wise, due to the heating chamber and the fuel canister slot, and the dual canister holder.   You may have remembered this from my previous post where i roughly place them on the surface





What i have done if its not noticeable is body fillered the Barrel into place and also joined up any irregularities between the 2 pieces of wood at the join part.   Once i had done a few applications i then let it dry for a few days then went at it with sandpaper and sander.

Now these next set of photos are just the same as above but i cleaned t down and added a slight coat of chrome paint, just to highlight to myself any further imperfections that i need to fix or to highlight areas where it can be improved

Left Side (Chromed)





Right Side (Chromed)






I know i need to rasp file the grip to give it "Grip Definition" and also to help me carry it better as its too smooth at the moment.
And the chrome has pointed out a small number of touch up areas that i need to filler.  The back end of the Barrel needs neatening up as well.   i will also potentially put some white "Weathered" webbing around the front end, just to tie it all in with my overall look

Please feel free to point out anything that looks wrong or needs adding/changing, or even to say its good.
All replies are always appreciated.

Cheers

Looks good to me. You can definitely tell its a long range weapon without that non-swarzy feel to it.

keep up the good work!
