    Alright guys. This will probably be the last update before i complete the rifle and post the finished product. Most of the paint is done!

    What is left:
    - Finish the barrel
    - Ammo counter (make it and wiring)
    - Mounting the scope (placed for pic)
    - Remaining paint & further detailing

    Thanks again for all the feedback and tagging along, guys! Remember to ask me any questions you may have.

    Wow just came across this thread, and I gotta say that is some amazing work. The details are flawless especially on the scope but yeah looking good so far, cant wait see it with the barrel!

    Thanks! Glad i went with the custom route for the scope. Ties it in better than a look-alike scope off ebay, being accurate and all. I have a few designs for the barrel currently. Deciding between PVC pipe cut into the shape, or a transparent tube with foam built around it to give the illusion of the prongs/flashhider.

    I like the idea of wiring an ammo counter into it. Nice touch.

    It looks really good now that it isn't lego-colored :DI'm hoping to finish my H2A br blueprint in the next few weeks, so I can hopefully start working on mine. I'm interested in seeing what you come up with for the ammo counter. Will it be static or will it actually count?

    I couldn't find any blueprints for this! I eyeballed the whole thing. Haha. Thats usually what i do for everything i build anyway. The counter's going to be static. I dont care much for it being so sophisticated. Aslong as it lights up, and looks accurate, we're good to go.

    I can't do builds without blueprints. I just need some form of direction to get it going :/

    Looks great with paint mate. You do have a suit to match it, right?

    I enjoy drawing a rough sketch first and then measuring everything into proportion! To each his own, man.

    Hey guys. I was watching a Halo video just now and saw the Halo 2 style BR55 with a flashlight under the barrel, like how the Halo 3 BR has that second gastube under or whatever. What do you think? I'm digging the way it looks, but i need a little more input before i start chopping. Considering im pretty much done with the rifle. Let me know! Would it be a good addition?

    I think it looks pretty cool, but I wouldn't say it's worth the time to add. If you don't mind I'd say go for it, but otherwise, I wouldn't say there's any reason to go out of your way to add it.

    Outstanding! The simple additions to the scope give a nice completion to the profile. And the rivet's and bolts give a superb realism.

    I'll leave that to the next one then. I'm not up for slicing up the finish on the foam. Better safe than sorry. Thanks guys!

    I'll have a good quality picture up soon, guys! Just finished the ammo counter.

    Edit: ..and barrel, and paint. lol

    Okay! Here's a little photo shoot for you guys. I apologize for the red reflection on the rifle in some pics. I'm wearing a bright red shirt and it shines off of the rifle's metallic paint! Haha

    What's left:
    -Charging handle
    -light for ammo counter

    Hope you guys like the outcome and my method of creating one of the most iconic Halo rifles! I'm very pleased. Too bad i have to sell it. lol.
    Also, I will edit the original post to feature the completed rifle and bump the thread when i finish.

    Edit: Love this pic too.

    That looks really nice SierraJeep! I actually just finished a rather large non-halo project I was working on, so I think I'll be building my own soon!

    Well done! It looks amazing, hard to believe it's made of foam :) Is it lightweight too?

    Thanks! Sure is. Weighs around 2lbs! It still feels authentic holding it though so i decided not to throw in weights like i have in the past for other projects.
