    I haven't even started on my own armour yet and I'm working on another weapon. In another thread that I posted, I am working on a Silenced Magnum from H3 ODST. Keeping with same theme I have now started with the SMG from the same game. Once again I am using a template made by AndrewDFT.

    After curing out my shapes I put them together to make sure things lined up. Looks like my templates shifted cuz I had some trimming to do.

    As people who work with foam floor mats know, the material is not exactly very a very stiff. I cut some grooves and glued in some dowels to make skeleton to keep this puppy from flopping around.

    Looks promising, considering you already made that awesome magnum! I never thought of dowels, thats a pretty neat idea for stiffening up layers of thick eva foam. Smart! I'll be stealing that idea if i ever build something using mostly floor mats again. Goodluck!

    UPDATE: it seems my can of contact cement has coagulated and turned into a ball of snot. So here is a photo of the SMG mocked up. I am using a cardboard tube for the suppressor and will wrap it in 2mm craft foam . I am deviating from AndrewDFT's design. Instead of scoring the foam and heating it to make details, I will use 2mm foam for this. I will also add a rail on the top and place the hole scope on it.

    Nice work so far man. Hopefully it'll turn out as good (or better:D) than your magnum!

    UPDATE : finally got some contact cement and started assembly. Still need to bevel the edges around the stock. Add details to grips, add trigger and trigger guard. Also make rails and holo scope then, build suppressor. Still gots lots to do.

    It's past 3 am. Need sleep. Then more building!

    Wow. I got a lot accomplished today. Worked on my magnum and this one as well. Today was getting layers beveled and detailed. My cuts with my knife were pretty sloppy but, thanks to my handy dandy rotary tool I was able to smooth things out. IMAG0880.jpg IMAG0881.jpg IMAG0882.jpg

    Not much of an update. I haven't had much time to work on this. I just managed to get a trigger guard in. The suppressor isn't in securely yet. The second pic is the start of what will eventually be rails on the top for me to place the holo sight.

    Nice! I've always wanted to do a foam prop, but I've got so much other stuff on my plate.
    I'll be doing a foam DMR, and I really like your iron sight idea! I'll steal that idea, if you don't mind. :D
