Hello all. I feel so left behind what with all the new style weapon props contained within these pages. But here I go.
I started this personal project a while back just because I think the m6 series of sidearm has a very visceral look and feel to it and like all of the UNSC weaponry appears very feasible. Aside from the size of the thing I can easily see some armed force out there fielding the m6g into battle. I had progress going at a pretty good clip when I heard that Halo:REACH was in the works. I got a look at some of the gun goodness screen-caps from the game and fell into a depression, because I promised myself that this time I would not start second project until I was finished with the first. As a result The project got stalled shortly after I did the Hangul detail atop the slide.
The other day I friend came over, saw it on my desk remarked about how good it looked and asked me when I was gonna finish the disowned project. I could think of no good reason to start back up and so here I am posting WIP pics.
FYI The Project is: pink insulation foam sandwiched between foamcore with a thin coat of an acrylic gesso/white glue/baking powder 'putty' I mixed up then spackled on. With bits of styrene and ball bearings added. The only tools used were small rasps, sandpaper of various grit, exacto knife, and a jewelers file...(and my hands of course). Scale is based loosely,VERY LOOSLEY on Wizard of Flight excellent diagrams.
