New build, my attempt at foam :-P
Amazing work man. This is simply a beautiful prop. I can't wait to see it all painted up. How much does the thing weigh right now?

WHS Red vs. Blue Build WIP
Damn nice build and I think that observation about the Pillar of Autumn was spot on, I am positive Bungie used similar shapes and silhouettes for the UNSC aesthetic.
Well, good news everyone! It's done! Try to keep your eyeballs in your heads XD
Here we go.
I made the torch on the lathe, but I think I might also want to incorporate a small rail on the pump for 1" scope ring and a real flashlight.
I ordered an uncut, undrilled metal rail online and it was the perfect length. I was even able to drill holes in exactly the right places as they are in the game. (I noticed that from the first bolt, there are exactly 7 notched between each bolt. I see what you did there, Bungie)
The sights on this thing were actually really fun (and quite easy despite being so intricate) to make.
The last detail I added was the diamond pattern on the pistol grip. I made it by cutting out the rubber mat from the center console of my Tahoe XD!
That's it for now. Have I mentioned unveiling the finished product is my second favorite post of every thread I make? It feels good to share
Anyway, I'll be spending the next few days doing touch up work and getting this sucker prepped for paint so I can put up my favorite post!
Take care, everyone. I'll see you in about a week.
I FAILED WOOD SHOP IN HIGH SCHOOL.HOW'S THAT FOR IRONIC?
Holy smokes! That thing looks sooooooooo much better than expected!! It's amazing! You have some absolutely mind blowing skills.
Even without the ejection port thingy it looks great.
(maybe it wasnt an ejection port, I dont even care anymore)
Most people have fun destroying things. Some people have fun building things. I have fun building things, that destroy things.
