"The M41A Pulse Rifle is an air cooled, fully automatic, short- to mid-range combat rifle. Made of light alloy plates, it fires 10x24mm Armor Piercing Caseless Rounds from a 100 round U-bend magazine in either semi automatic, four round burst, or fully automatic rates of fire. The magazines could only practically hold 99 rounds and were usually underloaded to 95% capacity to avoid jamming. The Pulse rifle has a small battery powered digital readout screen that displays number of rounds left in the magazine; the battery is located in the handgrip. With a retractable stock and an underslung 30 mm PN grenade launcher, this weapon can be used as a carbine and an assault rifle." http://annex.wikia.com/wiki/M41A_pulse_rifle Ive decided that I want a Pulse rifle (lol) and will be made from a heavily modded Nerf Stampede (which fires fully automatically from clips). Whats more its almost the right size and shape to be compressed into the paper craft Pulse Rifle from the esteemed Jan Rükr from http://aliens.humlak.cz/aliens/aliens_papirove_modely/aliens-m41_gb.html. Anything that cannot be cut and trimmed will be covered and disguised as well as I can manage. Once i have finished pepping (Which im using to keep me occupied at night while i wait for the weekends to work on the Fallout 3 power armour helmet) i will resin and test fit the shroud to get a better idea of what needs trimming. Then i will pour resin into the shroud pieces, seal the hole then rotocast it to get a nice even amount of resin on the inside. The layout will be damn close once i remove the battery pack from the stock. This can be replaced with 4AAs somewhere later as well as making an LED readout and sound module. (I have most of shroud parts complete but no photo as yet.) Watch this space.
