    People of the 405th I present the unfinished Jorge Chain gun. I am currently making this gun for my good friend Justin for Christmas, we recently made a trip to the local Game Stop and he sprung a fast one on me. We had gone in the store to look around, and he bought the Halo Reach Legendary edition for me totally catching me off guard. So I had to think fast, and this is the result.

    I still need to do all the the detailing/bondo work, along with the handles, barrels, and side mounted ammo box. Hoping the weather is nice tomorrow so I can get started on the bondo work.

    Tell me what you think, and if I should make any changes. :D

    That is one awesome looking scratch built chain gun! One thing you can do to make it look cleaner is to sand the edges of the foam parts and maybe fill in the gaps with paper mache. Then, sand the paper mache and coat it with mod podge before painting. That is what I did to my UNSC trooper armor. Other than that, I'm sure your friend Justin will be blown away by your chain gun! :)

    haha! This is great! I am seeing more and more people add EVA foam to their builds! But I am making mine out of cardboard!

    Thank you so much everyone! Well the weather was great today and I was able to apply a good deal of bondo, and will be sanding it down tonight.


    I am hoping tho that I am off again tomorrow, and the weather is just as fine!

    The EVA foam is a great gap filler I used it mainly because, I didn't want to have to copy so many shapes to get my thickness cut down on time greatly. Plus, I love how when bondo is put on the foam its almost like a football helmet hardness. Bends but not too much. Oh, and its light!

    Thank you for the tips! I haven't never tried my hand at paper mache, or the mod podge either, I will defiantly have to look into it in future builds.

    its coming along awesome dude. glad to be working on it with you and really appreciate you making it for me. i am sooo stoked to see it finished. need to get some shots showing how big it is in comparison to one of us. its pretty well to scale with what Jorge's gun is. need to get this knocked out and get back to work on completing our first set of gear.

    Sorry guys, and gals as of right now there are no update pictures I did get to slap some bondo on the gun before the temp droped to 30, and 40 degrees, nothing worthy of a picture tho. But we are working on a solution to the temp problem, first-up gazibo/windbreaker with heater. So expect some pics within the next week.

    I think he can be unscrewed from it.
    i has a noble team statue on mah shelf with all mah halo stuff,
    my legendary helmet, the better helmet i made, halo wars legendary stuff.
    And a crapload of figures, with some actionclix figurines as filler,
    oh, and an actionclix warthog. Wish i could afford the scarab.

    I'm with Patryn I hope the heater works out because this beast deserves to be finished so that all may see it's glory. Looking forward to it, keep up the awesome work!
