What do you think? It's made from old computer boxes and plastic packing.. I was bored at work one day.. Finished folding all my pep files and tackled the AR.. Its resin, painted, and lighted.. :D

what was your construction techniques? it looks like you may have resined the cardboard?

Looks great, although the shroud is a bit too round.

Thanx, well it's not as detailed as I wanted it to be.. It was only done in a 2 days.. Considering I had time at work and could not possibly do any resin or body work in my office.. It's not supposed to be perfect anyway since it's a temp weapon.. Plus, everyone out there who hold it in pictures or looks at it for 5 minutes could not tell the difference... It's fun when you are taking pictures, you give people a weapon to hold.. They get excited and make mean faces like YEAH!! FTW!! :lol:

Appreciate the complimet Cheech... Since then, I added another set of Led's on the opposite side.. I didn't notice that lights were on both side untill I started playing halo 3 again haha LOL.. :lol: I was like DURR!! Anyway, I'm currently making my needler.. ;) Just use your imagination and run with it.. I'm sure you will be amazed with your skills.. I went into this with no background either!! Goodluck, ask me if you have any questions or need help!! :)

The whole process was a total Mcguiver.. Just thrown together with a bunch of stuff laying around the office.. Just look at the weapon and try to see what you have around the house.. Easy thing is cardboard. From there, just see what fits and put it together.. I had no idea what I was doing but and it came out pretty well considering it ws a rush job to compliment my costume for halloween.. Now Go Get started!! ;)
