Total cost of a assault rifle and a few other things...


Well if you have already seen my last post you know what Im trying to do with the assault rifle, but im wondering the cost of them. I know theres ones for cost of armour, but thats not what ive got.

For a decent quality, assault rifle made out of fiberglass, cardboard, resin, and paint, how much would that run up to?

If all goes according to plan ill try to make a few other things, anyone know the cost of these?:

-Halo 3 Magnum
-Halo 3 Sniper Rifle
-Halo 3 Non-Linear Gallien Rifle (Spartan laser)
-Halo 3 Plasma pistol
-Halo 3 frag grenade

Time limit isnt much of a problem, ill work with them while I build my robots, so just about any time amount.

Also if its possible, is there any life sized blue prints of them? I found this excellant blueprint for the Gallien rifle, and made a great looking one out of posterboard and some paint for like 15 bucks, that I gave as a present, but is there any for any other guns?

it's very easy actually. Usually the hardest part is just figuring out how you want to finish the rifle (with bondo, "mud" etc)
