    What ho fellow Raiders!

    This thread will showcase my attempt at making a proper replica of the M8 Avenger AR from the Mass Effect games. This one below is the officially licensed replica, made by Trisoft and sold for 600-700 dollars:

    [​IMG]
    That's over 30,000 INR! I hope to make mine for less than 2k bucks :p Here are some pics of my work so far:

    Started off by drawing the gun on a piece of mount board. Took me over 30 minutes to get the shape right (The gun's 12x34" after all).

    A basic 2cm thick M8 was then made from cardboard, using the drawing for reference:

    Now I knew that my gun was, size wise, very accurate to the official replica. So I had the basic shape cut out from wood and covered with cardboard. The brown things are pieces of foam, they are pretty useful for detailing:

    The barrel region of the gun was then made from many pieces of cardboard. It's pretty strong:

    Femshep is staring at my work. I think she's not too impressed with how it looks right now. Can't really blame her, this thing is totally useless at repelling Reapers.

    That's all for now. More pics will arrive in a few days after I'm done detailing it. What do you guys think?

    The effect of those red lights can easily be produced by some clever paintwork. I've seen some homemade replicas of the M8 with no lights, just paint, and they look great.

    Le workstation has ample lighting, its just that turning all of them on makes the place hot. So I only use them when I'm doing work that requires lots of light.

    Thanks for the reps and the nice words! :D

    I'm as poor as a church mouse that's just had an enormous tax bill on the very day his wife ran off with another mouse, taking all the cheese.

    In my imagination, yeah I think. Or maybe I just talk to a table lamp or something and imagine that it's my wife.
