    That's Right, It's
    ​RICO's Puzzle Gun


    One of the first projects that I had in mind when I started doing 3D modelling and printing was to make my own replica of this prop gun that Rico uses in the jail:

    So back then I came up with a simple design and it looked like this:

    I felt it was finally time to revive this project. But I wanted to do the whole prop (or as close to it as I could) complete with this functionality:

    The first step was sprucing up the gun part, and making it so that they could interlock, here's what I came up with:

    Closed:
    [​IMG]

    Open:
    [​IMG]

    Exploded:
    [​IMG]

    I also added some thickness to the back and devised a way to interlock another piece:

    Then I went looking to a RICO badge pattern, or even a DREDD pattern from the 95 movie. Sadly, it was not to be found, I found 2 pictures of someone's homemade badge but that was it.

    So I made my own, along with the tray the badge and photo sit in, and a box to clip onto the back, here's how it's turned out:

    Exploded:
    [​IMG]

    Open:
    [​IMG]

    Closed:
    [​IMG]

    So here's how the pieces connect to each other:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And in the open configuration with the Badge Box attached:
    [​IMG]

    It may be a bit before I can have these printed up due to cost, but it will happen.

    I'd appreciate any comments or opinions that anyone is willing to share about this project.

    Also, does anyone have the right picture for the reporter Vartis Hammond, I have my crappy screenshot:
    [​IMG]

    And this photo that is different but of him:
    [​IMG]

    I can't find any other photos of him that are close to the reporter pic from the prop.

    This project looks amazing, I hope that you get a chance to complete it.
    Maybe you could photoplasty up a picture of reporter Vartis Hammond from other photos of Mitchel Ryan?
    GIS doesn't seem to be much of a friend for finding a picture of him as the reporter.
    What I always thought was a bit odd is that the character's name is Rico Dredd, but his badge didn't have "Dredd" on it...

    nice work....i always wondered if the close box actually did open to make the gun.....or was it special effects

    Hadn't seen this movie in years and it was on the night. I totally forgot about this prop and instantly thought it would be super cool to have as a replica.
