    Hey everyone! So I started getting into props and making things more and more this past year, i started seeing a lot of guns that people make online and costumes and i wanted to give it a go myself. After a lot of research and googling i decided to go with the Thorn Gun from Destiny the game. Since i am a huge fan of the game. :) Me and my bro bought a 3D printer about a year back so we decided to print one up that we found online. The design was posted up by a man named KIRBY DOWNEY who has posted several files for print. SO THANK YOU TO YOU GOOD SIR!
    After printing and putting it together, i decided to mold and cast. i know there is already a lot of Thorn Guns out there already that people have made in the past, but i liked this one a lot since it has a working trigger and spinning barrel and i figured id learn a thing or two a long the way. So here are some pics of the progress, i have been at this for about 2 months now on my spare time. First thing i learned, its expensive to mold! lol Let me know what you think!

    HERE IT IS FULLY ASSEMBLED AND PUT NEXT TO A RULER FOR SIZING :D AND THE BARREL OPEN WITH BULLET. DETAIL IS STELLAR!
    BELOW ARE PICTURES OF THE MOLDING PROCESS FOR THE MAIN CANNON PART, I PUT THE TWO PIECES TOGETHER WITH MAGIC SCULPT, SANDED, PRIMED AND SANDED SOME MORE. THEN I MADE THE BOX OF FOAM BOARD AND FILLED IT WITH CLAY, THE OTHER PIECES WERE DONE THE SAME WAY, I JUST DONT HAVE ANY PICTURES OF THE MOLD ON THOSE YET, ILL TAKE SOME AND UPLOAD THEM ALSO.

    Looks like some good pulls and nice work. What was your method for removing the print lines? Lots of sanding and filler primer? I am still working on a less labor intensive method to reduce the lines... but little progress has been made.
