    Just finished up my Recharger rifle from Fallout:New Vegas. I made it using pink panther foam insulation board, different thicknesses of craft foam, foam core poster board, fish tank tubing, Sintra, pic pipe and some vacuum tubes. To seal the foam, I used a 1:1 ratio of acrylic paint and elmers glue-all and brushed on 4 layers of it. It works pretty we'll to fill gaps. For larger gaps, I used DAP light weight spackle and sanded it down using Various grits of sandpaper. The base coat was done with Krylon smoke Gray, then I applied the turquoise paint, used licorice acrylic mixed with Windex for a blackwash and applied silver rub n buff. It took me 13 hours over the course of 4 days to finish this and I'm fairly satisfied with the result seeing how it was made all from scavenged materials as is the way I make the majority of my props. Enough talk, on to some pictures.

    Thanks! I go out of town for work a lot so I have very small time frames to build something. I'm no stranger though to taking a craft box with me and building something in hotel rooms.

    I love when simple materials are used for amazing projects!

    I'd love to know what you think your approximate budget ended up at?

    Since I scavenged or already had the items I had to Google going prices for the products I used. The Owens corning board is around 11, foam poster board is 5, craft foam is 6, the pvc is 4, acrylic paint and spray paint would be 5, vacuum tubes range but I would say 5, fish tank tubing 3 and the Sintra around 25 so 64 dollars to buy all the materials brand New but since it won't all be used,roughly 25 dollars worth of material.

    That's awesome!
    What was the length (or measurements if possible) of the rifle? I want to make one with a 3d printer (Gonna need to make it into parts...)

    It looks great. The bends around the radiator near the front are my favorite detail.
