    ALL FINISHED!!!!! See the following post for pics of the pieces and a finished model:

    http://www.therpf.com/showpost.php?p=834777&postcount=88






    A friend pointed out to me that the creators of Witch Hunter Robin have made a new show called "Ergo Proxy". i checked it out and am hooked, great story, great visuals and ofcoarse.....cool weapons.

    So, i decided that i need to make some of the props and start with the first gun which i have named:"Proxy Killer"

    I am almost finished with the barrel and for the rest of the gun, a great friend has offered me to mill the parts out of resin, which will make it look supercool and will save me mucho time. There are 2 other guns, a shotgun and a weird gun. The shotgun is pretty standard, but the second gun is very cool as well and i will be working on that one once the "Proxy Killer" has been completed.

    The gun appears to be very different in size in every single screenshot and the details differ as well. So, i did what i always do when building anime stuff: Take the best of everything. I was also surprise to see that the actual gun is quite a big one. Because of the shape it looks small in the screencaps, but when i scaled it to fit in my hand it turned out to be pretty big due to the massive grip on this thing.

    below are some screenshots of the gun i am working on, the barrel and a screenshot of my 3d models of the parts i did in Rhino.

    Anybody else following the series?If not, and you are a fan of anime and witch hunter robin, you have to check out the series.

    Wow, looks like you've got most of it designed already.

    I've been watching and capping. :) What's the third gun you mentioned? The Halos soldiers' rifles?

    When I first saw it, I thought Real's gun (the Proxy Killer) looked quite similar to the Blade Runner blaster.

    The third gun (and the one i want to build after the proxy killer) is the weird gun Vincent uses the most. Later in the show he uses a standard revolver, but in the first episodes he uses this one:

    I used a P2P program to download the episodes. I watch the [Shinsen] release, excellent translation and the videoquality is very good.

    from 'anime news network:

    Plot Summary: In a world where humans and androids, known as autoreivs, live in relative peace, there exists a domed city named "Romdeau". Under the implementation of complete management control, it is a paradise where feelings are literally discarded, and the governing council dictates the way of life the citizens should live. But this utopian landscape is soon broken by a series of mystifying murders. Real Mayar, a female inspector from the Citizen Information Bureau, along with her autoreiv partner Iggy, are tasked to solve the murder cases. She is soon attacked by a creature drawn to her which is neither human nor android, and learns about the mysterious phenomena called "Awakening", an event which draws her further into the case...and to the world beyond the limits of Romdeau.

    The Orbo Gun is a kit that Marc made himself.

    It's a * FINE kit... Posideon never made an Orbo gun.

    Nice buildup Kylash :)

    Here's a pic of one i made for a client:
    [​IMG]

    With the new technologies that are becoming available to me in the coming year, i will be able to make more Anime weapons of fairly good quality. Besides the other Ergo Proxy gun and the big Orbo pistol, i also have the 9-weapon from GITS and a gun from dirty pair in the plans. You can also look forward to an Akira specimen cylinder in the future.

    I just watched the first epi of this. Beautiful animation, but does it get any easier to tell what the hell is going on??

    They don't seem to explain anything. Seemed kinda like a GITS ripoff, too.

    KIP: thanks for the caps, there were a couple i didn't have yet :)

    Yeah, it takes a couple of episodes to get the hang of it, but i had the same thing with witchhunter robin.

    As for the gun from Gantz (another favorite), yes, i plan on doing that one too and i have already started on a 3d model some time ago, totally forgot to mention that one.

    yup thats the shot, but a much better res pic there, ill make afew changes, thanks..

    EDIT: Changes made, thanks soo much. I could read all the text so its 100% now. Also got a better look at the watermark, and I believe its the image hologram thats above the council, i think its a map of the city, anyway thats what I used. Here's a hi-res. Would be an awsome companion piece to this Proxy-killer gun :D

    Hi Guys,

    been a long time since i was able to get some decent online time since my move to Wales. It has been rough so far and i still don't have broadband from BT after 4 weeks of them trying to figure out what the problem is, so it's dial up for me at the moment. This project is not dead, as you can see, i have improved the 3d model and just need to do the part that goes on the bottom of the clip. Hopefully i'll have it done soon and my friend in the US will have time to CNC mill it out of resin for me.

    hanger is also being worked on. Just finished episode 15 myself, have to wait till i get my broadband to download more episodes, i hate waiting :(

    Cheers,

    Marc

    Hi Marc,

    Any updates on the Proxy Killer project? Anyone have any ides on Real's gun in episode one? It looks like a pump shot gun. Is it based on a specific weapon?

    Regards,

    alrighty, after watching all episodes, taking what i liked best of basicly a lot of different versions of the same gun, i have completed my 3D model. Now let's hope my buddy Rob will have some sparetime to mill the pieces out of resin.
