    M-3 Predator Pistol Build EVA MASS EFFECT

    So after getting Mass Effect 3 I really wanted to make something form the universe into a prop.
    I have worked with EVA foam before but I have only made some basic armour.
    After seeing this on the 405th

    EVA Foam M-3 Predator Pistol (Mass Effect 2)

    Thought I would try my hand at it. Now it is the prototype. I have only done about 6hours work on it so far.

    I used these pictures as reference. I printed and cut out the template above.

    After cutting out the main body 3 times with a Hot Knife I got this

    The Blue EVA foam is Just a little bit thinner. It means I don't have to sand as much.It is also cheaper about half price.

    This is the main body hot glued together. Very rough it is just a test piece. I would like to eventually make and bondo a foam one and possibly mold it in the future.

    This is after I have done some Dremel work added the side pieces with hot glue. Also using a Hot knife other tips burning details into the foam.

    I was wondering if I could get any tips on working with EVA foam? Like how to get it really smooth and the best way to detail. Any information Is much appreciated.

    THANKS FOR LOOKING.
