All right, with the mattock just about done and the weather not being ideal for paint, I embarked on a personal project.

This is my favorite SMG from all of the mass effect guns so I wanted to give it a go. This is about 7 hours worth of work.

Complex bevel: 45 degrees to 30 degrees to 20 degrees. no dremel involved!



Top rail beginnings



Side panel


progress:



Did I mention the grip is friggin tiny? (yes, this is the correct size.)

Thanks you two!


Haha I still dont even know if I'm molding it! I'm not sure if I'll be doing any trades though, I typicaly like to build my own stuff as you can see :) (I'm also pretty anal about scale and if I build it, I can scale it to my other guns)

This thing is gonna take the backseat for a bit. The mattock is just about ready for primer/bondo!

Absolutely gorgeous! :D Your attention to detail is very nice. :D
Thank you sir! I hope these upcoming photos assist you on your talon build.

Ok, so avoiding more dremeling and bondo for a while, I did more details. This is day three. (trying to keep track of time more precisely to give clients more accurate quotes)

did the little bits near the barrel tip, as well as the barrel tip itself.



as well as the "spine" of the grip, and the bolt housing.



Then I added a few details to the top rail, and enlarged some of the bevels using a dremel to take down the hard edges, and hand sanded 80 grit and 150 grit for the rest. It went rather fast, but I have the whole rest of the gun to go. There are a ton of fillets and bevels all over the place.







Thats all folks!

Very nice! Quick question though, did you build up this gun out of layers of MDF of 0.5cm or 0.2 inches thick? The outmost layer is about half of that I guess?
