if you dont like reading, you can watch the video i made about this build


ive always loved the mass effect trilogy and i thought that i make a rifle from the franchise so i picked the M8 rifle. soo having some idea to make it i rushed into it and well i didn't end well.

So with more research i now have an idea what i am doing so heres my progress

I started with volpins blueprints and traced in on some MDF

Heres a rough cut of all the pieces

I ended up recutting some pieces to fit perfectly especially with these pieces

Now that all the pieces are cut out i decided to make all the pieces removable to make it easier to work on. This is will be the main chassis

Let the glueing begin

It took me forever to get these pieces right and perfect

Re: mass effect m8 avenger assault rifle

It looks pretty good to me so far. Only weird part is the size of the hole in the stock. Is that based off the blueprint?

At any rate, looking forward to seeing how it looks finished. I made an Avenger out of EVA a few months back. Came out pretty good, but I'm looking forward to the day where I have the tools to work with wood (or rather, MDF). You get a lot more control when it comes to sanding.

I stated to do some of the detail on the barrel
It probably took an hour to get every detail line right and semantical
y7uqaqun.jpg

ehuzypav.jpg


Its kinda hard to see but i did some carving
byvunyta.jpg


The vents were the hardest detail on the gun to carve. After a failed attempt to carve with my dremel i filled in with some filler
saqeqa8a.jpg

yvy5u4ys.jpg


i was stumped so i woked on the the little box instead
agedu2u2.jpg

eju2u3uv.jpg


Then i worked on the stock
2upemy5a.jpg

uzutuha8.jpg


So have time to think i had a plan on how to carve the vents using a router but i need to practice a little
dedejupu.jpg

Not so bad i also wrote my name
dugusy6y.jpg

So time to man up and start carving.

Re: mass effect m8 avenger assault rifle

Looks good. did you use A router attachment for a dremel?. or a regular router. and I bet it was tough going around that curved edge...
Going great can't wait too see more.

I just used a regular router and let me tell ya it was very nerve wrecking! Especially going around those curves

Re: mass effect m8 avenger assault rifle

Did a little work as there was little to do so i carved some details on the side panels
6y6u4y4a.jpg


And did some detail work on the stock
6ype7yba.jpg


So after that i decided to screw in every piece but be able to take them off
nyjepegy.jpg


These are just temporary screws there a little too big from the ones in the game. Also the the piece at the front was just taped in because my drill ran out of battery. The barrel still needs a little work but that will be later.

Might even consider molding this gun what do you guys think?
