    Hi everyone.
    i started making props and costumes about 5 years ago or something like that. But they were all amature level.
    So i decided to make a portal gun, and trie some mor profesional ways of making it.
    i'm planing on making molds for front barrel, front and back sections of shell.

    this is what i have so far not ideal or super smoot or realy aurate but much more profesional looking pieces then props i have made before

    If anyone have some sugestions, or critique - i will realy apreciate that.

    Cheers

    for now only asembly is midle part, that can be asembled. front and rear shells needs to be molded if fiberglass to test fit, (or atleas in aluminum foil just to check how it gona look)

    Painted main barrel and rear shell in black base coat, both of them will get 2-3 more coats of black paint. barrel then get clear coat of laquer, and rear shell will be molded in fiberglass and polyester resin.
