    Mar 21, 2014, 8:54 PM - W.I.P. Alvarez Shotgun. #1

    Hi Judges and Citizens, some already know about this build, and you have followed the process in the Brit-Cit group, I've seen the movie no longer the times,
    I started my costume this past summer and have been slowly gathering information and parts on Run's or I've been making for myself,
    then a week ago, I decide to look for information on the group and here in the forum, about the Alvarez shotgun, I found few references, since hardly goes a few seconds in the film, I saw that the weapon was a basis Frenchi Spas 12 and look for a Airsoft replica to start this project, the Judge friend Iain Souter, send me some pictures with some more detail, which have helped me a lot in developing..

    I hope you like my project In this prop.

    Reference Pictures:

    At this point, the sliding load is very long and must be cut and adapted to the shape you see on screen.

    They have been a couple of very intense weeks working in spare time, there are still minute details, to fill remaining holes and once completed, prepare a mold for making a rubber or resin kit..

    Loved your posts on the FB Brit-Cit page and really digging all your WIP photos on here. Great job man!
    Are you going to be offering casts of these here on the RPF?

    That's pretty cool man. Looks great actually. Doing a cast would be a great idea. I think you'll find that every judge is going to want his own shotty.

    That is some truly impressive work; well done, dude!

    Come to think of it, I had bought a Nerf gun not too long ago for a cosplay, but since then, I've had no real use for it. Then upon stumbling upon this thread, I figured that with enough modification, this Nerf shotgun could also work as a nice base for that shotgun from Dredd 2012:
