DNCustoms: Eva m8 rifle progress (day 1, 2 and 3)

The only perk of deciding SURE WHY NOT ILL MAKE MY OWN MASS EFFECT GUN THIS WEEK is that I happened to pick the most iconic one, and there are some great tutorials out there! Here’s the one I plan to work off of, and I thought it might be helpful for some of you guys too!

The post covers the construction, details on the painting can be found here

Work in Progress Wednesday!

With all the armor wrapped up, I finished the top coat and all the small details on the M8 Avenger. Minus adding some reinforcement to the grip, it came out really nicely! The prop is made from four layers of 10mm EVA foam, with the small details being made out of 2mm craft foam. The bolts are paper fasteners. The scope and the lower muzzle are small pvc fittings while the long barrel and the top muzzle are craft foam.


I have no words. *___*


Finished product. I’m really happy with the results, learned a lot from making it. Made entirely out of EVA foam, except for the barrel. That’s out of a broom handle. Took me a few days and lots of sanding. I’m gonna make a tutorial based on this, in Dutch, for my website, some time soon. I could translate it if anyone’s interested, but you’d have to ask.
