My AER14 Prototype Laser Rifle from Fallout:New Vegas. I crafted this from foam board, craft foam, fish tank tubing, PVC,sharpie and highlighter caps, magnum sharpie, wire, scrap electronic mother boards, metal coat hangers( for inside the tubing to help keep its shape) amazing sculpt and various other bits of trash. It could still use a bit more weathering and a new Microfusion cell but it looks okay for now.
