Look what I've got.
Charon's combat shotgun from Fallout 3! The best new year present ever!
The best part was that I made it myself
The whole thing is made of paper, lots of glue, some sticky tape... and a lot of cursing
The papercraft model was designed by ~billybob884
and can be found here
. I just reproduced it to the best of my abilities.
It was clear that this model is not for beginners, but from the moment I saw it, my brain kept repeating 'want it, want it, want it'. Yes, I've never made a papercraft model before, but I thought that if I could make a 3 cm gun from clay
, than a life-sized shotgun wouldn't be a problem, right? Right?! Wrong. It was one of the most difficult things I've ever attempted to make. But nevertheless I managed. "All you need is just a little patience"(c) Gn'R. Well, maybe not a little, but a LOT. But the result is worth it. The shotty looks like a real thing, especially on photos.
