Combat Shotgun Assembled

Alright! This was a fun one! Look how friggen' big it is! Well, if nothing else, it is a personal record, especially since it's entirely regular printer paper, no cardstock used at all. Ahhh, I so wish I had owned a sketchy hockey mask to wear in that last picture of me holding it.

It's the Combat Shotgun! This is another weapon from my ever-growing series of models from Fallout 3, a PC, 360, & PS3 game. You can read more about it on the wiki page I linked if you want, I'm too lazy to go into more detail than that ;).

My final build came out to be ~2' 8.5" (~82.6 cm) long :D, ~6" (~15 cm) wide, and ~7" (~18 cm) tall. Unlike the Laser Pistol and Alien Blaster, I decided to fix the scaling, making it closer to true "life-sized", since the difference would probably have been more significant given the overall size of it... Also, there's no stand included in the parts. I built the little rack shown as an afterthought when I realized, "Ok, now what do I do with it?" Ooo! Maybe I'll try to find a real gun rack! Hah, that'd be creepy.

I hope the irony of this isn't lost on any of you... making a model of a (mostly) wooden object out of paper... I'm entertained waay too easily.

You know, when I originally thought of doing a model from Fallout 3, I wanted to do Liberty Prime. I borrowed my friend's copy of the PC version, ripped the enormous mesh file, and found a tool to extract individual meshes. But one look at that model had me thinking yea, that's going on the back burner, let's start with something a little simpler.

I'll get to it eventually!.. probably... maybe... hopefully..?

I HATE TO TELL YOU THIS; but the le fusil Terribles had the barrel BEFORE that wooden grip
billybob884's avatar
this is the combat shotgun from fallout 3
vaulttecagent3298's avatar
Oh is that why the wooden fore grip is behind the drum mag because in FO4 it's in front
SIERRA-116's avatar
Because the FO3 Combat Shotgun was a very bad design mechanically.

Hey man, did you use pva or superglue or prit stick ? 
billybob884's avatar
Nah, just Elmer's glue (I assume by calling it a prit stick you're from Europe, Elmer's is a childrens-grade water-soluble craft glue). You could probably use a glue stick or something similar, you certainly don't need super glue or anything heavy duty.

SO THIS is what happens i you cross a AA12 and a PPSH-41

You wouldn't happen to sell them already made, eh? If not its fine, thanks for your time :)
billybob884's avatar
Hah, nope. For the amount of time they take to assemble, they'd be prohibitively expensive. Sorry!
