Would you be able to make this with 110lb card stock (letter sized), or would that be too much?

Hoborginc Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2017
I haven't tried 110lb, so I don't actually know. It may be a bit difficult to bend some of the smaller-scale curved faces, and some things might not match perfectly, but I don't expect there to be any serious problems that can't be resolved with a minor adjustment here or there.

Different software calls it differently. Just make sure it doesn't leave anything off the page.

Not sure. I haven't messed with the quality settings and it works fine. Try it with different levels and pick the one you like best.
If it's thick paper, it should handle the ink just fine. Just let the paper dry a bit before cutting.

Of course. I was wondering because the cartridge came out not quite the right color. Very dull actually.

Ah, got it. Not sure why. Perhaps it's possible can locally adjust the files in an image editor and make the colors brighter to compensate.

It doesn't really matter, as long as the weight is right. For example, right now I'm using Strathmore watercolor paper, and it works just fine.
But overall, I use the ones that come in 9x12" books (glued, not spiral-bound) and cut each one down to 8.5x11."

0. Use paper of the right thickness (around 90lb/180gsm)

1. Score all fold lines before cutting out parts. Use blunt edge of scissors to prevent from cutting too deep.

2. For a curved surface, rub it against the corner of the table to develop a gentle curve.

3. Hold things as they dry, to prevent them from expanding and coming undone.

4. Be careful and keep at it. Practice, repetition, and attention to detail are key.

While nobody can stop you from using regular printer paper, I'm afraid it will deform and droop quite easily.

I'd recommend some thick paper. Look in the hobby store's paper section and find something with a thickness around 90lb or 185g. That's what it's designed for, after all.

It's just that I don't have my tools with me, so I can't print, build, or photograph anything at the moment. I'm just taking an average of several minutes a day to work on patterns. I'm hoping to get a chance to finish everything properly in late April.

It's kind of like the Jackal and Casual. It's Luke Valentine's weapon from Hellsing. It's a modified M1 Garand. It looks like it has a sawed off barrel and a short stock so it can be held like a pistol. I have no idea how to replicate the mechanism of a Garand.

:iconhoborginc:
Hoborginc Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015
Have you found a Garand papercraft to work off? If not, you could always lift some parts from an M14. Of course, I don't think they're too mechanically detailed on that model, but anything can be an example to use as a starting point.

I don't know much about the details of the Garand's mechanism, but if you're going for just minimal moving parts you don't need to go into that much detail. All that's really necessary is to make the trigger moveable (in the same way as the pistol you just built) and make the bolt moveable. Replicating its locking mechanism and the way it interfaces with the operating rod would probably be too troublesome, so just combine the two into a single part, make sure there's a specific interior space for it to move in (this will require the parts around it to be thick, instead of a completely hollow shell), and find a way to attach a recoil spring (optional). Note that the Garand's recoil spring is in front of the bolt, so the bolt/operating rod will need to extend forward and hold the spring form the front (like on a pistol).

The only problem is that the Garand's bolt rotates into the horizontal when pulled back, allowing it to fit under the back of the receiver. You'll either have to replicate that rotation by making it a separate part from the operating rod (and adding an angled track that guides its rotation in accordance with its forward movement), or else just make the back of the receiver taller to give it enough space. Or, as a compromise, you can hinge it so that instead of rotating it simply angles downward. This last solution is the one I've included in this diagram.

(So far I've been ignoring the loading mechanism. If you want to be able to insert the en bloc clip, you'll have to make an additional hollow space for it, and figure out something to get around the fact that because the bolt is designed to push cartridges from the clip, it would not be able to close on the model unless you reduce the size of the clip (placing the cartridges lower, as on my pistols), or allow the to be pushed into the chamber (necessitating a hollow chamber an an extraction mechanism on the bolt).)

Here's a high-res image of complete and disassembled Garand for parts reference.

How to make small hollow spaces inside a complex shape like a stock? Split the stock in half, and divide each half into simpler parts. When they're glued together, cover them with an exterior face to conceal the seams. Refer to my SCAR stock as an example: it needed to be a boot shape, with a cylindrical channel down the middle and a square cavity at the back with a smaller square opening on one side. The solution was to reduce it to smaller parts, with each one being a fairly simple box with one or two curved or angled sides, and then to put an exterior face over the outside.

If anything, I'd be interested in both break-open and pump-action designs. I've disassembled and reassembled the latter, but I haven't tried to design a model of it, and I don't have any familiarity with the former. If I sat down and worked on it, I could make a half-decent shotgun, but I'm more interested in solving the problems of my previous models before branching out into that field.

:iconacgearmaker:
ACGearmaker Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, but the size of the shotgun would be a problem. What about the short barrel shotguns? Would those interest you since they both can be short barreled and easier to make?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Hoborginc Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2015
Nah, the size would not be a problem. I'd just make it with an 18.5" barrel or something like that. I realize there's value in a short-barrel shotgun, but I don't have a particular desire to go in that direction. In terms of construction, I have a theory that a long barrel can be made sturdy by using multiple layers of overlapping tubes. Obviously it's is all just hypothetical for now.

I'm making a custom version using the files(thanks for those by the way) and I was wondering if the mechanism can simulate actual sliding if the trigger is pulled? I don't want it to actually fire paper bullets, but just get it close to enough to work like one.
