PM Mk16 SCAR-L by Hoborginc PM Mk16 SCAR-L by Hoborginc
Build a paper model of a third-generation FN SCAR-L assault rifle. Commissioned by rayegunn.
This model is 1:1 scale, consists of several distinct parts that can be disassembled, and includes some moveable components.
In addition to the rifle, an EOTech 551 holographic sight is included.

The complete model is 37 pages.

The download package contains instruction photos in addition to pattern pages in black, tan, and white.
PNG version (67.6 MB)
PDF version (40 MB)

Q: What kind of paper and glue do I use?
A: 90-lb or 185-g paper, and regular white paper glue. Tacky glue also works, and dries faster, but may have more volume.
The pages (1700x2200), while larger than a page, turn out the same size on letter and A4 paper if automatically resized to printable area.

Q: Can it actually cycle a cartridge like one of tacome1942's models?
A: No. The moving parts do not replicate 100% functionality, they're just there for appearances.

Q: Can I attach accessories from other models to the rails?
A: Sure. The rails are pretty close to 1:1, so it's even possible to put real accessories on them (although this isn't recommended because of weight).

Q: I'm having trouble with X part.
A: Ask about it via comment or pm. Also let me know if there are any problems with the files.

Q: There are holes missing on the upper.
A: Here's the corrected page: (Black) (White)

Q: The right wall of the upper is backwards.
A: Here are the corrected pages.

i noticed that while opening the pdf version of the template in Adobe Illustrator, the gluing pattern boxes disappear on multiple parts for the upper receiver. do you happen to know why this happens?

Not sure. I haven't tested it in Adobe Illustrator. Do you mean the wavy-hatched boxes? They were made in Inkscape using the "wavy" fill pattern. Maybe it's not a pattern that Illustrator recognizes.

is it possible to attach a sling?
Reply

Hoborginc Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2018
Everything is possible once, just like everything can be airdropped once. I wouldn't advise it, though, because the paper is too soft to withstand the pressures of a sling pulling on it. The sling loops might break off.

Sorry I didn't check comments for a while. You've probably already solved it.

One end of that part is supposed to be curved, but the tabs are incorrect: One of the tabs is continuous, when it's supposed to be split up into smaller segments.

On the construction images, 11 shows the completed butt in its original form, but, during the build process, I realized the front of it interfered with the button on the left side of the stock, so I added a cutout, visible in image 16. Apparently I didn't update the tabs correctly.

It's probably best to start with some of the simpler models. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes quite intuitive.

can it be made using foam boards?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Hoborginc Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2018
I'd recommend using paper (thick paper) to for the model itself, simply because foam boards are difficult to manipulate into precise shapes. However, you can definitely cut pieces of foam board an insert them into the paper pieces.
Just look through the construction images and determine which sections are best for this (the walls of the upper and lower receiver definitely come to mind). It may be difficult to put them in every component, but as long as you get them into the main ones, the sturdiness will be increased. Also put them in the magazine adn maybe the stock, although the latter may be a bit difficult because the stock is rather complex.

thanks for the reply, i prefer something more sturdy than paper.
one more thing, how should I print the layouts? is it ok to print it in A4 papers? or should I print it by the original size?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Hoborginc Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2018
Do not print it by original size, because original size is larger than the printer paper.
It's intended to be printed on 8.5x11" (letter) paper, but A4 is fine too, coming out at around 98% size.

Sorry for the late reply. Let's see, the accessories (EOTECH and foregrip) are all compatible with the same rails that the other models use. So is the rear sight, although it would be strange to see it on another gun.

The receiver is unique.
The pistol grip and magazine are also unique, because they are more realistically proportioned than the grips and magazines used on my third-generation M4 and M416 models. You could say they are a fourth-generation.
On my next model, the Mk12, I'll make an M16A1 receiver that will also use the correct grip and magazine proportions.

I'm glad you like it. If you're not used to papercraft, these can be pretty difficutl, so it may be worthwhile to get the hang of it with some simpler models to warm up.
Also, to make the folds cleaner, score the fold lines with the blunt edge of scissors before cutting out and folding.
After cutting out a part, I also recommend coloring the edges with a black (or red) marker so the edges look better on the end product.

yo...Hoborginc
i know you kinda busy
First of all  i wanna thank you for all the papercraft stuff you did
i got a suggestion to you...
instead keep cancelling your ak74 project...
why dont you share these people how to make papercraft with inkscape ??
with someone who know how like you,i think it will be easier if you gave us some tutorial...
im myselft already starting my beretta m9 project that still in proccess
im also new with this inkscape stuff
and i got some question which if you dont mind to answer it,
you might notice that m9 pistol slide got some curve on it,and i got a trouble making flaps and connector of the curved face u know..
how do you measure the length of the curved face since inkscape measurement tool just have a straight ruler?..
unfortunately i cant send you the file cause im using library computer..
and how did you know the correct size to make pistol front cap ??
and i got another question,permission actually.
In my campus,there's gonna be some kind of exhibition and im allready build most of your paperguns and mine ass well,my question is,can i bring your papercraft as my display ?? its just for show and i will not take any credit from your guns.
I hope you read this and thank you for making papercraft

and sorry with my english cause english is not my native languange :)

- Use a grid to make everything easier. Go to File -> Document Properties -> Grids, and set "Spacing X" and "Spacing Y" to 0.2 (inches), and "Major grid line every" to 5. Of course, you can change that to whatever you're comfortable with, but those are the settings I use because they perfectly match the grid paper that I had on hand, and since then I've simply kept them for consistency. If you "enable snapping" (there's a toolbar for this) and select "snap to grids" then things will naturally be aligned to the grid. You can then use the arrow keys to move things for more precise (but still consistent) positioning. When moving things, one push of the arrow key moves it by 2 pixels. So if you expand something by 4 points, pressing down arrow once and left arrow once returns its center to its original location. (use this to make circles larger or smaller while keeping them centered).

- Two ways to measure a curved face: 
1. If using a grid, make a 1-tile long rectangle (red), and copy and paste it along the curved edge, rotating them as necessary. Count the number of rectangles, and then the number of times you need to push an arrow key to cover the remaining space. Make the curved face that long.
2. Copy the shape and remove everything except the curved edge. go to Extensions -> Visualize Path -> Measure Path, and select "length." It takes a few seconds to think, but it will paste a number that shows the length of that path. 
Now, the length needed for the model may actually be different from the true geometric length, due to things like paper thickness. So it's recommended to test build it and adjust it.

- To make cylinders, multiply the diameter of the face/cap by π to get the circumference (the length of the exterior). To make a slightly bigger or smaller cylinder (e.g. to fit precisely inside or outside the first one) adjust the height/width, preferably by 4 pixels or so, and test build it to see if it fits. 

- Of course you can bring it to the display. I don't mind at all.

- In case you're curious, my normal settings for lines are 1.8 pixels wide. Use "fill and stroke" to assign colors. Lines (stroke) are typically 0-0-0 (red-green-blue), tab edges are 100-100-100, and if the part is tan, I prefer making the lines brown (75-50-25). Most parts that should be black are filled in 50-50-50, or 75-75-75 for dark gray. For tan, there are several colors that can be used, but generally the blue value should be fairly low and the red value should be slightly higher than the green value. You can also use the other ways of defining colors (e.g. hue-saturation-lightness) if you're more comfortable with them.

I don't have my traditional materials or previous builds with me, so I haven't made progress on it.
The most recent version of the patterns is slightly modified since the test build, but I don't know if the new changes are good or not, as I haven't made the second test build yet.
If you're interested, here are the SVGs: Ak-74 Svg

A lot of things are similar to the AKM so construction process is the same. Dimensions are slightly different, though. Other things that I remember are different: Receiver walls have additional layers inside and outside. There is a hollow area at the back of the barrel (representing the chamber). The guide rails I haven't fully tested yet, but they're set farther back, giving the bolt room to rotate correctly. There is a muzzle brake (It's pretty simple, but let me know if you can't figure out how it is assembled.) The hadguard side bumps are back. The grip frontstrap and backstrap are divided into segments like the AR grip, so it should be a little more intuitive to assemble. The stock has grooves on the sides, and the first and fourth page has the faces that go inside these grooves. The buttplate has a few more pieces but they are self-explanatory. There is a rear sling loop that goes on the bottom of the stock iirc. The bolt and receiver internals are pretty much the same for now, but I'd like to make some changes to them later. Magazine is shaped differently, but fits together the same way. There is now a pseudo-floorplate, which is a duplicate of the follower, that just goes under the follower so you can connect them with a spring (without needing a particularly large spring) and push down on the follower a little bit. How far down you put it depends on what kind of springs are available to you. There's also a side rail, and a couple of cartridges.

I don't build the kobra sight yet because I don't know if the side rail is good or not. Once the shape of the AK is finalized, then I can move ahead with accessories.

My version is 0.91. The current version is 0.92, so that probably accounts for the difference.
The way the inches and pixels have scaled has changed ("Inkscape has adjusted the pixel density used internally from 90 DPI to 96 DPI").
I'm not sure what effect this actually has without seeing it myself.  
The page size in my files is longer than letter and wider than A4, so it should still print the same (because it will be scaled down to the actual paper size).
However, if the page size has changed or if the objects have changed size in relation to the page size, then it would be messed up.

Name a specific file so that I can compare what you're seeing in version 0.92 to what I'm seeing in version 0.91.
Tell me what it gives you for the size (in inches and pixels) of the page (under File + Document Properties) and of the drawing (Hit Ctrl+A, then look at the "W" value a the top).

Anything that attaches to the rails is compatible - sights, foregrips, PEQ box, rail covers, etc.

If I recall correctly, the pistol grip is not actually compatible (the SCAR's grip hook is realistically shaped, while my AR V3 receiver is slightly off).
Suppressor is not compatible because the barrel is different.
Stocks and buffer tube are obviously different as well.
