Fallout Plasma Rifle - Complete! This is what I've been working on for the last month. Many weeks to find all the materials, then many weeks more to put them together to what you see here. But it's worth it.

And the pictures aren’t very good. I’ll try to do better later, but my camera is out of batteries (dollar store batts bad!). But yes, in the end the whole project cost about 40 dollars. Most of that money was paint and 2-stage epoxy. Still some parts are a little fragile, and I’ll reinforce them with resin clay.

This rifle was built, except paint and glue, out of all recycled parts! Plumbing parts, little motors, old fuses and unused tubing, the junk found new life in a Fallout thing. :D If anyone has questions about particular doodads or anything at all, I’d be happy to answer them.

Hopefully better pictures coming sooner or later! My big plan for Halloween is to do a wasteland doctor outfit, in particular a Followers doctor. (Arcade’s friend? ;) Maybe). That will be fun, heh heh…

I was lucky that at that point in my life that I had access to a tool shed that had been accruing random junk (spend fuses, old pipes) for decades and decades.  Without it, I'd have spent a fortune at the hardware store. But yeah, I started with printing out the model, making a paper mockup, and then going on collection runs and coming home and laying out junk on my mockup like a psycho.  It was a hoot!

The only think I had to custom build was the frame.  Then I literally glued a ton of weird crap on there. Yay!

Thanks!  It was a lot of fun to make.  Most of the time was finding random objects that were just right. :D

It's great to see, what can be done with usual objects :) ... and some impressive skills :) 
Fallout 3 was one of the Games, I spent the most time for and that makes me remember a lot of funny hours :D
