Hello! I've finished my first kit and I thought I would share my pistol here on the weapon board. It's not very canon because it was an utter scratch build and I wasn't too worried about making it canon because I can't become an official Merc yet anyways.
I began with two pieces of wood and Gorilla glue:
Then I added on a PVC pipe I found in the garage:
I continued adding on things I already had such as old lawnmower filter mesh, a hair dryer "barrel", and (my favorite) parts from curtain hanger supports. This is how I pieced it together:
I proceeded to apply silver paint then finally white paint after weathering. I also added on some grips and what not from extra fabric I had left over from my vest. This is how it turned out:
There you have it! My first gun build, without a plan, and totally scratch.
