Razorback finished and more UPDATES!!!

So today is a big day. I'm unveiling the finished Razorback and Ryan has some nice updates. So i'll Start with the Razorback unveiling because I know everyone wants to see it. I'm fairly Happy with it over all, minus a few color differences it came out pretty nice. I especially like the wear detail on in the red. Ok enough don't want to break my arm patting myself on the back before I get to the end of the post. Without much further ado bum bum bum bum bum bum BUM!!!! the Razorback

Now on to Ryan. He has started the Blutsauger and it looks great. He is layering it out in MDF like I did with my gun stock and is chugging along getting the rest of it cut out as well so here are some updates for that.

So as you can see it is really taking form. Next up with have the fire extinguisher like take on the side of his pack. He has sanded the foam down and applied a coat or 3 of wood filler to really smooth it out. I wish I had done it on the Razorback and it would've cut back on all the issues i had of the paint not sticking but thats done with for now.

Really looking Nice and silky smooth. Alright the last update I have is for my gun. I have since sanded down the stock and it is all ready for paint but I'm just going to paint it when everything else is finished. All the sanding took quite a while since i didn't quite have the tools I needed. The part for the barrel is sanded as well and that took a good 5 hours to sand by hand but that is for another day. So to close out here's the last of the pictures.

So thanks for coming by and I'll try to update a little more often to give you something to keep checking for. Thanks to everyone who's visited so far and PLEASEEEE FOLLOW it just makes me feel better.

YAY!!! Pictures

So today is the day the picture posts start. This one is going to be quite a long one since i've got a few pictures to show to keep things up to date. On a note for the razorback there was a slight issue with the primer sticking to the spackle but we'll get to that when we get to the breakdown of the razorback. On a possitive note lets start with the Rifle.
So this is the plan ^.

So I started by printing a few scale images from SourceSDK (thank you steam) and gave a little sanding barrier when cutting it out of MDF.

I then took the 3 layers and glued them together. I have all the pieces for the scope cut as well and will update more once they are worth showing. They are just being glued at the moment. After 2 days of gun work this is where its at. Now for the Razorback not much to show but quite
a bit to talk about. So I'll start with the plan. Ta DA!!

This is the final look. Hopefully!!

This is where its at. I started with a block of green foam and sculpted that thing like Michaelangelo carving david. I then did a layer of primer on the foam followed by a layer of spackle to fill in the holes of the foam. I really piled that S*** on and then sanded it down. It looked really nice and I put a coat of primer that is water based and ran into a problem of it peeling off this afternoon. OH NO!! i filled in the problems with a spray primer and I am now waiting for it to dry for sanding. Fingers crossed that I dont run into more problems of peeling. I'm hoping the final paint will really hold it all together. I also have the battery spackled and ready for sanding tomorrow. The wires are ready to go. One of which has to be painted so that was primed today. Pictures to come so I have some cool stuff to show you. Anyways now a quick note on the progress of Ryan.

Ryan is currently working on the Medics pack seen on the back here!!!

He has been unfortuantely held up helping me plan mine but will be well underway this week. He currently has some of the bottle pieces laid out and being glued to be scultped out of green foam.

This is where the project currently stands so come back often and I'll try to keep you updated as best is possible. A little note on me. This is my first blog so I may suck at this. Hopefully the end results and the images don't. Please subscribe and I'll see ya again soon.
