Digital Firearm Mockup - "Vera"

Post by The Jinja Ninja on Sun May 03, 2009 5:44 pm



Jayne's very favourite gun from Firefly, cobbled together digitally from a bunch of BrickArms weapons. Might work IRL, if you can mold plastic with your bare hands. Razz

Oh, and yes, I really have no idea about gun terminology, so if the li'l scope and back bit have real names, You can keep them to yourself while quietly laughing at me.

Think of this as a continuation of the conversation between Muffin and I yesterday. Wink

EDIT: Reference pic so y'all know what I'm talking about.

Hey that looks pretty good. Without the reference pic it looked kinda odd with all the colors but now I see it;s meant that way.

A very gaudy weapon; may I ask what the use of having several bullets clipped to the buttstock is?

It looks good, but what'd the point in this?

Ammo. 'Cause sometimes guns run out of bullets, donchaknow. Also, heehee, 'buttstock'. Laughing Wink

It's in the WIP section, isn't it? Razz The idea is to make this IRL, and for the digital mockup to serve as a guide. So think of this as a taster.

Awesome you actually did it! Read to have another hour and a half conversation again tonight about Firefly? Razz Now all we have to do is to actually make it not just a virtual one.

Common military term. Wink

Oh, because ammo goes in clips, don'tchaknow. So instead of keeping two or three extra full clips they take out the one they're using and refill it bullet by bullet. Real genius.

They are on clips, silly. Look, just squint a bit at the base. Besides, it's fictional and it's from the future, who knows what kind of whacko technology it uses, especially after Jayne's upgraded it. Razz

A-ha! Here's an idea: It's a rifle clip similar to those used in the American Garand and the German KAR-98, buuuut the clip on the rifle is stuck in the rifle; it isn't taken out, and the ammo clip is simply pulled out of the back of the magazine, with the new clip(mounted on the buttstock) inserted likewise.

That's very clever - The only problem I'm thinking of is how the minifig is going to hold it - If the buttstock is too close to the handle the minifig might not be able to hold it properly, or you might have to cut the trigger guard off.

Very cool jinja. One thing the back bit would be called the stock and the lil' scope is most likely a laser scope. I have SOCOM and they kinda look like that.

The problem is that I can see no way a minifigure could pose with it properly because of the buttstock. It's too long to fit.

The bullets in the stock(or buttstock) are not going to work. Make an ammo pouch or something. But don't forget to make the bullets smaller than the suppresor.

I'm not going to lie; this looks sweet. If you can actually pull this off you'll be a sick modder.

Well legos often have very over sized utensils and weapons. Wink But, this weapon is modded from brickarms so he didn't really have the chance to make it smaller.

Got the necessary BA and did most of the cutting today. Shouldn't be too long 'til I've got my own li'l Vera - I should probably make a Jayne minifig, come to think of it... Ah well, a random minifig will do for now. Razz

You can read 'em on the original image, but here they are for clarty:

Grenade launcher (alternatively, cut the top off a LEGO sextant)
SOCOM pistol
M1A1 .45 cal SMG
Combat shotgun
4-pack of ammo clips

It's a good idea to get a couple of each in case you screw up. Razz Also, if you want a silver handle and a black stock, you could order two different coloured shotguns.

In other news, I've started glueing Vera together. She's made of about ten parts, so it'll probably take a while.
