    very nice indeed ! I've made similar guns and I know how hard they are to do!! do you plan to add any weathering on it or keep it clean?

    That is damn accurate if I may say so myself. What parts you used or is it full scratch?

    thank you, i did try and make it accurate , and obviously it worked , thanks guys:thumb 
    no im going to keep it clean, partly cos i dont have the paints or skills to do something like that, and partly cos i want it to match the figure and if it is battle damaged it wont match as well:eek: 
    wow ye that does look good, i like the rusted look to it :thumb 
    thanks, unfortunatly i dont sell them :( 
    it wass completely scratch build, nothing was used from other guns, it was all parts lying around in my garage :)

    Looks great! I can identify some part on there :) 

    I'm going to scratch build Prime's Jetwing armament eventually. Thanks for the inspiration!

    yes, i am the guy who made the ironhide guns from the game :thumb  youve seen them i guess
    thanks :thumb 

    About a tutoruial,
    there is no set order in making them so i wont make a proper tutorial thread with pics and stuff cos it is different with each gun.

    what i do though for each gun is look for a good pic for it on the web, one where i can see it clearly from different angles

    i look at the pic carefully and see what i could use for certain parts on it then i collect the parts most suited for the job

    i cut/sand/holepunch if neccecary then glue them with this loctite glue
    51sQfNmWvML__SL500_AA300_.jpg
    it works instantly and i reccomend this

    when all is dry and finished i then spray it with a silver model spray paint to give it a metalic look , i would like to get a gun metal grey on but i cant find one :( 

    i hope tis helps , and i kno i may have not done some things the right way but it has worked well for me
