I bought a toy shotgun from walmart for $8.
I also bought a set of 'window framing plastic' pieces for $4. A airsoft scope for $4
I had a piece of PVC pipe.
I cut the shotgun in half. Ground off one side of the end of the pvc, till it slid over the shotgun body.
Glued the top and bottom.
Ground off a little more of the main body, and covered it with 1in x 1/2 in piece of sintra.
Glued 2 drywall screw holders on to that spot to cover the 'blankness'.
Used half the window trimmings for greebles on the barrel.
papinted it silver, then some mustard splotches, then black. Then rubbed off the paint where the mustard was.
Used rub and buff to add silver to body and scope.
I created a slide for the scope to mount on by gluing 2 pieces of sintra together, the top piece the size of the scope slide, the bottom smaller, to lift it from the barrel.
I realize its not acurate But its a cheap alternative to anyone on a budget. Everyone that saw it thought it was pretty impressive. But they arent experts
I can do a tut if anyone wants it, but its pretty straight forward. I had to do it fast as a last ditch effort for a friend to wear my boba to a party this weekend.
Heres a pic.
