At last, I finished the final sketch. I'm not posting the weapon one here, because it's evolving fast from it's original form as expected. But I went to a hardware store today, and bought a new saw, wood and pipes and other fun stuff.
I finished making the unpainted form of a digital scope (not working for real of course, hehe), and here are some pics.
The wide, grey water pipe will work as a grenade launcher on the bottom. I'm working with some pics of the M4 carbine/assault rifle and then KOTOR/Episode IV for reference.
I also finished some of the wood stuff, sawed out and sanded. I'll be posting more pictures when they are done. Note that I'm trying to make this as kind of an archaic version of the movie stuff, but it must look powerful and compact at the same time.
