    Finished the modelling guys. Though I may alter the front grip under the barrel. That version is from the 3.75" Omega figures but doesn't look as good I think as the ingame version so I may go for that.

    Wow, excellent work!

    Are you going to make the variations of the DC's? If so, I'm guessing they will all be the same size/shape, so if you wanted to swap the parts out to convert the gun back and forth, you could do that? That would be SWEET!

    Your work is really awesome, keep it up!

    Thanks very much guys! Glad you like it.

    I went back and made some changes to that forward grip lastnight. I think this is a little better than that hexagonal drum I originally had. I also did the ammo mag.

    As for the attachments, I've thought about it. I'll probably come back and do them but I'll need to play the game a little more to see just how thay attach to the rifle. They don't just slot over the Deece as is. The front part of the standard Deece come off. So a little more research is needed.

    Hey guys, could one of you kind people tell me how long a Deece is? I've never had a real prop of one before so I don't know.

    Morning guys,

    I managed to get the DC-17 finished this morning. The templates for anyone who's interested in them are available through my blog. It's 16 pages worth of templates and is not for the faint of heart or the novice I'd say. Though it should build up to a nice prop. You could remove the glue tabs and build this with styrene or build as a card model and fill it with foam or something similar to made it more sturdy. Resin then on the outside for a carder skin?? That's how I think I'll build mine anyway.

    Another pic:

    Hey guys,

    I have another addition to the RC templates in the works today. Not armor though I'm afraid. However, it's still a cool one.

    I'm almost finished modelling the pistol (unsure of it's model) the RC's use.

    Not a great deal to say about it really as I'm sure there are plenty of RC fans here who know more about it than me. I started modelling it this morning and have one more part to add before it's done.

    Thanks alot my friend. I thought you'd like it. I was asked to do this by a guy in the states. I can't say much about the why but it was an honor to do it. I'd have gotten to this anyway myself without being asked but it's good to have it done.

    I'll probably unfold this and offer up templates for others to build their own from styrene or something.

    Here's three pics of the complete model.

    EDIT: I've just looked at those pics above and it struck me that this pistol actually ressembles Robocops Auto9(I think that's what it's called)??? Funny.

    No buddy. This could be textured and what not and even unfolded to create a card model for display.

    Though I'm not really doing that anymore these days. I'll be unfolding this 3D model to create 2D templates or the pistol. Then those templates could be used to build you're own using sheet styrene or similar material.With a little time, ELwire could be used to light the prop too.

    I've started a build of the DC-17 rifle using my templates. Hopefully, this will be one of my custom Mandos pieces of essential kit!!

    I adapted my templates to work on styrene. Basically ignoring the glue tabs and having to trim 1mm off here and there to make up for thicker material. So far so good I think.

    Thanks very much buddy!! There's some areas that need filling here and there but overall it's going well. I'm trying to figure out now how to light it, have the ammo mag removable and have sections that I can remove to change batteries or lights.

    Tricky but I'll get there.

    Thanks bro.

    Thanks Dexx, I made more progress on it lastnight. I'm building the area that'll house the ammo counter and energy magazine. I've kinda figured out how I'll approach it now. I'll have more pics later maybe.

    Really enjoying this, I'm even obsessing over it already. Spending every free second on some part of it. It's good to be working with styrene again.
