District 9 Rifle
This project was a real triumph for us here at Punished Props. It was our first big collaboration with our friends at Tested and Smooth-On. This was a month long build leading up to SDCC 2015. I did the majority of the fabrication from MDF wood and all of the pieces were molded and cast using materials contributed to the project by Smooth-On.
Over a period of 21 crazy days, I built the master from scratch and detailed it all in several videos, linked below. I also got a ton of help making the molds from my amazing wife Brittany! I couldn’t have done it without her.
