Hey Everybody!
 

So... a new cycle has started for the MEPD under a new DL and a new energy is flowing among the detachment. This sounds to me like a great opportunity to start working again in my delayed projects awaiting on the work bench.

I will be building, upgrading and finishing various projects, including new weathering and adding my real hegnstler counter to my E11,  finishing building my ANOVOS armor, finishing my TK replica armor, building my Gino and TM buckets, and... upgrading my T21 BFG!

 

For that, I will be adding the ribbing engraving to the barrel using nylon thread, adding greeblies, upgrading some details, adding blue wire and finishing the weathering and ageing.

So... this is where I started:

This was a commission to a local artist/sculptor/prop builder... 

From there, I added the slings and into my first troop with it.

But I was never really happy with it. The size, shape and  diameter of the barrel, specially at the end, was not what I expected. So I modified it to make it more similar in shape to a real gun. I also added some parts inside the barrel and on other places... 

Unfortunately, I can't find a picture of the mods or the process.
 

Then, I also added weathered it and added the elastic plastic cord, and proceded to make further upgrades.

Now, I finally started the process to fully finish it.


This is when I first took some parts off it:

And this is how it is going atm.

I do have one doubt, and if anyone has any idea, it will be more than welcome: How do you guys attached the greeblies over the nylon thread so that the screws do not cut it and ruin the whole work?

 

 

Will try to work on this, even if slowly, to finish it soon.
Progress will be shared and pictures posted. 

Saludos.

Looking great! I started working on a wrapped barrel like that a while back but haven't finished it up yet. Nice work! :duim:

THx bro!

I was way more time consuming and difficult than expected. And the result is acceptable, but far from perfect. Anyway, I am very happy with how it came out, after using almost 200 mts of nylon thread. LOL!!

 

I need to write a bit about the process and learnings, but wanted to post pictures asap. Maybe write a bit later. Im feeling Lazy at the moment.

 

Saludos.

Wow, you really put a lot of effort and precision work with the nylon thread into your build, awesome! :)

I was thinking about doing that to my gun as well but I'm afraid of screwing it up. How did you attach the thread to the barrel? Spray glue?
