M-98 Widow Rifle (///Commission///) - Mass Effect Series

Worn AtLondon MCM Expo May 2012




My First Ever Prop Commission! XD

CI user Manticore commissioned me to to build him the 'M-98 Widow' Rifle.
Most people tend to do the other rifles and Mod Nerf guns as they already look similar in shape and form, while I chose to make this from scratch as I wanted a challenge and I can get it to the exact shape and dimensions required.
I made it from wood, PVC pipes, card, plastic, PVC Plumbing Attachments and some LED's attached to a power cell and switch.

Your work is neat, I can see why you got the commission. I would love to know a little info how you are making this - just some little helpers like what plastics/glues etc you are used. We can learn so much from each other... :)

Im always happy to share how i do things as i've learnt so much from other people so its only fair to pass on what i've been taught and discovered myself. I'll explain how i did it n what materials i've used when its nearer completion, but if you have any questions in the mean time feel free to ask :)
