Here is where we show off some of the work that’s going into our various prop weapons. Our prop makers will do little write-ups on their pieces, their methods and other cool tid bits. Enjoy!

Of note with the Magnum is that it actually contains a 1911 pistol, meaning it is a fully functioning, operating prop!

“Usually all my builds start with reference pics in scale to what I am building. Luckily for Halo fans there is the Halo 3 in game pics option. I took pics of every angle and saved them. I printed out a side view in perfect scale for what I wanted and cut it out. The cut out is then used as a template for a basic shaping progress. This shape is transfered to a piece of mdf. I prefer mdf because it is super smooth for a wood product and easy to cut.
Once the initial shape is cut, layers of detail are added with more mdf, plastic styrene sheet and sculpting clay to get to the desired thickness the piece needs. I find it easier to add the details than try to remove them. Once the main body was shaped I worked on the round clip on the bottom. That was made with pvc pipe and then more details added with styrene. I make it sound easy but there are to many hours to count to get the finished piece. You can see the in progress pics to get an idea of how it comes together.
