Replica Airsoft Shape.

Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Tue Mar 27, 2007 3:53 am

Hi i have just finished my combustion bb gun(it works alright it jus has to be cocked and sprayed every shot.)And i would like to know how i would shape the "outer shell" i guess that i place over my gun to make it look like a real gun.

I would like to make an SA80 and i would like to know how to make it that shape and what to build it out of and what tools i need.

thanks.

Easy, buy a cheap airsoft SA80, chop of the bits you need like handgrip, sight etc. with a hacksaw and epoxy them to your gun :D

In that case look around for cheap water pistols (ignore the colours as you can easily paint everything a uniform colour at a later date) as they usually have realistic shapes for grips etc, and you can get a proper red dot sight very cheaply, that will give you something that looks good and is functional too.

Funnily enough that was one of the rifles I used for design inspiration while I was making mine. Try overlaying the two and you'll see what I mean :wink:

Shape some bodywork from wood to attach to your cannon if you can't get hold of a airsoft one to rob.

I personally don't like decorative shells much... gets in the way of things and doesn't do much :?

I dont know if this is a good idea but you can take pvc and melt it in the oven a little and it becomes very pliable. Ive only made flat sheets from pipe, i read it somewhere for the temperature i think it is 325 F until pliable. Just a thought.

Funny, I did the pvc in the oven thing last night. It works quite well but it tends to brown one side if you dont warm it up very gradually.

Well not a lot of people own a heat gun, I don't think. I've got one and I've tried to shape pvc into a different shape, and it didn't turn out as good as I had hoped. I wouldn't recommend doing it, and it also smells really bad if you try to melt it too fast.

I wish I had a better signature...

Hmm, that doesn't look very accurate (funny thing: I just watched the Alien quadrilogy again these days).

If you use an inline design one of the easiest guns you can replicate is the Steyr AMR.
For over-unders, just use an assault rifle with an attached GL, like:
FN F2000 - http://world.guns.ru/assault/as41-e.htm
OICW - http://world.guns.ru/assault/as40-e.htm
M16 - http://world.guns.ru/assault/as18-e.htm
or the ones already mentioned above.

Yeah he said it isn't meant to be very accurate as he got carried away when making it for a role play or something.
