20 Hand-Made Gun – Full Instruction

Hand-Made Gun – Full Instruction

Posted on January 14, 2011 by team

Most of you have ever heard of the video game called “Fallout 3”. Even if you’re not a fan of this game you will probably want to know how to make a cool toy gun (actually a replica of one of the guns from the game) right at home.

To vectorize the screen shots is a one day job. Then you will need: plastic as a main material, 10-mm plywood for the butt-stock and a dremel tool.

First you should cut your plastic into pieces and glue them together. Cyanoacrylate is hell good for this purpose!

For those who don’t have a machine tool at hand (for most of us) a simple knife, compasses and cyanoacrylate will help. As soon as details are glued together they are to be turned with a file and a sand paper.

The sawed out base is gradually pasted with all the plastic details.

Small screws are better to be taken off the shelve.

The problem you will face is the weight of the gun. It’ll be too light unless you put a sheet of led inside the fore-end.


Here are all the details before painting.

Double-wire cord in a soft armor can’t be painted with an acryl because it’s too flexible and the paint will obviously fall off. One of the possible solutions is to use an old Russian method of painting eggs on Easter. All you need is a bowl with water and onion peelings. Boil this mixture and then leave the cord for 20 minutes inside the bowl. The color should be dark-brown.

Time for filling.

The next stage is padding.

Painting the battery has several stages. The yellow paint for the lower part, then the black, brown, green and gray colors for the upper one.

The original battery from the game.

Paint the body frame.


And voila. The gun is done.

Children are happy.

    Thanks, folks!
    I made this one year ago for my son (on last photos) then posted on leprosorium. That’s not Volpin model – you can compare our WIP-photos and result. But he makes awesome models by the way.
