I've been working on my custom Marbo model. It's coming on well, but I thought I'd share how I made his ripper pistol. I wanted something that looked like a heavy pistol / submachine pistol.
First, I started off with a standard bolt pistol, I drilled the barrel slightly and then cut off the pistol grip and the barrel and small rod underneath it.
Next up, I glued a piece of sprue to the front of the pistol.
I then trimmed the sprue down and filled any gaps with green stuff.
I then added two plasticard strips to bulk it up a bit.
The finally, I glued the barrel back on, and hey presto, a custom Ripper pistol for my Marbo. It's the first time that I've done anything like this, so I'm chuffed with how it's turned out.
