The M56 Smart Gun as used in the classic 1986 film Aliens, you know the one.
I’m using the film and these photos as reference.
I want it to be built from foam board to make it light as possible. It also needs to be strong as it is quite a long piece so I’ll be using 20mm plastic conduit as a kind of back bone to the whole thing. So first things first, work out the size and build a prototype body.
I’m happy with the shape but my word it huge! (TWSS*) So now to refine and cut again.
Although I haven’t got any comparison shots this piece is about 20-30% smaller.
