Alright, lets see your true powers :O. Heheh, anyways i have chosen to model the gun that everyone loves, the gun off of the movie "The Fifth Element"... the ZF1! Below are a couple screenshots of this awesome gun, just incase you have not seen it before.

Here is my start to the gun. This is just the start of the rought shape. This is going to be somewhat of a hightech weapon. It will have a walkie-talkie type thing intergrated into it along with a homing beacon. Might even add one of those things were they were googles and the googles show what the gun see's, to see around corners. Let me know what you think.

O' by the way. The reason for the trigger is inversed is because it recognises the finger print of the user that it is meant for . Basicly to stop theft.

Well, with photoshop i have taken out the insides of this gun and assembled the gun. Didnt make a perfect fit due to a not perfect side angle refrence, but i was able to fill in some gaps and come out with my refrence . I will model the shell, then cut it up and model the insides after .

Alright, heres around half a hour into the gun. I have tons of tweaking to do just for the general shape. Its forming though, as you can see from the above refrence.

Hey mumbojumbo, yea for now i have to mold it a bit more, then i have to hollow out the inside and then i will maybe add a metal shell to the inside. But when i model the components inside, i will try my best to model every part all the way through, including making sure it can close and shut (Rig it). HOPEFULLY i can get that all done, if not i may have to take shortcuts and ditch the stuff that wont be seen . (LOL the whole other side... nah).
