    Sounds like a fun afternoon.

    Oh, yes... Fun... Yay. LOL

    Fixed the rivets on the turret, though I didn't render the result since it basically looks the same as before. then I started working on the Hotchkiss M1914. I found a bunch of references for the gun and loaded them into Truespace.

    Since the majority of the gun most likely won't be seen, I'm not going to put too much working detail into it. But for now, here's the rear section that holds the trigger mech. I just need to add on the cover plate and the buttstock. Next, I'll move onto the receiver and then finally the barrel.

    More gun progress. For this section, I still need to add the belt feeder and ejector port. Plus some smaller details. Then I can get to the barrel mount and finally the barrel and actuator.

    Thanks, guys!

    Okay! Now the real reason I want to use the Hotchkiss is because of the barrel. That just screams "Retro Sci-fi!" to me. It wouldn't be out of place for a Jules Verne story adaptation made in the 1930s. Or maybe even a Buck Rogers style death ray or whatever.

    Or is Buck Rogers more Atom Punk than Diesel Punk? Hmm...

    Anyway, I was stuck on the feed mechanism, so I pushed ahead with the barrel and worked that out in a couple of hours (with time spent looking at youtube videos). I found a few more reference images of that specific part, so that should be the next update.

    Yeah, it definitely has a nice retro Sci-Fi look to it.

    I had a little trouble figuring this bit out. But I think I got it! The rear sight was a lot easier than the case ejector. Mostly due to the strange shape of the brass part's compound curves.

    All that's left to do is the feeder that's below this section.

    The feeder isn't 100% accurate. But it's as close as I feel like getting at the moment. Most of this won't be seen anyway so... ::shrugs:: Anyway, basic mats and GI lighting. Took a matter of seconds to render.

    I'm planning to unwrap the parts and try out Substance Painter to see what I can do with that. Grunge it up a bit and all that.

    I may have cursed myself with the detail level for this entire project. If I've put this much into the gun, I'll definitely need to do more for the rest of the war machine.

    At least the scale of the weapon will help me figure out the scale of the rest of it.
