My next project will be to model and texture the, in my opinion, coolest rifle ever to be created!
The M41A Pulse Rifle from the movie Aliens.
I've gathered tons of reference, but many of them are photos of replicas people have created themselves, so they're not always accurate, so I will try to take the middle road, seeing as there is not many good ref pictures from the movie.
after this? you want to model all' aliens-series gun?
You guys are right it is a Thompson M1 and a spas-12 shotgun....read an articel in airsoft international on how you can make one or but the full complete kit with working ammo counter...also showed you how to look like a colonial marine....:)
by the way the guys here are correct about the M1 Thompson being used for the automatic part of the weapon however the grenade launcher was based on the Remington 870 shotgun.
The mag and ejection opening give it away, the SPAS12 has a small cocking handle protruding. They only used SPAS12 grips for the GL.
Hope that helps
I've started modeling the highpoly now.
Here's where I'm at so far:
I also recorded a few tutorials while making it.
I will continue to make recordings while I start working on the lowpoly.
I'm just happy if I can help someone with my tutorials!
The reason I make these is because when I started modeling I had problems finding videos where I could see others' workflows.
Also the lip on the front side comes up to far and is not wide enough... looking forward to seeing more updates, love this weapon!
