Early Barrel Plug Tests

By on August 25, 2014

I fashioned a more screen-accurate tip for the quad blaster that plugs into the old nerf gun barrel.

First test of the gun barrel looks okay. It’s a hair shorter than I intended, and I noticed a couple things that could be improved, so I went back into 3d Studio and just tweaked some of the dimensions – added a tiny bit of length to the end, moved the ribbing down, and resized the holes in the bottom to take LEDs properly.

The ribbing on it is a detail I’ve kind of abstracted from the reference images marvel has made available. It seems to only be on the right gun, and on the barrel shroud instead of the barrel itself, but whatever, I’m working a tiny bit loosely with the visuals to get the same effect across.
