My Build of a Dragunov Sniper Rifle (SVD) in 1:1 scale
Here is the (completed) barrel
That is looking real good. I am currently building the Barrett M82A1 and the AR-15.
Keep up the good work and I am looking forward to seeing your finished build.
If this your own design or someone's kit. My 11 year old always talks about how much he likes this rifle. Considering i don't let him do first person shooter games, I have no idea of how he knows of all these weapons? Your model is awesome!! I certainly would be very careful walking around with that!
I originally got it from Paper Replika, but I just looked for the link, and I can't find it. This is EXACTLY why I save papercrafts, even if I don't think I'll build it.
Very original model!
Good luck with assembling!
Here is the link to the one at Paper-Replika....
Thanks Inky, for some reason, that page wouldn't show up. and thats exactly where I got it
You guys rule, Dented Rick, I was just about to send you an e-mail to beg for a copy! What size paper did you do this on?
its printed on regular 8 1/2 x 11
That Barrel looks like it has actual bluing on it. Did you reenforce it with anything?
Nothing, the Sections of the barrels aren't really long enough to require re-inforcement. it's actually holding up pretty good
I'd love to modify his B-B gun to look like that. Hmm?
Man that looks good. If i may ask, how did you roll your barrel? I have such a time with round parts like that.
That is looking real good.
I cheat, lol. I have 9 wooden dowels ranging from 1/8" to 1", and a collection of little metal tubes in sizes ranging from 1/25" to 7/8". Basically, if it's a tube, I got the size needed, lol
I figured as much. I really have been meaning to build up my dowel and rod collection.
Go to any craft store (Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc) The Metal tubes i got in a variety pack for $1 (I bought 2 of them) the dowels were about $.50 apiece, and 3' long (I cut them down to 14")
Man, I'm running to my local Michael's to see if they have a tube collection like that. I may have mentioned this before, but Michael's can't sell the left over "Picture Frame" cardboard they have, but they can give it to you. Walk in with a model and show them what you doing with it, it also helps if you have a couple tubes of glue and other doo-dads you are buying from them. They have so far given me almost 15 lbs. of the most amazing non-acidic cardboard, of all different colors and thicknesses that may take a coping saw to cut, FREE!! Michael's rules. I gave the Manager of that section a CD filled with models I had that were freely available, as he had no idea of this hobby whatsoever?
I have a lot of files to get started on and this is one of them
