Samus Aran's Pistol by torsoboyprops Samus Aran's Pistol by torsoboyprops
I took a commission to build Samus Aran's pistol from Metroid: Other M. This was built in about 2 months, and it's a one-off build. Primary construction includes layered 1/4" MDF and layered 2mm sintra. The pistol was built hollow to accommodate electronics (the barrel lights up when you pull the trigger) and to help reduce weight when holstered in the thigh holster. The entire project included the pistol, a vacuum-formed holster, and a custom made thigh pad to which the holster attaches.

I have seriously entertained the idea of building a new production model for castings, but I'm so busy with other builds at the moment that I don't know when I could fit it into my schedule. After I finish work for this current con season, I should be able to free up some time to commit to something.

what kind of paint do you use to make them look like real metal? O:

The type of paint doesn't matter - it's how you use them. I drybrush various metallics and blacks in layers to get the right look.

Reminds me of a combo of Halo's Magnum and Deckard's revolver.
