Alien Blaster Assembled by billybob884 Alien Blaster Assembled by billybob884
My next in the Fallout 3 series is done! This is the Alien Blaster, a cheesy 1950-esque sci-fi alien pistol found in a downed alien saucer hidden in the wasteland.

This one wasn't too bad, better than the Laser Pistol anyway (which was a pain in the ass... whatever). My final build came out to be ~12" (~30 cm) long, ~4" (~10 cm) wide, and ~8" (~20 cm) tall.

The handle is a little inaccurate, I got sorta lazy and didn't feel like making half a dozen half-torus ring shapes to slide onto it to give it ridges (you probably wouldn't be able to hold it without crushing them if you weren't using cardstock, which I didn't).

Like my previous model, it's not perfectly "life-sized". My OCD tendencies forced me to keep it at the same scale as the Laser Pistol ;), so it's about 90% of what it would be life-sized... anyone with a printer capable of printing 11x17 can easily scale it up an appropriate amount.

Anyway, enjoy! I’m off to consider my next model... maybe I’ll try the Combat Shotgun, that'd be pretty bad-ass... though nearly impossible without being at least partly cardstock.

This is part of a series:
Fallout 3 Ammo
Combat Shotgun
Alien Blaster
AEP7 Laser Pistol





~^~ UPDATED ~^~

I added a few shots of the new stand I made for it to the bottom. It's just an unfolded wire coat-hanger, but it's much more sturdy and supportive than the previous white paper blocks...

The weapon is very interesting here because it looks like a futuristic weapon which was dug out from the ground in 1887, but the strange futuristic weapon is over a thousand years old, and there was never technology this advance back in the day. Which we probably think it was a weapon from the very very far future which was zapped back in time, or time travelers who were left in the past and died in the past but there technology was left behind, or old school alien technology since they are more advance now.

Just saying because it looks so interesting. :)

Thanks for the reference pic.
Most of the photos of these are blurry and the videos aren't great.
This should be good for a more robust version

Ever considered something from the warhammer 40k universe? a boltgun or a hand flamer would be pretty cool...

for those of you who haven't found it yet, the Alien Blaster can be found near Vault 92. You'll find the Ships radio signal if you stick to the cliffside.

More like 98.5% to scale, only difference is that in the game it's a little more rounded.

Great job btw.

believe it or not, the original model wasn't actually much more rounded than this, anti-aliasing effects just make it look smoother

these looks so great, im wondering if you have done anything to make them durable? are these hard to build? i would like to do one myself, and im wondering if you have any advice.

the alien blaster is a fairly difficult model. you can get more info on durability through paper type in my FAQ, but i wouldn't recommend cardstock for this one.
