District 9 Assault Rifle

The District 9 Assault Rifle was made as a 1:1 scale model of the original gun designed by Weta Workshops. The brief was to choose any film/movie prop you choose and model it to a 1:1 scale. The assault rifle was first modeled in polystyrene then modelling foam and the final materials were MDF for the barrel and cebatool for the components and rest of body. The dimensions were taken of the original model from Weta Studios. The D9 Rifle was then spray finished with laquer and vinyls were added as alien insignia.
