Holy shit this project is something else! You are really getting there! It sucks pics don't show right in the posts, it would make it so much more readable AND impressive.
Can't wait to see it completed! It's gonna rank right at the top with the best builds in the forum for sure!
Thanx, I appreciate it!

That's the reason for the foam ledge a couple posts ago. Gave me somewhere to start gluing. I only glued to the foam, not the rounds. I ran the strips on the edge of the table to give them some curve and let it follow the natural curve of the rounds.
I added on some details (3d printed and foam) and caulked in the seams and a few other spots. Like they say, "caulk and paint, make it what it ain't" LOL.

Anyway, it has to dry and then finish painting. Other items are being worked on at the moment also. Finishing up the ribbing on the diaper and bolter body is fabbed. Just have to glue it down to the main framework. Also have to sand in the lion's head details on the grip. It's bondo'ed in, but the whole grip needs to be shaped before it can be final attached.
Everybody stay safe and healthy. Thanx for watching and stay tuned 😊...

The slot on the back is where the mag guide will get glued.
I didn't go crazy with the grunge or battle damage on the mag, you figure it gets swapped out before that happens too much. I suppose a little bit being the grim,dark future. Everybody stay safe, end of transmission...

Todays progress report. Got some card stock details put on and the lion's head grip ground in. It started life as this

4 1/2 hours later it was ready for a guide coat of paint to see if the details I laid would show up. I put a light coat of flat black and dry brushed silver. Happy surprise was this

I'm almost tempted to make this like a master crafted or relic bolter. 1 thing for sure is the paint stays, no sense in repainting it.
If you haven't noticed, I like to take a lot of pics. I continually reassemble stuff and check fitment and sizing and such. Case in point

https://photos.app.goo.gl/RGaxoeuERBPiFUwQ9
That's some of the card stock details. Still lots more to go with that. If I do make it a relic build alot of the flat portions will get a bunch of filligree type stuff like in the corners and what not. I decided on red and black for the colors. Some of the other color combos were too blingy looking. Well, that's all for tonight. Everybody stay safe and healthy. Thanx for watching...

Good progress made today. Got the bolter body clad in card stock.

Now you might notice in the pics that the card stock details don't come right edge to edge. There's a reason for this. The gap will get an angle sanded on it and filled with Dap caulk. This will make a nice beveled edge all the way around. Once it gets a coat of paint you'll never see it (I hope). Also did some grinding on the grip

Oh and 1 just for shiggles
https://photos.app.goo.gl/qUenf2H4PCSEiWD99
That was 1 of the badges I made quite awhile ago. It looks like it'll fit just fine. All the seams on the body are caulked and drying overnight. Then I can start on some more of the details and paint. Stay safe and healthy, thanx for watching...

Lots of detail progress finished today. Completed the top sight rib and almost all the other remaining doodads.
The sight had alot of small fiddly stuff to contend with. I thought about what to use for components for a simple peep sight set up. Came up with this

Electrical connector with some copper wire glued on for a reticle. Here's the rest of the progression

And yes, the peep sights line up. I'm kinda sick like that LOL!
On the bolter body and starting to take shape

The next set is details and hand guard

In the game pics, the slots in the hand guard go all the way around. I was afraid that it would be too hard to keep straight and glue down. The blank spot in the middle was a good spot for this

 The last couple are reassembly and fitment with the glove

There are just a few details and the barrels left to make. Then it's final assembly and paint. This thing weighs about 3 1/2-4 lbs, maybe. I'll be able to carry this with no problem 👍 Hope everybody is safe and well. Stay tuned...

Got the barrels completed today. Found some plastic and PVC pipe and went to town

You see the gold twisted wire in the pic, it goes in the grooves on the compensators. I found some jewelry wire in 1 of my hobby drawers. I also etched some sayings on the compensators as well. You could just barely make out words on them in the game pics
https://photos.app.goo.gl/iGjKUuK8v4cLpJQLA
This 1 reads "Emperor punish them"
https://photos.app.goo.gl/iGjKUuK8v4cLpJQLA
That 1 reads "Punish them all"
Wire in the grooves

Finally got them mounted and trim rings on

Business end, wouldnt want to be on the wrong end of those

This thing is ready for final assembly and paint. I can't wait for that! I may still make 1 of the upgrade sights for it yet. If I do, it'll have to get mounted before I paint. I'll see what tommorow brings. Hope everyone is doing well and Thanx for watching...
