Working on a sci-fi Assault Rifle for an indie studio. I used the Wolfenstein The New Order assault rifle 1960 as reference, removing all the non-sense designs and applying practical ones…
Added a muzzle break
Added more detail to the lower receiver
Increased the scope height
Added retractable crosshairs for the grenade launcher
Elevated the scope a bit higher
Increased space for the trigger area
Made a longer barrel
Smoothed some edges
Relocated the lever to the left side
Made the body modular for easy 3d printing
New paint job
More detail to the lower receiver
More detail to the magazine
Custom pistol grip
Very cool design. Looks like it was a fun model to make.
On several of these models, I found myself wondering whether the butt-stock and/or the placement of the optical aiming device would actually match the necessary position of a human figure who is aiming and firing this rifle. The stock of a rifle often slopes upward specifically to give the head-and-eyes somewhere to be, and also to make sure that the recoil does not drive the weapon against the face. I’d suggest improvising a very simple model with correct human proportions with which to verify that the weapon you designed can actually be held, aimed and fired.
thanks for pointing that out. I think I should make a life sized paper craft of these and try how they look like.
