M45 Shotgun - (Reach Shotgun)
Updated: Sep 20, 2020
A deadly CQC weapon, second only to a Kukri...
Be honest, other than Noble 6, everyone wanted to be either Jorge or Emile. With this shotgun (and check out my Kukri build!) now you can be! Neither Elite nor Infected will be able to touch you, once you get yourself an M45.
Seamless, Modular Design
As you can see this model includes a lot of parts. This was done to minimize the overall supports required (as almost all of the parts can be printed support free) and make the painting and sanding process easier. This also allows this entire piece to have no ugly seams anywhere that they don't naturally lie in actual design.
Working Flashlight Ring Clamps
This piece also includes some flashlight rings that screw together to clamp the placeholder flashlight in place. The place holder flashlight was modeled roughly after a flashlight I found in real life (found in a park so I don't have a link). If like me you want to include a working flashlight in the design. Feel free to try and design your own flashlight rings using the included ones as reference. Or just print some simple rings to make your flashlight fit in the existing ring clamps. Also feel free to message me and I may be able to do you a solid.
Make sure to check out my builds section to see the actual working flashlight in action.
Pictured above you can see my build of the M45 with my build of Emile's Kukri.
Here you can see a picture of the flashlight on.
I didn't do that much sanding of this piece at all. I just slapped some Rust-oleum Metallic paint on there and called it a day. This is by far one of my most complex pieces and I was focused more on making sure the design all fit together rather than making it too pretty.
If you are looking to create you own models like this one feel free to checkout all of my tutorials on 3D modeling and prop making techniques.
If you are looking to purchase the model so that you can print your own you can find it in the store.
Lastly, make sure to check back in every once in a while to see what I've been working on
Thank you for your time
