Well, now that the AER9 Laser Rifle is finished, I have officially started on my next project. Next up is the A3-21 Plasma Rifle. This gun is also from Fallout 3. I enjoyed building the laser rifle so much with all the gritty weathering and character that I have decided to build another weapon from the Fallout universe. For those unfamiliar with the game or this rifle, it is far more complex then the AER9. One thing I will be doing differently with this one is that the A3-21 will be getting the full electronics treatment, complete with illuminated plasma chambers. The final game model of this weapon is a little lacking in detail so I will be building mine based off of one of the concept sketches from the Fallout art book. Below is the sketch of what this gun will look like. I have drawn up a set of blueprints and have begun the construction of the main chambers.
With this project I will be documenting my build process as I progress. So there will be plenty of updates to come!
