Hey there! Quick question - what material did you construct your Carniflex/paladin out of?
I worked with eva foam of different thickness, cause I never worked with wood- that would have been better, i think… a lot more accurate. When the eva foam model was finished (and sanded and primed) I made a silicone and plaster mold. Then the replicas were done in urethane resin, but I added pretty a lot of microspheres to the compound to lighten the weight of the guns… and they still are pretty heavy!
