The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Working on my own version of a "carbine" Pulse Rifle. Sort of a "CAR15" equivalent. I am calling this the M41C.

I cut down the front of an M41 and added some styrene details. I also made a new muzzle using a PVC pipe fitting. The forend is from an M1 Thompson - keeping with the Thompson base design - cut to fit. I also modified the magazine well to fit the carbine appearance of the gun.

I had previously speed-built this gun and made some mistakes, so I had to do a lot of work getting the parts re-fitted properly. I did a lot of patching using styrene and kydex. Kydex is great for projects like this. I rough cut the pieces with a scissors and then square up the edges using a benchtop belt sander.

I made some new reinforcing plates out of kydex that need to be installed, and I'm making a new cocking handle.

Still a lot of detailing to do, but it's shaping up nicely.

I love the idea and the result so far ... maybe you could consider to install a large flash hider like in the XM 177 Commando ?
