The long barrel of the musket is build out of a piece of foam board, which I cut out of a thick piece (8 cm).
I sanded it down and cut all the details with a knife to match the design seen on screenshots.
Cosplayflex was then used to cover the whole surface of it. Like this I got a strong and durable piece to be painted on.
Also Cosplayflex allows me to connect all further pieces without any glue, because Cosplayflex sticks to itself when heated.
See more on Cosplayflex here.
Worked on all the details with a combination of foam sheets and Cosplayflex to get this iconic Laser Rifle muzzle we all know from the Fallout games.
To get the glas tube for the Laser Musket I misused a bath salt container (it smells of lavender, yay) which accidently had the perfect size for it. It’s embedded in a piece of Cosplayflex and it sticks to it without any additional glue.
The idea here for the muzzle was to make a bracketed long barrel, but I later thought this musket already is very long, so adding a muzzle might be too long after all. Also if I’d use this on conventions it’ll probably be to bulky to move around.
So I dismissed the idea of this muzzle you see below. But it’s a nice technique to make this weapon portable and fit for the suitcase.
The wooden stock ond the base for the musket is also made with foam sheets and Cosplayflex.
Later on I edged a wooden structure into its surface to imitate wood.
This is the rotating part that has all the fun stashed away inside.
This magnetic steampunkish part needs to rotate like seen in-game, but also be able to light up, which was tricky to figure out. But I decided to let the whole build rotate on a metal rod.
And the Laser Musket is almost done!
It still needs a few weathering details and another piece of tape on the handle, but I didn’t have much time for the convention, so I went with it like this. The post weathered Laser Musket will be updated later.
