How often am I floored by video game replica props? Not often…and I see a ton of them. They’re usually decent, but rarely do I ever see something that looks absolutely perfect. I mean ZERO mistakes. The two guys I can name without trying are Harrison Krix of Volpin Props (http://volpinprops.blogspot.com) and more recently Zander Brandt of Zprops (http://zprops.blogspot.com).
So that’s the reason for this post. Zander has a Maddock prop for pre-order that is draw-droppingly accurate. I encourage you to check out the build notes here on therpf.com. http://www.therpf.com/f9/mass-effect-2-3-m96-mattock-heavy-145892/
As you all know, I’m a painter first, fabricator second. I hope you’ll support this kind of work so we can see more awesome stuff from Zander in the future. I know I can’t wait to get my hands on one to paint myself, but that’s just me being a geek at heart.
Here’s a shot of his own build and paintwork. Just outstanding stuff.
