    StarshipTroopers Morita II Project

    Here is my next project...

    The Morita II from Starship Troopers. This type of rifle was seen briefly towards the end of the first episode of the Starship Troopers trilogy... the one that blows the top of the mountain off. ~8) I personally see it bang-on for a 40k-style Plasma Rifle, DOOM, Gears of War, Mass Effect, Starcraft super weapon, etc..

    Pulls are in-hand... just came in the other day.


    Here are some side-by-side shots of the original/master (darker one above), and the second pull out of the mold (lighter one below with red Bondo work).












    Raw, cleaned-up kit:


    Primed:


    Painted black, then aluminimum:


    Very lightly dusted with gold then a matte clear coat to dull it down:


    And now to detail it up with some washes and color blocking.


    Seams will be Bondo'd and basic clean-up will be done before each pull is shipped. I will review the pull in my next post, providing detail shots of mold lines, points that will need work, etc. It took me just over two-hours of work, some filing and sanding, to get one ready for paint.

    Heya, Dave!

    VERY nice work! I have to admit, the original Morita is my favorite, while this one is more in the "BFG" category.

    Thanx for sharing!

    Exactly... a BFG for any occasion!


    The first coat is resin, followed by a second coat with fiberglass filler mixed in to reinforce it. Then clamped to cure. More resin is poured in the sprue hole to solifidy the barrel tip, grip, etc. One piece when it's done, no assembly required.
