I'm going to risk getting yelled at and chop up a link to make this post. I'm sorry I just don't have that much to say and would rather not clutter other threads trying to fill out another 8 posts.
So I got the urge to model a new version of the gun tonight. Took me all evening but I think it's good enough to show around. I wanted to do this in case I ever get the urge to do a complete image with characters and everything.

Like I said, it's not supposed to be a copy of the original, but I thought I'd ask for opinions. Too many details, too few? Is that organic piece on the top clashing? I don't know if you can see it, but yes the two light emitters are built to extend back in, and I changed the x-ray screen so that it flips up when used and lays flat when not.
