View Full Version : Smith&wesson
S&W .45 automatic
This is the last thing I made.
A lot of boolean operations and tweaking but i think it was worth it.

Nice, I take it that it's stainless steel and not blued. What model is it? You might change some of the safeties to steel also.
It should be Mod 4505. I used a plastic replica as a reference and it was black.
It would be hard to see details on a black gun so I've made it gray. It could be machined steel or even aluminium.
I tryed with safeties and trigger gray but i think this looks better.

hmm the mats an the gun look like plastic. Maybe add a bit of shine to them. The modeling is good though :)

Nice work, I've always wanted to do a relistic gun, yet i've got no idea of where to start. Im a horrible modeler.
Try buying a toy gun and something to measure it with (this is not a joke, that's what I did). If it looks realistic it will be a good start.

If you live in the US, you'll need to check local laws about toy guns, some places don't allow them.
I made another version of a gun for a comparison.
The steel one has some shine (specular level 170, glosiness 10) but it is brushed and I didn't want polished look on it.

this is great reference. I'll look at the gun someone in my family owns (unloaded ofcourse). Maybe that will help.

hmmm.. u shoould change the textures of it :) its looks odd, but very good job a modelling :p peace
Only textures that it has are bumps on the handgrips and engraved text and serials. Did you mean that?
I think that odd looking metal surface has been taken care of.
