Three D Guns - Shoulder mounted ion canon
I started modeling one of the designs I liked but I wasn't a fan with how it was feeling so I ended up starting over with a different design.
While working on the grips I took a lot of inspiration from flight sticks.
Here is what the finished optics looks like. I spend some time looking at optics on different military weapons like the TOW missiles and Javelin missiles. There is no lens on this because It interfaces with the weapon and uses the lenses on the front of the cannon. I added more details the the turbine body. I took much inspiration from military jet and commercial aircraft turbines.
I did some layout designs to come up with a story for this weapon:
- My first idea was for the gun to be hanging on the wall of a pawn shop almost forgotten. This is post war and the gun that was used to win it now sits as a forgotten giant among other items like a diamond in the rough.
- My second idea was a garage workshop where the weapon seems like advance technology sitting among basic items.
I decided on a workshop environment as I thought it would fit the backstory of my gun better
