I was commissioned to build the Laser Pistol from the video game “Fallout”. The client requested a light in the muzzle and sound when the trigger is pulled as well as a working battery compartment and two batteries that could fit inside.


The replica was built from MDF, wood, and plastic and featured a removable battery, moving trigger, muzzle light and firing sound sampled from the game.


You can see a full build description HERE.

    That looks great ! I really appreciate write ups like this from people such as yourself and Volpin. I learn alot from you guys and appreciate your willingness to share ! Do you have any Ideas for a source for 1/4″ mdf ? I have used up my stash and cannot find anymore around here. Also, do you use anything to seal the mdf once it's shaped ? I am STILL trying to get some details smoothed out for casting my Ion Blaster but it's kicking my behind ! Thanks again for sharing you're build, it really looks amazing !

  2. You can get easy-to-handle 1/4 sheets of 0.25″ and 0.125″ MDF at your local Home Depot. It's cheaper to buy the full 4' x 8' sheet but who has room for that sitting around?

    I seal my MDF with shellac. Use a bunch and it soaks in and hardens the outer 1/16″. Then when you sand it, it smooths out fast. Usually there is very little putty work to be done.

    BTW, be sure to wear a respirator when sanding shellac-treated MDF. Both are VERY VERY BAD for you.

    Awesome, I'll ask home depot if they can order it since they don't have it in stock, and I'll try that shellac suggestion (with a respirator) ! Thanks again !

  5. You are too kind! I still have plenty to learn myself but you make progress with every build. Prop making is a journey, not a destination!
