1:1 scale GALLANT H-90 pistol/rifle

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine is an awesome Prop builder so I asked him to build the H-90 Gallant and to make it Modular as a one off for me.

I am aware of a project to make the Gallant for sale, however with import of RIFs to the UK, figured safer to just find a UK based builder.

So with a little artistic license, Rare Earth Magnets, a Very stable and solid modular GALLANT weapon.

Next step is now to find a Hard shell case for display/transport.

I do have plans for a CV-3 armour set too.

Very cool prop but it definitely shows the biggest problem with the design, the tiny grip, you can't get all four fingers in there.

I think a smaller person may find it easy. I am 6ft 6 with XL hands. So kinda of like LUNK. So weapons built for the average person do not always fit my hands as comfortable.

Still I am so Happy to finally have a Gallant Prop that is modular. Now the plan is to extend the range with more from the Macross/Mospeada/RT world.

Even when I was modeling it for my figures I found the handle to be small. Also the stock was too long as it went passed the shoulder of the soldier.

Exo need to get some of your SHAPEWAY goodies. BTW I was the one asking about 1/18th purely to customize with my CM Braves LOL
Though would love to see these done at 1/100 scale too if at all possible?

Doing the stock was the fun part. In the end I went with 15" long so should sit nicely in a shooters shoulder (does for me and I have it pulled in) so a smaller person would be more akin to your figure and the animated series.

Thank You for the very kind words.

Ah! Cool. Yeah... at 1/18 it'd be totally way to much to print out. I'm already experiencing some thin walls at 1/72. I think 1/100 would be pushing it. I can certainly upload it but I can't guarantee a good print.

The stock too longest to model because the side didn't match the profile. It has that curves all around it and especially towards the back. At the end I could have just drawn the profile because at that scale no one was going to see the detail.

I certainly am not afraid of a little clean up on the 1/100 CVR-3 troopers. Though hey who knows it may just work out ;)

Exo, You have plans to do cyclone with rider and maybe just the Cyclone. Again 1/100 I hope will be one of them ;)

The stock didnt help from the drawings above so as said measured my fore arm and went with the 15" and tbh I think it works a treat.
