After watching the phenomenal movie District 9 I decided to model the Arc gun used in the movie. Been quite some time since I did any real hard surface modelling, and this seemed like the perfect chance to get back into it.
The highpoly is almost finished, just some polish left, going back in and fixing a few areas that I am not happy with. Then its on to lowpoly and texturing. I think I will make it as a third person weapon (although a realtively expensive one polygon-wise) since the shapes in FPS view are kind of boring, most of the nice areas are hidden.
These are the two ref images I used for the modelling
