Flintlock long rifle model for http://www.solidsmack.com/contests/solidsmack-awesome-sauce-design-contest
Designed in Siemens NX6
My model is mix of styles and periods as I used more then 30 images of different rifles to design it. Idea for making this model come to me after PARTNER 2011 exhibition, after i become member of My City Military forum, and find out that there is huge amount of informations about modern arms but that there is no good 3D model of old rifles.
Interesting detail from design process is that I measured parts in images in photoshop, to be able to recreate them in some optimal scale. But flintlock mechanism is designed to work, not just to look nice in rendered images :)
This rifle have .5 caliber 42" octagon barrel. It is 1" octagon with 1 turn in 59 inches polygonal rifling (this is ). The rifle is little less then 59 inches long. This model have single trigger, but I am working on double trigger in this moment. This model have smooth cheekpeice and no engravings.
