This was a resin kit that was put together by my friend Duncan. Duncan mostly does science fiction models, but he really went the extra mile to make this pulse rifle cosplay ready. The had parts that did not stand up to assembly and he had to scratch build some parts and well as fill in a million voids that appeared during painting. It has a powered counter and a two dozen bolts. It may shatter someday, but these bolts will never come apart. The Pulse rifle weighs 7 pounds.
