    how to make a halo magnum

    It's pretty good, but I would have painted it more like the reference picture, probably painted it black then masked the handle and the bottom of the end, and used grey on the rest. Also you really should have used paper/cardstock to cover the sides and give it some detail. The trigger only needs to be one layer thick, so you should have made it 5 layers, had the first one be the full stencil, and the rest be the stencil without the trigger.

You should also note that after the thick part on the top (the top laser sight) has nothing after it on the top, so you can actually have a little laser light(which can be just some bottom to an eraser that has cardstock on it). If you do decide to follow these tips, and you get the paintjob down, you could sell this on etsy for like 10-15$, which considering it's made out of foam board is a LOT of profit. Just saiyan.
