An item I no longer make, but Ya'All can have the full-size pattern to make your own!







Linked due to enormous, hires file size (1600 x 1280!):

It's an airsoft copy, and those are the full-sized patterns for making one, on my site that's linked above.

A step bit and a centerpunch are handy items to have for this project. we'll see the Scrollsaw a bit later...

Not seen in the next pic very well: First cover the sheet stock with contac paper. When you go to remove your layouts, you'll be happy you did. Get some spray adhesive and fix the prints to your chosen material:


Then mark and drill the holes. Do this with the parts still in as large as possible chunks. This will minimize fixturing, you can save a bunch of time doing this. Then cut out your parts using a Scrollsaw:


TOP SECRET: Use these, and only these, blades:
Vermont American #30423
(5" long, 11.5 teeth per inch, .045 blade depth, .017 thick.)
Cuts ABS and PVC like butter. Slow speeds are best for ABS.

Your freshly cut parts. If you're proud of your work, take pictures and show the world. Maybe show others how you did it:


Do a test assembly to make sure no fitting is needed.
The worst time to find out you needed to file an edge is after it has nice sticky glue all over it.

If everything fits, grab the glue or fasteners.

Maybe a coat of paint and some doodads:


You can make just about any bracket or other part you might need this way.

Print the files at 300dpi, use ACDSee to print them on 8.5 x 11". The parts will be actual-size.
You need about 4 square feet of 1/4" material (wood or plastic), and an airsoft M14 to make an M2. It will be the same size as a real one.

I get all my plastic from the nice, reasonable people at www.interstateplastics.com

Or go to your local plastic place.

Ask for a chunk of ABS, 1 foot square (say: I'ts gotta be within an eighth-inch).

Pay full price, no squawking. Be chatty, be NICE.

RIGHT before you leave, ask: "hey, you got any scraps I can play with? Nothing special, I just don't wanna screw the GOOD piece up."

They will LOAD YOU DOWN with free material.
Smile, keep looking like you don't have a clue what it's worth, even tho you now know.

Found pics of a late-model production Shrike. I got pretty close with just faking it!

This was a FUN project. I still have a FEW parts in the shop, I should build them up for the heck of it.
This page shows how far the "Shrike" project evolved:
