Priority project for now is a Mk16 SCAR-L. It's coming along nicely. A bit slower than planned, but it's nearing completion.

You may be familiar with the Paper-Replika SCAR-L model, which has been available for some time.
This model, however, is completely different, and its goal is to achieve a higher level of detail, sturdiness, and realism. The scale is closer to 1:1.

The sights are foldable, the bolt carrier is moveable, and the stock is foldable and extendable. These mechanisms aren't perfectly smooth, but they're turning out better than I thought they would. The lower receiver and stock can also be removed from the upper receiver. The gas block can be adjusted. The upper has realistic front and back plates, and the barrel is very sturdy, built the same way as my AKM V2 barrel.

The lower receiver is a placeholder so far, so the internals of that are yet to be determined. With 34 pages so far, the final project with the completed lower an a holographic sight might come out to 38 pages or so. It's not necessarily a challenging build, as far as weirdly-shaped parts are concerned, but it requires a high degree of precision and patience, because there are a lot of things that need to be perfectly aligned.

The grip and magazine will be used in subsequent AR projects. They're basically evolutions of the V3 grip and mag, but more realistically sized and better constructed.

Hi, Your work is amazing! Any chance of doing the South African R-1 (derivative of the FN-FAL) and the R-4 South African version of the Israeli Galil.

I've thought about it, especially the R4, and I'll definitely keep it in mind. However, I'll have to put everything on delay after the SCAR, so I can't guarantee anything.

Are you planning to perhaps at some point make hunting weaponry also? I've been looking all over for a side-by-side shotgun template or anything that would be even mildly close for customization.

Seems like it's mission impossible on that one, not even on he Japanese or Korean sites do they have anything, too busy with Gundam and Monster Hunter there, heh.

I don't have a side-by-side shotgun planned in the near future, but I poked around a bit on only-paper.ru and found an over-under shotgun. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me (pepakura says 'invalid path'). However, there may be other models of the TOZ-34 or BM-12 from STALKER floating around elsewhere (simply because some other weapons from the game have been made into paper models).

Alternately, you can settle for a pump-action shotgun or a Mosin rifle. They're not very optimized for buildability (and have long parts extending over several pages) but they can probably be improved. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful. There really does seem to be a lack of side-by-side shotguns.

Actually, I stumbled upon here specifically through lurking /po/ for a hell of a long time.

10/10 for your works over there mate, absolutely fantastic. Level of detail and effort put into them actually pisses me off, ha!

 You told somewhere you're working on a FN SCAR-L (Mk 16) for a comission. Do you plan to release it to public, or you keep it private to the investor?

Don't worry, I'll be sure to publicly release it.

At the moment, the completed parts are the magazine, grip, complete upper receiver with sights and barrel, and the bolt carrier & spring guide.
All that's left is the stock, lower (partially done), and the holographic sight. The stock will probably be quite complicated.

 Ok, nice to know it  :D
 Well, it's pretty understandable the Stock being hard, since it being collapsible and foldable, not to mention it's oversized compared to AR-15 stocks. As long as it's possible to the builder to internally reinforce it, i guess it'll work fine. I already made a prop submachinegun with a foldable stock that works wonders, but i had to reinforce it to lock properly in extended position.
 
 Oh, a holo-sight! It will be based in a real model? If yes, could you tell the base model? or it's gonna be a surprise??   :D
 
 Oh yeah, thanks again for the AK V1 and V2. Both of them can be easily reinforced internally without compromising at all the looks, or how each piece is built. Your job is Magical.  Thank You
 :D

It's supposed to be an EOTech 551.
