"What is the question when the answer is extinction?"
Here is the Nemesis Star, an exotic machine gun from Bungie's hit game Destiny. This prop prints at over 3 feet long and sports a removable ammunition drum, printable ammunition belt, and an opening shroud with hollow scope and full interior details. The model includes channels for reinforcement, making the machine gun sturdy enough to carry around and cosplay with. If you want to make a big impression, this gun will do it.
Thanks to Gerry Alden who was kind enough to print and assemble the prototype shown above, making sure everything works properly and letting me know about the tweaks and changes that needed to be made.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Pinshape's individual model uploads are limited to 100mb (too small for all of the little parts), so I had to upload the ammunition belt and ammo drum separately. Never fear, I have included links to download the additional files below, and also an assembly guide with pictures to help builders.
You can download the ammo drum files here:http://www.mediafire.com/file/... You can download the ammo belt files here:http://www.mediafire.com/file/... You can download BOTH here (very large file):http://www.mediafire.com/file/...

REVISIONS: If I update any files, I will upload them and leave a comment.

I recommend downloading the assembly guide first if you'd like a better idea of how everything works. If you run into problems, comment or message me and I'll see what I can do to help. You can see my other work here: https://www.facebook.com/Indig...
