Pictured above are replicas of an AER-9 laser rifle and A3-21's plasma rifle from Fallout 3. Creator Ryan Palser has posted dozens of photos showing the creation of the plasma rifle, which lights up for a very cool effect.
A3-21's plasma rifle is easily my favorite weapon even though it pretty much breaks the game. It's the super-weapon for which there is limitless ammunition and easy to keep in great repair. The detail work on this replica of it is beautiful. My favorite part are the bent switches on the barrel housing. Great work is being done here.
