Recommended Posts

i mean the original DOOM 1993 plasma gun, i'm currently making a 3d model in school for animation class and i need better images than just the picture of the gun it was based on and the side-sprite. here's a pic of what i had yesterday, i've adjusted the length and size of it today. and i added a grip at the bottom part.  i'll show you what i have gotten done tomorrow.

Waaait a minute... so on the toy, the other end is the barrel? I'm just looking at the curve of that trigger. I'm so confused. Is it like a mini rocket launcher?

why is the grip on the top?  as that gun is in that picture, the bottom would get too hot to hold

Yes! It's actually a big toy gun that can be split into two smaller guns. Here's the full package:

I've always wondered about the image of Rambo holding an M60 with what looks like a rifle grenade. The old Rambo 8-bit game had a more correct image of Rambo holding an RPG:

Rambo.jpg

 

But the Sega Megadrive had the M60/RPG hybrid. It's as if an artist was given some messed-up reference materials - or instructed to make the gun more aggressive-looking - and everybody copied that instead.

 

The back half of the toy seems to be based on the M60D, which was the helicopter-mounted version of the M60, with spade grips and a rear-mounted trigger. The modular construction might have been a reference to the Stoner 63, or it might have just been fanciful product design.

 

Here in the UK Rambo-style survival knives were really trendy in the 1980s. They had a compass in the handle and paracord. They were usually really badly made, with the blade welded onto a very small tang, so if you tried to cut something substantial the blade would break off. After the Hungerford Massacre they weren't fashionable any more (which was odd, because the only widely-circulated image of Michael Ryan shows him wearing a smock, not combat gear, and there was no indication he ever saw either of the Rambo films).

 

Er, Doom! Doom Doom Doom.

Damn I definitely traded some lunch money or begging my mom money to my friend for that combat knife 20+ years ago in the playground.

 

I didn’t realize he probably had the whole set.

 

I wonder if the knife is still at my parent’s house.
