i made this to go along with my deus ex assault shotgun replica. it's a mini ambrosia canister
i made this prop entirely out of wood, and hand painted it by brush. what do you think?

Very cool! :thumb: You should make a second one with the Gray Death virus (red instead of green).

thanks :) i think i will make a gray death canister. i would love to make more and auction them off on ebay. i had an idea that i would make an ebay store, and sell some props and replicas i made. i already sold on of my 2 assault shotguns for $100 + shipping. it would be neat to have a little business. being artistic is the only thing im good at, so i may as well use it.

How about adding in a light to make the ambrosia shine?

Spot on, really well painted! You should definitely make some money out of them, it's great that you sold one for that much. I do a bit of carving, but using a swiss army knife without a clamp once nearly caused me to loose a finger :S

Great stuff! For the next one, how about using translucent plastic for the "virus" to make it less opaque? A light would be a great idea too.

Seriously though, great job!

thanks guys! and spy i know what it's like to nearly lose a limb, it scares you so much you just don't wanna do anything dangerous like that for a while. i grazed my finger in a bandsaw and it scared me half to death. and i was thinking, i could get a plastic or glass tube, kinda square, and fill it with green dyed water, and put a light behind that.

Lets hope MJ12 doesn't come bursting through the doors,kill you and steal the canister.

Kudos dude, you're a true fan :) How about for your next project you try an Augmentation canister? Possibly with a 'real' transparent plastic container filed with some blue mineral oil and some LEDs? Could be complicated but it looks like you know what you're doing. :thumb:

Sweet! Can't wait to see it.

Cue dramatic synthesizer music - Little did little pug826 know that his replica building would set in motion the events leading to DX3! ^^

And those events lead to the events of DX AND IW, which somehow in turn lead to Terminator-like happenings which set in motion a time-travel-riddled series of events leading him to create the replica in the first place, causing a causality loop, a predestinational paradox that tears apart the very fabric of the Universe. It may be that making the replica was not a good idea...too late now, though. Thanks a lot, you caused the destruction of everything.

But really, though, a truly epic win replica...if I wasn't a poor college student, I'd be ALL over that.

lol all the spoilers! lol thanks though guys! i really enjoy making replicas, so you will see more Deus Ex replicas from me soon, like an AUG canister, Security Terminal, maybe mini repair/med bots, different weapons (already made the assault shotgun though), LAM, gray death canister, etc, just a few ideas.

I would (maybe, no promises) kill for a replica of the spy drone.

Make the med bot and I will give you my debit card number and pin, you decide how much its worth. It would look amazing on my computer

For an aug canister, I would repurchase my soul, and in turn sell it again.

I always wanted to see a lava lamp ambrosia canister, make it so. I'll buy it off you for $50, despite being such a big fan of capitalism I'm actually lacking in funds.

I checked my bank account and found myself a bit short of the cash to bid on it. If you put it up for auction after September 15th I'll be ready and waiting though. ;)
