I get a 404 page. (That, I can build.)

EDIT: Your link was a bit off; I fixed it for you.

The arm itself, however, remains beyond my skill set.

It would be difficult to build that from anything but real metal, and it would take someone with skill in metal working and decent equipment.

not at all... it would be very easy to build out of plastic etc. and then fake the patina with dry brushing like the "dreaded nerf gun modders" i saw someone hating in a top list.



a plastic arm wouldn't be able to hold up to abuse, but it WOULD be way lighter.

i stopped by as i'm a left arm amputee myself
