Fallout 3: Bottlecap Mine

Bottlecap Mine, a Fallout 3 weapon made out of a Vault-Tec Lunchbox, a sensor module, a cherry bomb and a handful of bottlecaps. Very powerful and also suitable for overkills in The Shady Sands Shuffle style.

Build notes:
This one requires a little more than just papercraft skill, as it needs wire for several of its parts (handle, antenna, colored wires). The best kind is a 1mm wide aluminium wire, for the colored ones it's slightly thicker.
It's good to build the main parts (lunchbox, sensor module, handle), then wrap them by the duct tape and finally add the details. The handle holders should be a little longer than what's in the model, otherwise you might have trouble getting your hand under the handle. And don't forget to reinforce it.

Height: 243mm (with antenna)
Difficulty: 7/10

Included are lined and lineless PDOs, also a set with outline padding.
