BLU Medic (The Medic)

I am a BLU Medic - cause blue is my favorite color and I don't see as many BLU Medics. Also I'm generally BLU loyal in game.

I intend to make the Syringe gun, but for now I got my medipack, medigun, and bonesaw. I worked hard to make the medigun game-design accurate. There is an up-light in it which turns on/off with the switch under the gun. :)

The gun is made with pink insulation foam, thick cardboard tube for the barrel, electrical pipe for where the barrel screws into the body, and wood for the handles and side discs. There is also an all thread bolted through where the top handle slides.

In all the gun only weighs 4.2 pounds, very light for a prop of this size / stability.

The backpack is all foamcore with soda cans in the transformers, it's reinforced with 1/2 thick foamcore where the straps go in, and where the tank connects. The lid comes off so you can store light things inside. The pack + hose weighs only 1.2 pounds.

I altered a Neo Matrix coat pattern for making the coat. I reduced the flare, shortened it, and cut open the front / extended the cover flap. I made it in ONE DAY, the day before my flight to Houston where I met friends to go to Ikkicon with. :'D Worked all day!! It's inside seams are all surged, so it's single layer and looks nice.

I made the patches with fabric. I also made the tie.
