The M40 HEDP grenade from the movie Aliens, used by the USCM (US Colonial Marines), as well as Ripley when taking out a queen’s egg sac thingy.
This HEDP grenade is a raw polyurethane resin that will require some minor finishing before painting. It is all one solid piece – the cap does not remove, there are no detonation buttons to press. I also cannot promise it will fit into any Pulse Rifle props you might have.
Main body width: 20mm
Base width: 22.15mm
Finish it, paint it then add it to your bandiolier 🙂
Trivia: The original grenade props were made from 12 gauge snap caps.
Stay tuned for some fully finished ones in the near future.
How I made this; Nomuse from The RPF released a design diagram I used as inspiration for creating this as a 3D model, which I then 3D printed, cleaned up, and created a silicone mold out of. Nomuse has a tutorial on how to create your own from metal (aluminium round bar) on a lathe – https://www.instructables.com/id/Your-First-Lathe-Project-The-M40-Grenade-from-Alie/
