They said be creative… they said go out of your way… well… I delivered!
Ladies and gentlemen, emphasis on the ladies ;) , I present to you “Jealousy” the heavy crossbow that was introduced in Monster Hunter Frontier G back in 2013 when they announced the collaboration between Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry.
The Weapon can be seen in action in the announcement trailer in the following link:
Jealousy was modeled to be easy to print, the mechanism may seem to be complicated but all the heavy work is already done due to the inner shell of the box which maintains and enables the Gatling gun to rotate. Furthermore, the weapon can be operated using either a printed crank, or your handy power drill!
Jealousy transforms from a handbag into a monster hunter heavy crossbow in less than 5 seconds.
Jealousy requires NO support what so ever to be printed, as long as you print in the original orientation which I’ve prepared already in the files from the download list. In addition, the assembly process doesn’t take more than 2 minutes. You could resize it to be bigger if you wish with ease, and it will still require NO support.
The skin of the weapon can be changed to whatever you may desire, simply download the PDFs and use the die cut lines for you as a reference when you want to adapt your own design.
You may print it on sticker type paper or regular A4 paper and use the corners to hold the skin to the crossbow frame.
It is optional but you may use tiny magnets in order to make jealousy snap when closed and to hold the corner pins in position to hold the skin if it is printed on regular A4 paper.
It took me couple of attempts before reaching the final model I present to you here exclusively on MyMiniFactory, and I would definitely appreciate if you post photos of your prints if you ever plan to do your own stylish Jealousy crossbow. Furthermore, I would really honestly appreciate if you do not sell it or upload it to other websites. We are here to make our imaginations a reality.
Finally, I can’t really describe how joyful I feel now that I actually made it, I’ve always been a huge fan of both games, Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry 3 alike.
In the end, thank you MyMiniFactory and Capcom for making this fantasy a reality., this is my 5th and Final entry for the Monster Hunter Competition. And as always, May the best Hunter Wins, cheers!
