French MAS 36-51 Low-poly 3D model
French MAS 36-51 Modelled in Blender 2.78 Cycles Render
The MAS Modèle 36 is a military bolt-action rifle. First adopted in 1936 by France and intended to replace the Berthier and Lebel series of service rifles, it saw service long past the World War II period. It was manufactured by Manufacture d'Armes de Saint-Étienne (MAS), one of several government-owned arms factories in France. Because production was initiated late in 1937, not enough MAS-36 rifles were available to arm French infantry when the war broke out in September 1939. Mass production finally caught up after World War II and MAS-36 rifles became widely used in service during the First Indochina War, the Algerian War and the Suez Crisis. Altogether, about 1.1 million MAS-36 rifles had been manufactured when production ceased in 1952.
The Rifle modelled from reference pictures and almost all parts of the MAS 36 modelled as possible as similar with the real rifle. There can be some differences between real one and model because of differences on pictures and also because of low quality reference pictures.
The French MAS 36 Rifle is a low poly model and prepared for games. It is not ready for Sub Division purpose for this reason, if Subsurf division is applied, the model may deform.
All other formats (3Ds, Obj, FBX etc.) exported from Blender 2.78, for FBX, it can be guaranteed that there will be no problem but for other formats, no test applied and therefore, there may be some unexpected problems. In case of such problem, please let me know and hence I can prepare the corrected one within 24 hours and send to you and also upload to the CGtrader.
All textures included to the file and can be downloaded. Some of the textures has been prepared by using Photoshop and GIMP and in case of request, I can supply Photoshop files.
In case of request, I can also prepare the rigged version of rifle with free of charge.
In second layer of Blender file, you will be able to find a WWII French Binoculars. (Textures of binoculars is also ready, just has not been rendered for this study). It is just a gift model of this file.
