The Rifle, Anti-Tank, .55in, Boys commonly known as the 'Boys Anti-tank Rifle' (or incorrectly 'Boyes'), was a British anti-tank rifle in use during the Second World War. It was often nicknamed the 'elephant gun' by its users due to its size and large bore.
This model was built from photos on the internet and from TV shows about WWII. It's as accurate as I could make it.
This is not a video game/VR resolution model. Over 100,000 polygons.
Modeled in Lightwave, exported into other formats.
Most of the gun is hardened steel, with a little wood. I do not own any textures so I uploaded it without them.
