About this Prop
- Construction Details:
- Alright, the actual work of Vulcan Raven went into making this gun. Myself and friend Hayabusa72 both worked on this gun, so I want to make sure he gets some credit We used a nerf vulcan ebf-25 as a base for the gun, mostly for the handles it has on it. We took the gun, and added 6 2-feet long 'barrels' of pvc piping, held together by duct tape and the base of a flower pot that we put holes in. Near the base of the handle we took the rest of the flower pot, riveted two cans to it, put some foam inside the pot to make it hold shape, and spray painted the whole thing gun-metal black. For the "battery" on the back, we used a standard garbage can, cut two holes in the back to put some heavy-duty strapping into it, as well as used the bottom hole to connect the "chain belt" to (the chain belt is 2 of the nerf-vulcan chain belts connected to each other.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This prop was my first real prop made, and the entire experience was a blast. Building this thing took a solid weekend with the help of one friend, and despite its pain transporting and carrying, it felt awesome. At the end, the entire thing weighs about 25-30 pounds, so it can be a bit of a hassle to handle, but for something that altogether cost under $100 bucks, I think it came out nice
