SPUDr my version of the SPNKr

Unread postAuthor: paintballninja » Thu Nov 29, 2007 2:11 pm

hey folks, i'm new to this forum & this recreation/hobby whatever catagory it's placed under, anyway, a friend & i were watching the special features of a movie & they messed around with a spud gun, & we thought,"that looks easy enough to build" so we did, we both have one & i'm hooked, here's my first one & i say first because i've got about 5 other designs i'm gonna try to build, this one i'm calling the "SPUDr", based off of the "SPNKr" rocket launcher from the Halo game series, i could have gone double barrel but like i said this was my first attempt at a spud gun, there are a few little asthetics i need to add (paint, graffics, ect) but for the most part it works pretty well, i'll have more pics & hopefully some vids up soon, lmk what you guys think
thanks

looks good for a first attempt, could use a bit of structural thingamajigs and a lick of paint to look more like its namesake but you're well on the right track :)

Good for a first gun :)
And also, its always a good idea to copy things from Halo, coz... wel you know... Halo is just awesome.
Make a second one (exact copy) and stick em together to make the dual rocket.. erhm.. potato launcher.

If you post it next time with a propane injection system, that will be pretty cool considering you're a fairly new member.

yeah i've been doin alot of research, got most of my inspiration & ideas from youtube, http://www.advancedspuds.com, http://klugeboy.net/, & of course on here, apparntly there's alot more to spud guns than ppl think, i for one had no idea it could get so intricate & complex & yet be so simple & inexpensive at the same time

It is pretty nice for a first cannon. I can't wait to see the upgrades. Oh, and I love the name.

Looks good for your first gun! Its also nice to hear that you went around and did some R@D instead of asking to be spoon fed.

Keep up the good work!

yeah, the smoking wasn't a bright idea on his part, i dont smoke so i dont have to worry about it, i'll make sure that doesn't happen next time, that design had a few flaws as i quickly found out, there's not much room for the exahaust gasses to escape so my next design is deffinitly going to have fans & removeable barrels, i had to change that design to a basic setup, (large screw on back cap) looks like a regular s-gun now but as soon as i get the parts i need i'll start construction of the good version of my SPUDr (double barrel), i've already got some of the parts including a couple of bernzomatic propane bottles, i may go with mapp gas later on though, all i really need is a few more pvc fittings & some propane fittings, that'll prob be next weekend, i should have it at least started within the week, i'll post pics & vids when i can, thanks for all the input guys
