Equinox design UPDATE: More pics and a video!

Unread postAuthor: Extrusion » Wed Oct 04, 2006 9:58 pm

I was bored so i started to design a cannon i called Equinox wich i am planing on building in about 2-3 weeks i drew a diagram in paint post any suggestions you have :D

I might make a propane metering system for it to depending on how much money i can get.

The name Equinox just popped into my head i might paint a Solar Eclipse on the chamber and paint the barrel black with white dots on it for stars :D

this will be my first real project to.

'The gun is almost finished but the project is no where near complete'

Ok ive finished the gun did a few test shots and its looking pretty good now.

- Finish Gun - DONE
- Add Duel Ignition - DONE
- Add Grip With Trigger - DONE
- Paint gun - Not Done
- Make Propane Meter - Not Done
- Add Silencer - Not done
- Add Chamber Fan - Not done

Sorry about the black and white pics i had to do it to get the size down.

Video(Bad propane mix so the shot sucked compared to what it can really do :roll: ): http://media.putfile.com/Picture-or-Video-016
