thank you very much everyone, i had only built co2 cartridge cannons before, and was not thinking fully.

i have added more piping to act as the pressure chamber.

i have added a palmers sideline reg so act as a saftey for the tank just in case orings blow or whatever.

the safety relief valve is in the mail

and i got a bit ahead of myself and painted it.

currently it dry fires, but i have no nerf vortex rockets and my tank just ran out of air. i will try a paint load this sunday and come back with results.

Hmm It looks great but the chamber is still pretty small but nonetheless you don't need to much power for safe fun/
