I saw this one ages ago and wondered if anyone here had built it? Or if anyone had built something similar?

The idea of having multiple barrels strapped to you with a cool switch board as your launch controls is awesome.

I've been toying with the idea of a pneumatic version of this but probably wont get around to it for a while but it will basically be 4 inline sprinkler cannons with multiple barrels and a battery pack to wire up 4 switches for the solenoid actuation as the launcher controls. The launcher will also be able to mount onto a platform that can turn 360 and can angle it up and down.

Has anyone done this here before?(NOT asking for plans!!!!!)

This was my inspiration :twisted:

Hrm, that seems pretty cool.

It really isn't anything special though, apart from mabye the harness.

True, though this cannon does have some fuel issues which could be fixed with a 4 way fuel meter.

yep as far as I can make out from the vid, he ment each cannon had one spray but he makes it sound like it has one spray as a whole.

It'd be better of just having four guys with four spudguns then it all in one, unless he has the velocity, accuracy, ammo capicity and ROF of a Ack Ack gun :D

Hmmm.........
This design would work nicely with 4 of Clide's GB semis to give you that 'anti-aircraft' gun feel. You could mount a compressor in the base of the gun and make it look 'self-contained' (except for the power cord for the compressor, of course).

:twisted: damn it I dribbled on my key board :lol:

The rotating platform was part of a sunglasses display case from work that we "chucked out" it did have an under compartment, however it wouldn't fit into my car as a whole. I'll probably just make some kind of stand for it. I start my new job soon so I'll be taught how to weld so it will probably be made of metal.
