Awesome project!
Youve already got yourself the gun with the most awesome looks possible.

Paint? why paint? I like to raw unpainted colors as it is now.

How are you going to feed it?
Or will it not be running at the standard 6000 rounds per minute (100bps) of your average motorized Gatling weapon?


Looks good so far!

Actually 60 BPM is somethin’ to sneeze at, on the other hand 60BPS is quite an impressive ROF. ;)

depending on how large your air source is... you could have a massive vortex block for paintballs... but then again that is a little ridiculous....

bare aluminum is ugly as sin. Its getting powder coated Flat black.

I think the Vortex block for paintballs would take a tad to much air.

This thing goes in a Tank, and its run off 2 scubas.

What position does it fire at, 6 ‘o clock?

You mind explaining exactly how you going to have it work?

And I agree, bare aluminum is uglier than all get out, flat black should be slick.

What? Bare alluminium looks awesome!
But thats just me...
Flat black may be another option, but I would vote to keep it as it is.

Oh well, it will be an awesome gun anyway.
Squirting out paintballs THAT fast is a cool thing... :D
