^^ Stupka Kartoshki III (Potato Mortar III, its Russian, cause Russians really know their artillery) ^^

Talk about big. 4x55" chamber, powered by a Sears two stroke compressor, and can reach 100 psi. Currently it runs only with the sprinkler valve, which is severely limiting its power. The CAD file shows the plans for the SKIII with a Super Dump/ Coaxial valve. The barrel shown is the planned 2" 8 foot barrel, designed to shoot 1.5 PVC rockets. The barrels in commission right now are a 2" 3' barrel (my first one with the SKI, it had a backpack air chamber and a hose which severely limited its power), 1.5" 5' barrel, hilarious with a plastic woful ball bat, it floats like a blimp. Other uses include the Flamethrower from Hell, I've been crazy to only try this one (see Spud guns New Zealand). 1.25" 10', aka the elephant gun, because that's roughly the sound it makes when fired. I need to reinforce it as it is so long it sags. It shoots 1" PVC shells, I once shot it at a tree BLAM the shell exploded and rained PVC chunks everywhere. And to top it off a 3" 4' all purpose barrel, fires cans wrapped in duct tape. More pics to come.

^^ TT-1 (TT for 'Tater Troopers, the standard weapon of the elite potato punishment force :P) ^^

Its a very small, lightweight gun, but it still packs a nice big punch. The chamber is 2" dia 4" long, and the barrel is 1" x 8". Perfect size for shooting dowels and C batteries. Add some paper towel wadding and you can shoot rocks, paint balls, super balls (BOING!), and anything else you can fit in there. Its also incredibly fuel efficient. A very quick spray of hair spray is all you need, and my cousin also figured out that a lot of the time you can get a second shot without refueling, just stick the ammo back in and fire. More pics to come.

Here is a future gun that Mark Green (a.k.a. spudinator) will be making.

The gun featured up top is made of 8" PVC chamber and barrel, and 4" fittings and pipe for the rest. the one above and to the left is the same gun with all the barrels I hope to make available for this. And also, I used the rhinoceros version 3.0 to do this.

Couple of them are actually pneumatics. Stupka Kartoshki III is a pneumatic and the one made by spudinator is also pneumatic.

What program do you use to make these 3D models? Is it free?

And also, I used the rhinoceros version 3.0 to do this.

Yes, it is also for free. Downloadable from Rhino's website.
