That cannon by the name of "The Last Blast" is just what kind of cannon I'd like to build. A tennis ball firing cannon! :)

Now just let me see about the supplies...

O sh*t...

Heres the thing, I went threw all the cannons entered, simply right-clicking them and selecting 'open in new tab'. So I had all the guns strung out in one FireFox window. From there I judged, and quite frankly your gun wasnt in the line up. *woops!*

Super sorry... Dang now I feel stupid.
:oops:

*pops some anti-depressant pills [not really]*

Yes! I got ~5th in almost every category.

Probably woulda done better if I painted it, eh?

Oh well! I bet if you graded my in-progress hybrid, it would get aesthetics. I made a wood-charred and polyurethane coated wooden base for it.

Congrats to all winners! Don't slow down though, keep building!

Mark, you only took 5th once. You won out of the combustions twice. Quite simply you cant judge all the guns on 'portabilty' for example, because quite simply the combustions would all win. Catch my drift?

Yeah im sure we could start up the same type of thing. Although if anyone so cares as to listen to what I have to say, Id like to see more 'custom' work. That means machined components, different valve designs, straying from the typical orentiations [Gorts backpack combustion is a great example of that], and just breaking the norm. Quite honestly thats why I thought highly of Reapers metal hybrid.

Frick! I already replied to your thread. I will not continue this contest, if yours continues, because between the two itll be two damn cluttered to handle. I mean how long did you give me to reply? Slightly over 2 hours?!

As to the details of the next contest, that will all need to be discussed. Ill throw together some new rules in the near future, and post them for discussion.

SpudStuff, dont be bum hurt. Yours was cool in concept, but literally it was a dangeling mess of brass, and other components. Just get geared up for the next competition.
