Ok some of you may have known that I have been working on a mostly PVC blaster for quite some time. Here is what I did:
I picked up some PVC pipe from Lowes (one 10' section) and I grabbed some scrap 1x6 pvc trimboard from work.
I resawed the trimboard to about 5/8" thick to use for the frame of the gun. I took some self-made templates as well as Wizardofflight's and made some tracings, cut and cleaned them up. I then went and picked up some PVC closet rod from Home Depot and sanded the **** out of it and slid it into the tube that I had cut. I put a notch in the end that would fit the top of the frame and used two screws to hold the frame to the barrell.
I then took some left over sintra and cut it for the receiver shroud (you know the piece the seperates this gun from any other revolver). I heated and bent it, and then used plummers PVC cleaner and glue to adhere it.
I then grabbed some masking tape and taped off the open should area and commenced to fill it with bondo. This made the entire assembly very rigid, like one solid piece. While the bondo was setting up and reaching the gel stage I started carving and shaping. Below is what I have so far.
Most details are still undone, this is just a very rough begining.
