    Jan 2, 2010, 3:12 PM - Homemade Gatling/Minigun #1

    Hey guys,
    I made this about a year ago, and haven't really done anything with it yet. I originally made it as an addition to my WIP boba fett costume to make kinda a "heavy Fett" variant, but since I'm still working on the rest of the costume, it's just kinda sitting in my attic. So today I decided to take some pics just for fun.
    It has 8 barrels, which is 2 barrels more than the standard modern minigun.
    It is carried by the handle in the middle, and supported by an additional handle in the back which also sports the mock trigger button.
    The whole thing measures about 3 and 1/2 feet long, as indicated by the measuring tape in the last picture.
    So... tell me what you think

    Not as much as you might think. I built this in about a month's worth of free time, just building alittle at a time. As far as expenses, I mostly just used stuff I had around the house; some wood pulp board, some witches and brackets, and ALOT of 3/4" pvc piping. in fact, i think the only parts I had to buy (specifically for this project) were the large boar PVC pieces that make up the tanks, and some flat black paint.
    This thing was really fun to make, and even more fun to show off. I'll be posting some better pics shortly.
    Thanks for the compliment.
