    Its totally is awesome and a grenade launcher but its very large (There is one at my local Target). Too large unfortunately to shoehorn into the space i have. At the moment im thinking about putting a 3 round revolver barrel in there in the style of a maverick or spectre. I believe a spectre barrel is just too large, but it would be nice :)

    Thanks Alecgates15 for the idea. Im still thinking about it and very open to ideas.


    Cheers.

    Ok quick update:

    Ive found something that im comfortable with installing and will fit. Its a single shot Lanard Hand cannon that shoots large darts. I figure if i cant get the reload thing happening, ill "use more bullet" :)

    Quick update, im working on the barrel and stock now to try and keep some momentum going...

    Ill need to adjust the bottom of the battery compartment to join/flow a little smoother to the stock.


    Cheers.

    Holy crap, that is freaking awesome. I tried turning a Vulcan into an MG42 once. Nerf mods are pretty difficult.

    wow. just wow. I like this project! keep it up!

    The best I'm hoping to do at the moment is something warhammer 40k-based, but don't have access to muchin the way of materials, so it'll probably just be a plasticard shell over a recon or maverick. that is certainly less advanced or impressive as this!

    Quick update (So many little fiddly bits... *sigh*):

    Front barrel bracket. I might make the ring in epoxy sculpt as the barrel is just a little bit off centre... I know its there lol! It will have to be good enough tho.
    5816856939_040d603a22_z.jpg

    Trimmed the stock so it fits over the rear of the stampede. I think 2 peices of thin mdf bonded to the stock should keep it solid, and from there i can have hand tightened screws to take the stock on and off (which will include the battery cover.). Ill Dremel in some vent style holes to keep to the rest of the gun (Damn and i have to do the front vent holes... not looking for ward to that at all.).

    Thanks guys!

    @Mstruvmgc, it really helps keep me on track and focused when i see amazing comments like this. Cheers :)

    @XULUX11, did you try to make a barrel mod clip for the vulcan as well? I may or may not have aliens on the brain atm so it could very well look like the Smart Gun from Aliens :)

    @Captain Shrike, you could try for a fair recon/bolter conversion with a template for the curved clip :) My next project will be a Storm bolter i think...


    Cheers.

    Big update! :) Ok im not too happy about the angle of the barrel but all things considered, i can live with it. Needs a bit of work but its coming together.

    5888867749_c8b49a0f75_z.jpg

    The GL nose will need to be attached to MDF mounted in the front of the GL barrel.
    5889437394_5c3c29583e_z.jpg

    Made an MDF copy of the stock and will dremel it out and shape it the same. I think down the line i may try and make a collapsible stock but i just want this to work first. To-do list: Add the vent holes, mount on the MDF part, then mod the rear of the Stampede to accept the shape a little better (Straight *grin*).

    AMMO COUNTER! This is something ive been putting off for a while but as someone else in the Hackerspace made thier own (with a barrel lightgate) i figured id start it up again. Once again the programming side is a complete struggle for me so ive pulled in a few favours (Thanks Adam and Lachlan!).

    A bit of sanding, 'enbiggen' the hole and it should be a good nose peice.

    fan-fragging-tastic job on the build so far.... ya know with all that warping i'm kinda surpised no1 has tried taking the pep templates and traceing em on regular plastic sheets and building it from there... with all the flat edges and stuff it would be easier

    Yeah this guy has done just that. Total respect to him too, its so clean and certain things actually function! http://www.therpf.com/f9/dorks-fanmade-pulse-rifle-building-111645/

    I think what could have been better is a sculpt for the grenade launcher as i still have to dremel out the vent holes... and from memory there are 30+ *sigh*

    But yes, thanks for the kind words :) Im still trying to keep progress going on this, even if its just little bits at a time.

    Cheers.
