would magnetics work (they'd have to be very powerful)

any ideas???

Well, I am imagining you are meaning "Attach."

To answer you question, you could always do it like the Indians did, and tie it around, like have a strap to a sniper rifle.

Or, you could make another prop weapon, attach it to your back, and have it for just looks. :)

Hope this helps.

Cheers!

strapping wouldnt be the best solution in my opinion. the only thing i would change about the way the kid attached the rifle to his back is the detail that master cheif had it at an angle not straight up and down. but then again that all depends on the placement of the actual magnets. cool speaker design too i really like!!

i need to pick up the pace on my suit construction. looking forward to using the magnets in my suit!! thanks for the wonderful info!!

yeah and you could do that by positioning your magnet at the angle

I think you need to edit your post so that it can become a sticky, if none other on this is on the board. ;)

I love the idea about the magnets. It would add more realism to it, but the strap sounds pretty cool to. I like both!

okay i changed the title, oh and the add realism to the magnet you should hid it, or when casting the part cast it with the magnet/magnets inside.

you dont really have to cast over the magnets i guess, with the fishtank cleaners they are strong enough to stick together even with a piece of 1/4 in glass between, im pretty sure its no different with plastic or fiberglass
