Nice start, you can never have enough flame throwers. I particulaly like the handle and the inclusion of the pouch. Ideal for keeping servicing tools like jet cleaners and wot not.

Band aid for cloth wrapped hose. Now that is a work of genius. Can we have a close up shot please.

...

Sure thing,there you go.I wrapped the 'Bandage tape' around the plastic ribbed tape to make it look like old fashioned wired piping,i then 'antiqued' it with black waterbased paint diluted and rubbed on with a cloth.

  Where is the trigger located? And what did you use as the basis for that fitting at the breech end that connects the grip and frame together and hooks the hoses to it all? I hote the use of a metal water flask and its bicycle-mount clip as the fuel flask.
  I speculate that some pressure means is included, or that it runs on a gaseous fuel.
  VERY nice work and welcome to the creative community!

Excellent ideas, Soggz!

At the moment,i am looking around for an 'in-line' type of valve and guage to put between the cannister and gun.That will then act as a type of 'trigger',more really a fuel flow adjuster.Wink

I like the flamethrower, but I have to say I like the knee pads more for the simple reason I toyed with the idea of doing something similar but wasn't sure how it would turn out. Now I know it would have worked...  Grin

The knee pads are from a company called Oregon.They make chainsaws and stuff and are safety pads.I wear a pair of them everyday for work (but not steamed up ones).The 'rivets' are furniture nails pushed through,as the pads are just plastic,and the nail part of the rivet is simply bent over with a set of 'long nosed' pliers.The pads were sprayed with Ford Gold,and then the high edges were highlightened with vauxhall copper paint from a rattle can,and then the whole pads had 'penny black' diluted emulsion paint rubbed over them with a cloth sparingly to get into the grain of the plastic...I thank you.

With Stollen you get fat fingers so you can't type.
Mmmmm, stollen.
