It was a post-apocalyptic style production... I named it 'Mad Maccers'!
We had a production meeting and the director began by saying "I want eight Kalashnikovs". Bearing in mind it was a cast of 4 with a budget of about £100 for props I managed to get him down to 2 (plus an assortment of pistols we already had in stock). Then, just as he was about to leave at the end of the meeting he said "Oh, and we need a rocket launcher"..........!

Well naturally - what else do you follow 'out, out damn spot' with but a rocket launcher?

They are indeed Smithys bullets, did consider a belt of deac rounds but would have been very heavy. Not to mention expensive.
Plus I had experience with them from my previous project.

Smiffy's bullets are pretty good actually. Especially if given a light dusting with various brown and silver sprays.
Very much liking both the projects Leadmill, is that a railgun of sorts there?

It is actually part of Macduff's costume - you should have recognised it.

I'm debating on wether to paint silver tips on mine. It would be worth it. But there are hundereds of them!

Gather them all into a bundle, dip them in a bucket of silver paint and then stretch them out again to dry! Or just run a load of masking tape along them and go for it with the spray can.

 Too funny! In my part of the country "maccers" is short for macaroni. That puts the title dangerously close to "Mad Maccers and Cheese!".

Ahem,

People - anyone here interested in this?

http://www.therpf.com/f9/weta-dr-grordborts-custom-raygun-contest-111355/#post1603868

I was not a signed up member of the RPF forum, until this came along and so now I am and I have my nude gun on order for the competition.

We can not only paint them, but modify them too!

Been a member for years, and have also just pre-ordered a Naked Gun.

Looks like a fun summer ahead!

Now that *does* look interesting! I think I shall have to get one and have a little fiddle Smiley Smiley

Edit: It's on pre-order. I think a nice cup of tea and a sit down near the drawing board are now required.

Hmmmmmm intriguing!

Unfortunately I know time will not allow the sompletion of this project... not with two steam s.... um, costumes for the Asylum to put together! Almost worth entering just to get the naked gun though.... will there be a sequel or two I wonder? ( Wink )

Lovely - glad to see we have some Brass Goggler's on board for the competition.

I look forward to seeing the pictures here later in the year - or we may trigger a new 'Righteous Bison mods' thread by then.

I am already thinking just how over the top I could go (would it convert to a blunderbuss with the addition of a timber stock and long barrel?).

Having spent nearly 18 hours trying to pre-order an unpainted R-B I have finally overcome all adversity in my joust with the Forces of Darkness. Or, more plainly - I used a different machine that didn't disagree violently with Weta's checkout process.

No matter; it looks as if I will be having a bash at this. To quote Hedley Lamarr; "My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention."

Or, more aptly, Ogg; "I've got an idea, formin' in my 'ead."

The Grordbort-Bellinger 'Officious Aurochs' takes nebulous form in my imagination...
