I suppose I could. That will eliminate the elbow, but how would that save dead space? Also, getting the length of the CPVC segments is pretty tricky.

in theory, this could work, especially since the cpvc wouldn't be operating in a pressurised capacity (ie as a tank), so you wouldn't need to worry about compromising it's integrity. However, bending pipes with heat guns is iffy at best, and bending them to the tolerances needed to both fit the shell and achieve a tight seal to the turret... well, I wouldn't try it, but you're welcome to!

EDIT: ugh, ninja'd


It wouldn't be worth it for deadspace reasons because the rotation mech is preventing it from traveling along the hypotenuse. All you'd be saving is maybe a 1/4 or 1/2 inch on height. If somebody in the future wanted to try and keep everything in the shell, it would make much more sense to just use some type of tubing that is already flexible.

But enough conjecture, this blaster is pretty sweet as it stands. You should try to give it wings and a couple more King Ghidorah heads.

↓ Awesome! Like Monster Zero, this blaster is gonna be a total badass! Also, I didn't realize that the cpvc was bracing the turret, that's actually a good thing since it probably helps a lot with the seal.

I don't think that would work - the rotation mech is actually braced against the upward air pipe. Normally, it's held in place by a green bushing on the missile tube, but once this mod is performed, the air pipe serves this purpose. I feel like a flexible tube would jam the rotation mech and eventually get sliced through, but definitely give it a try!

Wow...
I really, really like this mod.
It's just screaming to be rearloading...
I'm sure this is very intimidating on the battle field.
Nice work...

Rearloading and a pump replacement do seem to be pretty popular requests. Because of the sloppy way I closed up the turret, rearloading is impossible, but I could add it if someone would give me a replacement turret (wink wink).

I'm still trying to find a good place to drop a new pump. Any ideas?

I would maybe use the bend in one of those straws with the bendy top ends to "straw mod" the elbow and cut down on deadspace.

Also a pump replacement doesn't really have to go anywhere, just stick it in the spot the current pump is. As for rearloading, I don't know how fucked the back of the turret is. Pics would be nice.

Hope this helps you out man.

EDIT: Found a pic:

That's what I meant.

The problem with flexible connections on the outlet of any firing port is that they're ... flexible. When the blaster fires, it will absorb part of the energy.

This is so added to the list. Great work. That is quite a beast.

I think he is reffering to the straw mod on the mav: Putting it inside the plunger tube, in this case the CPVC. Wrapping it in tape a bunch of times and gooping it into the cpvc connections might improve ranges.
I really like this, I hope beserkers come to Canada soon.

As for the pump, just do like Rork does with his decrapified MMs. The pump can be in the same place.

Just for clarification, you pump the gun, cycle the shotgun style grip at the front, and then fire?

BS: Sigged momentarily

Maybe I missed something...but you removed the spring plunger system? I don't see why you would do that. The best feature of the blaster is that you have long range and high ROF. You still have long range and decent ROF, but not high ROF. Was it a space issue or just an issue with the handle or is it there and I'm just mildly retarded?

It is a brilliant idea and I like it, but I think it could be better. My (unfinished) version leaves it in the center but adds a Marvelous Salvo to the turret for a Seoul Style Smackdown (wow, I feel stupider for having actually typed that...it stays).

Why didn't you leave in the spring system, but just direct the BBBB part to the top of the turrect as you did? it would allow for both, since one fires from the top, and the other the bottom. The only problem is barrel length.

I thought about that, but decreasing the inner diameter would also restrict the airflow. While the elbow puts in a lot of dead space, the 4B tank also moves air very quickly. I'm not sure on this - does the restricted airflow outweigh the dead space?

Exactly! The pump action is still fully functioning.

I took out the springer for a few reasons. First, there's no way that pissant little plunger tube would manage to get a dart down a foot of PETG. Second, it would make the blaster harder to pump. Third, it increases the number of breakable moving parts. Finally, the LSFG handle doesn't have two triggers.

And of course you'd add a Marvelous Salvo to it, Seoul. You put Salvos on fucking everything. That's a really good idea, but 20 isn't a multiple of 3! That kind of thing bugs the crap out of me.

This station always takes requests! You suggested, I listened. I present to you... Daikaiju! Mark 1.1! Now with 100% more basketball pumps and rearloading!

Mmm, Spalding. I sawed off the pump tube and glued this puppy on with a big wad of epoxy putty, a la Rork's Mega Missile Decrapified. The tank's full in 2.5 pumps, 3 if I feel like living dangerously.

A close-up of the rearloading hole. To prevent losing darts, I made this chute out of thin aluminum plate.
