This was months ago so I did not even own an Ironman Rocket yet but I knew I had to get a piece and find a way to make Super Stephen. However, I now can fire them from this baby here.
This is one piece cut in half to fit in my car. 4” diameter, 8’ length. My cat is “helping” as she often does.
Using basic math to figger the size ratio of a 1” Stephen I cut an 8” length with a Hacksaw.
I used a ¾” coring bit I got in a lock drilling set. This is the exact diameter of the Ironman tank barrel. I had to make several goes at it as well as scraping the inside with a spade bit to get enough material out.
I shaved the end with a small hacksaw to at least imply aerodynamics.
TIP: After some carving I got rid of the rough edges and evened it out by holding it over the flame of a gas stove for 2-3 seconds. I imagine a campfire would do as well.
Add a little aesthetics…
Ranges: 30-40 feet. It is low because the Bullet Bill itself starts to tail and spin and become emblazed in suck.
There are many improvements possible
• Proper way to weight the tip. You can contribute here http://nerfhaven.com...=0
• Fins or the like
• Length change
• Internal material removal variations
• Firing from a barrel instead of like it is here
Discuss! Or flame. This is not exactly something to be used in every round, but when you see me rolling up with a pillow case of Bullet Bills know I’m gonna do everything it takes to put one in The Core or square into your chest while you reload.
