Allright, I ordered an N-Strike set, but I wont have it for another week since I shipped it to my house and need to pick it up.

Ive been running ideas through my head for Titan homemade ammo, but in the end its futile since I dont have any on hand. What Im asking for is a few measurements on the missile from someone who has it. If anyone can help me out it would be awesome. I just want to get some refferences for some of the ideas Ive got to see if it will work.

Total length
Length of the dark foam (back to the grey ring)
Length of the tip (the orange and grey on front)
External diameter
Internal diameter
Length of internal shaft (how far the Titan goes into the Missile)

Rad, thanks.

I assume the hole in the center goes all the way through the dark foam section?

I wonder if some tipe of PVC pipe insulation would do the trick. Maybe use Sculpy Clay to make a tip?

Yeah, life sucks, but it does guarantee a trip around the sun every 365 days.

I actually made some for my titan, I just don't ahve any pics of it. Mine are made outta pool noodles without the hole. All you need is a drill press (or a drill and a damn steady hand) a 1 inch hole saw. Just use the hole saw to drill a colum straight down. Then cut another section and just carve it into a cone-ular shape. I think I used 3 3/0 size lead wieghts for the wieght.
Then just finish it off with some foam craft sheet for fins. And remember that rectangular fins vs. triangular fins make no difference.

Dan's idea is actually one of the ones I was looking at. One thing I was thinking of tho was putting a sheet of foam or something on the inside to smooth the rough pourous edges from the drilling. My other idea for this is perhaps some sort of thin plastic such as that from a 2L soda bottle which would have lower friction than a sheet of thin foam. The cells on those noodles are pretty big compared to any nerf foam Ive seen, including Ultimator rockets, so I figured putting something on the inside was a good idea.

How did you straighten the noodle? Ive been trying to figure this out, and my best idea so far was just to cut it and stick it on the titan and then try to heat it up some, but it would really need to be straight before drilling is the problem. Another idea I had was to secure it to something straight and leave it outside like many people do for stefans. I just have no experience trying to deal with noodle foam. ^_^

Im also working on other ideas for the tip, but I dont know if any of them are going to pan out at all, so Ill just keep quiet for now.

That reminds me, I have one more question, is the tip hollow like Ultimator rockets, or is it solid? If so, is it heavy?

2.5 inch pvc is the ticket. Just cram it in there and let it sit.
