I was thinking of using Irrigation Pipe Insulation foam, but I don't know what to put on the end.

Also: What type of weight should I use, and where should I place it?

Should I put on fins?



I know this is alot of questions, but help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You,

I only understood about a 3rd of that post.

Can you try that again, but, you know... at least make it look like it wasn't written by a 10 year old?

I think you need to put fins on there. You could make the fins out of duct tape.

What's Irrigation Pipe Insulation foam?

I make 'em like this:
Buy from Ace Hardware the ITP (aka Tundra) foam pipe insulation that fits 1&1/4" copper.

Experiment with desired weight and length, but definately use fins. I use 2mm and 3mm craft foam sheet glued together to make a 5mm foam sheet for the fins, which closely resembles the stock missiles. Angle the fins slightly so the missiles spins in flight.

You can either use really large fbr (like 2") or some smaller type of foam pipe insulation to seal the front of the missile. Add tape as needed.

Personally, I find the titan missles a little too bulky to carry around. Maybe you can make a smaller more compact version?

I like the sheer size/mass of the titan missiles. But by all means, make a smaller missile if you prefer it. The only trick lies with finding a compatible barrel.

I agree. Not only is it fun to watch someone run like hell the first time they get the missle fired at them, it's fun to scare the shit out of people with your mongo-sized ammo. I'm prolly gonna go to Home Depot or Ace soon, so I'll let you guys know how it goes.
