Hidden Blade

26 September 2009 - 11:57 AM


I'm going to be in a ninja :ph34r: gang for halloween, and my friend doesn't have any weapons he can use for looks. So I wanna make the Assassin's Creed hidden blade for fun and enjoyment. I figured you guys would be the ones to ask about this, so here we go...

if you pause at around 0:16 you can see basically what it's supposed to look like. But not EXACTLY like that, just in case you didn't know what I was talking about.

So far: The entire assembly is going to be mounted to a shinguard, with a narrow steel plate attached to it (lengthwise) to provide a base for the blade. a Keyring is going to be put around my middle finger, attached to the trigger. When I pull up on the keyring, it will pull up on clothesline with a pin through it going through a hole in the blade at the bottom. A cord tied to the back of the blade will be how I will pull it back in. The blade itself will be covered by a half of a PVC pipe cut down the middle, and I will put the trigger on top. The spring will be put at the bottom, kept in by the PVC pipe.

I know how I'm going to put the spring in, I just need a way of putting the blade on a track or stabilizing bit of sorts to keep it from wobbling around while it's not deployed. And a way of cleanly stopping it at the end to prevent it from flying off.

If anyone has any better ideas, go ahead. And yes I have seen the indiemogul video about the quick-deploy gun prop thing, and it seems waaay too bulky/expensive/heavy for my purposes.

And no this is not some stupid inane fanboy daydreaming, I want this for my friend because he doesn't have anything in his ninja arsenal and he's making the smoke bombs. So there. (and if this is in the wrong forum let me know...)

Recon/titan Integration

Goal: Recon with a Titan instead of a spring, keeping the clip.

1. I want to use the extra tubing in the titan as a means of extending the range between the pump and the tank, is there a surefire (pun) way to prevent leaks? Is there an easier way to lengthen the range between the two?

2. Keep the stock stock, or use a PVC stock? Where to attach the PVC stock to the frame?

I'll probably be asking noob questions about the trigger system later.

*warning* This thread is meant to aggravate and frustrate. If you have been personally offended by the opinions of others, defend your band!


1. You cannot say the bands/genres you like, you can only say the bands/genres you hate.
2. You can only say what bands/genres you like if someone else has mentioned that they hate them.
3. Give valid reasons why you despise or like the particular band/genre.
4. Nothing obvious (I.E. Miley Cyrus).
5. Mentioning a band as a correct version of a genre, or vice-versa, is allowed.
6. No insulting personally, only insult the band/genre.

Inspired by that lovely Blink-182 reunion thread.

I'll start: Blink-182 sucks because the singer has a nasal voice, the songs are repetitive and predictable, and they are trying to be rebellious.

Also, if anyone hates a band I like, good luck.

At2k Help

16 November 2008 - 05:05 PM

I just got an untouched AT2K from a friend, and I very much do not want to completely screw this up. My goal is to single it, I already looked over all the mods and ripped out the turret. I already went completely overboard and painted it black w/ green tiger stripes. Seperate problems are numbered.

1) Stupid thing I did: I cut off the section at the end of the pump, because I thought I was being OMG CLEVER by providing better airflow, then realized that the pump section is exactly the same inside diameter as the part I cut off. You can see the part I cut off in my hand.

That in turn causes a second problem: The section that is still there is the part that rests on the plastic piece in the shell, and that holds it up and keeps it straight. I am wondering how to glue my barrel onto the nub without glueing (<-- how to spell) it onto the shell. Should I just glue the piece back on?

2) Limited barrel materials. I have a roseart marker I smuggled out of school, a short section of 1/2 inch grey CPVC, and a whole lot of 3/4 and 1/2 inch PVC. I had to rip out come of the plastic that held the turret up to make way for the thick barrel I know I'm going to have to use. The marker fits snugly inside the CPVC.

Other questions:

How do I get rid of that stupid goo gauge without clogging or causing leaks?

Should I just rip out the air restrictors and use the barrels that came with the gun?

What is the optimum barrel material(PETG, brass, clear PVC), disregarding my current situation? It doesn't get cold at all and I handle my guns lightly.


I am a long time lurker, first time poster, I have been hanging around nerfers for about a year now. Yes, I know about cxqw's (or something) barrel material post. I have read through the modification directory completely, know all my guns and stuff. Thank you.
