I'm here. The place sure has changed.

So I played too much Metroid, and, round about the time I got to Elysia in Prime 3, I also acquired a Barricade since it seemed cool. Elysia instilled in me the desire to steampunk something, and it didn't take long for the Barricade to catch my eye. The result:

I upped the voltage to 7.5 volts, not exactly pushing it, but it works much better anyway. The battery pack on the side feeds the flywheels. The one on the bottom, meanwhile, powers some green LEDs in the upper middle of the shell, where the holes are. The circuit includes a rotary switch; you can see it in front of the battery hatch. Why green LEDs? Because that was when I got the Nova Beam.

Not too flashy, but noticable.

I didn't post a full writeup because adding two AAs to a flywheel isn't news, and neither is a spray-paintjob, so together they still shouldn't be too deserving of one.

PM me with questions, comments.

Don't really know if it's a modification or a homemade, but here it is:

I did post a separate thread for the writeup for this, if you're curious.

I love metriod and that is awsome.

Thank you for your misspelled praise.

Glad to see all the feedback. Thanks, guys!

@Chadpuff: I don't know if it's worth posting a firing video since it doesn't look like anything when it fires. I pull the ring, dart comes out. All the motion there is either inside the cannon or too fast for my camera (which is my phone) to capture. And barrel tapping is not too effective with this since it only adds a few inches to my reach. The ragged edge of sheetmetal might cut the tappee pretty good too; it certainly did a job on my hand while I was cutting it. Fortunately, for the safety of all others at wars I bring this to, I put the ragged edges facing me. So my upper arm'll get shredded, and you'll be OK.

@Blue: Thanks for the advice; I can probably mount the craft foam right to the tank if I do that.

@SonReeceSonJensen: Yes, to pump it, the pumps come out the back, at about my elbow but to the outside a bit (to allow me to rotate my wrist and the cannon. It actually feels really cool to pump. And, about the MegaMan cannon; YES! I could make a second turret and sleeve (maybe with more barrels/longer barrels) and make them blue, so I can shift between the two styles. Hmmmmm...
