"Boy, sure would be nice if we had some grenades,
(and some knives, and a big gun, and a funny hat made by Ma Cobb,)
I decided to build them after seeing the BDM Serenity on DVD in early 2006.
I wanted them to be really screen-accurate.
Then I found out the spring was a much larger diameter.
Eh, that was OK, mine would still light up when they were popped open.
Then I found out the movie grenades counted down when they opened.
So, my grenades sat around like this:
for about three years.
But recently, I've decided I need to wrap up all my Firefly/Serenity unfinished projects.
So I finished the grenades that they just pop open when you twist 'em...
...which is still pretty cool.
