So MissKittyBoo was in need of a freeze ray to finish off her Dr Horrible cosplay. I was happy to oblige.

So I started coolecting bits and pieces for the build.

I then measured and cut a box out of 10mm MDF then routed off the corners and primed it and placeds a rod through the middle to keep it all together.

I then painted the box satin black and painted the pvc parts silver using Rustoleum Aluminium Metallic. I then fitted the handle onto the box.

I then fitted the side elements. These were made up of some pvc plastic clear tube and 4 l shaped irrigation corner conduits and an Blue LED Array board.

I then dremeled the rod down to be the length of the box when closed.

I then Uesd a core saw to put in my PV sockets for the barrels. The bottom accessory is a pop up spinkler ripped apart and ech part is used somewhere in this build. So the ring around the thin barrel. the strainer is placed back into the pop up sprinkler but on the outside pointing forward. The top of the sprinkler is bolted to the box so that the short barrel can be fitted easily to the box. The idea is that MissKittyBoo will be traveling with this prop via plane interstate so it had to be disassemblable.

I then fitted some switches and an arcade button (as the trigger). The first switch is to power it on and off. The second was to turn on sound (abandoned this feature for now) so the switch is unused for now.

Ok so the switches get fitted

Then I fitted four LEDs into the L shaped irrigation conduits and hot glued them in.I fitted 4 random colour changing leds to an acrylic lens I had bought and fitted it in to the pvc barrel cap I bout for the end of the main barrel.

Then I wired up all the of the LEDs and painted the barrels silver with Rustoleum Aluminium Mettalic but I had an accident and had to rub it back and start again.

Then I fitted the barrels and fitted a 9v battery and resistors on each of the LEDs. Once wired up I assembled it for a test.

Then I had to have a photo with it myself. oh and I fitted a handle to the top for easier carrying.
