    A few years back i made my first attempt at a replica prop. A GB2 Slime blower. knowing little about building props and with minimal tools and supplies mostly bought at home depot and other hardware stores i was able to make a pretty kick * Slime Blower. Here's how it started off. PVC pipe, quick crete tube some acrylic domes and a few solar garden lights.

    To give the domes some strength i filled them with foam, this also locked the mounting spikes for the garden spotlights in. A mixture of PVC plumbing parts, electrical junction boxes, flexible wire covers, and furnace exhaust pipes rounded out the rest of the parts.

    Not the best job but some bondo to get rid of the lip where the domes meet the ends of the tubes. Then a paint job over it. I found some non-skid safety tape with a pretty spot on design and used it on the main tank.

    A few pieces of MDF board and some metal brackets hold the side tanks and boxes to the Alice frame. The main tank was bolted and glued in place.

    Very cool. I was just watching this on AMC this weekend and thought, "I never see many people building those".
    Great job!

    there are a million places to find info on the proton packs , blueprints, photos of screen used, etc. but the slime blowers are sort of their own riddle. A lot of guess work and watching the movie over and over to guess the sizes and parts used, but that's half the fun.

    Just be careful and don't try to sell outside of the junkyard. It is a forum rule not to advertise selling or trying to make sales outside of the JY and mods can come down on you or ban you. Just a heads up...

    You can make a sale thread in the junk yard but you must be a premium member to do that.

    dose it work, as in shoots or blows slime? If not, suggest using silly string in the front of the barrel. All you'd need is a can without a nozzle & a mechanism to push the can against an exit hole.
