    i've been looking at the papercratf version of this gun for ages but wanted a more permanent version so a few weeks ago i made a start using items i had laying about such as an old broom stick, some 3mm mdf, a food wrap cardboard tube, a cardboard poster tube and an apple tango lid.

    i have very limited tool selection so every little piece is taking forever,

    this along with a ruler and some wall filler is all i have, but using the papercraft files as a blueprint its coming along.

    need to add some detailed parts then i can start spraying the primer.

    any input would be gratefully received

    many thanks

    Not much, but decent pics. Apologies if these've already been shown. Some of these are from HBII - but as far as I know, the gun didn't change at all.

    That's looking great for a first build! I suspect you must be a natural at this.

    thanks for the compliments guys, my plan was to use a spray can from the £1 shop as a primer but being mostly constucted of mdf wood i'm worried about it peeling, it should be ok with even coats but i'm wondering if i'd be better off using a specific brand or type of paint.

    so far the cost has run at £3 all in but that was spent on filler, a new junior hacksaw and the spray can, managed to get some use out of one of my only power tools by drilling most of the material out for the end caps of the cylinder for the bullets to sit in, and also got the break lever stem built up just needs shaping and the thumb grip needs to be made then i can glue it to the catch.

    I've always wanted a Samaritan, excellent work.
    I've been looking for the pep files for this without much luck, any chance you could point me in the right direction.

    Cheers
