Hi everybody!
I've been coming on the lair since the beginning of 2009.
This forum is a huge source of inspiration for me. So much talented members !
I decided to start my predator costume 2 months ago.
I precise that I am french and I live on a french island (Reunion Island) in Indian Ocean near Mauritius and Madagascar, so it is not easy for me to get some good stuff to work with, but I keep trying...

Here, my cannon I made from scratch : a water gun toy, PVC pipe, some parts from a "Tau ship" from Warhammer 40,000, etc.
So be gentlemen with me please, this is my first post !

1) the cannon from scratch, you can see the differents parts I used. I also put some bondo on the top because I wanted to make a mix between AVP and AVPR design.

2) and here the cannon with a primer coat

3) Finally, I painted and weathered my cannon but I still have to underline the glyphes on the top in red / orange like the wolf cannon. I apologize for the poor quality of pics...

Actually, I am working on the cannon arm using Vinman templates. I will post pics a.s.a.p.
Thanks for looking.

Looks as though you're doing just fine with the materials at your disposal. Gun looks terrific.
Good luck with the rest of your build and welcome if you're a new member.

Thanks all for the kind words. ;)
Effectively, it cost me only the gun, some paint cans and bondo... Less than $12 I think.
I keep working on my costume. It will take some time but I take so much pleasure doing it that the time does not matter !
I will post some update soon...
