so i decided to take the bull by the horns and try and make my own

so i had some pipe in the garage so i used that for my barrel

i had lots of reference pics of the AVP cannon, so i decided to go down that route...

i printed out a pic of one of the cannons (in 1:1 scale)

and cut out the bits to you as templates

then i used the bottom of 2 children fruit juice drinks bottles for the round cannon end

wrapped the ends together in some soft foam

i glued on the round end piece and tops and bottoms to the cannon

That turned out great man! And you just used plain old PVA (Like School/craft glue?) to coat it? I'm really surprised by the results. I didn't think it would coat it like that. For being so simple, it looks amazing.

Nice work and thanks for sharing.

Dude, that is sweet! I guess spending less doesn't always mean your pieces will end up looking cheap; your pieces are coming out awesome my man!!! I've spent way too much money looking for the parts I want...when all along I could've gone your route. Great job!!!
