    Well, I did it. I had 3 days off so I built my Sandman Flame Gun that I've been wanting to build for years.

    Here are some photos let me know what you think.

    The pics are tiny and don't appear to be linked to anything larger so it's hard to get a good idea.

    Got a bigger image?

    No, It's just PVC pipe. I was going to put a flash unit from a disposale camera in it but the * capasitor kept frying my *. I never messed with these but I couldn't figure out how to seperate the flash from the circit board so I could place it in the end of the barrel.

    If you go to Richard Coyals website www.racprops.com he has a drawin of a flame gun and I just went from there. There is a member here that has one on his webpage and that is who I got inspired by. Please forgive me cuz right now I can't recall his name but here is a link to his site you'll have to look around for it.

    I don't know if it would be good for a resin copy but the originals were Krylon 1613 semi-flat black

    Ah Thank you. I will give it a try with a good primer and see how it goes. I'm waiting for the flamegun I got in the Junkyard but now at least I can get things together.
