I thought I would share with you my current build of a complete VX Gas setup from The Rock. So far it has been a painstaking process finding the exact components to make it as accurate as I can.

below is a picture of the screen used gas string:-

Here is my effort so far:-

I have tried to be as accurate as possible using the filling for the pearls as well as having an inner tube running through each glass ball which you can just about make out from each Photo.

Four more strings to go and then I can start work on the container which I have just laid the primer down onto:-

Thanks for looking.

Very cool. To add some extra detail, if you've got a soldering iron, you could add a tiny bit of solder onto each of the red wires where it connects to the metal ring.

Slight update on the outer container, I managed to get the first coat of paint on and the graphics also arrived on adhesive vinyl today.

once I’ve got the second/third coat dry I’ll get these cut and applied.

Dude. You're killing it. This is such an iconic prop and you're nailing it. I love the contrast of the delicate, beautiful, deadly string on the inside and the military weapon-vibe of the outer container. Beautiful attention to details on the bead string. And the outer container is one of the more terrifying looking things I've seen.

Thanks man, I’m taking my time with this as I want a fully functioning prop once I’m done (not including melty face). :)

Great job! How did you make the pearls and what is inside them? Thanks!
The pearls are 40mm glass balls which have a 3mm hole at each end which I injected the green substance into. I used Banana Boat Aloe Vera gel which is what they used in the original movie as I understand.

Hi NITROX. My name is Sergio and I'm from Spain. I found casually this forum and I really love your work. It's possible to share with me your drawings and details? I want to build my own VX nerve gas and your version is really great. Can you tell me where did you bought the cristal pearls, please? I'm looking in a lot of shops but I can't find it.

Please, I beg you to answer me by email, because, I was so difficult for me to find this web and if you answer me here, maybe I will not see your message. My email is luthier_@hotmail.com

Thank you so much for your time. Best regards: Sergio Ruiz.
Sevilla, Spain
