    If you're doing a run it might pay to get a roll of this type of flexible metal conduit.

    the hoses look like bathroom shower hoses. nice and cheap and very common in the uk.

    Yup, shower hose seems the way to go for "cheap", one in the UK

    or one in the US (not sure where you are)

    Looking forward to seeing the finished item!

    Oh Man I had a great day today, I got the shop up to 85 degrees. So I did some bondo work on this thing and I got the rear of the thing just right.





    Thing went so well today I even got to play a little with my DC-15. This thing is so close to being finished now I'm very excited.



    The last few weeks have been really hard for me, And now just one great day later my whole outlook on life has changed. I hope there are more days like today around the corner.

    Your Cyberman gun is looking really sweet, can't wait to see it finished. The DC-15 is looking fantastic too you're one talented guy for sure. I know what you mean with the life stuff, sometimes it can really suck, then you have a good day at the workbench where something finally starts to come together and it can bring back that will to live again, LOL!

    Oooh, those are nice. Good and chunky, must be a real hefty thing to lug about. Must be lovely to work in a warm workshop, my garage is slowly freezing over :-)

    I'll be vacuum forming the bulk of the item in 1/8 abs and adding the detail stuff after. It should be less than three pounds when finished. perfect for a costume convention.



    Thanks for having a look, I'm a fan of your work as well .

    Really looks perfect, can't wait to see one finished up. You going to do a "Rose" version too?

    I don't know if I'm going to do a "rose" one or not. I'd like to, but things have been going unbelievably bad for me for the last four or five months . If I wrote a book about my life no one would believe a word of it . It seems like the impossible happens everyday now.

    I have a few pieces I need to get finished right now, and I need to finish my roto-caster before I start on anything else.

    Thank you for all your support and interest in my work, It really makes me feel better about things when I get to do stuff like this and people notice and encourage my efforts.

    Thank you.

    It would certainly be worth thinking about as I don't think there are too many mod's mainly a load more detail pieces at the front (see images). I think the "Rose" version just looks better somehow mainly the barrel tip looking less like a joined piece of fiberglass and more like a real weapon I think!!



    Sorry to hear that real life is being a pain right now but at least you have the comfort of your prop building to fall back on (when the aforementioned life allows). BTW you're not John Connor in real life are you that might explain a few things !

    I prefer Mickey's gun over Rose's. Her gun looks like a large hot glue gun, or a caulk skeleton applicator.

    A great big gun is a great big gun though :-)

    Personally I just think Roses BFG looks more finished than Mickey's (glue gun or not ). As you say though a great big gun is a great big gun whatever finish it has!

    Yes please, that would be wonderful. Screencaps are useful but there's nothing like a few shots taken of the actual prop.

    Thanks for offering.

    Wow, they are wonderful images, really you can see more of the gun than you'd want to on screen (and thats excluding the label) .

    Thanks very much for taking the time to show them.
