    Spent a couple of hours today sawing the design out from 12mm plywood/multiplex.<br>It's not perfect because I'm not great with a jigsaw, but I should be able to just sand it down where needed.<br><br><img src="http://i49.servimg.com/u/f49/17/09/25/25/photo032.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Thanks for looking<br><br>PandaMan

    It would have been cool if you finished your piece then showed us because it would have made a nice sort of picture story if you get what i mean?

    Yeah. I haven't been able to do anything further than what is in that picture because I don't have a drill or any glue at the moment. I'll post pictures when the next stage is complete.<br>Thanks for the interest <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>PandaMan

    Okay, I'm reviving this dead thread now. I have almost finished. The rest is just aesthetics.<br><br>Here it is next to a 2l bottle for scale<br><img src="http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff450/PandaMan11696/Photo0315.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Here, you can see I left one of the bolts too long. This was an accident at first, but I decided to keep it that way.<br><img src="http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff450/PandaMan11696/Photo0316.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I decided I'd use anodised steel for the rollers so that they would not wear. Also it was readily available, so it was just more convenient.<br><img src="http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff450/PandaMan11696/Photo0321.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>The reason I left the bolt longer is so that I could make some screw on accessories, for quick and easy switching. Here is a foregrip<br><img src="http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff450/PandaMan11696/Photo0323.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>and here is a bipod.<br><img src="http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff450/PandaMan11696/Photo0326.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I plan to, after sanding it down a bit, give it a few coats of black spray paint. If it weren't plywood/multiplex, I would oil it. I might make one out of mahogany or iroko for use with weaker bands.<br>I also plan to add a scope.<br><br>Thanks for looking<br><br>PandaMan

    Geat job P.M. That bipod looks so cool.<br>I just have to advise you good eyes protection, be carefull for others and for yourself too. That toy can be dangerous. I like to shoot and destroy things with mine but i still don' t trust that thing because of an accident i had with it while i was cocking it.

    I got some 15mm steel balls today. They are fun, but I wish I had 6 layers of TBG... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
