WoodChuck here. OK, about those long shots...........Here is the longest prop I build. When all four sections are connected, this sniper rifle measures a full 60 inches, that's five feet !!
It is called the DC-15HE, or High Energy model. Used by Clone trooper Snipers. The suppressor on the barrel hides the muzzle flash, and silents the round. The power chamber generates pulses that can blow up any battle droid, land speeder, even small buildings. Pushing the red switch on the side of the power chamber lights up small LED's mounted on top of the site columns. The folding blue side sites guarantee accuracy from very long distances. The folding bipod keeps the weapon stable during aiming and firing. The receiver is the same design as the DC-15 long rifle, and loads the charging elements that travel thru the power chamber. The stock stores four power packs, each holding five charging elements.

I am sure you would have problems taking this anywhere! Even though it is not a "real" gun you would have trouble convincing a cop that! LOL! Very cool gun! So, it can break down too right? That makes it even cooler. I love my DC 15 because I can break it down and make a DC long or short or pistol. Works our really nice for different events
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.
Jun 23, 2017 16:47:16 GMT -5
profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
