BRS Gun Tutorial.
This is a tutorial for how I constructed the gun. Large scale prop. Lights are not included as I didnt document it (doing at 3am) and others may find a better way to do it as theres a barrel already ready for it. More pictures from the shoot will be up soon I hope haha.
Some additional info:
Pipes are 4 inch and 8 inch respectively
Tools used are dremel rotary tool, Proxxon Foam Cutter, Bosch power screwdriver.
Most of my connection are done with screws from 1.5 inch to 4 inch long. You may use glue instead.
You can hotglue foam, just dont let the tip touch the foam.
Iron on technics can be searched online (monokote in youtube). Paint is cheaper but a much messier and longer procedure.
Total took me maybe 30-40 hrs for construction and layering. This is not 100% complete yet though haha.
Side note: The canon is very heavy. 1.7 m high and weigh probably 8-10kg. Extremely durable barrel but foam parts may fall off if handled roughly. The plastic coating that is done of the foam protects the gun but is extremely costly. It cost me 3 rolls (each about 25). The only damage to the plastic was a rock punching a hole at the barrel tip.
And if you have problem viewing, just download it will be better. DA is really bad this days =/
