flechette launcher a CQB weapon for hunting jedi
« on: Nov 24, 2013, 07:55 PM »
Here's my idea for a flechette launcher a CQB weapon for hunting jedi. please excuse my extremely sad photo shopping skills.



this is just a rough idea, thinking about maybe 2 smaller blades on the top and possibly some lights on either side.

I see promise in this. Are you planning to have "actual" flechette rounds for display on your belts or gauntlets?

I wouldn't recommend using a Nerf gun as a base, but if you're talented enough, you can rock it.  The concept is pretty nifty, certainly.

that could really rock, despite Echo's reservations about Nerf that could work.
Just cover it all bar the handle like you show and you will be deNerffed  ;)

my thought is to weave a thick cobra weave with paracord around the handle then leave the bitter ends open and tie the saber crystals into it. I might leave the top loop though so a can clip it to my belt. speaking from experience holding your blaster or trying to find a place to set it down is a huge pain in the A$$ for long comic cons.

It is a pain to haul around everything. I think a back holster would be pretty cool. Pulss that will give you some wow points when you draw the weapon.

Agreed, but I have yet to see a back mounted weapon you can draw and then put away easily without assistance or it half hanging over your shoulder

This.  I only ever have my weapons combat-slung or in hip holsters.  You can get wild with it, but on the off chance you don't have someone around to help you out, you're going to be a very sad Mando.

You could also attach it via a Covertec clip on your belt or thigh plate; one of my clan mates has a sawed-off shotgun with a similar attachment method.

Also, I'd say a nice, tight leather wrap instead of 550 cord.  Personal feeling, there.

The giant bayonet, though...  Well, that has to stay.  I have a long-standing love of bayonets placed on things that don't really need them. :D

Hmm.. most interesting. I got a couple of these that I've done some light modding with.. mainly to test my epoxy putty... with the right inspiration I might convert it... can never have too many guns eh? The big bayonet is pretty sweet on that.

Progress on the Flechette launcher! today I tried to lay out the multi barrels for my flechette launcher.




Started off by grinding that front sight blade off. I then cut the tips off the nerf dart and stuck some wooden dowels in the middle of them. Next I put another set of nerf darts over the other end of the dowels.



Next I cut some 1/2" CPVC for my barrels and cemented them in place with the cpvc cement.

Haven't touched my blaster in a while! got caught up in the rest of my build but I finally sat down and got some work done!



Did a little bondo work and sanded the digi pattern and logos off. Denerfitizing!!!! I also got the templates done for the shroud and blade. I was just about to cut them out of PVC when I realized the time and decided it was best to save it for another day.




Still have a lot of work to be done but I have a decent idea of what I'm looking at! ;D
