Kaboom - Proton grenade
« on: Dec 22, 2017, 08:11 AM »
So, i was wandering in my local home depot looking for generic stuff that could fit my costume, when i saw this pipe


I thought it looked kind of familiar, so i decided to build a proton grenade. I was going to build some kind of detonator anyway, so...
With my rotary tool i cut the unnecessary part


And after a little bit of sanding i coated it with a first layer of metallic silver paint


Just had 15 minutes, so this is what i did for now.
I might have some spare LEDs and other small electronics, so i will add them in short.

Aaaaaaaaand here we are, after some paintng and weathering
But i took wrong measurement, so the cap i made didn't fit. The electronics must wait


UPDATE
I finished the upper part and also the wiring is done.

This is the almost finale result, just need to add the side greeblies. The LEDs are much brighter than shown.

Thanks vod!
For the inner part i kept it as simple as i could. It's just a T shaped wooden support, with two threaded spacers for closing the cap with the bolts.
If you meant the circuit, it is just a 9 v battery, a resistor and 2 blinking LEDs.
