    I have begun work on my PVC blaster, using a variety of photos of the real sub machine gun and different stormtrooper blasters. I will be the first to admit " No its not Cannon, but there were some modifications i felt necessary.
    Overall barrel assembly

    If you click the image button above, you can get the pics to show up. Regular image tags don't work on this forum. ;)

    Example:

    Great progress so far.

    [IMG] is an invalid tag on these boards. You can use the "image" button from the tool buttons above the Message composition window, or type the tag as (image=http://...) replacing the ( ) with [ ] :)

    Blaster's looking great so far!

    okay since people have a problem with the way I post my pics, I simply won't post any more in the prop section. As far as I'm concerned the moderators can lock this thread or just delete it. I never said anything about any tags not being valid. My issue is with the way certain people reply to threads.

    Good Bye

    Hmmm, I'm not sure why you're reacting so defensively - I think people here are giving you nothing but praise on your work and some help on how to post images in the thread so that they show up as thumbnails. I don't think anyone has a "problem with the way you post your pics", just trying to offer some help. I see nothing wrong with the way anyone in this thread has replied except your own negative reactions to perceived wrongs that just aren't here in *THIS* thread.

    It has nothing to do with posting pics and for 99.9% of the reply s, I do appreciate the feedback. If you had someone who posted that your stuff was made out of cheap material or implied that i would not make something (IE. that i was just b.s.ing people) then you would understand , Then again this is not the place to be having this conversation

    I really like the way your blaster is turning out.

    Are you by any chance following a tutorial from the PVC Blaster builders Club?

    I used the templates for the holes and other cut-out from the BBC, but there is a lot of info I got from pics of the real gun and lots of other pics. The info in the tutorial is good but there is some info that would make it a lot easier for a beginner that was not included. I would still like to give a High-Five to the Tutorial author , otherwise I wouldn't have tried this.
