Presenting: GGB. Ghetto GunBlade Mark 1 ***56K***

Post by HotDog-Cart » Wed Jul 25, 2007 10:54 am

Hey, for the last few days I got very bored. So I decided to make a gunblade from Final Fantasy 8. This gunblade is based on Squalls revolver gunblade. It didnt take long to make either. 2 days at max.

(Next. I'll be making Seifers gunblade out of wood. Its going to be a near replica of Seifers gunblade.)

Materials:
"Nerf"-like foam
PBC pipe
Plastic Revolver
Gorilla Glue (Way stronger then superglue)
Black chisel tip Magic Marker
Duck Tape

Pictures. (Sorry for the quality)

I hope you guys like it. Questions? Comments? Hate speechs?

Neat. Be careful though, people might mistake it for a really long silencer. :P

Haha, I was told the same thing from my freind. :D

I need to work on this somehow though. I had 2 of these, and when I swung my last one it broke right at the part where the glue (white) is at.

How could I prevent breaking in this one?

Yea, use stronger glue. Totally makes sence when Gorilla Glue is the strongest multi purpose glue. Its like expensive for a tiny bottle. More then $25.

What about plastic glue, the kind for models that liquefies the plastic and melts them together? There's no single-best glue for everything.

Well, even if I bought that. This glue cant be broken off. Its harder then rock. Also, I dont feel like swinging it to break it off as the gun base might crack like last time.

Elmer's Ultra Glue is great for every material, including plastic. When I used it and needed to remove it the plastic broke before the glue joint. :lol:

Where the hell did you go that you got charged that much? Does Canada have Lowes/Home Depot?

Yes we do. They carry Gorilla tape, I know that. Never looked for Gorilla glue, and it's not on the website. I'm assuming they have it though.

Remeber that some items can cost 15% more in Canada due to various factors beyond my current caring-ness. That's a word.

So if a bottle of glue costs $10 to you, it could be $15 to us. Not including taxes. Then taxes just for Ontario. Or the exchange rate. That makes for a $18 bottle, nearly double.

But that could very well be an exaggerated rate.

My dad said it cost near $20. I've seen it at home hardware for $25.
