Yey! A REAL Update!


Last year I decided to re-make my entire Team Fortress 2 Medic Get-Up, in an attempt to make it more accurate, less fragile, and make the Medigun lighter (since the old one was WAY off-balance and quite heavy for a prop!)

I believe I succeeded in making it more accurate, and it is definitely more balanced... but still heavy :(

Simple but difficult at the same time.... Almost the entire Gun is made out of PVC Parts and Components. Starting from the front - The entire thing is solid PVC is Putty filling/shaping (to get the cone structure towards the front.) If you wish to see how the from was put together - go to my scraps and I have a few WIP images there.
A PVC Inner structure continues, but is Hidden by wood. (The inner structure is just a pipe.) The square section with the cone is a modified PVC fitting, with a Square Wood frame with the edges rounded off. The little notches sticking out is plywood glued on, and the bolts are just Rounded Nut Heads glued on. The handle is wood and is glued in to the box structure.
The red section is a wood structure - with the PVC tube running through the middle. This is the heaviest part, and was meant to help off-set the weight of the front. The black circles on the side are just just out wood PVC circles painted and glued on. The handle is solid wood, and there are carriage bolts running into the box structure and bolted - so it is very structurally sound.
The tail end are PVC fittings put on the end of the PVC inner-structure, which also houses the battery pack. (For the lights.)
The bottom still includes the seldom-seen and known about toggle switch and Red/Yellow wires. The front electronics is a circuit which contains a large Red LED in the center, and 4 strobing small LEDs around it to give it a nice solid and pulsing effect.

In total, it probably cost about 100-200 in materials, and about two weeks of construction time.

Next up - I will get some pics up of the new Medipack!

This is some extremely impressive craftsmanship-  seriously, in just two weeks you made that? That is unbelievable!

And if the amount of accurate detail wasn't enough you got a light to work on the end as well, that's just epic!

Oh this is awesome...attempting to make my own but i'm not a crafty-ish person so I'm having some trouble. It'd be amazing if you somehow put up a tutorial, but this was 3-4 years ago...
