Thanks for the comment. I was very pleased with how it has come out so far. Yep always looking to make things look better. And Yep already working on a larger head that is closer in shape to the real thing I have to make 2 for the Febuary game. I also need to add the sighting/fireing mechanism. Even though it doesn't really function it is alwasy nice to add as much detail as possible. And speaking of that have a line on the stenciling for the side of the tube and the warning label on the warhead itself. The color is a little off on it aswell so I may repaint it soon.
It fires nothing like the real thing. Runs off a 12 gram co2 cartridge that screws into the back then there is a 1/4 ball valve inside the housing. load her up with a nerf rocket. Put in the 12gram and throw the valve which you can see me doing in the video. Gets pretty good range actually maybe better than the orginal I have read the Germans had to get in pretty close for a kill with these expecially in the first couple versions.
Very cool!! Great video too. 150 feet is pretty impressive range for a nerf rocket. Someone at my local field recently built a M72 that used Madbull rocket launchers. It worked similar to yours but didn't get as much range. I'm sure a Panzerfaust must be much harder to do because of the shape of the warhead.
Well this first one was pretty easy to put together with common things you can just buy. My second one I want to look alot closer to the real thign so that may take some fiberglass work. I have shot the nerfs out of 203 launchers even if you cut them down so thefit down the tube all the way they still do not get more than about 100 feet this was well over that. I honestly think it was closer to 200feet but I didn't break out the 100foot tape measure to measure it. I may do that to confirm it next time.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
