The Crossroads of the Aether
So I've been toying with the idea of steam/ diesel punk Spider-man for awhile now, and I finally set out to do it this week (or start it anyways). So after some planning and makeshift blueprints, this is the first prototype for Spider man's web shooters.
Edit: The back end near my elbow is where the web (CO2) cartridge will go
P:S My apologies for the dirty mirror
I love the look of this so far, though I'm curious; do you plan to put a trigger mechanism operated by your palm/wrist somewhere on there is it intended to fire another way?
I'm still trying to devise a good trigger mechanism. I have an aluminum bar I'm going to try turning into a palm (like the original spidey) trigger, but I'm not quite sure how to go about doing that just yet.
Also, I forgot to mention in my original post that the back end near my elbow is where the web (CO2) cartridge will go.
Thanks for the feedback
I like it. Will there be any projectiles or will it just fire CO2?
I would use leather instead of nylon.
Shooting a spray of CO2 is a cool concept, but will get you kicked out of most conventions and events.
I plan to use leather in the finished product, but since this was just a test of concept, I decided to go with nylon since it was much cheaper.
Also, since most conventions don't allow any kind of projectile, I plan to use CO2 cartridges mostly for looks, but also for the "hiss" sound effect.
That makes sense. I just worry about overzealous enforcement seeing a guy with "Biological weapons" strapped to his arms. They might not get it at first.
So can my finger
Hahaha. Touche Captain Jack.
What does it shoot exactly?
That look so amazing...Almost like an.."Amazing SpiderMan" (LOL GET IT!)
This is totally awesome! You rock Suzette!
