This project commenced as soon as I saw the game of life contest open. I did not see many people build the ray gun so I decided to go for it! I used the to scale blueprints to assist me and make reference to throughout the project. I found them really helpful and I hope you will too.

  This project consists of mainly scarp wood but also scrap metal and PVC tubing, these were all found in the house shed. Sometimes to meet the required thickness. So therefore it was mainly free apart from the paint I had to buy. My Dad helped me cut the PVC tubing in the chop saw as it was highly dangerous and also thought me a new skill, how to chisel. I enjoyed this project a lot because as the final week approached I was under pressure to get things done so I had to add time management to the project so it would be finished on time. Basically I gave myself a task for everyday. Eventually I did get it complete and I was very satisfied with the result. This project is most rewarding to whoever is going to try it especially fitting all the parts together.
  Best of Luck!

Due to massive pressure for time I just ran down to my local DIY shop and picked the paint out by only memory. Of course this is an easy adjustment for ye guys to make.
