-Make to Learn Youth Contest
1.) I made Vash the Stampede's revolver from the anime Trigun. I made this using mostly MDF and styrene because they are cheap and easy to work with. To cut the pieces I used tools such as my band saw.
2.) I got the idea to make this because I've always liked the anime and I thought it would be an easy prop to start with. Most of my know how comes from seeing how other prop makers, like volpin or punished props, make their props.
3.) I made this in my workshop down in my basement where I have plenty of tools to work with. I often have a lot of time on my hands after school so this really didn't interfere with anything.
4.) I learned to think outside of the box when encountering a problem to help overcome it and move onto the next step. But more importantly i learned to always keep a reference photo on hand when building or you might forget a few details like how I dint originally have the gaps in the front of the barrel or how the strips of styrene on my used to go to far back.
