The last air-worthy Avro Vulcan Bomber is flying again!After seven million GBP, and countless hours of work, XH558 is again in the air, and has completed weeks of tests and trials, and her crew are anxiously waiting for the permit to fly.This is wonderful news, and genuinely emotional. Vulcan is an absolutely beautiful aircraft, and I was privileged to be present at almost her last flight near Manchester well over a decade ago.I have no idea what preceded Vulcan in the airshow, because all the time the preceding act was show, Vulcan was flying in a holding pattern over the Pennine hills. Whatever was flying in front of me, all I and many of the crowd had eyes for was this shark-like presence circling on the horizon, like a predator haunting a reef.When she came closer for her actual show, it was one of the few times I have gotten genuinely emotional over a machine. Her grace, power, lines...I'm even getting a lump in my throat as I type.It is one of the highlights of my life to have been there when the Vulcan crew, believing she was about to be pensioned off forever, broke air-show rules and flew over the crowd, at low altitude, with full afterburners on.It was the loudest sound I have ever heard, explosions included. My ears actually shut down. As she went over, I screamed and shouted with sheer joy, and I could not hear a noise I made!After she passed, as hearing slowly returned, I realised that it was still noisy - every single car alarm was sounding, triggered by the noise of Vulcan's passing. There were a lot of cars.It's been years since then, and it still stands clear in an otherwise patchy memory.I am literally bouncing at the idea that I might get to see her in the air again.UnfortunatelyBut there's a hitch. They've spent millions already, but they need more. Simple day-to-day maintenance costs, plus the rising price of fuel, mean that it will cost upwards of 50,000GBP per month to keep XH558 in the air. That's a lot.I don't normally do things like this, it's close to genuine spam, but I'm asking you all a favour.

Hello guys! My sons Nerf Vulcan's barrel does not rotate. I opened it up and found out that the little spring that makes the hook come back to its normal state, no longer does that. I was wondering how I can fix it. Here are some pictures of it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I know this question might sound dumb but i'm going to ask it. I am wondering if I can use stefans (modified nerf bullets) with the Nerf Vulcan. Right now I do not have the Nerf Vulcan or Stefans to test them, that's why i'm asking this. Thanks in advance!

I have a Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 but I think the range is not enough for me.I need someone to help me increase the range of the automatic firing because I have a rival in Nerf who doesn't understand that the Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 is better than his Rapid Fire 20. (Actually I think a Rapid Fire is really better than a Nerf Vulcan EBF-25 because you just pump before a Nerf War and then just casually shoot anyone who dares come to you.)

I took out the air restrictor in the main plunger thing (correctly) Everything works great however, I hear that familiar plastic on plastic sound you'd get from any other air restrictor removed nerf gun I did the same thing to my longshot but i put in pads where the plunger made contact with the plastic so it wouldn't damage the gun as much Should i do the same for my vulcan?

Researchers now have a better view of where carbon dioxide is being emitted thanks to Vulcan, a research project led by Kevin Gurney, an assistant professor at Purdue. This map shows where CO2 is being emitted in the continental United States in 10-kilometer grids and combines data from sources including factories, automobiles on highways and power plants. The map offers more than 100 times the detail of previous inventories of carbon dioxide. The image displays metric tons of carbon per year per grid in a logarithmic base-10 scale.more at Physorg

I used my nerf vulcan EBF-25 for a long time, then one day it just stopped working. I opened it up and fixed the tooth moves the belt advance wheel, then I put it back together. When I tried it in full-auto the belt advance wheel wouldn't move, and the firing mechanism wouldn't work. Oh and the only modifications I made on it was conbineing the two belts and pounded out the air resistors from the belt. Any help is welcome.

I looked at backer rods and they have aren't hollow. The regular stock nerf bullets are. The stock nerf guns have a little stick pointing out so you can put the bullet onto it, but since Stefan bullets aren't hollow they can't go onto the stick. So my question is "Can I put Stefan bullets unto un-modifed nerf guns?"

I'm (hopefully) having a nerf war for my 13th. To make it fair everyone gets a maverick, but I want uses for my larger weapons. Here's a list of them: Vulcan, Longstrike, Magstrike, Spectre and Recon. It is (also hopefully) going to take place in a hall. There are 10 people coming.

I have a couple of nerf vulcans and a nef long shot, all of them are to be modded. if anyone has any good ideas or does this kind of thing often i would much appreciate your help. i am open to most anything concerning the modification of these nerfs.

They market the stuff for installing around playground equipment. It's shredded tires. I got a load free. I plan to use some for backfill in a spot which was very rough to dig out. But I'll have leftovers. Can I vulcanize it into solid rubber? How? Mix with concrete to make it lightweight? Or will thermal changes cause rubber to expand /contract too much? What else could be done w/ it?

I'm looking for a relatively cheap motor that would be large enough to spin around a nerf Vulcan. I don't know much about what kinds of motors would be good, or where I could get them. From what I've found, they're not that common and they're super expensive. Does anyone know where I could get one for under 100 dollars? It doesn't need to be fast. Thank you in advance for your help.

Well, no one really talks about nerf guns here, and I thought I may as well bring it up. So, just like knexgunbuilder's topic on what your knex arsenal is, I want to know your nerf arsenal! Just to tell you had had three more guns: the Recon CS-6, a Nerf handgun, and some other gun that was really cheap. And also, my vulcan isn't automatic any more. (it's a long story, so don't ask) What's yours?

I have a 30+ year old motorhome which has several hoses that I need to remove from engine cooling and heater connections. They are stuck to the "pipe" they are mounted to and the pipe is fairly fragile brass. I can certainly try to cut them off but I don't want to scratch or damage the pipes. It would even be nice to just be able to remove and reuse the hoses but I can't see how that is possible. Thanks in advance for any help! Patrick

I read an article on Dave's Garden a year ago on plants with Star Trek names, and I just adore the idea of having a science fiction themed garden. Looking through some more plants, I've come across even more plants that would fit within a sci-fi/outer space theme. Coleus: Darth Vader Saturn Saturn's Rings Solar Flare Solar Shadow Solar Sunrise Vulcan Daylily: Alien Alien Contact Alien Encounter Alien Escape Pod Alien Invader Alien Landing Alien Skin Alien's Eye Android Android Dreams Andromeda Asteroid Astral Voyager Beam Me Up Beam Me Up, Scotty Ben Kirk Big Dipper Black Hole Borg Technology Cloaking Device First Officer's Log Galaxy Quest Klatuu Barata Nictu Life on Bajor Notify Ground Crew Photon Torpedo Romulan Deflector Spock's Ears Vulcan Logic Hosta: Captain Kirk Enterprise Foxfire X Philes (just for fun) Galaxy Galaxy Light Gamma Ray Kiwi Milky Way Little Dipper Lunar Eclipse Lunar Orbit Lunar Sea Outer Space Saturn Starship Striker Super Nova Venus Voyager Vulcan These lists are not complete. I looked through 5,320 daylily names out of 38,449 on Dave's Garden and then filled in with some names from the article, and I'm sure there are more genuses with sci-fi plants. The reason why there are so many hostas, daylilies, and coleuses is because they're relatively easy to hybridize and propagate. I started looking through African violets, but half-way through I was pretty sure I wouldn't find any. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some more in the Liliaceae family such as with tulips, but phew, that's a lot of plants. Looking through some of the names, it would be relatively easy to do a Lord of the Rings or fantasy-themed garden. I even found hostas called "Dot Com" and "Website". Hybridizers certainly get creative when it comes to names. I think I'll send my brother-in-law a hosta called "Twisted Sister". The image is of a basket plant I have. No neat name, but it looks kinda sci-fi in the picture.

REASON FOR QUESTION: I would like to modify a Power Wheels with a pop up berf gun for my son. So it would kind of be like a "raider" vehicle or weaponized dune buggy. This is strictly in the theory stage. WHAT I WANT: I would like to have a switch on the dash that raises the nerf gun out of the front storage compartment, or rotates it out of a cavity, or something like that, and then wire a momentary switch to either the dash, steering wheel, or horn that activates the "Battery operated Nerf". WHAT I KNOW: Unfortunately I have no working knowledge of arduino or coding. I would like to learn, but dont know where to start. I do no electronics, and R/C. Wiring the momentary switch to the "Nerf gun" should be no issue, its how to "arm" it (for lack of a better term) that i dont know. I was thinking that i could use a high torque servo, but I dont know how to wire it up to a switch, if thats even possible. I then thought about a stepper motor, but again, i dont know how, and that route seems costly. Fabricating brackets, arms, hinges, all easy. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE? AND DUMB IT DOWN FOR ME AS WELL. here are some concept pictures I was thinking of. and a few pictures of the tentative vehicle and Nerf choices. the front of the vehicle has a storage compartment that should fit a smaller nerf easily. I would just make a new split door for it, that would open up when the gun was armed. that would be done easily with servos, if their was a way to. at this point i might just make a roll cage to mount the VULCAN chain gun on and call it a day. or hack a rc remote, but id rather not. ANY IDEAS?
