Ok guys, my last project, the XM8, failed. What I got out of it was a brand-new mag system, it basically makes it complete the chamber. In other words, it won't fire w/o mag, which could help or hurt. Anyway, the Scar-H will have---- -true mag release -folding stock(I think) -new mag mech -tactical rails -RDS -EOTech sight -Heartbeat sensor(maybe) -M203(Maybe) -Undermounted Shotgun(maybe) -Removable "Plasticsights"  I think it will come together alright, but no guarantee. It will be posted as a slideshow first, and then(if people like it) as a full instructable.                       Thanks, Builder968

How to make a Harry Potter lighting scar? Answered

A grandson will go as Harry Potter. I would like to make a scar to spirit gum to his forehead. As a kicker I plan to put an smd LED under the appliance. Powered by a flat cell in the hair and fine magnet wire for conductors. So far I was planing to use a glue gun to form the scar on a tin can for simulated forehead curved shape.. Any suggestions on a better material or kit will be greatly appreciated !

Senior Waffleman's Scar-L Problem

Hey guys! Well, I was at a loss as to what to build on Tuesday, so i decided to build Senior Waffleman's Scar-L. I decided this for multiple reasons, among which, the gun just looks flippin' awesome! Well, I finished it Thursday (I did not have much time to build between when I began and Thursday) and I began to work with it, shooting it, editing it and so fourth. Well, the gun is horrible when it comes to shooting, and I'll tell you why. What you see in the paint image below is basically what the internals of the front of the gun look like, and you may see the problem. The mag I made was different than his, and was more realistic, but as the bullets go up the barrel, they stop as they hit the top of the barrel. When the FP hits the bullets (his shooting mech is freaking brilliant, and works well) The bullets either: 1) Don't leave the barrel, or 2) Leave the barrel at a speed of 60 meters-per-year. Everything works well, except for the fact that the bullets don't leave the barrel half the time. Tell me what you all think...? Keep in mind, I've tried lots of different ways to fix this. I tried: making the barrel taller, making the bullet heavier, hitting the bullets harder by adding more rubber-band power, and even making a breach-loading mech to at least make the gun shoot. Help!

I'm back

Hi everybody, I'm back. I got really into airsoft and real guns earlier, and neglected my K'nex. Sorry if I have not replied to your comments, I have not been on in a while, and your feedback is appreciated. Anyway, does anybody still want the M16? If so, I'll finish it off and post. Or, if somebody wanted to help me improve the internals, that'd be fine too. After that, I'll probably make a SCAR-H, as I just got an airsoft replica, so the K'nex version should be very realistically sized. I'll probably make it a realistic replica (Fake bolt, real style take down, folding/collapsable stock, etc, etc), and not a shooting model. After that, I'll remake and improve the LMG. IDK what I'll do then.  If nobody wants the M16, I'll just go to the SCAR-H. If nobody wants that, I'll go to the LMG.

TNKIT entry and FN SCAR H (Now with pictures)

This is my TNKIT entry, an F1 based car. It has built-in suspension (not independent, but on the axle), and realistic features. The last pictures are of my new assault rifle, an FN SCAR replica. The stock is different because of the internal ram mechanism, and it has Ironman rails top and bottom, with strange new rails on the sides, which hold a bipod at the moment. An ironman mag adaption allows for extremely quick mag changing, with the release lever an inch from the trigger at the front of the trigger guard. The flip-up iron sights have been modified since these pictures, and the barrel (area with the bottom rail, not the false barrel at the end) has been shortened by 2 units, making the weapon more realistic and easier to use. Uses lots and lots of y clips and hinges, and requires about 6 cut white rods (can get away with 5). The EGLM fires a large projectlie using a push trigger behind the mag (in front of and below the handle). Also for your enjoyment; my MP5 from May.

This is a new gun I made after finding about Ipod Killer's "innovative" trigger system. It uses Mepain's ram and part of the Burito Master's clip for his scar gun. The clip pushes up the ammo by itself, so all ya gotta do is pull the ram then trigger. It also uses a spring to absorb the shock of the ram.

Easiest and Cheapest way to paint a latex mask?

Hey every one. With Halloween coming I’m preparing to make my Two Face costume. Because I don’t want to paint half of my face I’m using half of an (modified) store bought latex mask. My last step should be the most difficult, painting it. The half of a mask will be doing a lot of moving so I need a flexible paint. I’m only an amateur, but have read some about painting latex. Most methods I’ve seen require mixing different substances. I’d like to get away from that if any was possible, I’d like to make this as easy as I can. The other thing is that it has to be very cheap. I’ve already spent too much money on this costume, and would like to not spend too much more. If anyone knows a type of paint that is flexible and cheap please tell me, because I really need one. Thanks every one. Hope to hear from you soon.

The Inkheart movie!

So, lots of people read inkheart, right? Well the movie is coming out in about three weeks, January 23. I was thrilled. However, I don't like the character choices. The main problem is they have this girl, Eliza Bennet playing Meggie who is 16, probably 15 at the time of filming. However, in the book, Meggie, is only 12. The 2nd problem, which isn't really a big one, is that I did not see Paul Bettany playing Dustfinger. To me, dustfinger was older, and in the promo pictures he doesn't have scars all over his face. That's all I have to say, but I digress. What do you guys think, I also think we need inkheart instructables. I'll think of one!Edit: Noone is an inkheart fan?

Gelli plate substitute

Hi. there is a new craze sweeping the craft and art community with a mono printing plate called a gelli plate. It's made out of some sort of mineral oil or gel of some sort. (i think). It's a flexible, clear mat with a soft feel and a give to it, a bit like jello. There are plenty of homemade versions using gelatin. which works fine for a while but it soon breaks up or bacteria sets in as gelatin is a food substance. Are there any clever boffin types out there that can make a similiar product that doesn't use gelatin and that has a good shelf life. I first thought of Oogoo but it's not pliable enough. This Gelli plate reminds me of the soft silcone gel that is used for scar healing, but is so expensive for small sheets. here is the link to see what I am after.

IT HAPPENED. i shoved the knife in the socket, and never felt a single volt of electricity!!!!!!!! from then on, in my mind / imagination, i saw my self as a special person, who could harness electricity. but then, in 1st grade, i met Cole O'Grady. we got into a fight, and i screamed, quote, "I hope u get struck by lightning and go to the hospital and get scarred for life!!!!!!!!". then, during a storm in december, there was severe lightning strikes. then, when i went back to school i didn't see cole for a week and 2 days. when i asked where he was during that time, and i was informed he WAS in the hospital with 2nd degree burns. now THAT, is NOT, COINCEDENCE! that is why.

Can someone please diagnose this? It's driving me crazy!

A couple days ago I got a red bump on my foot. No biggie, thought it was an ant bite. Now I had bumps on most parts of my body, and they itch like hell. They range from small to somewhat large, and they are red. They itch so bad I can't even concentrate. There isn't a lot of them, but enough to be a PITA. Right now they are on my feet, arms, toes, wrist and jaw line. I checked WebMD and it gave so many things that were really, really bad, so that was kind of scary. I don't they are too bad, but I don't want to scratch them and make scars. I've been inside mostly for the last week or so, save two days working on my dad's truck (had bug spray on), and about two weeks ago I climbed a small hill through some thick thorns, vines, and other crap. Perhaps I had a tick on me? If anyone can help, I'd sure appreciate it!

Guns To Check Out

Cool guns to check out: The Jamalam's battle rifle. Why should I? Do you want a k'nex gun that has an awesome hold, great distance, cool magazine, and working bolt? Well if you do, The Jamalam's assault rifle is perfect. Another one, is the SR-V1 by killer-k. This gun has intricate slingshot design, and very powerful range. This is definitely recommended in a k'nex battle along with all the others. I mean come on! It looks like a sniper (duh!), feels like a sniper and shoots like one too! Also, another one is Gorkem's sniper rifle. It is a awesome, sturdy, powerful choice. It is an awesome sniper. I love it, and it is filled with cool features like, a great stock, a ridiculously cool barrel, and an awesome loading system. A cool one is the fn-scar k'nex gun. It has good ratings, a cool gun, a nice system, and overall good and reliable. Last but not least everyone please watch my crome eagle rifle slideshow and say to post or not. Just type in: Crome Eagle k'nex gun slide show. I give credits to all of the guns I mentioned and am a big fan of them, well... bye!

Effects on metal

So I really like this clock.  I think I'll buy it soon. But as a beginner's art project, I'm trying to replicate some of the metal effects here.  I'm curious for techniques on how to accomplish some things, like: The back plate is copper, which the artist says is "oxidized".  I expect oxidation to turn copper green, blue, or black, not this silver/grey color.  Any ideas how this was done?  Is it just that it's a light oxidation? I really like the metal texturing here.  I've been able to replicate something similar on copper plate by hand-sanding in one direction with a fine-grained sandpaper.  But notice the vertical texturing on the backplate - how would that have been done?? I like the polished metal look of the minute hand contrasting with the reflective look of the hour hand.  How would you do that - similar way as the backplate?  Same with the gear? I've actually made what I think are much prettier nails by taking old (originally quite rusted) square iron nails, removing the rust and grinding the crap out of them with a bench grinder until I get a cool reflective finish.  Doing the grinding in patches gives it almost a hammered metal look while keeping the reflectiveness.  I think the effect is cool and really works with the "old-but-new" look of the square nails.  I'll post before+after pictures if anyone's interested.

I'm possibly back? A few oldies and memories, and just a big update forum

Wassup guys? Some of you may remember me, some of you may not. I was originally Superjustin18, but decided to change to Flumpkinz... cuz it's funny sounding! Whats NEW? Well, I've matured a lot... and I'm 13 now. That's right, all this time I've been to young for an account. But now I'm old enough, so no more guilt haha. My music taste has grown. Instead of being based on Punk and Metal, I now like Folk, Deathcore, and so many different extents of music. Another thing Is that now I actually have friends (which is the reason I haven't been on recently lol. Going back to old times, heres an oldy for Instructables. But since it's been SOOO long since I've been on, I just thought I'd ask. What are you're favorite bands? Or, if you want just post bands you listen to. Now, last time I did one of these, my heaviest band on there was Scar Symmetry. Now my heaviest is probably the Faceless.  I'll post videos below. To answer my own question The Faceless - Prison Born Avenged Sevenfold - Welcome to the Family Disturbed - The Infection Gaelic Storm - Johnny Tarr Ughh, too much more haha. Bands like Diecast, War of Ages, etc.

Does anyone know what kind of bug/spider this is??!?? Answered

 I just happened to be on floor with my ear against my sub as I'm testing something out, but then I looked at the carpet and saw this dead bug sitting there! My gf has been getting bit in her sleep, well not recently within the last week, but she has like 6-7 bites along her wrist that are weeks old now and they are not healing up worth a damn. I don't think it's a bed bug, we stayed at a friend's house a long time ago and didn't realize they had a bedbug problem, neither did they, needless to say my gf's skin is scarred all over from bedbug bites. Now we're back at my parents and I did the necessary precautions to make sure we didn't bring any with us, including I kept all her clothes and whatnot in a duffel bag outside in the shed for over a week, if it didn't kill them it at least slowed them down, then I brought it in and washed ALL of her clothes with a hot wash in the washing machine. Anyways this looks like a spider to me, and thats what she thinks was biting her because they don't look like bedbug bites, but it pisses me off really, I even sprayed all sorts of "Spider-bahn" around my room and around the perimeter of the walls, perhaps that's why I found this one dead?? Anyone help please! P.S: I live in Canada, and I've heard from a couple people that this year is really bad for bedbugs, at least up here.

Testing my ability to use Lyrics to understand the meaning of a song

Okay, so I want you to tell me what you think. I am testing my ability to tell what a song means by it's lyrics/song title. Song: Deviate From the Form Artist: Scar Symmetry Okay, so already there is a clue. The word "Deviate" means to swerve, avoid, etc. So obviously, this song is about avoiding something. Now, lest look at the lyrics. First verse: I transcend my earthly form Through some questions never asked before Question the need to be a machine That responds automatically Okay, so "I transcend my earthly form". Transcend means to outdo, or exceed. So, basically, imo basically saying that you are doing better, or knowing better than a human. Knowing whats right and wrong about some questions that haven't been asked before. I suppose they mean something like "When will the next largest technological revolution happen?" Or "What inventions will destroy our planet in the future?". Like questions technological revolutions,  and future disasters or inventions. To back up that paragraph, read the next two lines. "Question the need to be a machine that responds automatically". Or to translate that, why do we need all these machines? Do we really have to be too lazy? What's next, self folding clothes? We do not NEED all these inventions. And later in the song, it talks about how there are changes, and turning into nothing. And what I mean by that, is that there will be so many innovations, that Earth will be pretty much taken over by robots. It will be nothing. All these machines are monotonous. They do not think, or have emotions. They are NOTHING. So to sum it up, I think this song means that they are trying to avoid becoming nothing. They do not like how there is an invention for almost everything ever thought up. They are staying in the past where we did not need all these gadgets
