About: Favourite games are LittleBigPlanet2 and Gran Turismo 5. Favourite music genre is drum and bass, but my current favourite song is Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood. I mainly build replicas of godly cars on LBP2. Su...

Check my H.A.W.C Version 10.0 too!

This is my first ever: 16-shot, preload-every-shot, moderate range minigun!
It's one of my sweetest looking guns because it really looks like an actual minigun!
The only negative is that the reload system takes a very long time to well.. reload, duh!
The range is about 45 ft with good quality rubberbands that are double-folded.

Weight: 1.02 kg
Length: 71 cm

-16 shots
-pretty strong
-two handles
-awesome looks
-16 shots per 5 seconds

-the shooting top is a bit flimsy
-long reload time

You likey?
So go build it!

Step 4: Rear Handle

    You guys in England, Amewrica wherever, can't top the epic shortness difference in this:

    Same sentence, different language.

    In English:
    I would like to have some fish and chips please.

    In Dutch:
    Een patatje met vis, alstublieft.
