Back again with more Gun Skiff gun stuff – a curved barrel shroud for the upper mini-gun.
Xbox grill looked perfect for what I had in mind, except there’s no way to bend it into the shape I needed – so did some prep work on it prior to vacuforming:
Used the home-made vacuformer to make a thinner and therefore flexible copy:
Sanded it until the bumps became holes, cleaned the holes up with a sharp blade:
Cut it in half through the middle and glued up this structure:
Undercoated the inside with Krylon black, then used boiling water to bend it into shape…
And glue and some clamps did the rest:
Hopefully I’m done with the gun detailing, so next time it will be back to the engines!
Thanks for looking!
