More Gun Sk][ff Gun Stuff

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!
