I am having way to much fun working on mine right now. I'm so glad we have until into july to make these things. Dropped the crossbow idea(to much impact energy) and going with a simplified air cannon now. It's going to be awsome!!

If you have a toy tank you could demonstrate some serious penetration with it :P

Here is my New Contest Entry. A quick description of what is happening

  • I cut a string holding a battery
  • Battery swings into Video tapes starting domino effect
  • Last Video tape drops onto a spoon launching a Marble into the tube
  • Marble Zig-Zags down the wall and lands in a Jar
  • The weight of the Marble activates the see-saw lifting the candle in the air
  • Candle burns through some fishing line holding up a weighted bag
  • Weighted bag drops which lifts the "breach of the barrel"
  • This cause the "gun" to launch an HE round. 
  • The HE round uses splash damage to take out the target. 

 

This gun is shooting AP rounds in the video (Smaller ball). I first used HE rounds (larger ball) but true to their nature, it was widely inaccurate and usually missed the target. Hope you enjoy. 

 

The Cats have hidden my AP round that I used during the first attempt, so I had to use my HE round. I wasn't lying about it being inaccurate but at least it took out the target with "Splash" damage. :great:

 

 

I had to film it in pieces so you could see what was happening. Hopefully thats ok. I did my best at putting the pieces together for you. 

 

Here is video walkthrough of the set-up.

  • I pull a string to start the domino effect
  • They hit a stick with a rope tied to it. 
  • The Paint Can is held in place by the rope, so when its hit, it releases the paint can.
  • Paint Can rolls into another stick holding up a weighted bag.
  • Weighted bag lowers which pulls up the "Barrel" to launch the projectile
  • Projectile then destroys the target. 

 

This gun is shooting AP rounds in the video (Smaller ball). I first used HE rounds (larger ball) but true to their nature, it was widely inaccurate and usually missed the target. Hope you enjoy. 

 

Awesome!

HBFT I hope this is OK with you but I had to re-upload this because the video broke so I have to put it up again.

Hey I got it up. Here's what's happening:

•I show what's there

•I drop a ball

•It hits several tapes and hits a toy helicopter

•The helicopter hits several books

•The books hit some more going up a ramp

It looks awesome! :) Is there any way that you could include your gamertag in the video, kind of similar to your Tank Drop video?

I hope you like it!

1- The ball pushes the palne

2-the plane crashes and pulls a string

3- the string pulls a tank 

4- the tank slides 

5- the tank pulls another string

6- the string pulls a ball that served as a weight

7- the barrel leans forward and the shells land on top of the KV-2.

It'd be hilarious if you completely destroyed your one and only target but forgot to film. *There goes the 1st place prize for you*
