About this Prop
Construction Details:
Gun Barrels are 15-in cardboard shipping tubes from staples, which is also where I got the foamcore for the barrel-stabilizers. Base for the rotating barrels is an old film canister I had, screwed and bolted to a dolly wheel and "L" bracketed to a 1x3. In order to make it move I taped a cordless screwdriver to the 1x3, and put a ton of friction tape on a socket wrench bit, which spins the dolly wheel. The screwdriver also acts as the handle

The entire arm assembly is covered in a PVC tube, and decorated with a ton of plastic and hot glue before being painted
Personal Thoughts:
Lot of work went into this one. After working with Gatling Guns before, I knew I needed to redistribute the weight on this one so the gun barrels couldn't be too heavy, hence why I shyed from PVC barrels in favor of cardboard. I also wanted it to move without having to build a secure compartment for a motor and wiring, and build it on a relative budget
