Update on mini gun should bracket.

Posted by PicasaAfter the first public event of the year the mini gun needed a few mods. I knew the shoulder bracket would cause me problems as the original design just sat on top of the shoulder. Everytime Emy move quickly the gun would fall of the shoulder. To counter this two metal brackets have been fitted that make the should brack much more secure and the gun stays put even when Emy is racing around. I have also changed the ammo strips at the side. Instead of an old ribbon cable the new ones are flexible LED strips which flash and glow as the guns barrel rotates. Time will tell to see if the gear system is strong enough being made out of plastic.
