    You just need some marshmallows to complete the set-up. Is the flame thrower refillable??

    Woah.... thanks for the awesome response! I guess real-working flame throwers are your thing! I'm glad to bring something different to customizing :) 

    Thanks for all the kind comments - Algeron, bad karma 99, frenzy_rumble, andreyOfDoom, MAIDEN JAPAN, SPLIT LIP, anabolik1, OldsCut78, Solrac333, me!!, wylungz, pantherfan1, blobatron, tobuttica, Slimaximus, Mechafire, Hype1, silenth, KINGBOTZ, trex5000, mrfang2, The Veteran, OmarJT82, Paxtin, Mr. Sparklebot, imoff2186, K.B. Hewett, cheetor71, plowking, overbeast.inc, spoonman, mampy, Triceradon, Iron Core and Hotwire!

    ALPHAMAGNUS - The figure is well insulated from the heat of the flame thower so its all cool... Except for whatever the flame thrower blaster is aimed at.

    fakebuster83 - Once Armor, always Armor. 40SAR enlisted 1993. SG Armor guys would really appreciate the camo design, just like the old No. 4 uniform + the 0.5 with ammo box... haha

    Satomiblood, fateastray, StuntPrime35 - I just so happen to have a MP Megatron MISB... You have started me thinking. I've a few ideas...

    Sabrina - Without giving away too much, refills are required but probably not in the way you think. This does not use gas or liquids which makes it safe (relatively). It is still considered a pyrotechnic so is dangerous. Looking for marshmallows now.

    Thanks everyone again!

    The flame thrower is entirely self-contained within the blaster, save the electrical wires leading to the battery pack. The micro-switch on the battery pack itself activates the flame thrower.

    Maximum distance I have thrown a flame with this has been about 12ft (4m). When I shot the video, it went completely off frame and I did not have the space to go for a much wider shot so did not include it in the demo video.

    @fakebusker83 - More accurately 2 months of planning - 2 weeks of fabrication + I'm on a break now so had the time.

    We'll see what happens... ;-)

    Sick job, Man.
    Love the guns and working flame thrower. My question to you is, how much fuel does the thrower have?

    Thanks wylungz!

    @RIDUltraMagnus - Thanks. It does not run or fuel or gas.

    For those who were interested, I've uploaded larger photos onto flickr. You can see closer details of the "Jungle Camo" Prime as well as my "Old School" Prime there.

    Thanks!

    Though I respect all your work - I really wish people would not keep overpainting clear windows it never ever looks better than leaving them clear would.

    Wow. Flame. Thrower. Two words that when put together just about equal 'Chuck Norris' in comparison. The camo blends well, as does the armament. Combine that with an already well articulated figure, and it's pure awesomesauce.
