    How to Build a Gatling Gun.


    I start with several small rods and a very large rod to encompass them:

    Assembled, it looks like this. Be sure everything is spaced properly:

    You can scratchbuild the rest of the chamber or . . . . :

    . . . . attach it to something pre-existing:

    Attach an ammo belt, and off you go:

    Railgun: Beginning the Build:

    I don't know what a railgun looks like, so this is based on that gun mounted on the battleship from RotF.*


    Start with some equally sized pieces of styrene:

    Angle your cut like this:

    Slice them carefully:

    Glue the two pieces together at a 45 degree angle. (Make two sets) Get some small rods roughly the same size:

    This is just a quick mock-up but they end up something like this. You'll need to invent the rest of the weapon body but this is a decent starting point:
