Title: Singleing a Maverick
Post by: psychoswan on April 21, 2008, 08:37:25 pm
Has anyone every posted a write up of how do this?
Iím gonna try to keep the stock barrels if possible, basically cut off one from the turret and use it.
I know it seems kinda weird but i want to keep it kinda stock, so I can use it when I play with my cousins.
But the barrel doesnt have to be stock, its just the way I plan on doing it.
And I like a lot of the cosmetics †
Iím hoping for it to look something like this.

Just polycarb the front.  Pretty simple.

Polycarbonate sheet cut it to the size of the front and glue/screw it on.

Well you could still do it the way I did in the aforementioned link, just don't cut off the part above the turret as far as I did, get a longer barrel, and extend the cardboard more. Other than that, I'd say go with GC's advice. Good luck in any case.

Acrylic is okay too.  Just make sure you cut it outside.
