This is the first part of a Team Fortress 2 Medic Costume I am making for myself for Otakon this year. This is the Medic's Medigun - as accurate as I could make it with the material and time constraints. YES I made it light up (stickler for details) using two red LED's mounted inside the cannon. You can see the trigger switch on the underside handle (Its taped down in the picture where the light is on)
She is a hefty beast weighing in at around 18 pounds - But she does look good.
The front tube cannon section is made of PVC Pipe and Various fittings, with Electrical tape around the barrel. The Square Section around the barrel is Foam Core which has been cut, glued, filled and painted to blend. There are also a few bolts and nuts running through it to keep with the original game design. The handle attached was made of a 2x4 piece of lumber that I cut and hollowed to fit and house the batteries/trigger switch for the light.
The red middle section is a mux of square PVC fence post, and foam board (Insulation foam). The discs on the side are from thin 3ply plywood, with a custom PVC and Wood handle. The handle was made from a thicker plywood, which I attached to some PVC connector fittings. The handle does move forward and backward.
The back is more PVC fittings that taper down to the end where my plastic tubing will come out to attach to the Medic Pack (which still needs to be made)
The Red/Yellow wires underneath is phone cable that I painted and used some rubber fittings to attach. You generally don't notice them on the Game Model unless you look real close.
