A fun build here. Picking up the Nerf Vulcan blaster, i wondered if there was any cool mods that could be done to it. someone on Youtube managed to turn it into a Gatling gun.
I wanted to do that, and thus started work. part way through, friends wanted to do a Team Fortress 2 cosplay group. So my Gatling gun project was converted to one of the iconic TF2 weapons, Sasha. the Heavy's mini-gun.
Cosmetically, she passes off as Sasha, despite detail inaccuracies, such as the handle and pieces I left in Nerf orange (can't get the police mad at me now) and I've almost got her actually firing Nerf bullets through the rotating barrel. (unlike some Gatling gun props, where bullets are shot through the centre and the barrels revolve around that, Sasha here actually turns the barrel to line up the top tube with the dart firing mechanism)
While using the manual firing mode works well, I've been having issues with it firing off battery power, but hopefully I'll solve that problem soon
