We have a wooden bottle opener very like that!
Really? What bottles do you open? Lamanade? ha ha
Perhaps that barrel reminds you of electrical subsatations! http://s0.geograph.org.uk/photos/19/81/198118_a09442f2.jpghttp://media.gettyimages.com/photos/electrical-substation-picture-id173541661?s=612x612Not sure what they are called but seem to be some sort of insulator. They were a fixture of the old horror movies that we all love. You can't have a "mad" scientist laboratory without them!http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/the-interior-of-doctor-frankensteins-laboratory-as-seen-in-the-horror-picture-id3170744https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/12/03/53/12035311b1847888d37e3ef03bf580b5.jpgSo if it was some sort of electrocannon, it'd make sense to have a lot of insulators separating the discharge tip from the rest of the chassis.
Excellent connections Lance! I see what you mean completely and yes it does make sense to have a insulated barrel. Those gothic electrodes really do look like the Lama gun! Check out Ed Valigursky's original painting for an even closer match! Well done Lance https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/42/b0/61/42b061265966f57c8009f4f6221363b6.jpg
Now I wonder what -Kevin- could do with those feet... :)Best -- Paul
I suspect a lot! That LAMA is but two feet away from reality!
Making replicas of spacex toys I've never even seen is a bit more of a challenge!
Challenge is your middle name Kev! Get down the Bathroom shop! ha ha
