Revised TF2 Sentry Gun Schematics

Reworked all the original 1:6 scale Team Fortress 2 Sentry Gun schematics I had posted previously, so that people could actually use them. I was innundated by a single comment requesting the originals be refined. Should be fully documented to the extent that you could theoretically CAD and CNC your own parts. But would you trust the accuracy of a guy hand drawing part diagrams with a ruler, protractor and a circle template guide? Probably not!

There's 8 sheets to work with, 7 of which contain dimensioned drawings for all the individual components. They're designed to take advantage of common sizes when working with paper, so you'll see a lot of 3.175mm and 6.35mm diameter holes and tubes, corresponding to a 1/8" and 1/4" hole punch. Easier than cutting a 6mm circle by hand. Best built using 110lb cardstock and Magic: the Gathering cards.

Sheet 1: Deals with the center support post.

 Sheet 2: Front legs and rear supports

 Sheet 3: Mounting plate for miniguns and ammo drum

 Sheet 4: Ammo Drum

 Sheet 5: Rocket Turret assembly

Sheet 6: Miniguns

Sheet 7: Rear legs

Sheet 8: Miscellaneous Assemblies

Next time: tips on weight reduction and building techniques using these diagrams!

What's the mtg?

That's specifying to use Magic the Gathering cards or equivalent for structural purposes. 110lb cardstock isn't strong enough for this model.

Thank you so much, I'm working on a solid works model and I couldn't figure out what that was. It's silly because I play it ^^;
