Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Badass Lego GunsGG2 This week we take a look at Martin Hüdepohl's step-by-step guide to creating five Badass Lego Guns. There is a simple, pint-sized rubber band shooting marvel, a nine-brick magazine semi-automatic pistol, a fully-automatic submachine gun and two different types of crossbow pistols.

You can see the guns in action below:

Martin covers all the stages needed to complete any of the guns; including the tools and parts you will need and where to get them from. He also discusses how to "cross brace", a technique that allows you to build diagonally with Lego – something that was not possible with older bricks. Also covered is how to create Lego models on a computer, using a range of different programs.

Each model has a "How it Works" page and a list of materials needed, with clear, detailed diagrams showing how to complete each of the steps to successfully finish each gun. The whole process of actually assembling the pieces is pretty straightforward, and once complete, Hüdepohl runs through how to load and fire the guns.

The book's suitable for all ages, but the guns are pretty powerful, so we recommend adult supervision.

We also get a glimpse of some top secret construction plans for The Magic Moth – a primitive butterfly knife. So for you Lego enthusiasts: if guns are not enough for your heavy artillery then maybe a simple butterfly knife will tickle your fancy?

Badass Lego Guns is available now for £14.38 – saving you 40 per cent on the list price. We ship worldwide and all our orders come with free UK delivery & same working day despatch*.
