This can be either a space gun, machine gun or even a hair dryer. Both the balloons were inflated to around 3 fingers un-inflated.

Once you have made the three loops to carry on with the slace gun or machine gun you would just make an extra large loop from the remainder of the 260 balloon. But if you want a smaller gun or possibly a hair dryer just push the remainder of the 260 through the loops as in the second picture here.

With the second balloon carry on as per the pictures. I do stretch this balloon before inflating and also when the balloon is inflated just pull the balloon through your hand with some friction to warm the balloon up, this will stretch it up to an extra 3/4 inches longer (75-100mm)

Have the space gun with the bigger loop over the wrist or arm area;
For a different look it easily turns into a machine gun, put the bigger loop over the top of the smaller loop resting between loop two and three.
The second balloon that comes through all three loops needs a pinch twist close to the last loop to help the overall shape of the gun.

The blue bubble in the above post second picture number 14 needs to be pushed into the last loop once the last part of the handle has been wrapped around this bubble to again help the shape of the gun for the overall look.

It's nice to know that it's of use to someone, I still prefer my other two balloon machine gun but this is more space type and less threatening in the PC world we live in.

Super cool, I like the fact that you can make a few different items with that design.
I had to laugh......... because it reminded me of tuberware. I wonder if you all have that product over there. Most likely do. Anyway, neat stuff Graham
