I was thinking of makin' a total of 5 bodies. I am still debating on selling them as bodies or my other thought would be to make them into full guns and sell them that way.

Honestly when I first started the design concept it looked much more twister like. Then I ran it thru my CAM program and it came out with an approximate machining time of 5 hours :O So I went back and scaled things around and got it down to a much more reasonable 1.5 hours per side. I also think this design is going to look a lot less busy than a twister.

I still have one last idea floating around my head to further differentiate mine from a twister. Twisters lines are straight overall while they follow the contour in the z in the xy plane they are just straight lines. I was thinking about getting a little spline action going on mine in the xy while it contours to the z.

Straight profile

Spline Profile

I am not sure the spline profile is different enough overall to justify the added complexity but what do you guys think.
