The "Ronin Foam" Monstrosity

When I look at this rude pile, I see potential!

Inspired by an episode of Stargate: Atlantis which I was watching when I was supposed to be working (or more specifically the handgun used by the character "Ronin,") I call this project the "Ronin Foam" Monstrosity. The basic idea was to take a basic PVC pipe frame and completely bury it in an entire can of structural foam, then carefully remove bits of the structural foam to create a workable weapon. As you can see, this invention is only in the initial stages (I must admit, when I first saw it, I mistook it for something Hans had spilled on the floor of my laboratory) but a little carving and some paint will fix that.

Freeze! My weapon is made of foam!

So far, my plans are simple-- working from a basic design of Ronin's handgun (from SG: Atlantis,) I am winnowing the foam down to something approximating a firearm. As you can see, I am already making progress!
