Ray Gun

installation ray gun installationThe latest WHS installation is a Ray Gun which was built in the second semester of Year 10 DTW class 2015. There were five different groups of students all working towards one common goal

The original design brief was for a steam punk ray gun but students found it very difficult to design.   After researching 1950/1960’s retro ray guns the final design was completed.

The Ray Gun has been hot dipped galvanised then painted in 60’s primary colours.
