Today, on Mythbusters! Adam and Jamie test the myth that a scuba diver's oxygen tank makes for an excellent makeshift explosive if shot with an incendiary round. With no time to waste, our two explosion loving thrill seekers set up a rig to test our myth!
The rig: a 9mm handgun loaded with an incendiary round and hooked onto a remote firing device, a scuba tank filled with oxygen, a high-speed camera, and (of course) two panes of bullet-proof glass.
Adam and Jamie stand behind the glass, ready to put the myth through its paces.
Adam: "Hey, Jamie?"
Jamie: "Yeah, Adam?"
Adam: "Are we actually busting a myth or did we just decide we wanted to shoot things?"
Adam: "... Works for me. Firing in 3... 2... 1...."
Been watching a lot of Mythbusters lately and felt compelled to make a Mythbusters vig. I've actually had some 'figs of the 'busters and the build team lying around from who-knows-how-long ago.
Credit for the Adam and Jamie 'figs goes to David Morgan-Mar of Irregular Webcomic (mine aren't exact replicas of his but close enough)
Also, yes, I'm aware that Adam and Jamie would no doubt be 10 times further away at the minimum if the myth involved potential explosions but I wanted to condense everything into a 6x8 vignette.
One of these days I'll have better lighting and a better camera...
Also, for those wondering, I'm not certain if I'll be able to finish any new MAS units before I go off to college. If I can, you'll get a new MAS. If not, you'll get a sneak preview / spoilers MOC of what all I've got going on behind the scenes. Also, I'll be finally delving into the plot of Project ZX and the MAS units while I'm in college.
