Rattling Fence prop

I have put this together using Bigants Actuator setup. If you want to know how it works, then his cheap and easy monster in a box thread has all the details, what to order etc.

I have simply attached some shiplap fence boards to a panel, just securing them on one side.

I have mounted the actuator system to push against the boards, and this is fired by the remote control.

I will add more boards and stain etc and include this in a larger fence section, which will have zombie arms waving through it. The rattling fence will add to effect that the zombies are breaking through.

If you like this, it would cost less than $20 to make and is very, very simple to do, so have a go. You can order all the parts from amazon, bar the pallet and some fencing.

You could always start a trend and display your stuff for a few days prior. Never know, it may catch on!
That's the plan at our house this year...all open back yard form friday to Sunday night. not sure it will catch on though but you never know. the smoke and light may draw them in.

I think more and more are embracing Halloween in the UK more. They're just taking their time doing it lol

prop turned out spot on Lawrie. I'm waiting for my controller off Ebay. I have some spare door lock actuators from my years of tinkering with cars.

I feel your pain we put so much effort in for such a small window of opportunity, but that's Halloween I guess.
